V/A – Music From And Inspired By Spider-Man 3

The soundtrack for Spider-Man 3 features many great bands. The Killers, Snow Patrol, The Flaming Lips, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wolfmother, Jet and even Chubby Checker contribute songs to the soundtrack. Since I bought this for the Killers song and I’m unfamiliar with all the other band’s discographies to know if their songs are found on other releases, I will say The Killers song, “Move Away,” can also be found on their b-sides album Sawdust.

Variants are a little nuts for this release, as there is the standard version (which this post is about) and four different picture disc sets. All versions of the soundtrack are pressed as a double LP. The standard version is pressed on red with black swirl vinyl and I have not seen pressing info for this color anywhere. Each of the four picture disc sets are each limited to 1,000 copies, making 4,000 total picture disc sets.

For the standard version the records come in a gatefold jacket with full color photo dust sleeves. These dust sleeves are made of very thin paper, probably one notch above tissue paper. As a result they are wavy when you first take them out of the jacket and they will likely tear very easy so be overly cautious when handling this record when you go to play it.
