One of Elfman's most achingly pretty scores. I wish he had tried his hand at stuff like this more often.

"You don't understand! Please, this is all I have! I'm nothing without this suit!"
Spider-Man: Homecoming (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Michael Giacchino

Probably the most lighthearted and upbeat of the Spider-Man scores so far. Giacchino’s Spider-Man theme get’s plenty of time to shine (particularly in “Monumental Meltdown“) throughout the score. Though I believe he could’ve incorporated the 60s theme more into the score instead of just teasing it during the Marvel Studios logo. Even though the Vulture theme has grown on me a lot, I still feel that it’s a bit contrived with how menacing it attempts to be throughout the score. It’s far from a mediocre theme, but it comes off as a typical villain theme especially by Giacchino standards. The Liz theme is decent but doesn’t get to develop much, which is probably the fault of the movie due to Peter always choosing his responsibility as Spider-Man over committing to either a friendly or romantic relationship with her. So Liz’s theme never evolves unfortunately. Even though I think Tyler’s Iron Man 3 theme (for Iron Man) pretty much characterizes MCU ‘s Tony Stark/Iron Man more than the previous MCU Iron Man themes did, Giacchino’s more optimistic Iron Man/Tony theme perfectly depicts how much of an inspiration he is to Peter/Spidey.


"I never thought I'd be able to do any of this stuff. But I can. Anyone can wear the mask. You can wear the mask. If you didn't know that before, I hope you do now. Cuz I'm Spider-Man. And I'm not the only one. Not by a long shot."
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse (Original Score) - Daniel Pemberton

Such a unique Spider-Man/superhero score. In fact, Pemberton’s score did more for me than the movie itself did.

" Excuse me, sir! I can help! Let me help! I'm really strong and I'm... sticky!"
Spider-Man: Far From Home (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - Michael Giacchino

Giacchino’s Spider-Man theme doesn’t take up much of the spotlight as it did in Homecoming. Giacchino takes a more subtle/restrained approach with his Spidey theme for the majority of the score. However, he still manages to make good use of his Spidey theme whenever it recurs. Giacchino’s catchy Mysterio theme, which is very John Powell-esque (i.e. Hancock) during certain renditions, pretty much steals the spotlight throughout Far From Home, which is fitting if you’ve seen the movie. Compared to Vulture's theme Mysterio’s theme is also the superior villain theme of the two. Vulture's theme isn’t as complex either. Arguably Mysterio’s theme is right up there with Elfman’s Doc Ock theme and Zimmer’s Electro theme as some of the most clever and over the top fun villain themes in the Spidey franchise. There’s also a very ominous and mysterious secondary Mysterio theme (i.e Mysterio’s Illusions theme), which at certain points plays counterpoint to the main Mysterio theme. MJ and Peter are given a somewhat awkward romantic theme, which get’s fleshed out more than Liz’s theme from the last film, but is serviceable at best. Nick Fury/S.H.I.E.L.D. is given another theme (what is it like their fifth theme?), which perfectly depicts how authoritative and righteous Fury/S.H.I.E.L.D come off in the movie. Even though the album is slightly overwhelming with the 80 minute run time, Giacchino‘s Far From Home is an excellent follow up to Homecoming. We’ve been blessed with a refreshing variety of distinguishable Spider-Man scores, imo. It also seems that each Spidey score hits a certain spot for me.
