A perfect score to represent an amazing character.
That's great. Glad to see someone else who gets it too. I never understood all the negativity for this score. I guess it's just a matter of taste. The score is very underrated, imo. The score's also complex and makes clever use of the themes (especially Spidey and Peter's) in a way that a lot superhero movies before haven't, imo. Elfman's score is a very textural score. The themes in it have so many layers. Elfman was able to do so many things with the themes.

You should comeback when I get to Spider-man 2 (on my continuing defense of Elfman's scores in the last decade). B/c you ain't seen nothing yet. I've got a lot of things to say about that score. It'll take some time though b/c I still have to talk about Elfman's Red Dragon, Hulk, and Big Fish score (before I get to Spidey 2). I can't wait myself.
