AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Using the rap-meets-alternative Judgment Night soundtrack as a blueprint, the soundtrack to the dark, violent comic book fantasy Spawn boasts collaborations between rockers and electronica artists. Conceptually, the album is intriguing, but it's also flawed, since most electronica artists flourish when they work without the structural restraints that tie down most rockers. Furthermore, many of the rockers on Spawn: The Album are heavy rockers, which means they tend to overwhelm any of the subtleties of the electronica artists. And, outside of that, only a few of the pairings make sense -- the Prodigy and Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello make for the best teaming, but Henry Rollins and Goldie are intriguing as well. Often, Spawn sounds like unrealized ideas and failed experiments, which is too bad, because many of the artists here could have done much better.
