"The Hunger Games" is one of the most anticipated movies of the entire year -- and so the music is almost as anticipated.

Well, despite the presence of Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift, it's a very NON-poppy collection of songs -- it's a smooth combination of folk, rock, and country, imbued with a sense of ominous bittersweetness. There are a few rock numbers mixed in, but "The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond" is a very quiet, haunted affair.

It kicks off with Arcade Fire's slow-blazing "Abraham's Daughter"; it really brings across a dark, desperate feeling with a girl's swirling vocals in the middle of it all, with danger roaring on every side of her. It is AWESOME.

From there, we hear a string of quieter songs -- the Secret Sisters' softly uplifting "Tomorrow Will Be Kinder"; Neko Case's rippling "Nothing To Remember"; the Civil Wars' trembling duet "Kingdom Come"; the Low Anthem's murky "Lover is Childlike"; Jayme Dee's warmly contemplative "Rules"; and finally Birdy's bittersweet piano ballad "Just A Game."

Maroon 5 also abandons their usual sound, producing a rippling, dark ballad called "Come Away To The Water." As for Taylor Swift... "Safe and Sound" is a misty, soft-edged ballad that sounds beautiful, but "Eyes Open" is sharper and a bit shriller.

But in the midst of all this mellow, softer stuff, there are a few rock numbers. There's Kid Cudi's buzzing, threatening "The Ruler and the Killer," and Glen Hansard's overwrought "Take The Heartland." And God bless 'em, the Decemberists produce a perfect fusion of folk/country and rock in "One Engine."

I expected a few more fast-moving rock numbers in "The Hunger Games," since the movie is about a fight-to-the-death tournament -- meaning there's probably lots of action.

I read the reviews before I purchased this CD. It seemed like a lot of the poor reviews were written because people didn't like the type of music, or they suddenly realized that none of these songs were actually *in the movie*.

First off, If they paid any attention at all to the movie, they would have already known that there were not any songs with words in the movie at all (except maybe when Katniss sang that Meadow Song). I don't know the director personally, but I would venture to guess he probably didn't want any songs in the movie because it would have been distracting and would have made the situations seem less *real* or in the moment. This movie was about Katniss and it was supposed to be us inside her thoughts as she went through all of the situations that she encountered after the Reaping.

There is another CD that has the original movie score The Hunger Games: Original Motion Picture Score if they are looking for the actual background music used in the movie.

This particular CD, however is a collection of songs inspired by the movie/book. Overall, I think they got it right. All the songs on this CD have this sort of haunting quality about them that is reflected in the storyline. Most of the songs are a type of folk music which makes sense, because I'm pretty sure the folks in District 12 aren't rocking out to Nicki Minaj or Justin Beiber while they are mining coal. The folk/country blend in the music reflects on the simple life that the district citizens lead.

Wben the soundtrack list was first revealed I was skeptical about a few of the choices. I literally said WTF when I saw Kid Cudi on there. I take it all back. With the wide array of artists it could have sounded horrible, but it doesn't. All of the tracks tie in very well with the general atmosphere and themes of the novel/movie. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the album flows. Well worth the money. I have a feeling I'll be playing this on repeat for quite a while. Three more days until the world will be watching. May the odds be ever in your favor. When it comes to this soundtrack, they certainly are.
