5.0 out of 5 stars ***CONTAINS SPOILERS: Doesn't Fall Short Of Brilliant. December 1, 2011
By Eden
Format:Audio CD
Firstly, I suggest one watch the movie before purchasing because once one see's how each song is perfectly timed to fit the scenes they'll love the songs even more especially because they'll be able to fit an image with their favorite song! Fortunately, I'm a diehard Twilight Fan that remembers each scene with the song. Therefore I'll match the key ones. The overall vibe of the album is softer than all of the soundtrack's before it (trust me people if you watch the movie you'll understand that it matches the scenery), yet it has a different soulful edge to it that up until this soundtrack, Twilight fans would not be used to--That doesn't necessarily mean that the material is any less suitable it just means that I expected a different reaction to this soundtrack than to all the others that are more up in the "Alternative" alley in music. Songs like "Neighbors" By Theophilus London (who I expect to blow up or at least become better known in the near future), "It Will Rain" By Bruno Mars. That fits Jacob's point of view.

Since the movie starts with everyone getting the invitations to Bella & Edward's wedding you can't expect much less than an intense softness from its soundtrack. The movie then goes into Bella training to walk in heels for the huge wedding Alice has single handedly decorated with her "Vampire speed" & buoyancy touch. It needs to be said before--The scenes don't go exactly hand in hand with the track listing. In fact, the opening track "Endtapes" By The Joy Formidable plays in the end credits starts half-way into the song. The lyrics of "Endtapes" perfectly shadows that the Saga is ending with the chorus lyric: "Sellotape end to, a story that is ending".

4.0 out of 5 stars Set the night on fire if we want to November 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD
There is only thing about the Twilight movies that I actually like -- the soundtracks.

Overall, the soundtracks for these movies have been excellent, with some truly sublime songs by talented artists. And I don't have a lot to complain about with the "Breaking Dawn Part 1" soundtrack, which continues the tradition. A few of the choices are headscratchers (Bruno Mars? Really?) but the majority weave a delicate, bittersweet atmosphere over some very enjoyable pop tunes.

It kicks off with The Joy Formidable's "Endtapes," which is a pretty solid way to begin the album -- it's a sprightly song that seems to swing between marchlike beats and swirling pop melodies. Then we have Angus & Julia Stone's "Love Will Take You," a wistful, mellow little folk-pop song that lifts you up and cradles you in a silken wash of violin.

That feeling is carried over through most of the songs -- we have sorrowful, romantic piano ballads by Sleeping At Last, Aqualung & Lucy Schwartz, Mia Maestro and Iron & Wine; the thumping smoky defiance of Belle Brigade's "I Didn't Mean It"; the gentle soaring acoustic guitars of Christina Perri and Imperial Mammoth; and the tinkling prettiness of Cider Sky's "Northern Lights."

But there were a few songs that stuck out like sore thumbs. Bruno Mars' "It Will Rain" just drips with over-the-top drama, and it feels clumsy compared to the subtler songs that surround it. Also, Theophilus London's "Neighbors" is... a rap. That REALLY doesn't fit with the other songs. Whose idea was that?

However, the rest of the album feels oddly cohesive, despite being made by several different artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Beautiful December 15, 2011
By Rebecca
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Breaking Dawn soundtrack is by far my favorite of the soundtracks, but even more so this score is my favorite of the scores. I had my doubts about Carter Burwell returning, because I didn't really like his score for Twilight at all, but it is like he has become a whole new composer on this album. He actually explains a lot of his reasoning in the liner notes:

"Three years ago, when I wrote the music for the film 'Twilight', Bella Swan was a fairly typical teenager, at fairly typical high school, in a fairly typical - if rainy - American town. The music I wrote attempted to play that world and the ways in which love shifted it's foundation.

"While Bella is still Bella, the world in which 'Breaking Dawn Part One' takes place is no longer typical. Bella is marrying a vampire, is planning to become a vampire herself, while her best friend is a shape-shifting wolf. And that is literally only the beginning.

"Bella's life is no longer that of a typical teenager and the music I wrote for this film is different as well. In many ways this film encompasses Bella's entire adult life - leaving home, marriage, pregnancy, birth, death - and so the music covers a lot of ground as well. While the score to the first film was intimate and centered on guitar and piano, this one grows dramatically in scale, eventually incorporating a symphony orchestra, choir and a battery of percussion. It also traverses wider and wilder emotional territory, and does so in ways that are frankly melodramatic.

"How else would you describe a scene in which a vampire and a man-wolf perform an improvised Caesarean section on the girl the both love, no one knowing what they're delivering?

Are you being serious?!
I completely agree. I'm a huge fan of movie scores in general and I've always been impressed with the Twilight Scores and I'm super disappointed Summit is doing this. Normally a score comes out a day or 2 before the movie is released, not weeks after! This is ridiculous!
