I was reading through the reviews, mostly for a recap on when the songs played in the movie (Seems that's not available yet, I'll just have to see the movie again) and I was aghast at the horrible reviews this soundtrack was receiving. "I was hoping for upbeat music" and "Green Day and Ellie Goulding were fun, but the rest sucks" seems to be a trending theme. And that's just wrong.

No one watches Twilight (or any of the movies following) because it's uplifting. It's a moody book series, it's a moody set of movies. Therefore, you're not going to have Justin Beiber and other crappy upbeat artists on the soundtrack. Sorry. If you're looking for top 20 pop beats, go buy the new NOW CD (if they even still make that garbage).

This album has some enchanting, peaceful songs that continue the trend set by earlier albums. I see a direct connection between some of the songs and the New Moon soundtrack that most everyone seemed to enjoy. Feist's song, "Fire in the Water," is the best example I see. It's chilling, moving, and thought provoking. And you can't beat Feist's vocals.

The most impressive songs to me seem to be the ones no one is talking about on here: Feist "Fire in the Water", St. Vincent "The Antidote", and James Vincent McMorrow "Ghosts". They aren't shallow pop hits, no. But these albums have never been about shallow pop hits. Green Day and Ellie Goulding are, by far, the weak spots in the album.

And here's an update on song placement in the movie. WARNING: SOME SPOILERS after this point. I am not 100 percent on some of these, as I only took mental notes while I was watching it. Feel free to correct me if I missed a couple.

Say what you will about the Twilight books and movies. While I'm a fan, I know perfectly well that they're dreadful and that most rational people won't like them. However, I've always found the soundtracks to be really enjoyable stand-alones with a good mix of both artists and mood. (Maybe broody, but there are usually a few stompers like Muse's "Supermassive Black Hole" and The Black Keys' "Chop and Change to liven things up a bit.) I think they've gotten the mix wrong here. It's relentlessly downbeat and/or airy. Does that fit with a movie where the Cullen family feels they're under the threat of imminent death the whole time? Sure. But there are light moments in the story, too (Emmett and Bella arm-wrestling, Bella and Edward realizing they've got an eternity of really great sex ahead of them) and the folks at Chop Shop should have tried a little harder to reflect that. And why did Christina Perri have to re-write "A Thousand Years" to reflect Bella's newly frozen status? Ick. Call me a sap, but I liked the original and this literal revamping is just silly.

I own every single Twilight Soundtrack ... the songs on the CD's used to be anthems of me ... they'd get me excited about the movies, they'd fill my car up as I drove around, I loved them -- loved them so much, in fact, I'd buy the digital iTunes album for my computer and iPod as well. I liked Twilight, loved New Moon, liked Eclipse ... then ... we got into the Breaking Dawn albums.

If the ball of awesomesauce was dropped for Part 1 of Breaking Dawn ... the ball shattered on impact in Part 2.

Gone are things I have loved about the soundtracks that came before -- the moody, almost haunting songs that guided us fans through the saga have replaced now by rock ballads and Greenday ... GREENDAY! There is nothing about the love of Bella and Edward that screams Greenday to me, sorry ya'll but it just doesn't. The redemption comes in maybe 3 songs in the entire album, but that's it and sadly, it's not enough.

Finishing thoughts: This was the END of a Saga that marked years for readers and fans ... and rather than going out with a bang, they busted and how incredibly disappointing is that?

This is my favorite of all the Twilight soundtracks, consisting mostly of slow, haunting, and emotional melodies that put me right back into the movie again.

Firstly, there's a big difference when you're just listening to the music & then when you watch the movies & the music comes alive with purpose & it reminds you of the scene that it goes hand & hand with. Watching the movie before you hear the soundtrack is a vital part of the whole musical experience that you're embarking on. The album is very well put together, you can tell the song selection was well thought out & hand picked to create a mood that is all its own just like all the soundtracks before it.

Scene by scene:
Opening Scene (Bella Wakes Up Transformed) - Passion Pit "Where I Come From"
Emmett, Jasper, Alice and Esme finish building the cottage walking to Edward & Bella - The Boom Circuits "Everything & Nothing"
Reveal of Alice's gift (The Cottage) - A Boy & His Kite "Cover Your Tracks"
Sex Scene (In The Cottage) - Feist "Fire In The Water"
Bella Arm Wrestling Emmett - St. Vincent "The Antidote"
Bella reads Alice's Letter (Back of Mechant of Venice Page) Edward & Bella Talking / Kissing - Iko "Heart Of Stone"
Bella returns from Seattle In Her Car Realizing That Her & Edward Will Die In The Battle - James Vincent McMorrow - "Ghosts"
Many Scenes (I believe it's played when Reneesme is touching Aro's Face) - Cartell Burwell "Plus Que Ma Prope Vie"
Everyone Says Goodbye After The Battle / Alice's Vision of Edward & Bella / Jacob & Reneesme - POP ETC "Speak Up"
Credits (1st Song) Final Scene (in the Meadow) / A Montage Of Credits Showing All The Stars & Characters In The Previous Films & Finally "Breaking Dawn Part Two" Closing - Christina Perri's "A Thousand Years Pt 2" (Feat.
