Those who've read my prior reviews on this subject know that I despised the "Twilight" movie with a fiery passion, but was a fan of the soundtrack. Now that they've changed directors as well as composers for "New Moon," I checked the "New Moon" soundtrack album out with some degree of eagerness. I bought it the day it came out...and I was utterly blown away.

There is not one single dislikeable song on this entire album. "New Moon" is a completely new and original work of music; you cannot find the songs on this compilation anywhere else, with each song completely original and written specifically for the movie soundtrack. The artists range from the well-known to the obscure, from the folk-rock to the alternative, and the impressive range and skill of each musician is apparent from the get-go.

The album kicks into a broodingly moody gear with Death Cab for Cutie's amazingly emotive "Meet Me on the Equinox," which bleeds into the slightly punky punch of "Friends" by Band of Skulls. Thom Yorke, the lead singer of alternative rock legends Radiohead, contributes his own dark electronic track "Hearing Damage," to be followed by the soft and introspective strains of "Possibility" by Lykke Li.

The Killers of indie-rock fame contribute the original "A White Demon Love Song," which perfectly captures the complicated relationships between Bella, Edward and Jacob throughout the story of "New Moon." Anya Marina belts out the lovely ballad "Satellite Heart," which is followed by a slinky new remix of Muse's new single "I Belong to You.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Indie-riffic soundtrack October 16, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This soundtrack shocked the indie world. Who would have thought this teen pop culture phenomenon was going to have such a strong indie-centric soundtrack. It is a very downbeat soundtrack with moody songs from moody artists (that I personally love) for a moody movie. You can just feel the fear, impatience, longing, an inadequacy in most of the songs, which are primary emotions of adolescence and most vampire fiction.

Highlights for me were Thom Yorke's (Radiohead) song "Hearing Damage." Anytime I can hear new material from this guy I'm happy. It has a similar feel to his solo release, Eraser, which I thought was great. When I read about this soundtrack I was REALLY excited about hearing the Bon Iver & St. Vincent collaboration because I'm obsessed with St. Vincent's album Actor. It definitely sounds more like Bon Iver versus Clarke but her haunting voice adds a lot the song. I really like Grizzly Bear's "Slow Life. It has their normal haunting feel with unbelievable harmony.

Overall, this is a great soundtrack and since it's geared toward teens it's an awesome opportunity for them to hear from some of the best artists in music today. It does feel a bit like colliding of two worlds since indie fans typically don't like their bands to "go mainstream." However, I hope twilight fans grasp the uniqueness of so many great artists being on one soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack October 16, 2009
By Callie
Format:Audio CD
As a fan, I've been eagerly waiting for the soundtrack and finally got my copy today. I am very pleased with this CD. I was a big fan of the Twilight soundtrack, but I can honestly say that I love this as well (maybe more).

Compared to the Twilight soundtrack, this is much quieter. With Twilight, it was a bit harder in sound and more fast paced. It fit with the hectic situations of the first novel. This New Moon soundtrack feels more somber and truly embodies the emotions at the center of the story.

This is definitely a must-have for fans of the series, or just fans of good music. But be warned, if you're not into more indie music, chances are that you won't care for this CD. But the indie feel is another part of why I really like this. Plus, I now have quite a few new favorite bands that I wouldn't typically hear on the radio. My personal favorites would be "Meet Me On The Equinox" "Friends" "Satellite Heart" and "Shooting The Moon".

I highly recommend playing this in your car on your way to see the movie in November; it gets you in the mood for the adaptation. But it's also wonderful to listen to while reading the book. Honestly, it doesn't matter what song you land on while reading, because each one is made amazingly well for the subject matter.

Oh, and you definitely get your money's worth with this. There are 15 songs and they're all of decent length, so for the $9.99 that you can buy the CD for right now, it's a steal that's sure to please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waxing moon October 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
The best thing you can say about any movie's soundtrack is that it can stand on its own, and that no matter what you think of the movie, the soundtrack is chock full of amazing music.

And the soundtrack to "New Moon" is one of those -- apparently the people behind it have gone completely indie in their tastes. Whether you love or hate the teen-vampire-infatuation flick, it's undeniable that the soundtrack is bursting with brilliant bands -- angular rock'n'roll and lush echoing pop, some of it well-known (Muse, Thom Yorke) and some relative obscure (Grizzly Bear, Lykke Li).

"Meet me on the equinox/Meet me halfway/The sun is perched at its highest peak/In the middle of the day... " Ben Gibbard sings distantly as the gentle guitars swirl around him. A storm of drums builds up every time he laments that "everything, everything ends," as his pronouncements about an unknown lover become eerier and more surreal ("A window/An open tomb/The sun crawls across your bedroom/A halo/A waning moon/Your last breath moving through you").

There's a pretty good showing of solid rock'n'roll following Death Cab For Cutie's memorable introduction -- Band of Skulls provides the buzzing, blunt-edged rocker "Friends," Hurricane Bells erupts in a buzzing storm of fuzzy bass and sharp beats with "Monsters," and Sea Wolf's "The Violet Hour" is a swirling little pop-rocker that seems to trickle down the reverberating guitar.

Then there's Thom Yorke, whose buzzy-edged electronic "Hearing Damage" is a furtive, dark little rush of sinister beauty. And of course, Muse is included in the stomping, mournful rocker "I Belong To You (New Moon Remix)."

Some of these bands are also going unexpectedly low-key to suit the mood, even if they're usually much louder.

diffrence?
The more expensive one has bonus tracks. And I am guessing that the 9.99 one doesnt. If you want to look at the bonus tracks and stuff, go on itunes and look at that one because they released it early. So you can look at the track list and play 30 sec clips of the songs and stuff.

More indie means better?
Yes, because most mainstream acts are notable primarily for making catchy music with no musical dimensions beyond that.

But then, I'm partial to several of the bands on here already.

"Monsters" song?
Its the song that plays when Edward is walking up to Bell in the parking lot near the beggining of the movie... It starts when he steps out of his Volvo.
