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 "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" is one of those. Whether you love or hate the teen-vampire-infatuation series, it's undeniable that the soundtrack has some excellent (if less indie than the last one) bands -- expansive rock'n'roll and lush echoing pop, some of it well-known (Muse, Vampire Weekend) and some relative obscure (Florence and the Machine).

"Tear me down, they can't/take you out of my thoughts/under every star/there's a battle I've lost..." It opens with Metric's "Eclipse (All Yours)," a beautifully layered pop melody filled with shimmering rough riffs; after that it segues into the painfully passionate "Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)" by Muse -- a lament that explodes into a supernova of dark racing riffs and wailing vocals.

There's a pretty good rock'n'roll showing after that, with the Bravery's fast-moving angsty "Ours," the Black Keys' raw bluesy "Chop and Change," the Dead Weather's slow-burning bleak "Rolling on a Burning Tire," and the mildly funky folk of Cee Lo Green's "What Part of Forever." The best: UNKLE's collaboration with the Black Angels is a brilliantly eerie, murky rocker, while Vampire Weekend slips effortlessly into the expansive, glittering "Jonathan Low."

Then there's the pop songs, which are even more remarkable -- Florence and the Machine's exquisitely spooky "Heavy in my Arms," Fanfario's sprightly "Atlas," Sia's haunting strings-and-piano ballad "My Love," Band of Horses' starlight-filled "Life on Earth," and Howard Shore's bittersweet piano melody "Jacob's Theme.

I loved the New Moon soundtrack. The "indie" sound of that album was a perfect fit for the mood of the book/movie. The album also stood alone as a great collection of music without the Twilight connection. I was therefore looking forward to the Eclipse soundtrack, and purchased it the moment it became available. I'm only on my third listen, but I'm already extremely happy with the quality of music selected. The songs are mostly upbeat, with a few perfectly placed melancholy ballads. A great way to find new music, as I hate listening to mainstream radio. Two thumbs up to music supervisors Paul Katz and Alexandra Patsavas for compiling another fantastic listen.

I'm taking this moment to redeem my last review from the New Moon soundtrack. I was not smart in the fact that I posted the review probably a day after I first listened to the CD and I'm sorry to say I didn't give it the justice and credit it truly deserved. I wasn't born a fan of Indie music. As another reviewer has stated, you need to take some time to approach this particular style. If you don't, you'd probably turn away from it after the first listen. But after some time and hitting replay many many times over, the New Moon soundtrack turned out to the be one of my favorite compilation of songs I have ever come across. I still listen to it over and over, even a year later. And now, I was so excited for this new Eclipse soundtrack. I kept thinking - "Please have indie! Please have indie!" (diehard fan now people...it happens). And...it does kind of sort of have indie...but not really. This CD has a more of an alternative, edgy feel to it - especially with songs like "Chop and Change" and "Rolling In On A Burning Tire." And you know? I kind of love it. It's like I've been transported inside Jacob's head. Although the only drawback I'd say is this: yes, new moon was probably the saddest storyline and I thought the score of the film fit perfectly. But Eclipse has always been the more tragic of all four books. Maybe it's because I'm a Jacob fan, but really, he's hurting folks! And there's a bitter edge to him now as he is so hopelessly in love with Bella. So in this soundtrack, I wish there were a little more tragedy to it. I definitely felt some of it in the beautiful track "My Love" and then especially in the haunting melody of "Jacob's theme." I can picture the direction the score will take and I think I will be quite pleased, thank you.Read more ›

I'm a huge Twilight fan, so I think I would love anything associated with it. Putting the Twilight connection aside, this album is great! When the free sneak peek was available a few days ago, I listened to it all day and never got sick of it. Now that I own it, I plan to listen to it non-stop for weeks, and won't get sick of it! As I listen to the songs, I try to imagine where they will fit with the story in the movie. This album is highly recommended to everyone, not just the Twilight-obsessed. (I'm one of the Twi-Moms, by the way, so it's not just for the teens). Buy the album and enjoy!!

First, let me say I'm a huge fan of TWILIGHT everything, and I pre-ordered this CD ahead of the movie. Dude, it's dull. Even from the perspective that this is Jacob's movie, it lacks the edginess that characterized the first two albums.

During the first movie I sat up in my seat and LISTENED to the TWILIGHT soundtrack. I mean, "Supermassive Black Hole"? Fabulous! The songs by Paramore? Wonderful! "Full Moon" by the Black Ghosts? Delightful. (Incidently, their album is great, too. Not on this album but an undeniable asset to the movie was Radiohead's "Fifteen Steps." And, of course, Pattinson himself, although I wish the track was "Let Me Sign" instead, but I'll take what I can get.

The NEW MOON C/D had "Shooting The Moon" with its surprisingly big finish. "Monsters" had me moving. "Rosyln" and "Slow Life" weren't edgy but they were innovative and unique.

ECLIPSE in contrast can only point to "Chop and Change" as having any meat to it. "Heavy in Your Arms" was the other track that even remotely caught my interest. Everything else was just there. When you consider that ECLIPSE was leading up to an intense vampire war, what's with such an uninspiring soundtrack?

When I go to the movies, I want the music to HEIGHTEN my experience. I want it to BE THERE, subliminally tugging at my attention while I'm engrossed in the action on the big screen. I want to mentally register that "Hey! This is a cool song!" without taking my eyes off the action. I want to search the end credits for the name of the band and the track. That being said, not one song on the ECLIPSE soundtrack aroused that curiosity in me. It flat missed the boat.
