5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for any Twilight fan! December 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I'm thrilled that the filmmakers decided to release the "Twilight" movie score, composed by Carter Burwell. After devouring the "Twilight" soundtrack and listening to it non-stop for a few weeks now, I was pleased to have my hands on the score and actually relive the background music from the movie.

This score does not disappoint. If you're a fan of the film, then the score is a wonderful way of taking the movie with you, so to speak. From the opening scenes ("How I Would Die") to the breathtaking conclusion ("Edward at her Bed"), this score covers the various moods, emotions, suspense and romance of the film. To truly get the full musical experience of the film, you really would want to get this and the original soundtrack because these two go hand-in-hand. If you're a fan of the books, then this would be the perfect CD to listen to as you snuggle up to read (or re-read) the books and dive into Bella and Edward's world. And if you're a soundtrack fan, then this CD - under the very capable hands of Carter Burwell - should be a worthy addition to your classical score collection.

This score does a superb job of covering the 'light' and 'dark' facets of the film. Darkness is represented by tracks like "Treaty," "Humans are Predators Too" and "Showdown in the Ballet Studio." Lightness is represented in "I Dreamt of Edward," "The Lion Fell in Love with the Lamb" and "Dinner with his Family." My favorites would have to be the soaring and beautiful "Bella's Lullaby" and the unapologetically romantic "The Lion Fell in Love with the Lamb" (which also happen to be some of my favorite parts in the movie - the meadow scene and the tree-climbing/piano scenes).

I bought this CD because I am a big fan of the books and the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly Edward and Bella December 11, 2008
By C. G.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mainly, the word "passion" comes to mind when listening to this cd. It's so magificent and beautiful. Of course, this music follows the movie, but works while reading the book as well just as easily.This music is compelling, heart-wrenching, and endearing to the listeners. It tugs at anyone's heart-strings and lifts you up only to knock you down and again make the full circle of lifting you up.

You can practically hear Bella and Edward falling into love during the course of the music. The album best represents their desires, their fears, the terror(s) they face, and the unexplicable love they share for one another. This score was made with love and I recommend this to any "Twilight" fan. After listening to this album, it would be hard not to bask in the optimism that love promises-especially in Edward and Bella's case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Score for a Great Movie and Book December 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Carter Burwell is an extremely talented composer and I greatly enjoy the score to the movie. I only wish certain pieces were longer, but that doesn't deter me from playing the CD constantly, both at home as I re-read the series, on the way to work and just to relax with. I hope he continues on with the rest of the series as it's developed and made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it, NOW December 20, 2008
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I was totally oblivious about a book called Twilight.
Then,I saw the movie trailer for Twilight. I was intrigued.
So I bought the book.

And now have lost a HUGE segment of my life.
And I don't want it back.

I have the whole series of novels now. Absolutely amazing story.

Read them for the romance, for the action, for the all-consuming tale that this author, Stephenie Meyer, has made.

But read them.

I still haven't gone to see the movie. Movies have a way of implanting and removing the images that a good book makes in the mind. My own imagination comes up with better images and faces than some director/casting agent/producer does. (I still can't get the image of Elijah Woods out of my mind when I think of Frodo <shiver>)

After listening to a few samplings from the score of Twilight, I was hooked. Bought the download and am listening to it now. I can watch the movie (without spoiling my own mind's images) and create the characters for myself, with my own interpretations of Bela and Edward.

Buy this album. The music is superb. The images it creates will be with me always.

Five Stars Plus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Work, Maestro Burwell December 4, 2008
By Erynne
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Carter Burwell paints the vivid and complex story of Twilight through these masterful compositions. The same handful of melodies pervade nearly every piece, but subtle changes in key, rhythm, dynamic and instrumentation turn them into something new and unique to each song. The almost tribal drive of the drum rhythms communicate well the primal undercurrent in the story, while beautiful and mysterious melodies vividly highlight the intensity as well as the "forbidden" element to Edward and Bella's love. The darker pieces dedicated to the bad vampires skillfully communicate the one, most important thing about these antagonists: Danger. Burwell is excellent, and composed a score PERFECTLY FIT to the story of Twilight. Well done, Maestro Burwell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hauntingly beautiful music....... December 16, 2008
By Vixen
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
O.K. - obviously I'm a twilight fan. That being said, this CD is terrific. It's amazing how much emotion the score contributes to the movie. There is so much going on during the movie and so much great music, but it's not just the soundtrack (which is also terrific, by the way!). Just a note to those that may not be aware - this CD is instrumental, so if your looking for something like the soundtrack, this is not it. It is, however, a great companion to the soundtrack. Absolutely beautiful music.

Who's the artiist...Song- "I found you"
The name of the song is "Flightless Bird, American Mouth" by the group Iron & Wine. It is on the sound track which I'm sure you have probably found by now. It's one of my favorite though so I couldn't help but try to help you find it. Enjoy!

There are two soundtracks. One with the music of Muse and Paramore and such, and this one is just the score from the movie.

Rob's Lullaby should be a bonus track
I definitely agree with you that Bella's lullaby is supposed to be the piano only and that I also like Carter's version, but all the other instruments involved kind of threw me off. If they gave us Rob's version of the lullaby that would be amazing!! He is such a talented person and if they could... Read More
