Weaker than the others,
This review is from: Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 (Audio CD)
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.
