Twilight Soundtrack MAG

There was one thing besides the movie that die-hard Twilight fans were waiting for this November. On November 4th, the “Twilight” movie soundtrack was released.

To be honest, I felt a little embarrassed pre-ordering the CD. Didn't obsessed fans do that kind of stuff? Didn't teens who scream whenever they see a shiny silver Volvo do that stuff? Was I becoming a crazy Twi-hard?

The first song sets the mood for the album. I think Muse's “Supermassive Black Hole,” which played during the baseball scene, is the best song on the CD. The way its fast-paced rhythm matches the singer's slow but cool voice makes you want to play ball in the rain. Okay, maybe not, but you get what I mean.

Then there is the band that I believe fits perfectly with the Twilight phenomenon. Paramore has always been a top contender for a spot on this album, and it's not surprising why: their music just screams teen angst. And their song, “Decode,” in my opinion, sets the tone for the entire movie.

I'll admit that the first time I listened to the album, I immediately skipped to track 10. My incentive for buying this CD was to hear Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen in the movie) sing “Never Think.” Since his catapult to stardom, some of his music has appeared on the Internet. So it was no surprise that he would lend his vocals to the soundtrack.

Pattinson's music has been compared to Jeff Buckley: bluesy with lots of groaning. But there is also a soft, subtle quality to his voice – completely swoon-worthy. Yes, I have a crush … leave me be!

Other artists on this album include the Black Ghosts, Iron & Wine, Linkin Park, and Blue Foundation. And of course, the soundtrack wouldn't be complete without “Bella's Lullaby.”

I believe the CD does justice to the book and movie. Though I wish it had more fast-paced songs, I truly enjoyed it.

I agree.  I don't have a problem with people liking Twilight but I don't enjoy it myself.  Muse is awesome.  I bought four of their albums this summer.

I liked this review, too, even though I don't watch Twilight.

I found the soundtrack last July at a yard sale, and it took all I had not to run around screaming (and no, I am NOT obsessed). My reaction was almost the same when I heard "Never Think" for the first time. Awesome review!!

AGREED! the Twilight soundtrack is one of the few overlaps in mine and my Mom's music preferences. I'm currently workign on learning Bella's Lullaby. And I have a little crush on Edward too... and if anybody has a problem with that they can take that problem elsewhere.

I love I Caught Myself. (i don't like twilight at all. in fact, i even got rid of the twilight cover art when i downloaded I Caught Myself to my itunes) I'm sad that Paramore was used for the soundtrack, though. Paramore is just too awesome to be associated with twilight.

It annoys me how the Iron and Wine song, American Mouth, had ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with any themes in the movie at all. It's like when Ronald Regan used Born In The U.S.A as his campaign song.
