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 with you on super massive black hole. I reallllyyyy like muse. But my favorite on the album was leave out all the rest by linkin park. They are definately the best band on the album.

I personally think everything except Robert Pattinson's songs, was awesome.  He just slurs too much in his songs and he is very nasal

I liked your review a lot because I felt you put some of your personality into it. It was very honest. Unfortunately, I do not agree with you about the CD though. I didn't really enjoy it. Great job though! Can't wait to read more.

i loved ur review! you had that casual way of writing, and u didn't just say, 'its good,' u explained urself. i read the reviews on teenink often, b/c i write movie and music reviews for my school newspaper, and this has been one of the best yet!

on top of it, i absolutely love the CD! paramore is my favorite band (as u can tell from my profile picture) and i love twilight! :)

what is so anoying about the soundtrack is that it made a lot of less-known bands that people ignored really popular and now people who liked them in the first place have to put up with a bunch of posers who don't know any songs by the bands but their hit singles and what was on the twilight cd.i love the cd, but hate what it did to those bands.
