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.

Stephenie Meyer talked about muse a lot in the back of her books, so i asked my sister about it. She said "yeah, they're good," so i went searching for what song they sang in the movie. We bought supermassive black hole and uprising, i think. I also liked the Black Ghost's Full Moon and I've always been a Paramore fan, so it's kinda awesome to hear them sing like the whole Twilight plot in a song. you're right, good article!!!!!!

I'm not a big fan of the movie or book anymore, but I really liked the soundtrack. Paramore's one of ny favorite bands, and I also really liked the Linkin Park, Muse, Collective Soul, Mutemath, and The Black Ghosts songs. The others were okay-I found them kinda boring. The only one I really hated was that Perry Farrell song. Made mr wanna shoot something. In general, though, I thought it was really good. Could've been a little better, but still good. :)

Ok. I am split on the whole issuse of twilight. I was one of the first poeple to read it before it was all the rage. I loved them. Then when the movie came out I was excited to see. I did and I didn't really like it. The chareters are very flat in the movie and continue to stay that way into the New Moon. And now sadly, I'm starting to really not like both the books or the movies cause on the over barring Fangirls (and some fanboys). They freak when ever the see or hear Edward or Jacob or both. There are girls in my school who have gotten into fights over who would be better for him. And I swear, if Taylor Lawtner were to walk in, the gils would probaly carry him away.

Over all, I am strictly a book fan. I will stay that way untill the hipe and crazyness calms down and I can acually sit in a theater or at home without haveing my ear drums blown out.

I hated the movie, it ruined the whole book. The songs "Leave Out All The Rest", "Decode", and "I Caught Myself" kept me watching though. New Moon I heard was better, but still could have improved some. I have high hopes for Eclipse and especially Breaking Dawn.

I absolutely love the Twilight Movie Soundtrack! My favorite songs being: "Leave Out All The Rest", "Flightless Bird, American Mouth", and "Bella's Lullaby". I love all the other a lot to though!

I thought R-Patz sounded drunk when he sang Never Think. He mumbles half the words and you can't understand any of it.

I think linkin park's "Leave out all the rest" is the best track of the cd....it perfectly captures the film's mood,at the end of it.

P.S-I love KRISTEN STEWART.Anyone who knows her personally can pass her this piece of info!!

first off i am sorry for offending twi-fans in advance, but the movie ruined the literacy of the book. the movie changed the vibe and brought a bubble-gum popularity to the book and made me sick to read it. However, Meyer is still a great author and the CD was amazing. I loved it. I just dont think Kristen Steward was that good and Rob was believable... it was too over done.
