    Although the movie sucks pretty badly the album's to the movies continue to get greater and greater.

    The song's are FANTASTIC and are just so so so good beyond description.

    I just do not understand at all how this has a 4.8 average rating. This is probably one of the best movie soundtracks I've heard with well respected and critically acclaimed musicians like St. Vincent, Bon Iver, Thom Yorke, Grizzly Bear and Death Cab. What could there possibly be not to like? I absolutely do not get it.

    3-4 good songs at most with Grizzly Bear being one of them. The rest are nothing special.

  1. Despite a few upbeat moments that stick out like a thumb that isn't sore, songs like Grizzly Bear and Victoria Legrand's "Slow Life," Editors' "No Sound But the Wind," and Bon Iver and St. Vincent's lovely, truly odd "Roslyn" are morose enough for die-hard Twilight fans and stylish enough to please the most discerning music snobs.
  2. When a soundtrack works this well, with each track slotting naturally into a strongly cohesive body of work, you begin to wonder about the clamour that is sure to come from bands and singer songwriters to put their work forward towards featuring on the next film's soundtrack.
  3. Think of New Moon as a sort of survey course in new-now-next rock: a mixtape with teeth.
