Product Description

BBC Review

With a line-up including Beck with Bat For Lashes, Muse, Metric, The Black Keys, Vampire Weekend and Band of Horses, it's obvious that the third soundtrack compilation in the Twilight series of films is aimed at a more mature audience than that of the movie itself. The cinematic saga and its parent novels are of huge appeal to the teenage market; but its tale of human-vampire romance does seem to connect exclusively with those yet to fly the nest.

So the powers that be behind these accompanying albums deserve applause for courting a demographic which otherwise would probably not engage with Twilight in the slightest, unless required to accompany underage progeny to the cinema–the first two films were certified 12A, undoubtedly to the chagrin of innumerable rather-be-elsewhere parents. The cynical will comment that it's merely a method of extracting income from a different market sector–but much like the last instalment, New Moon, there's the feeling that consideration beyond the usual call of duty went into the assembling of this 15-track end product (expanded with material from Battles and Bombay Bicycle Club if purchased in its deluxe edition). 

As they did for New Moon, Muse contribute an exclusive number. Unlike last time around, though, this effort is woefully substandard compared to the band's very best. Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever) is every second as terrible as its title, an undercooked-yet-overblown offering finding Matt Bellamy substituting playful sci-fi psychobabble for lyricism of a sickly saccharine slant. It's evidence anew, if any was needed, that Muse are only good when they sound like they're laughing at themselves; with faces straight, they're an awful emo-era Queen. Far better is Sia's My Love, which tackles matters of the heart with a porcelain-delicate beauty that should further anticipation for the Australian singer's forthcoming fourth studio album, We Are Born. 

Let's Get Lost, the Beck and Bat For Lashes collaboration, finds the pair exchanging spectral verses atop beats echoed into luscious layers reminiscent of the Cocteau Twins and The Knife. It doesn't do a great deal across four minutes, but every subtle shift is orchestrated excellently. Academy Award-winning Canadian composer Howard Shore closes the set with the one instrumental included, Jacob's Theme. It acts as both a preview of the score proper and a fine climax to a collection that continues the Twilight series' commendable commitment to a beyond-the-expected cast of artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars All my love 3 Jun 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The best thing you can say about any movie's soundtrack is that it can stand on its own, and that no matter what you think of the movie, the soundtrack is chock full of amazing music.

And the soundtrack to "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" is one of those. Whether you love or hate the teen-vampire-infatuation series, it's undeniable that the soundtrack has some excellent (if less indie than the last one) bands -- expansive rock'n'roll and lush echoing pop, some of it well-known (Muse, Vampire Weekend) and some relative obscure (Florence and the Machine).

"Tear me down, they can't/take you out of my thoughts/under every star/there's a battle I've lost..." It opens with Metric's "Eclipse (All Yours)," a beautifully layered pop melody filled with shimmering rough riffs; after that it segues into the painfully passionate "Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever)" by Muse -- a lament that explodes into a supernova of dark racing riffs and wailing vocals.

There's a pretty good rock'n'roll showing after that, with the Bravery's fast-moving angsty "Ours," the Black Keys' raw bluesy "Chop and Change," the Dead Weather's slow-burning bleak "Rolling on a Burning Tire," and the mildly funky folk of Cee Lo Green's "What Part of Forever." The best: UNKLE's collaboration with the Black Angels is a brilliantly eerie, murky rocker, while Vampire Weekend slips effortlessly into the expansive, glittering "Jonathan Low."

Then there's the pop songs, which are even more remarkable -- Florence and the Machine's exquisitely spooky "Heavy in my Arms," Fanfario's sprightly "Atlas," Sia's haunting strings-and-piano ballad "My Love," Band of Horses' starlight-filled "Life on Earth," and Howard Shore's bittersweet piano melody "Jacob's Theme.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best of the three soundtracks 27 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have enjoyed the previous two soundtracks but I think this one may be my favourite. It has a definitely rocky feel to it and the best mix so far of already established bands and little-known artists. I think they also got the balance right on the mix of tempos, plenty of upbeat songs with a faster pace, but also some softer more balladic songs, and some really darkly moody ones too. You can see how they will reflect the romace/action/dark drama of the film. Like all Twilight soundrack tracks, they have amazing lyrics, each song telling a distinct little story of its own and often it's easy to pick out which part of the film/book they got their inspiration from. I enjoy the fact that they all seem to have been very carefully selected to suit a moment in the plot, rather than just "Oh I like this song, let's stick it on the soundtrack."

So the tracks...
Standouts for me in order of preference:
** The Black Keys (Chop and Change)- great lyrics, heavy beat, guitars. A masterpiece and my favourite track.
** Florence and the Machine (Heavy in Your arms)- what else to say, it's Florence and the Machine, but she has surpassed herself. It's dark, dramatic and a little bit addictive. My second favourite on the album.
** The Bravery (Ours)- feels very current. Could probably be released today and do really well in the UK charts.
** Cee Lo Green (What part of Forever)- it starts and you think, really, what's this rubbish with the whistling, but then great lyrics, really catchy tune, can't stop listening to it.
** Metric (Eclipse All Yours)- deceptively gentle vocals, love it.
** Muse (Neutron Star Collision- love Muse but this one took me longer to appreciate than any of their other work.
