‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ OST – Summit Ent./Atlantic Records
For the past few years, Entertainment Weekly has been one of the (if not the) first to review the Twilight series’ soundtracks.
For Twilight, EW gave the soundtrack an “A-,” saying the “soundtrack provides plenty of fist-pumping moments but far more that are just plain swoony.”
For The Twilight Saga: New Moon, EW gave the album an “A,” saying it was “a sort of survey course in new-now-next rock: a mixtape with teeth.”
Now, EW has reviewed the soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, giving it a “B+” and saying it “operates as a sort of alt-party primer: original songs from the genre’s current varsity squad, with a smattering of JV newbies.”
About Muse and The Dead Weather, EW states, “[Muse] provide[s] the requisite dose of Queen-meets-Rush grandiosity on ‘Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever),’ while Jack White side project the Dead Weather revel in swampy blooze-ooze.” They go on to detail the sound involved in several of the newer bands to the Saga, including Sia, Band of Horses, Vampire Weekend, and Fanfarlo.
Overall, EW proclaims: “At this point, even the most entrenched haters of Twilight‘s vampire-sparkle voodoo concede the soundtracks’ indie-rock bona fides.”
