Listener’s Annotation: Soundtrack for the film The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Soundtrack includes music heard throughout the movie as well as additional music.
Summary: Music includes several songs specifically written for this film: “Meet me on the Equinox,” “I Belong to You (New Moon Remix)” and “White Demon Love Song.” Additional songs are atmospheric and quirky. Album is not mainstream and will appeal to those looking to match the feel of the movie.
Evaluation: A great soundtrack. Finally someone has realized that listeners want exactly the same music on a CD that they heard during the film. The songs chosen for this soundtrack mimic the feel of the movie creating atmosphere, drama and (usually) some type of angst. Songs written specifically for the film are excellent and it’s nice to have a song included by Muse (Meyer’s musical inspiration for the series).
Additional Info: Soundtrack for film: The Twilight Saga: New Moon
Selection: I bought this CD because I am a fan of the books, and the film.
