The New Moon Soundtrack is here and let me tell you…It’s awesome! I just got my copy last night and listened to the entire cd. The mood created by this music absolutely evokes the feel of the book. I would love this cd even if it had no ties to the upcoming New Moon movie. It’s just good music, plain and simple.
But don’t take my word for it…check out these other reviews.
Entertainment Weekly – Grade A – “On a good day, film soundtracks enhance the moviegoing experience. At their best, they transcend it. The latest sonic accompaniment to Twilight‘s inescapable teen-vampire juggernaut — a swooning conveyance of girl-meets-undead-boy romance, delivered by some of the best established and emerging names in the indie stratosphere — may sway even the most committed Twi-loathers.” (See full review)
iGN Music – 9.0 of 10 “…a solid collection of pleasing indie-tinged music that’s remarkably artistic considering its commercial origins. And while we’ve no doubt that it’ll provide a killer sonic backdrop for the upcoming film, this is a soundtrack that’s strong enough to stand firmly on its own.” (See full review)
Chicago Sun Times – 3 stars “It’s a testament to both Patsavas’ reputation as a tastemaker and the massive popularity of all things “Twilight” that the soundtrack — which was bumped up four days from its original Tuesday outing to be released last Friday to stay ahead of online leaks — includes some real coups, with artists who rarely contribute to this sort of project, including a fabulously creepy solo track from Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.” (See full review)
