2. Friends, Band of Skulls--> 4 1/2 Starts: Its clear that Jacob and Bellas friendship is put accross in this song. The beat of the song is interesting which is why I like this song.
3. Hearing Damage, Thom Yorke --> 3 Stars: I am sorry I did not like this song. It got annoying. 1 of only 2 I didnt like on the soundtrack which isnt bad!
4. Possibility, Lykke Li-->5++ Stars: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this song! It total talks about how depressed Bella is when Edward breaks her heart. Its beautiful and her voice is the song just makes it even more beautiful but sad.
5. A White Demon Love Song, The Killers--> 4 Stars: Its interesting I must say even though I never liked the Killers but the saddness of the song fits the film. The beat and the lyrics are just so interesting.
6. Satellite Heart, Anya Marina-->4 1/2 Stars: This is another interesting sounding song. The background music and her voice in the song just makes you want to listen to it again and again.Read more ›
And the soundtrack to "New Moon" is one of those -- apparently the people behind it have gone completely indie in their tastes. Whether you love or hate the teen-vampire-infatuation flick, it's undeniable that the soundtrack is bursting with brilliant bands -- angular rock'n'roll and lush echoing pop, some of it well-known (Muse, Thom Yorke) and some relative obscure (Grizzly Bear, Lykke Li).
"Meet me on the equinox/Meet me halfway/The sun is perched at its highest peak/In the middle of the day... " Ben Gibbard sings distantly as the gentle guitars swirl around him. A storm of drums builds up every time he laments that "everything, everything ends," as his pronouncements about an unknown lover become eerier and more surreal ("A window/An open tomb/The sun crawls across your bedroom/A halo/A waning moon/Your last breath moving through you").
There's a pretty good showing of solid rock'n'roll following Death Cab For Cutie's memorable introduction -- Band of Skulls provides the buzzing, blunt-edged rocker "Friends," Hurricane Bells erupts in a buzzing storm of fuzzy bass and sharp beats with "Monsters," and Sea Wolf's "The Violet Hour" is a swirling little pop-rocker that seems to trickle down the reverberating guitar.
Then there's Thom Yorke, whose buzzy-edged electronic "Hearing Damage" is a furtive, dark little rush of sinister beauty. And of course, Muse is included in the stomping, mournful rocker "I Belong To You (New Moon Remix)."
Some of these bands are also going unexpectedly low-key to suit the mood, even if they're usually much louder.Read more ›

I love the twilight series. The first twilight soundtrack was awesome but the New Moon soundtrack has a very strange mood which to me does not exude the new moon mood. Read morePublished on Nov. 1 2009 by R. dayjon
