I feel they may have gone for too much indie cred on this one. Terrible movies, but the first sold 2 million copies of its soundtrack. Girls I know who are obsessed with Twilight haven't picked this up, because as tragic as it is, most young girls don't know Thom Yorke, or Bon Iver, or Grizzly Bear. At least in the tween market, which Twilight is definitely in. On the plus side, those who do buy it may learn something about music. Bad luck to those who already bought their Taylor Swift tickets...

I listened to this the other day and thought it was better than most soundtracks but it still lacked something. Great job Adam.

Sadly, I think the success of the album will turn on whether DCFC's single can get as much pull as Decode did. Which is highly doubtful. What's that song up to on Paramore's MySpace -- 70 million plays?

I listened to this specifically for Grizzly Bear and I was pretty let down, it's the only song from them I've disliked.

Admittedly, the Twilight soundtrack/movie music selections were good. I'll have to check this out. Initially, I was excited to see DCFC, but none of the other artists entice me to check this out. Good review, sir.

This kind of makes me sad that all these great musicians jumped on to the vampire love bandwagon Is noone safe from Hollywoods corruption anymore??

I found it easy as hell. I'm just listening to some good tunes.
So what if it has that stupid Twilight title.
The Hope Floats soundtrack is awesome, and that was one cornball movie.
This is some gooooood stuff. Looooove it.

detaching from the movie was very hard, but my main problem with it is that the songs don't touch the back catalog of these great artists. Again, I'm looking at this from a casual listener, not one of us, who are discovering these bands for the first time. I'd rather give them some other cuts, that's all.

I'm actually enjoying this soundtrack. It is very melancholy, but has some bright spots as well. And they are right, you have to divorce the crappy movie from your mind.

I'm sorry, but vampires should not be disco balls in the sun. The good Lord intended them to burn. Where were all these Vampire trend whores when Buffy was one of the best shows on TV?
