I am a music Fanatic and have always loved music!!

This is one of my fav. books of all time (right up there with Harry Potter, Eregon, and others) I knew the moment I heard that they were making a movie adutation of the books I just knew that the movie would not compair to the books. What the movie turned out was a horrifid desater, but once I saw it couple more times it stared to grow on me. One thing that caught my attention the first time I saw it was the score! It was nothing I EVER thought it could have been... The score was very bland and untransitional from what was on the screen and what was happening in the music. I think this young new composer (Burwell) tried to do a more teen sound with placing more "hipp" instermataion into the score that in MY opion could have done without! The score is fine but it was a very big let down. Bella's Lullaby was not what I wanted it to be from the get-go... I think the movie producers should have gotten a older more experanced composer such as John Willaims, Patrick Doyle, and even Danny Elfman. These very talated musicans could have brought more life and fullness and musical transtion to the already fixer-up movie. The movie was not that great and Burwell could have blamed it, but his music could have put that "whip cream" on top and made the movie fantastic!! No one will ever know if the movie soundtrack will ever recover from its fallen state. We have the next three books to fid out (New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn.)

My opion on the soundtrack is not worth the buy but if you seem to like the movie have at it!

Only one persons opion not everyone fills this way...

Take Care,
