So far, I've loved all the scores on this CD! It's soothing, relaxing, or it gets my heart beating and my senses going, and I can probably name which scene a particular score comes from! LOL Carter Burwell has gone above and beyond on this masterpiece, and I truly look forward to listening to more of his memorably brilliant works!

Must have for any Twilight fan!

"I'm thrilled that the filmmakers decided to release the "Twilight" movie score, composed by Carter Burwell. After devouring the "Twilight" soundtrack and listening to it non-stop for a few weeks now, I was pleased to have my hands on the score and actually relive the background music from the movie.

This score does not disappoint. If you're a fan of the film, then the score is a wonderful way of taking the movie with you, so to speak. From the opening scenes ("How I Would Die") to the breathtaking conclusion ("Edward at her Bed"), this score covers the various moods, emotions, suspense and romance of the film. To truly get the full musical experience of the film, you really would want to get this and the original soundtrack because these two go hand-in-hand. If you're a fan of the books, then this would be the perfect CD to listen to as you snuggle up to read (or re-read) the books and dive into Bella and Edward's world. And if you're a soundtrack fan, then this CD - under the very capable hands of Carter Burwell - should be a worthy addition to your classical score collection.

This score does a superb job of covering the 'light' and 'dark' facets of the film. Darkness is represented by tracks like "Treaty," "Humans are Predators Too" and "Showdown in the Ballet Studio." Lightness is represented in "I Dreamt of Edward," "The Lion Fell in Love with the Lamb" and "Dinner with his Family." My favorites would have to be the soaring and beautiful "Bella's Lullaby" and the unapologetically romantic "The Lion Fell in Love with the Lamb" (which also happen to be some of my favorite parts in the movie - the meadow scene and the tree-climbing/piano scenes).

I bought this CD because I am a big fan of the books and the movie. I hadn't heard of Carter Burwell until his work in "Twilight" and I will definitely be keeping my eye on him from now on. The "Twilight" score is superb and I highly recommend it to fans of the film and books, as well as those who enjoy soundtracks and classical music. A keeper.

Exactly Edward and Bella

"Mainly, the word "passion" comes to mind when listening to this cd. It's so magificent and beautiful. Of course, this music follows the movie, but works while reading the book as well just as easily.This music is compelling, heart-wrenching, and endearing to the listeners. It tugs at anyone's heart-strings and lifts you up only to knock you down and again make the full circle of lifting you up.

You can practically hear Bella and Edward falling into love during the course of the music. The album best represents their desires, their fears, the terror(s) they face, and the unexplicable love they share for one another. This score was made with love and I recommend this to any "Twilight" fan. After listening to this album, it would be hard not to bask in the optimism that love promises-especially in Edward and Bella's case."
