According to Soundtracks Examiner, the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 by Carter Burwell is number 1 in the Top Ten Best Film Scores/Soundtracks of 2011.

1. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1, composed by Carter Burwell (Atlantic)

Go ahead, call me a sellout. But I don’t think Carter Burwell has ever been given his due for his enormous contributions to film music. And the man continues to plow forward as one of the most creative minds in compositional minimalism as well as full-bodied orchestration. While he was probably disqualified for nomination at this year’s Academy Awards for Breaking Dawn – Part 1 because it was anchored heavily to the original Twilight score, his work was no less remarkable. I would go so far as to say that it was actually better than the original, given that, although he laid the original template for the Twilight sound, he was coming back into the fold on the heels of critical heavyweights Alexandre Desplat (with whom the Academy also bears an unspoken beef) and Howard Shore. Burwell fearlessly picked up the baton and ran with it, giving us a romantic score easily on par with Nino Rota’s Romeo & Juliet (which was also unceremoniously snubbed by the Academy in 1969).

I have all the Twilight Soundtracks and the Score is Fantastic!! It gives me goosbumps!! I think everybody who works on Twilight should receive a Award Crew and Cast because the Films are AMAZING!! If it was up to the public They would ll win Gloden Globes, Oscars and Baftas. I wish Robsten a long, healthy and happy life and successful career. I will love you Robsten forever and always!! Xxxxxxxx
