At this point, even the most entrenched haters of Twilight's vampire-sparkle voodoo concede the soundtracks' indie-rock bona fides —
though they might wish the music came shrouded in a plain brown wrapper.

Like last October's New Moon collection, Eclipse operates as a sort of alt-party primer: original songs from the genre's current
varsity squad, with a smattering of JV newbies. Pomp-rockers Muse,
practically the movies' musical mascots by now, provide the requisite
dose of Queen-meets-Rush grandiosity on ''Neutron Star Collision (Love
Is Forever),'' while Jack White side project the Dead Weather revel in
swampy blooze-ooze on ''Rolling in on a Burning Tire.'' Vampire Weekend,
stripped of their habitual Afro-pop swaddling, work the
harpsichord-tinged twee of ''Jonathan Low'' into a pleasingly woolly
tangle, though Australian chanteuse Sia's ''My Love'' does more with
much less — her fragile ballad is so ethereal and otherworldly, it
should be sung in Elvish. U.K. indie-pop outfit Fanfarlo's rickety
''Atlas'' sounds like Talking Heads on a dirt-road detour; Beck and
British songstress Bat for Lashes trade haunting echo-chamber 
vocals on
the percussion-heavy duet ''Let's Get Lost''; and on the heady ''Heavy
in Your Arms,'' Florence + the Machine make like Siouxsie Sioux leading a
tribal marching band into battle. L.A. unknowns Eastern Conference
Champions co-opt Radiohead's dense existential dread, Band of Horses
conjure up another beardy folk ramble, and this summer's palest citizens
get a pretty solid ready-made mixtape. B+

I'm so excited for Sia and Muse. Those two i'm really looking forward to. Neutron Star Collision is AMAZING. INCREDIBLE. The music for Twilight is always really weird when you first get the soundtrack before the movie, but then you see the movie and you're like WOW!!! I LOVE THISE MUSIC!!! lol. I'm looking forward to liking this soundtrack.

Oh, and EW are small-minded morons. B +! who the hell cares about what they have to say. They don't know something unique when they see it because they're all stuck up in celebrity problems and causing rumors like mad. Everything in the Twilight Universe deserves an A!!!!
