Best movie Soundtrack of 2010, Eclipse on Next Movie
“Everybody likes to make fun of “Twilight” – adults, children, house pets – but the producers of the films threw a monkey wrench in the gears of the irony machine by stuffing the soundtrack to their latest effort full of awesome songs from ultra-cool indie bands. “Eclipse” is a who’s who of moody indie rock, featuring a lineup that would make Pitchfork’s brains explode: Beck, Bat For Lashes, Metric, Vampire Weekend, Muse, the Black Keys…the list goes on and on. Perhaps this all shouldn’t be surprising given that music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas made a name for herself turning television’s “The O.C.” into an avenue for indie rock exposure, but it’s still a very pleasant surprise to see the music from a “Twilight” film become the “Singles” soundtrack of the aughts.”

While the film didn’t have the enormous hype of Harry Potter, it was a favorite amongst internet users who search for trailers using google. This was despite the fact it received mixed reviews and was not as highly regarded as the previous outing of the franchise.”
