The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
by Various Artists
Released: Nov 2012
Label: Chop Shop/Atlantic
Alas, the vampire-love yarn ends here, and like the The Twilight Saga's past soundtracks, Breaking Dawn, Pt. 2 does a great job of bringing out the best (and most pensive) sides from a mix of alt vets (Green Day does a fitting end-of-a-journey ballad, Feist a ghostly elegy), au courant indie darlings (Passion Pit offers a soaring opener, St. Vincent a PJ Harvey-esque rocker), and artists you're now glad you know about (The Boom Circuits, POP ETC, Iko, A Boy and His Kite, James Vincent McMorrow). Twi-Hards: Listen up for actress Nikki Reed duetting with hubby Paul McDonald.
