CD Review: Indie Artists Come Together For "Breaking Dawn"

Once again, the music and movie industry combine to create chaos in the entertainment world with the third installment in the “Twilight Saga.”This past November saw the release of “Breaking Dawn: Part 1,” capturing the hearts (and money) of all those vampire lovers. Also released in November was the soundtrack, which once again takes some of the biggest independent artists in the music industry to create a “one-of-a-kind” soundtrack.

The biggest name to appear on the “Breaking Down: Part 1" soundtrack is vocal sensation Bruno Mars with another pop driven love song, “It Will Rain.” Some of the songs have a gentle, almost fragile sound like the piano ballad “Sleeping At Last” by Turning Page and “Flightless Bird, American Mouth (Wedding Version)” by Iron & Wine, while others add a welcome, up-tempo feel, like The Belle Brigade’s “I Didn’t Mean It” and The Features’ “From Now On.” The album closes with the quietness of strings in Mia Masestro’s “Llovera”and the instrumental “Love Death Birth” from composer Carter Burwell. Burwell’s complete score will appear on a separate release.

The “Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn: Part 1” is available now on Chop Shop Records in association with Atlantic Records. For more information on this soundtrack, please visit
