The OST has also been reviewed by Entertainment Weekly just recently. The OST scored a B+! Satisfied with the rating? Too early to judge as I still don’t have the copy in my hands. Grrr!

What are you expecting from Howard Shore? Theme song for newborns, etc? We’re still lacking the tracklist for the score, so stay tuned!
NME (a UK based Music Magazine) has a great article about the Eclipse Original Movie Soundtrack : ‘Twilight’ Soundtrack compilers reveal how they pick bands.
Music supervisors Paul Katz and Alexandra Patsavas have claimed that choosing songs from big artists, plus smaller acts such as Fanfarlo and Bombay Bicycle Club, doesn’t stem from an attempt to cash in on bands’ cool factors.
“We have forward-thinking directors and they have a progressive music taste,” Patsavas said. “It’s completely natural.”
Patsavas said an important factor was the tone of each scene. “This is the battle movie,” she said of Eclipse. “So there should be some conflict in the music, so we have a band like The Dead Weather there.”
We are reaching the release date for Eclipse day by day. As of now, there’s still no news yet for the OST. Well, not to worry as they’ll probably update us soon about it
This morning, NME is reporting that Florence and the Machine songstress Florence Welch stated that she was interested in being a part of the soundtrack for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse but that nothing was yet “confirmed” for the endeavor.
The interview was only briefly previewed byNME as it is a promotion for an upcoming issue that Florence Welch covers, but it seems to suggest that negotiations for her involvement with the soundtrack are underway.
Of course, there’s no telling what the exact circumstances of the arrangement are, but NME is a reliable source.

In other New Moon Music news…
Pitchfork: You’re on the New Moon soundtrack withIver, doing a song called “Rosyln”. How did that happen?
Annie Clark: Justin [Vernon] and I met at, and it turns out we were both fans of each other. Afterward, we got to talking about doing some kind of collaboration. He had this song that he’d been kicking around, and he sent it to me. It was beautiful, as you can imagine. I ended up working on it with him, and then it turned out that the Twilight people were interested in the song being on their soundtrack.
Pitchfork: How do you feel knowing that this is going to be in this gigantic teenage vampire movie?
AC: Well, to be entirely honest, I hadn’t thought about the impact of that. My main thought was that I really wanted to do something with Justin because he’s so great. Then, once it was announced, I started getting floods of calls and emails from family and extended family, who were thrilled. Apparently, every woman in my family, unlike me, has read the entire series, so they’re really just beside themselves about it. I have a sister who’s nine who called me screaming, and I have a sister who’s 39, and she called me screaming. Only then did I realize the impact of it.
