The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 2 (Original Motion Picture Score)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Carter Burwell's score for the final installment of The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, Pt. 2, reflects the higher stakes for Bella, Edward, Jacob, and those near and dear to them.

Elsewhere, "Sparkles at Last" and "Chasing Snowflakes" add somber beauty, while "Renesmee's Lullaby/Something Terrible" is another fine showcase for Burwell's flair for haunting melodies. The score's opening and closing tracks, "Twilight Overture" and "Such a Prize," somehow manage to combine all these elements into pieces that provide fitting bookends to the close of The Twilight Saga.
