New Moon Soundtrack  
Okay, I'm riding the fence again once more with this fandom.

The Good: ASKDFJ! Holy crap more than half the songs on this thing are by artists that have been used by fans (including myself) for mixes and vids. I'm sure there's less of a sting with this soundtrack cos it's The Jacob Movie. Also, these are bands/artist that I LOVE. Bon Iver AND St. Vincent?!?!? Why, it's almost as awesome as La Roux Vs. The Knife. Grizzly Bear??? Anya Marina???!?! Editors???!!! Lykke Li??!?!? Somebody kill me from the awesome.

The Bad: I hope all the tweeny-bopper fans of this wankdom UNDERSTAND the GREATNESS of these artists and appreciate them for their own artistic merit and not because OMFG!TWILIGHT!IS!LYYYYYYYYYYYYFE!!!!! You know what I mean??? Otherwise, it's a waste of good talent on the unappreciative meaning the band/artist sold out. All artistry has been flushed down the toilet. Ugh. Fandom. You wank bastard. *kicks it in the shins*

LOL. It happens. That's kind of the reason they DO soundtracks, to get noticed. Once again, that double edged sword of fandom. *sigh*

*puts dentures in* Same here sister. I can't stand to listen to the radio with their playlist of the same five songs over eight stations. Lame. If I MUST listen to radiob I tune in to college radio. I do have to keep up on the music tho cos MUSIC IS MY LIFE it's kinda my job. *shrug* *lobs water balloons at kids*

My exact feelings. I'm afraid to consider it a possibly good soundtrack because the sheer fact it is a TWILIGHT soundtrack, meaning any credibility it had gets shoved to the wayside, like RPats' career after he finished with this franchise, for example.

The good news is when I went back to Sortofbeautiful a few weeks ago for a peek, there was fanfic there. Some real fans are still there, still saneish

like RPats' career

LOL. Exactly. He had some cred when he was just Cedric Diggory. The songs are m'kay... like I said, it's prolly cos it's The Jacob Movie that I'm not all up in arms. *shrug*

Oh, really??? *is tempted to check it out*

I SO agree, when I first saw the list and read Bon Iver & St. Vincent I've had the biggest WOW, WTF!!!!? moment in months. This soundtrack is so good, I hope they can appreciate it. What also bothers me is that many people will bash this album for being a Twilight OST and won't even take a minute to actually hear the music. I still can't decide if it's good or bad that NM has soundtrack like this but in the meantime I'm enjoying it SFM! :D

Wow, wtf?!?! indeed. Same reaction here. I'm kinda scared for them cos they WILL inevitably get some backlash for participating in the wankdom. But, but, the music. It's SO. GOOD. *sigh* I'm so torn. *wibble*

I really love the Death Cab song, that's the only one on the soundtrack that I've heard so far. And I don't recognize the names you've mentioned- though I've been reading good reviews of Lykke Li's music in general.

I just feel conflicted because I love Paramore's 'Decode' and 'I caught myself', songs I only heard because of the first movie, so on the one hand it's like 'RARRR, TWILIGHT HATE' and on the other...it's inspiring cool music. So. Hmm.

Ah, you understand the dilemma. *sigh* I hate my fandom. *stabs it in the face* Dude, check out Bon Iver. I have if you want. ...in fact if you want anyone else to listen to on that soundtrack, let me know, cos these songs are not their best showings.

It's their sellout song. Overwhelmingly formulaic, dull and tedious in comparison to their normal fair. *sigh* Oh, DCFC me no likey no more... Actually, it's this cyclical thing I have for them... First, LOVE! Then made popular by The OC, HATE! Afterwards not so popular, LOVE! Then made popular again by NM, HATE! I'll love them again in about five years.

There is no denying his beautifulness (iconage for your viewing pleasure) but give me Eddie Spears as Jake any day and I'd TOTALLY jump that.
