The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part TwoSummit Ent/Atlantic ***
The Twlight Saga finally comes to an end with what seems to be the perfect match for sulky teens and record companies wishing to place their acts in high-profile vehicles. What’s interesting here is the marketing canniness involved – pretty much every act is a natural fit.
And so you have the reasonably well known (Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, Green Day) and no-risk non-household names (A Boy and His Kite, James Vincent McMorrow) sharing teeth-time with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. Add the likes of Twilight star Nikki Reed duetting with Paul McDonald (on the limpid All I’ve Ever Needed) and you’ve got a perfectly undemanding under-the-Christmas tree pressie for your sallow-faced niece/ nephew/offspring. breakingdawnthesoundtrack.com
