I thought the Death Cab song was good but now that they have a music video with new scenes, I love it! Great editing!

The Band of Skulls track is very "them". It sounds like it could be from their album. I have no idea where it's going to show up in the movie though.

Thom Yorke's track is techno-y and energy enthused.

Lykke Li's haunting voice is dreamlike.

The Killers sound like they're channeling Johnny Cash.

Anya's song is cute and melodic. Her accent is a bit.... =/

I love MUSE. I want to hear the part where they sing in French. It's a strong song.

Bon Iver and St. Vincent have such distinct and unique voices on their own and this duet is simply sublime. It's filled with love and sorrow.

I really really like Done All Wrong. I love the 'heart beat' percussion.

Monsters is very alternative and rocky-er from his usual stuff.

Sea Wolf is channeling 80s David Bowie but in a good way with maybe a hint or Morrissey?

Ok Go's track is different. You can't ignore that base drum.

Slow Life is beautiful. I'm going to see them in concert with Beach House and they're playing this song! So excited.

Editors have been listening to too much Meatloaf me thinks. =D

Alexandre Desplat's "The Meadow" track will be one of the first songs to be put on repeat in my car and at work. It's perfection. All I think of when I hear it are Edward's eyes looking at me with the deepest love in them.
