AllMusic Review by

Arriving a year after the final installment of Breaking Dawn, The Twilight Saga: Forever proves that there's still some (after)life in the vampire film franchise's music. The two-disc set gathers the most romantic songs from each of the five Twilight movies -- with the notable exception of Paramore's "Decode," which is arguably the most iconic song associated with the saga. Aside from that omission, the collection plays more or less like Twilight's greatest hits, with Metric's "Eclipse (All Yours)," Sia's "My Love," and Beck and Bat for Lashes' "Let's Get Lost" among the highlights. The inclusion of songs from artists ranging from Battles to Lykke Li to Lupe Fiasco to Green Day emphasizes the surprising diversity of Twilight's music, as does the inclusion of excerpts from Howard Shore, Alexandre Desplat, and Carter Burwell's scores. For fans who already have all the soundtracks, a poster of a vamped-up Bella with Edward and Jacob should sweeten the deal.
