Even with Passion Pit's “Where I Come From,” Ellie Goulding's “Bittersweet” and The Boom Circuit's “Everything and Nothing” providing more of a dance beat, the series' last soundtrack nearly gets caught in an angsty rut. “Twilight” newcomers Green Day are perhaps the worst offenders with their boring ode “The Forgotten.”

In keeping with another “Twilight” album custom, the soundtrack closes with the composer Carter Burwell's evocative piano lullaby “Plus Que Ma Propre Vie.”
