The Twi­light Saga: Break­ing Dawn – Part Two Sum­mit 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 non­house­hold 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 (right) 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. break­ing­dawn­the­sound­ TONY CLAY­TON-LEA Down­load tracks: Where I Come From , Cover Your Tracks , Ghosts
