Based on four reviews, Metacritic assigned the Breaking Dawn – Part 2 soundtrack an average score of 74, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[14] Heather Phares, reviewing for Allmusic, said "It's fitting that the film's soundtrack is dominated by ballads that feel like a long goodbye to Bella, Edward, and Jacob", and said "As with the other volumes of the series' music, however, this collection provides a surprisingly good showcase for female, indie-ish talent." Phares concluded, "While Breaking Dawn isn't one of the more dynamic Twilight Saga soundtracks, it is one of the more emotive ones, and just may help fans get some closure as one of the biggest film franchises of the 2000s and 2010s comes to a close."[8]
