Album Review: Divergent Soundtrack Deluxe Edition

Divergen SoundtrackHey everyone! To keep up with this whole book and movie theme, I decided that today I would talk about the movie Divergent:Original Motion Picture Soundtrack-Deluxe Edition. I wrote about the movie review back on Monday's post. Now here I am with the movie's soundtrack.

I first listened to the soundtrack on Spotify which is actually the regular edition with only 9 songs. I instantly ran through all 9-tracks and had it on repeat all day at work! It's a mix of pop, elctro-pop, hip hop, R&B, and everything in-between.

I'm a big Ellie Goulding fan, so when I saw she was one of the artist on the album I decided that I just had to buy the album. Later I found out that she actually wrote 3 songs for the movie. If you have or haven't seen the movie yet, they actually play the songs in the movie. I thought they would only play at the end like in the credits, the way Hunger Games and Catching Fire did in their movies. I was pleasantly surprised that they incorporated the music from the soundtrack into some of the movie's scenes.

If any of you have watched all the other big franchise book-to-movies you might have noticed a lot of their soundtracks has featured indie and alternative-folk music. The Divergent soundtrack is actually very pop and EDM inspired. I assume this was the main focus since the movie does happen to revolve around a Dystopian Chicago. It's very futuristic and post-war, as well as entering a new war.

Now I'm going to give you guys my favorite songs off of the soundtrack! Go listen to them, go buy them on iTunes or buy the CD, yes those still exist!
