This new song, from the people who created the explosive hit "Radioactive", is a snug fit for the movie, and has no trouble blaring its intent to the world and all its Districts. It's a good song for the movie, and it's a good enough song by itself. The first few seconds will suffice to attract the attention it seeks, but is it capable of retaining it?
After Bittersweet, the hot mess of a track that was a part of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 Original Soundtrack, Goulding hits it off in another “epic” saga OST with Mirror. While I’m yet to watch Catching Fire, the film adaptation of the second part of the The Hunger Games series… this track, a part of the OST released on November 19th, 2013, feels like it carries a tiny part of the film’s soul. From the ethereal background melody in the beginning to Goulding’s vocals that feel like a splash of cold water until the fiery, resolute chorus steals the show, Mirror gave me the chills.
This new track by Coldplay, written for the soundtrack of The Hunger Games – Catching Fire, certainly stirs a fire in our hearts. A throwback to the old, much loved Coldplay style, this track immediately captivates and imparts a sense of peace, of warm hearths and sunsets.
