  • What happened John??

    I have been getting all of the John Williams Star Wars soundtracks since I was a kid with the Star Wars LP. I grew up on the OT soundtrack albums and was happy when the supplemental material was later published to fill out what was missing due to space constraints in those days. This album, in several instances, does not even contain the actual music that plays in the movie that it references. For example the "prologue" portion after the opening SW theme. The most obvious is "Journey to Exegol" when in glimpses sounds like it, but this was imo a standout piece of chase-like music with strings in the movie as Kylo Ren and similarly later when Rey goes to Exegol. Not the same music. Each Star Wars soundtrack has several pieces of unique music that are added with the new movie. Not really so with this one, although there are some nice variations to Rey's theme. In this album are a lot of regurgitaed old Emperor themes from ROTJ and the "finale" sounds like a compilation musical piece that touches on all major themes from OT and ST. I've never been disappointed in any of John Williams' SW soundtracks until this one; on the most part they are iconic, the guy is a composing legend. Just don't know what happened putting together this one and why some of the music is different than in the movie.
  • Wonderful score to a terrible trilogy

    Williams can always be counted on to deliver inspiring and affecting work and once again he comes through. The tragedy is his work on this trilogy is far better than the movies themselves deserve. It is with great irony that such unimaginative and poorly thought out mega budgeted cash cows are blessed with such wonderfully conceived and executed scores.
  • Better than I thought

    The sound mixing/editing in the movie is so bad and loud that you lose out on hearing most of this score, the title track in particular, which I adore. A real shame, as Williams work has always elevated Star Wars, whether it’s a good moment or a bad moment. But at least we have the album to listen to and imagine what could have been.
  • GREAT!

    The usual awesome John Williams!
  • Like the film itself, it's ok at best.

    Wlliams is a legend, obviously. No one disputes this. And there are some very good tracks here. But most of it's pretty average. And one track (The Speeder Chase) is actually bad. Nothing here rises to the level of The Spark from The Last Jedi soundtrack. This one's for SW and John Williams completists only.
  • Thank you!

    I am a huge Star Wars fan, and I want to say my appreciation for Williams’ latest masterpiece, but I can’t find the words. All I can say is “Thank you. You have given me an amazing childhood. Thank you so much.”

    A few of the most popular old tunes are weaved in to some of the new tracks, but they’re still great. As for the purely new tracks, many are quite good, in particular The Rise of Skywalker and Anthem of Evil. And, the movie was really good and the trilogy on a whole was pretty solid despite what all the haters say.
  • Perfect

    If this is his last soundtrack to compose, what a way to go. Easy 5 stars!
