    I love this beautiful, mysterious, and dark long cue from EOTS.
     
    Reminds me of the grim stillness of Rued Langgaard's Misterio "Dodssejleren".  Excuse poor recording, this was the only performance I could find.

    Let's hope this is an improvement over the previous, middle instalment score.

    Definitely! I just included "The Supremacy" instead of "Battle of Crait" b/c I was going for one example per film.
     
    The TLJ motif is interesting in that it is so Ludlow-like in that appearance (and the analagous rendition during the opening Escape Battle). But intervallically, it's also related to the fairly anonymous sounding "Tension" motif first intro'd in TFA. And over the course of TLJ, it develops into the full-fledged "Holdo's Sacrifice" theme. Williams gets an amazing amount of mileage out of this little C-Eb-D-F-C melodic pattern.

    Is it the same origin, that very aggressive and cool brass passage from TLJ, in Battle of Crait?

    Who’s the producer of this album? It seems to lack of... direction.
     
    I don’t like this version of Yoda’s theme.

    I am disappointed they didn't select Lincoln. Freedom's Call has one of Williams' best violin solos.

    Hansu higher than Bruckner😜😜😜
     
    I learned this season that Hansu's two note "theme" which is almost in his every score, is from Schubert's(nr. 8 in this list) symphony nr. 8😎😎😎

    hornist reacted to mrbellamy in Do you consider the score to War Horse a masterpiece?   
    "The Homecoming" is a masterpiece, I have no qualms about that. Essential John Williams AFAIC. 
     
    The score as a whole, I dunno...as others have said maybe not by every imaginable standard? But I think it's magical and it was exactly what I wanted in 2011 after three years of waiting for a new Williams release. Along with Tintin it was an ideal fix and the first scores I anticipated on this forum so I always think about it like that. I think it's proved definitive of this decade in JW, its resolute yearning and leaner action style felt refreshing at the time and still lingers. It also has my favorite John Williams melody ("Remembering Emilie") and action cue ("No Man's Land") of the 2010s and there have been some good ones. 7.5 years later it remains a notable score in my mind, so I vote yes.
