    John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    Yeah, it looks like one or two of the videos have been taken down. It doesn't even cover every cue. I'm still waiting to hear Break In again.

    Paging Williams for the appropriate and neccesary concert suite: Jey's Theme.

    Looks like a different user has uploaded Blu-ray rips from Solo to YouTube, so they're out there once again. It appears that said user even edited together tracks. Hm. I was confused when I saw this at first, thinking they released an FYC or something suddenly.

    John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)

    Oh yeah! Listened to Solo for the first time in a while yesterday. Captures so many highlights and is easily my favourite score of 2018. Probably the best JW follow-up ever. It really is a feel-good album- it's just bursting with moments that make you cheer, smile, and love the Powell-Williams collaboration. On that note, you'd have thought that, and it would probably been the case with any other composer but Powell, with Williams writing a theme (a two part theme and a fully developed concert piece, nonetheless), that the rest of the score would shy away from developing too many other good themes or motifs, and mostly revert to Williams material because it's been handed to them to use. What I love is that Powell uses The Adventures of Han so well, and yet still has room to develop five or so killer themes, including the Enfys Nest theme (wow), the gang theme (a personal pleasure for me), the love theme (perfect), the Crimson Dawn motif (alright), L3's theme,and of course Chewie's theme, which is remarkably versatile. Cues such as Train Heist (great balance there), Mine Mission, Break Out, Reminiscence Therapy (I adore the blend of old and new music here) and Maruaders Arrive are some of the best action set pieces of the year. It's a really, really good score. A few really good moments in the film we still don't have, and that pity of an FYC blunder is still looming in my mind. Chicken in the Pot could've easily been left off the album in place of, say, Break In, Mimban Battle, the film versions of Train Heist and Marauders Arrive, Hyperspace, or the Maelstrom. Anyways, that's a very small negative takeaway, and it's not at all on the part of the composers, but rather Disney and co. Perhaps a sessions leak one day (unlikely I'd say, considering we still don't have a Rogue One leak from the permeable grip of Michael Giacchino) or an expansion, but the OST album, while action-heavy, is extremely enjoyable.
