  1. Update for those I was talking to last night...Amazon removed the album from my Prime Music Cloud Library AND even from the Downloaded Library on my iPad Amazon Music App. Nice try for them, but obviously it's in my Dropbox AND on an actual, physical CD now.
  2. I will start on it and try to do as much as I can tonight. Thanks for listening to my excited, but jumbled ideas. 1. Main Title and Attack on the Jakku Village- Obviously the first 1:30 is the classic opening sequence. It never fails to excite! It moves into a march-like segment with some classic brass flares. Much of the middle section is classic JW underscoring before picking back up at about 3:10. There is a nice, sinister theme at about 5:40 that kind of comes out of nowhere, and then a beautiful full-orchestral swell at about 6:05. Nothing overly great about this track- very introductory.
  3. There is NO Cantina song in the 23 tracks on my album. I went back through and am checking and can't find anything like what the Cantina song might be like. AND, I'm a huge Lin-Manuel Miranda fan, so I know I'd be able to spot it if it existed. Can you clarify what you mean by "Cellar Song"?
  4. Be ready for a storm of PMs. Bring 'em on! There's nothing I love more than discussing JW.
  5. I've only listened once, and I usually reserve my judgment for the 3rd listen-through. Overall, I felt more engaged in the 2nd half of the album. I feel confident that this isn't JW's greatest score by any stretch of the imagination, but it has many brilliant moments. How could it not? I keep trying to picture J.J. Abrams-esque moments with this JW score. It's certainly fun to hear fresh imaginings of old themes. From the inaugural first listen, the tracks that I enjoyed the most are: 2 The Scavenger- This track has a nice, but short, flute solo, and some really wonderful low woodwind stuff.
  6. Wow. Well I downloaded it to my device immediately when it showed up on my Amazon Prime Music app, and am almost through the whole album. Wish I could share!
  7. I seem to be the only person who is listening, and am wondering why it was released in this way. Could this be a fluke on Amazon's part? Why else would they release it without track names? Here is a screen shot.
  8. I pre-ordered the album from Amazon and it was released tonight. I'm currently on track 17 (Snoke). For some reason, Amazon released it without track names but I've almost completed a full listen-through and it's legit. It's still not out on iTunes yet. There's a few great throwbacks so far and I'm even more anxious to see the film now that I've got some connection to the score! First new JW since 2013, so I'm beside myself!
  9. Well, I must say I'm just very disappointed. As someone who is not only a Harry Potter fanatic, but also a John Williams fanatic, this final movie was going be epic for me. I know that it will still be fine, but even if you look at the flaws of the first 3 films, the music still makes them fantastic. I wanted the ending of the series to feel more or less "full-circle" and had a lot of hope after JW's comments about his interest in the final HP film. Oh well.
  10. Overall, I'm optimistic about this soundtrack although I have some legitimate worries. This soundtrack will not tie in to or sound like any of the previous 6, although I wish it could have. HOPEFULLY, if JW does the final installment, we'll have a great sense of nostalgia and wholeness as the series comes to an end. Below are my initial thoughts on the samples that came out today. Keep in mind that I have only heard 30 seconds of each track, so my impressions may not be permanent. This just makes me even MORE excited for the movie to come out! 1. Obliviate- Classic traveling music: a repea
