    The Training Course missing from the OST is an absolute tragedy. The whole cue is wonderful.

    Frenzied, no kidding. It turns out I was misremembering the scene in that last post of mine—Rey wasn’t quite lifeless yet. But everything else I said stands. It was a moment that truly stood out in a film that was throwing everything it could get its hands on at you.
     
    I know this because I ended up seeing it again tonight. This time I succeeded in catching the cameo to end all cameos as far as I’ll ever be concerned, and that alone was worth it. My opinion of the film definitely improved after this second viewing. Yes, it has major story flaws, but if you’re willing to not let that totally blind you, you’ll realize that J.J. is actually a really gifted filmmaker. He knows where to put the camera and move it. You can follow his action (unlike, ahem, one M. Bay). The Kylo/Rey duel on the Death Star wreck was truly well done, start to finish—you really felt they were at it for real, that someone was going to lose a limb or worse. Not that J.J. is entirely faultless for the story, but imagine if any other filmmaker walked into a room and was told out of the blue that he had to make a single movie that hit all the goals for a series capper AND solved all the (supposed) problems of the preceding entry AND had to preserve the financial viability of a major entertainment IP and had to do it at breakneck pace... and he came back to you with this movie, you’d have to give him credit for his achievement.

    Since every cue we can hear on the OST is longer than its version in the film, we can assume all or at least most of the completely unreleased cues are actually shorter edits of the full versions of those as well, so there's probably closer to an hour of unreleased cues we know about, plus who knows how many additional cues for scenes that were completely deleted, or earlier versions of cues for scenes we have.
     
    We need Matessino to be allowed to go through everything recorded for the sequel trilogy and construct complete releases!
     
    Also: I really wish the FYC had been longer that 50 minutes!
     
    There's lots of unreleased cues that don't feature old themes that could have been included.

    First, the Pope must recognize that having scored the 9 SW movies, John Williams did a Miracle. Then we proceed to the canonization. After we’ll celebrate the 4th of May as the Saint-John-Williams.

    Exactly. He might be 87, but he's a sprightly 87-year-old (my own granddad passed at 86, in considerable worse shape the last couple of years of his life). More like 77 in 'physical age' if judging by his appearances lately. So I'm optimistic and hoping for another whole decade of new Williams music in some form or another. He'll be like Mozart, composing on his death bed and relating his notes to some Salieri (William Ross?).
     
    Let's hope he'll be like Portuguese film director Manuel de Oliveira, who directed films untill the very end, at age 106(!).

    I don't really know why, but I really like the Imperial March rendition in Finale. As far as I can tell, there isn't anything special about it. Sounds the same as every time I've heard it in a concert arrangement recording. There's no reason for me to really like it. Yet, for some reason, I really do. Somehow the orchestra has never sounded larger, more fierceful, or brighter playing it than when we hear it in Finale (IMO).

    The attention to detail being paid to the score by so many people in this thread is amazing. I saw the film last night and I couldn’t keep track of all the moments where I heard music I loved but not found on the OST or FYC.
     
    For now, I’ll say that I adore how Rey’s theme on piano (from The Force is with you; OST) was saved for the moment after Palpatine drains her and the camera is on her lifeless face. It was a magical use of color for an important and poignant moment.

    Agreed, but he had a few minutes spare. Including the training cue at the start of the OST would've been a great opener between the first two cues, just to re-establish Rey's Theme.
