    Now that's a crescendo. Reminds me of the opening to Inception (a little bit).

    THE LAST JEDI, hands down. Basically everything I liked from THE FORCE AWAKENS, but more. TFA was great for defining the sound of the ST; TLJ honed it and perfected it. And "The Fathiers" is one of the most exciting chase cues from Williams in years.

    Well according to David Arnold, "we don't put out soundtracks, records and film companies do".
     
    Well then, if you're aware it'll get an album...why not make it enjoyable to listen to?

    Notice how this debate is non-existent when the score is actually good.

    Exactly! Balfe seems to want the "best" from both worlds: to write a mediocre score with the minimum effort (or talent) that doesn't hold up outside the picture, and to cash in on an overlong soundtrack release.

    Locrius got a reaction from Will in John Powell's SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (2018)   
    IIRC, Powell said in a couple interviews that Williams also scored a couple "cues"—as in, he didn't only write "The Adventures of Han". My guess (as has been since I first heard the track) is that 1:10 till the end of "Dice & Roll" is pure Williams.

    Funny how The Pursuit of the Falcon could easily be a Star Wars track title.

    John Powell is the next one. He's only going to get better, especially if any more SW spinoffs are made-it seems JW has given him the reigns and approves.
    I love Chicken Run very, very much, however since, John Powell has excelled.
    John Powell Greatest Works
    How to Train Your Dragon 1 & 2
    His top work to many. No. 3 on its way.
    Solo: A Star Wars Story 
    Unlike his fellow SW Spinoff Composer Mike Giacchino, he decided to write a number of great themes and motifs, bringing to life old ones of Williams composition.
    Horton Hears a Who
    It's Powell at his best-which is crazy because he's only getting better.
    Ferdinand
    I have not given it my full attention this yet, but a few bits sound great to my ears.
     
    He also just released Hubris, the choral spectacular.
     
    Harry Gregson-Williams is the black sheep in my books. I actually stopped a Narnia movie in disgust because of him. I don't really regard his work that much, so it's not fair.

    Really? I thought it was one of the MCU's weakest entries. There are plenty of good-to-great moments in the film (the Yondu arrow scene was badass), but the entire thing is padded out and derailed by overly unripe jokes that are initially okay and then quickly overstay their welcome.

    I'll tell you what I make of it.
    It is an honor to have the Guards play the piece, regardless of who they are playing it for.
