  1. Williams applied it to the whole Reunion thing, when Luke and Leia played when Lando met his daughter. Just check this out. This guy actually have some mistakes, like he thinking that Imperial March is only Vader's theme, but overall, he is on point.
  2. Oh, never mind. I've got it from the beginning. Just my stupid nitpicking.
  3. Battle motif, cool, almost whole cue is a motif. TLJ suffers from duration and amount of underscore. And what I've wanted to write about TROS, Yoda's theme now not only Yoda's theme, Luke and Leia's theme now not their theme only too.
  4. And what about reusing Yoda theme in Reunion? I'm sorry, I've just forgot that I've wanted to mention this one.
  5. Here is something about them all from me: SW: First and classic, nuff said. ESB: Considered to be the best on Filmtracks, for example. I really like it, but it too much relies on Yoda's and Vader's themes, imo. ROTJ: Most complex work of all 9 for me. So many themes here, all finale stuff is just superb. Only minus is Ewok stuff. TPM: Most Star-Warsy from prequels and obviously the best from them, but not for me. Ending battle and all after it there is on god-tier too. AOTC: Not my cup of tea. Aside action tracks, I'm not a big fan of all this quiet romance stuff, except some tracks, like Meadow Scene. ROTS: My favourite or second after ROTJ, very emotional, hits on the same level as ROTJ in terms of drama, or even more. No Ewok stuff, woo-hoo! Not very developed in terms of themes, and that is the main compalint on Filmtracks. It's actually very funny to read reviews from release time about this score. If this is still all true, ROTS is underrated as hell. Final stuff kicks ass again. Best opening stuff by far too. TFA: Strongest from the sequels, excellent new themes, best End Titles for me. TLJ: Relies heavy on old themes, and overall feels.... I don't know. This thing with repeating opening battle music in Battle of Crait is really bothering me. So. overall, meh. I like second motif of Rebellion Reborn very much, btw. TROS: Still listening to it, but now it is the weakest for me.TLJ is close second. Minus perfomance, of course. All official releases gave us too little of final recorded amount of music. Score is butchered to hell in the movie, even prequels weren't like this. Plus very questionable use of themes, like repurposing music from ESB scene where Yoda lifts X-Wing e.t.c.
  6. LP wasn't going well in 1983, so 2LP plans were dropped and we got what we got.
  7. Never heard Fugitive ost, but Robocop 2 is dope.
  8. TPM on third, right? I'm don't know, maybe ROTS is on my third, well, yeah, TPM sounds very star-warsy, but Revenge is dark af, have ton of great action music, excellent uses of choir on multiple occassions, returned DotF and other things. And do TPM have Battle of Heroes, Lament or Anakin's Dark Deeds, for example? Even absolutely dull Grievous meeting with Palpatine scored in that way, that is sounds absolutely epic.
  9. Your experience of the score is too nostalgic-cool. RS leak isn't possible for TPM, I'm sure. At least we got Crystal Skull, but this RS still sounds little bit worse than album. And what about TPM complexity, I can argue that ROTJ is easily most complex.
  10. I have this set too, it is great and it was my re-introducing experience to SW soundtracks. But I'm still prefer mine most complete edits or Anthology. And what annoys me about original albums, is phantom menace chopped to pieces, for example.
  11. Forgot to mention that I wanted all OT concert pieces re-recorded in full with the same powerful perfomance as this Imperial March excerpt. But Musical Journey-like release would be cool too.
  12. We need whole piece re-recorded like that. Or compilation featuring all concert pieces (at least from OT) can be really great. So, this LA orchestra in TROS kicked LSO ass? And this is most uncomplete and chopped to hell SW score to date, ah, irony.
  13. But you can't disagree that this version of the theme is just effing smashing. When I've first heard it, it just blew me away.
  14. Wanted to throw in additional question, why JW decided not to use LSO for sequels?
