  1. I listened a second time to the album that I still find "better" than TLJ — I also have an issue with the movie, and I haven't seen ROTS and won't see before a while so… But adding the right FYC tracks and… this is a really superb and powerful thematic tour de force from Williams. Themes come and go, they push the narrative, evolve, as the whole score is getting darker and darker with every track. A little piece of music like "Advice" really helps to set the right mood for the powerful "They Will Come". I feel that this is pretty much like The Phantom Menace: the original album was a bit of mess, and I always felt the 2CD version was the right way to experience the musical journey. But again, just my own taste.
  2. Unpopular opinion but I would have loved to see something similar to the double TPM album we got back in the days. It was far from being perfect, but I still love it.
  3. I should listen to the FYC just like I am listening to the official album: doing nothing else. Parents was absolutely gorgeous, probably my favorite track of the FYC. It is a bit disappointing to not see it here. But the tracklist is excellent… so… I don't know what I would have pushed out of the list.
  4. They used a lot of temp music (poor Lennertz) and they used JW? What is going on?!
  5. Where is the love for the harp in Fleeing from Kijimi? The bassoon (?) in We Go Together? I think I will agree with pretty much everybody here; this is a very nice surprise after TLJ. The new themes and motives are gorgeous. The mix of old themes and new ones is lovely. The new fanfare is wonderful. I must confess, I was still hoping for Kylo's theme to grow and turn into something… more. I always felt his theme was going to expand but I guess the movies never game him the chance (I'm not talking about TRoS, I haven't seen the movie).
  6. The movie and its soundtrack rely so much on old themes that I was just tired of hearing them. What I love about Williams and his scores for Star Wars is his reinvention. Each trilogy had its own themes, sound, orchestrations, colours… For me, at least. I grew up with The Phantom Menace and I don't think Williams got to write something as bold for anything. He was aiming for a new Star Wars sound — that eventually was ravaged by editing and Lucas and so on in the sequel. But I don't hate TLJ. This and TFA are a bit too nostalgic for my tastes. Even the Resistance theme is… it's good. It's not great. It's sounds a bit tired. I pretty much love what Williams did for Solo tho.

    Bonjour !

    Hey everyone, I've been lurking here for years and decided it was time to get into the fray. I love film music since… probably since I saw Jurassic Park (seven times) in a theatre back in the days. I was seven years old (blame my liberal parents). Since then, I've been listening to John Williams of course, but also Goldsmith, Goldenthal, Desplat, Rombi, Portman, Giacchino, and even, on some days, when I'm in the mood, Zimmer—YES I KNOW. I'm French, working in the video game industry, and spending way too much time tidying my iTunes library <3
  8. I was listening to the original album last night and suddenly I realised how muffled and low the sound is, especially considering the wonderful remasters and expanded editions we got over the years. I can't wait to get my hands on this. (and the movie really holds up as well)
