  1. 1. The Empire Strikes Back - Best transitions of all the themes presented, the closest we've had to a Han and Leia concert arrangement for years (until now). The Imperial March statement still knocks me off my feet. 

     

    2. A New Hope - That force theme fanfare always hits my nostalgia button, great arrangement and the best transition from the film to the credits. 

     

    3. Return of the Jedi - My favourite blast of the main theme is in this version, LSO nailed it. 

     

    4. The Force Awakens - Great collection of all the themes, good performance all round, love Jedi Steps.  

     

    5. Attack of the Clones - I like the build up to the actual credits and the blending of Across the Stars with Anakin's Theme, however it's boring that it's just the concert version of Across the Stars, disappointing.  

     

    6. The Last Jedi - A few new ideas in the credits but overall disappointing and doesn't sound as cohesive as the others. 

     

    7. The Rise of Skywalker - The collection of themes is good, but not as strong as others. Love the new recording of the Imperial March, but very disappointed in the Rey material, just a lift from Rey's Theme. 

     

    8. The Phantom Menace & Revenge of the Sith - Both are disappointing, just the same material that is in the OST's. Great performances from the LSO doing the A New Hope material but overall material selection was boring and predictable.

    The score is fantastic, but again without context and a proper presentation its a bit... whelming? Like not quite underwhelming, just whelming. It's about average compared to the previous two JW Star Wars scores; I was expecting something a bit more grandiose considering this is literally his last Star Wars score ever.

    I'm feeling the same. I'm hoping the actual score has a lot more than this, considering the film is over 2 hours long and this is only 50 minutes, i'm hoping this is just a quick grab and doesn't really represent the score. 

     

    That being said, Imperial March statement in The Old Death Star floored me.

    That was me who picked up TLJ at Epcot! And only because someone here posted that SOMEONE ELSE on another forum got it early at Epcot (which, of course, is always how these things go). I remember driving over to Epcot after work one day and getting there about 20 minutes before closing, thinking I was a complete freaking idiot...until I saw it on the shelf. That was an exciting drive home. :)

    I remember this day so well! I burnt it to a CD straight away, threw it in the Hi-Fi, boosted the volume to 11, sat there and I laughed, cheered and cried.
