I think we had a poll on this months ago, which I couldn't find, but even so, that's moot since we didn't have the "Complete Score Collection" months ago. ESB still wins.

I love both, but I personally prefer Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. When I listen to Empire Strikes Back I rarely listen to it all the way through. It's a score where I usually want to get to the meat and potatoes, and every once in a while listen to it in full. But every time I just start a particular track of Temple of Doom, I either have to keep going on it's course from that point on or I may even start over from the beginning, suddenly aching to hear it all again. It's a score with a very tight pace and with always something interesting going on. Not only that, but so many cues flow into each other so well.

Anyway, that's my input. ;)

That's a really hard poll. I mean those two Williams Soundtracks are in his top five best works ever and i LOVE both movies. Both are the best in their series (for me).

But i have to vote for Empire, i'm just more Star Wars than Indy geek :lol:

I like all Indiana Jones scores (except KotCS) more than any Star Wars score.

So far I have been unable to choose a definite favourite John Williams score,

but it's certainly one of the first three Indiana Jones ones that gets the cake.

I still don't have the box set nor am I able to listen to the expanded KotCS,

therefore I will refrain from voting for the time being...
