The Complete Star Wars Prequels Boxset vs. The Rise of Skywalker OST

  1. 1. If both was released at the end of the year, but you're allowed to get only one, which would you get?

    • The Complete Star Wars Prequels Boxset
    • Star Wars Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker OST

If The Complete Star Wars Prequels Boxset (done by MM, of course) was released at the end of this year, and you're allowed to get either this or the OST album of The Rise of Skywalker, which would you get? Over seven hours of well-known music in pristine condition on official releases, or just slightly over 70 minutes of brand-new, never-before-heard music. 

 

Easy enough question. But dear God, I couldn't decide for the life of me. 😂

what a stupid thread

Why not say "almost 80 minutes"?

That's exactly the kind of thing Josh would do.

for sure!

 

I think so too. 

 

Although it would absolutely crush me if I couldn't listen to the new, likely very last Star Wars score from JW on the OST album.

The TFA OST ran 77 minutes

 

The TLJ OST ran almost 78 minutes

 

Why would the TROS OST suddenly only be slightly over 60 minutes?

Semantics. 

 

1 hour and 15 to 20 minutes. 

 

For me that's slightly over 1 hour. Or if you like it better, I could say, slightly over 70 minutes.

Like I said, semantics. I could also say almost one 18th of a single day.

Dreaming of the complete score for "Attack of the clones" and " Revenge of the Sith"

and a good release for "Phantom Menace" ;)

 

Ditto! 

 

I saw the prequels probably at the most impressionble ages of my life... 17 to 22.

That's a very hard question... I'll be on the minority here, but I would chose TROS, because it's unheard new music by JW, while the prequels I've listened to countless bootlegs and the Ultimate Edition of TPM a lot over these years. So yeah, TROS is more of an urgent matter to me, while the prequels can wait... for a while.

Not for a while. For life. 😂

On the other hand, I might change my mind if the Matessino Star Wars prequels box set includes a cue by cue analysis of the themes and music

 

In last year's interview MM mentioned he does not like to do those anymore, he prefers the listener to experience the music for themselves (which I appreciate TBH).

That's really unfortunate, and also senseless. Unlike a lot of people here, I really don't have any musical education, so detailed cue by cue analysis is how I can better understand the composer's intentions on every cue.

 

Fortunately, some people on the internet still do that, like our colleague Incanus or Craig Lysy at Movie Music UK.

Prequel box set should be  a main objective of all JWfans so I'd pick that

 

so many hours spent doing fan edits that aren't fully satisfying in the end, even though we have most of the music in decent qualilty . And Gigabytes of videogame rips sitting around uselessly on my hard drives. I can't wait for the day where I can delete all of that clutter. I'd even pick  a pristine sessions leak of the Prequels over TROS (which we know we'll be complaining about the unreleased music 1 day after the album release)

The more interesting poll would be receiving either a Complete Prequel/Original Trilogy box set vs Williams actually scoring The Rise of Skywalker at all (but never getting proper MM releases of the first 6 scores).

 

You can only choose one! Mwahahahaha!

This thread will reveal where everyone's true loyalties lie. 

 

I for one would get the Prequels boxset considering it's music I've loved for over a decade now versus a soundtrack I haven't heard which I could buy anytime.

The question specifically stated you're only allowed to buy one, so you can't just buy it anytime.

 

Don't you guys know there are RULES to these pointless POLLS?!

If a hypothetical prequel boxset was, say, $60, and the TROS OST was $15, and I only had $60 in my bank account, I would get the prequel boxset for sure. I have been waiting for many years for a prequel expansion, and only about a year for the TROS score.

 

Also, keep in mind that a prequel boxset would likely be a limited edition, meaning that it could potentially sell out rather quickly. The TROS album on the other hand will essentially have an infinite supply, both physical and digital. I could always just listen to the TROS album on the VEVO YouTube channel, or just download it from one of the websites that we can't talk about here. Or I could simply wait a week to have an additional $15 to buy the TROS album. The TROS album isn't going anywhere, but there's no way I'd willingly miss out on a limited edition prequel boxset.
