There are some spoilers in the track titles, but it's mostly very vague and un-spoilery

 

Even listening to the thing through, I can't really say there's something to be gleaned as to the contents of the movie.

Listening more, I'm surprised how much old themes is on this FYC album.  There's jut way, WAY more old themes here than new themes.  Not what I was expecting.

It seems to mostly be an absurd amount of leitmotif, meandering underscore connecting many renditions of themes/motifs over and over again. It's a lot like TLJ, unfortunately.

 

Hopefully, the album has more standalone pieces of music without all this Mickey Mousing and autopilot scoring, otherwise I'm fully prepared to write this one off.

Are FYC albums usually in chronological order? If so, I'm surprised that the emperor's theme occurs so early in the movie in track 2. But it is a absolutely kick-ass version.  

 

Per academy stipulations, they HAVE to be in chronological order

For the score to the concluding chapter, that kind of treatment makes a lot more sense than it did in The Last Jedi, so I don't mind it.

 

Plus, it really helps that a lot of the material is really very varied.

Anyone else notice a very peculiar passage in Approaching the Throne that resembles 'Palpatine Instructs Anakin' in Revenge of the Sith, as Palpatine tells Anakin to kill the Jedi and go to Mustafar. 

 

Yeah, I thought this was odd

I just had to move a post out of this thread.  

Please, people, no film spoilers here in this thread, until after the film is out.


If you want to discuss the leaked plot of the film and how this music relates to it, do so in the spoilers-allowed thread here:
