LOL, save that for Tron 3 Joseph!

Song previews?

Bummer, I was hoping for a SW musical.

A McCreary Star Wars score could be interesting. Less sure about Trapanese, though, his scores tend to be very electronic and "RCP-like".

 

Don't know who is Danny Piccione.

Agree, McCreary could be very interesting and Trapanese depends... 

 

I hope Disney release an album with the music from Galaxy Edge and that someone uses Williams themes. For me is a pity how disconnected everything might be.

Joe is very talented.  Before he was famous I hung out in his studio where we talked about JW and shared some of our orchestral demos with each other and I was blown away by the quality of what he produced, it was very much in the JW and swashbuckling cinematic vein which is not the famous scores he is known for which are adaptations of electronic music.

Very underwhelming. None of these sound like they belong in the Star Wars universe (except for the Cantina music), and what's worse is that they don't really bring their own unique soundscape to compensate so it just comes off as sounding generic.

Seeing footage of Yoda instructing you in a Jedi temple and hearing this is going to be an extremely jarring Star Wars experience:

Exactly, these pieces sound like generic scores from other games and films, and in the context of Star Wars feel like imposters. 

I was always reticent to think Star Wars music had to sound one way - the Williams' way - but when you wedge modern scoring sensibilities into an already established soundscape, you run the risk of interfering with that familiar sound. I was disappointed by McCreary's and Trapanese's pieces because there we have two competent composers who've written for the orchestra, just chuck that sound and style out the window.
