Love it. Though the force theme would have worked wonders too.

 

it just saddens me this or a similar wiliams composition could have been rogue one’s hope theme for giacchino to work around.

Any differences from this recording to the live performance version?

So much more crisp and up tempo (natural for a studio recording).  I love it. 

 

I did not notice any differences, other than the very opening is not as pronounced.

Interesting!

I just can't over the fact that Williams in his late 80's and early 90's is composing some of his best tracks EVER .Pretty mind boggling.

 

Galaxy's Edge Symphonic Suite

The Rise of Skywalker

The Adventures of Han

The Rebellion is Reborn

And now this.

 

And Now This is my favorite Williams theme

The first notes reminded me of John Paesano’s Spider-Man theme.

I thought this as well.  Probably because I've been playing the game for the first time this year and that Spider-Man theme plays every time you swing around the city so, you hear it A LOT.

 

I'll have to check out this theme you are all comparing it to - what track, specifically?

Wow, I like it a lot better like this!

 

It is the JWfan.com way, according to some crappy phone recording or midi mock up, these themes are dissed. I hate this forum. Wonderful music.

The majesty of this track is off the charts

 

Don't forget Adagio and the ASM versions of Across The Stars and Han Solo and the Princess too (and the 2018 version of Han Solo and the Princess)

So, there’s now John Williams Star Wars music from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s: six different decades!

 

Depending on your point of view, we already got new JW SW music in the 2020s via the new ASM version of Han Solo and the Princess

My first impressions are (if we are comparing one-off’s) I prefer this to Galaxy’s Edge.  It’s more focused and thematically solid. 
 

 

I still prefer Galaxy's Edge but this is really good

Anyone else listening to this on repeat today instead of listening to other things you probably should be?

Well I don't think I have something I should absolutely listen to over this new theme but yes I have listened to it quite a few times today if you count the live version before the official recording of the suite was released. :lol: 

 

I should probably go back to listening to A Gathering of Friends again. Just for a change. :)

Just listened to the concert suite, and yeah, it does sounds similar to Spiderman.

 

I wonder if JW saw one of his grand-grandsons playing the game and was like "You know, I could use that for Star Wars! Need to call Kathy" :D

I think it's more likely that Paesano was subconsciously emulating a style he heard from Williams

I've listened to it on Spotify 2 times, but now I'm waiting for it to be available to purchase on 7Digital Canada. I want to get used to a lossless version, not to a 320 kbps mp3. :(

Is Tidal really better?

not trying to sound dumb but I had a 3 month trial and didn’t notice any difference at all from Apple Music

Noticing a difference from a well-made lossy file to a true lossless file is dependent on your equipment and your ears.  In many situations the difference is not noticeable.  In others it is.

This is basically how I feel when Giacchino gets brought up too, or even more obviously Haab. It feels like statistically something new John Williams writes is going to sound a little like something they wrote eventually. He would have to stop sounding so much like John Williams to avoid that.

Is nobody going to mention the obvious fact that the ending of this is completely different from the ending of the live performance yesterday? I'm a bit let-down; imo, the live version's ending is better, with the recap of the ostinato figure from the middle... Overall I love the theme, though.

Yep, noticed that too.
