Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There's never been anything quite like the symphonic film music series that John Williams has forged for George Lucas's sprawling Star Wars saga. By the time the sixth chapter rolls around, Williams will have created a body of work that spans fully 30 years of his career, a virtual Ring Cycle of sci-fi/fantasy soundtrack music. While Attack of the Clones again achieves the high standards of its predecessors, it also succeeds by both forging some rewarding new musical themes at the same time it begins to bring the galactic fable full circle. The budding relationship between now-teenaged Anakin Skywalker and Amidala/Padme is informed by "Across the Stars--Love Theme from Attack of the Clones," a grand romantic motif that's infused with a subtle melancholy that hints at the tragedy that must ultimately befall the young lovers. The composer's mastery of idiom and color serve him especially well in the action cues, infusing "Zam the Assassin and the Chase Through Coruscant" and "Jango's Escape" with bracing doses of 20th-century modernism and its inherent rhythmic fury performed, as always, by the London Symphony Orchestra. Williams also incorporates the "Force" and "Jedi" themes of the first SW trilogy sparingly, before "Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale" completes the musical/thematic tapestry by interweaving The Empire Strikes Back's menacing "Imperial March" with both the new "Love Theme" and the Phantom Menace's dramatic choral showcase "Duel of the Fates." This sweeping denouement should rightfully take its place among the saga's most compelling musical sequences. Purists may grouse at the obviously abridged music here, but given history a complete/ultimate edition of the score can't be far behind. This soundtrack is issued with one of four different, collectible covers. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars A force-ful score for Clones...... October 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones is composer/conductor John Williams' fifth score for the Star Wars saga. As in the previous four soundtracks, Williams melds new musical material with familiar themes and once again comes up with a wonderful symphonic score.
As I listen to the soundtrack from "Attack of the Clones," different scenes from the movie come flashing through my mind. From the "Star Wars Main Title," with its disappearing logo and title crawl to "Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale," this album held me breathlessly captive as I followed Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Padme through the many perils and tribulations they go through on their rendezvous with destiny. And just as Lucas' visuals take the viewer from the tall skycrapers of Coruscant to the rolling meadows of Naboo and into the unfriendly arena on Geonosis, Williams' themes help the listener recall these images through the emotional context of the music.
Along with the visuals and the storyline, Williams' music is evolving "towards" the existing Classic Trilogy's thematic contact even as new action cues add freshness and avoid the "been-there, done-that" staleness that kills movie sequels and their scores.
Of particular note among the action cues is the combined "Zam the Assasin and The Chase Through Coruscant," a percussion-heavy composition that accompanies scenes with the Clawdite bounty hunter Zam Wessel and her frantic efforts to escape from Obi-Wan and Anakin through Coruscant's planetwide cityscape. It is fast-paced and relentless, alternating between purpose and desperation as the chase unfolds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars Is Back! June 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Well, to begin this review I have to say that my expectations on this score were very high. But it didn`t sounded like I had predicted. In fact, it is quite different from it`s predecessor, The Phantom Menace, which was also a wonderfull score full of stunning themes and inspiring cues. This is the darkest and most serious Star Wars score so far,and it`s also more in style to the original trilogy than "The Phantom Menace". As George Lucas says, this is an interesting film,because it explores all new territories and elements in the Star Wars Saga, and that can be heard in the music too.
This score isn`t as thematic as the other SW scores, but in fact, I just find that relaxing because it makes the music less predictable.
Here is a track-by track analysis with ratings for each track : (Note!This analysis may contain mild spoilers, but I`ve tried not revealing too much).
1)Main Title & Ambush On Coruscant (3:45) : Main Title is the same as always and no Star Wars score begins without it!The rest of the track is quite dark and introduces a new motif for Count Dooku, the new villain. But the track is mislabeled - it should be "Main Title & Arrival on Kamino", as it is heard when Obi-Wan arrives on Kamino. Great track. ****
2)Across The Stars (5:33): I reeeeallly LOVE this one!This is the new,bittersweet,love theme for Anakin and Amidala. It is quite different from everything else in Star Wars we`ve heard before. It is more sounding like a love theme from the 40`s, and it`s really stunning. It doesn`t give a happy feeling, like the Han & Leia love theme, but it perfectly portrays the forbidden love - a Jedi should feel no anger,nor hatred, nor love!This is the main new theme of Episode II, and it is really memorable.
Definitly the best love theme ever done by Williams!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Jerry Goldsmith than John Williams May 17, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a Star Wars soundtrack goes, this one is probably the least Star Wars-y. Track 2 which contains the "Love Theme" is a lovely bit of music. Track 3 "Zam the Assassin and The Chase Through Coruscant" reminds me more of some of Jerry Goldsmith's work in the original "Planet of the Apes" and "Total Recall". It's dissonant, fast, lots of percussion, and at times thinly orchestrated. The electric guitar heard twice in the cue only adds to the excitement. Track 7 "Jango's Escape" is more in keeping with what one expects from a Star Wars film action cue. Track 8 "The Meadow Picnic" is probably the best cue on the CD. Lovely, haunting, and somewhat chilling.
To sum up, this music is typical John Williams but it's going to disappoint those who love the loud, full orchestra orchestrations heard in the other movies because there isn't as much here. From a stylistic standpoint, this is more like what one hears in John Williams' music written for the concert hall. However, those who know and like the alternate unused cue for the battle on Jaba's sand barge in "Return of the Jedi" or "Battle in the Snow" from "The Empire Strikes Back" will appreciate this CD more I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attack of John Williams April 27, 2002
Format:Audio CD
After the success of the brilliant score to "The Phantom Menace", we are treated to John Williams' follow-up "Star Wars" score. It is much darker and complex than the previous one, and fits in nicely next to the scores to "The Phantom Menace", "A New Hope", "The Empire Strikes Back", and "Return of the Jedi".
In "The Phantom Menace" soundtrack, there were several new themes introduced, including the "March of the Trade Federation", "Qui-Gon's Theme", "Jar Jar's Theme", and more importantly "Anakin's Theme" (which contains hints of the "The Imperial March") and the astounding "Duel of the Fates".
In "Attack of the Clones", the major new theme that is introduced is "Across the Stars (Love Theme)". It is a simple, hauntingly beautiful theme. Its layered, sweeping, and grand melody reflects the romantic and doomed love between Anakin and Padme.
The score not only covers new ground in the Star Wars music universe, it creates new ground. There is lots of rich, pounding percussion and eerie dissonance integrated into the music, and there are also some quotes of themes from the old trilogy--including The Force Theme, Yoda's Theme, and the Imperial March.
The only setback to the score was the minimal use of Anakin's Theme, Duel of the Fates, and the Star Wars Main Theme. But other than that John Williams accomplishes a great feat in creating another fantastic score. And unlike "The Phantom Menace" score, this one follows the linear storyline of the film.
In the first track, "Star Wars Main Title and The Ambush on Coruscant" displays a great rendition of the main theme before leading into some dark rhythmic music that sets the darker tone of this score. This is followed by the beautiful "Across the Stars".
