Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

John Williams' lovely and moving score for the sixth Star Wars film brings thirty years of collaborating on George Lucas’ beyond-popular intergalactic franchise to a close. (Is this really the end of Star Wars? Can’t Lucas and Williams work together on a prequel to these prequels? Let us hope so, and that Jar Jar Binks is nowhere near it.) As this music accompanies the most exciting Star Wars film in many a moon, the soundtrack itself is more fun, more evil, more nasty and bumpy. Many of the heroic, anthemic themes woven throughout Episode Three: Revenge of the Sith will necessarily be familiar to any fan of the series, from the "Imperial March" to the main theme. It’s remarkable how stirring the latter can be, no matter how many times you’ve heard it, and even for those who do not have all their money invested in S.W. memorabilia. There is a lot of new music here, and the lush, extensive range of both Williams and the London Symphony Orchestra is on display, most notably in the menacing, percolating "General Grievous" and the rousing "New Hope" end theme. --Mike McGonigal

Format:Audio CD
I know Williams prefers creating albums that are a stand-alone listening experience but, honestly, is there anybody who liked the music enough to buy the album but not enough to remember the basic order it came in? When it's all out of order I'm sorry but it sounds out of order and disjointed.

I thought this album was okay when I first listened to it, but once I put it in order and, equally importantly, added Duel of the Fates in where it belonged off my Episode I CD, I fell in love with the score.

Here, then, is the film order for this CD:

1, 7, 13(0:00-1:50), 2, 6, 5, 8, 4, 11, 10, 13(1;50-end), 9, Duel of the Fates off Episode I album, 3, 12, 14, 15

Tracks 5 and 6 are made up of multiple small cues from the film, but they can't be taken apart easily, and they all come from roughly the same point in the film, so it seemed logical to me to leave them together. If you want to know exactly how to slice them up, go to jwfan.net.

The album as bought doesn't grab me, but the reorganized CD is one of my favorite score albums in years.

With Revenge of the Sith, John Williams completes the epic scores for all six of the Star Wars films. Revenge of the Sith is the darkest of the scores, but he is able to keep the score fresh despite using several themes heard in previous films. He doesn't go overboard with the Imperial March, and other themes like the Force theme are very solemn. There are new themes added to the fold, including one that describes Anakin's fall to the Dark Side, heard on tracks 3, 4 and 9 best I think. Despite the fact that this cd does not contain every aspect of the score like the soudtrack releases for the original trilogy, it flows very well. From the first track, one can tell that this score is action packed and very very somber and dark. Yet, as the last track says "A New Hope and End Credits". Right before the final bombastic rendition of the Star Wars theme, one hears a very tender rendition of Princess Leia's theme and Luke's theme from Episode IV as the twins are born, linking the 2 trilogies. Overall, I rate this score highly and believe it is a great finish to this Star Wars Saga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Williams at his Best! May 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This score CD is incredible. It fits perfectly into the Star Wars saga and succeeds at evoking the various moods and emotions of Episode III in particular. Less atmospheric in nature than "Attack of the Clones," this album hearkens back to Williams' earlier Star Wars works, particularly "Star Wars" and "The Empire Strikes Back." This is due in part to more frequent appearances of familiar themes (and in some cases, suites) from those films into this score. This is perfectly logical, given that this chapter in the prequel trilogy completes the bridge to the original trilogy.

"Battle of the Heroes" is the latest grand Star Wars suite, offering an energetic three minutes and 42 seconds of Williams at his best. Operatic in scope, desperate in mood, precise in execution, this track will almost certainly rank as highly as "Duel of the Fates" with fans of Williams' previous Star Wars scores.

Other tracks of note include the bombastic opening "Star Wars and The Revenge of the Sith," the moody and sinister "Palpatine's Teachings," "Anakin Vs. Obi-Wan," the tragic "The Immolation Scene," and "The Birth of the Twins and Padme's Destiny."

An extra special bonus is the inclusion of "Star Wars: A Musical Journey," a 70 minute DVD featuring 16 muisc videos of selected Williams-penned suites set to video and audio from all six Star Wars films. Actor Ian McDiarmid (Palpatine) is our host for the DVD, introducing each video with a brief synopsis of the particular events surrounding the images we are about to witness. Seeing these videos tell the grand story that is Star Wars is nothing short of pure magic. Kudos to the production team for a perfect editing job.

2.0 out of 5 stars So much is missing January 16, 2007
By Rory
Format:Audio CD
I am a diehard Star Wars fan and own all the scores. This one, though good, fell short. Take Anakin VS Obi Wan for instance, the beat just isn't there like it was in the movie, drums perhaps, and takes away the excitement contained in that scene. Later in the movie, we see Vader on the Star Destroyer and Padme's funeral, and the music isn't on this CD. Palpatine's Teachings is my favorite because it is as dark as we heard it in the movie, but a lot shorter. Granted, it took several years before all of the music was released for the original three episodes and I think that stinks. Why can't these scores be released the way we heard them in the movie and all at once?

5.0 out of 5 stars ...Rise! May 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD is definitely worth the investment from any Star Wars fan; not just because of the music, but because of the free bonus DVD!

THE CD: The music for the new movie sounds great. Unfortunately, "Duel of the Fates" does not seem to make an appearance. The fun of buying the soundtracks ahead of time is to try to guess at the action it accompanies. Also, the tracks won't necessarily go in order of appearance. I will not read the titles of any of the tracks, lest some vital plot point be given away the way it was in The Phantom Menace.

THE DVD: This disc contains over an HOUR of Star Wars footage cut to music - including the new "Hero Falls" video. They are all introduced by Ian McDairmid, aka Emperor Palpitine. I didn't watch the whole thing as I am trying to keep my exposure to Episode III to a minimum before I see the movie; all ready, the clips on talk shows have me closing my eyes and singing "LA-LA-LA!"
