I enjoyed John Williams fan of his music. this one is a great one to get if you like his stuff.
Kurt Mstoecklhuber
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!
JR Pinto
Its amazing how he can still create original pieces of music that are stunningly brilliant and memorable.

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.

WOW!! I just finished listening to the CD, courtesy of AOL's listening party. It is the best prequel score, and the best Star Wars score since Star Wars Episode V. It must be heard to be believed. We all know that the score for Star Wars Episode II was lacking. Williams makes up for it this time. My only complaint is that there isn't enough classic stuff: not enough Imperial March and I was hoping that the male choir piece that plays for Darth Sidious in Star Wars Episode VI would make an appearance. However, THIS CD alone is one of Williams' best work. The new theme, 'Battle of the Heroes' that plays throughout is awesome. One fianl note: at Celebration III it was said that next year, there might be a prequel bxed set of the complete score. So, 2 CDs for each film (Episodes I-III) makes a six disc set. I hope so, because while the prequel trilogy music is awesome, give us the complete score!

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.

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?
