Product Description

'Episode III Revenge of the Sith' features a new score by five-time Oscar winner John Williams, who is also the composer and conductor of the score for each film in the six-chapter Star Wars saga, and an exclusive collector's DVD. Created especially to accompany the CD release, the thrilling 70-minute DVD features 16 brand-new music videos set to selections from all six of John Williams' unforgettable Star Wars film scores and has been designed around a timeline that will take the viewer chronologically through the entire saga. Sony Classics. 2005.

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

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.

John Williams is tied to the Star Wars more tightly than anyone, outside of George Lucas himself. His scores simply make Star Wars more than just an FX adventure, and this soundtrack is no different.

Williams uses the perfect tone for this score, which looks to be easily the darkest of all the films, with brooding, choral pieces that carve out new territory while echoing already established themes. "Battle of Heroes", "Enter Lord Vader", and "Anakin vs. Obi-Wan" are especially rousing, with shreds of old themes interspersed with fresh new musical arcs.

Williams has a real dilemma with Star Wars: how to maintain the consistent feel of the film's musical tone while still introducing new material that works. I think "Duel of the Fates" and "Across the Stars" from Episodes I & II worked toward this end, despite people's criticisms of the films. I think Williams lives up to this challenge each time out, and Revenge of Sith's music is another enjoyable journey into Lucas's visionary world.

Now, the DVD. Simply put, this is enough of a reason to buy the CD by itself. Each musical vignette (video, I suppose) traces the story arc of Star Wars in an entertaining way, as prequels and originals come together to tie the saga into one series. It is interesting to finally see Anakin's face blend into Vader's and then into Anakin again. Obi-Wan becomes young and aging in a seamless visual sequence. This is done again and again to satisfying degree. For those hungry for a preview of Episode III, watch "A Hero Falls" which shows new footage not seen in any of the trailers. The narration of Ian McDiarmid is also a nice touch--one can almost hear Palpatine in his pleasant dictation.

Simply put, this music is what Star Wars should be, plus a bonus DVD. You can't beat it.
