I'm luvin' it. But Heroes hasn't grown on me just yet. I'm liking the juxtapositioning of the old themes to new arrangements with the newer pieces of music.

I'm not attatched to "Heroes" yet either. Surprising since Williams' past two main themes for the prequels got instant reaction from me.

"Anakin VS Obi-Wan" is the fast-paced song to go to on this soundtrack.

I think all the songs are great. I'd like to see where some of the parts in the last song are in the movie, especially the end song from ANH

I thought it topped just about every score minus ESB and was tied up there with ROTJ's Battle of Endor.

The soundtrack has been a huge part of the Star Wars series being enjoyable, IMO.

I would rank this one third (after several listens, but might change after I see it in the film).

#1 - A New Hope (Main music, Empire theme, the music during the battle run just makes the whole thing come together)

#2 - Empire (Good loud stuff, lots of kettle drums )

#3 - This one. Haven't seen the film but the soundtrack is on par to help out the film. (soundtrack was lacking for the most part in the first 2)

Along with the March, it's got:
Asteroid chase
Han & Leia (Love theme)
Jedi Master Revealed (Which is my favorite musical piece of the OT)

I'm still a bit surprised on why they chose the "Throne Room" theme for the end credits for ROTS. I suppose it's just to foreshadow what's going to happen in the future.

BTW, I'm willing to bet that 00:29 on track 15 is when we see
Spoiler:
Baby Luke's face.

I just listened to a few tracks, and something caught my attention (then again, it could be nothing).

Track 1, around 2:24, it appears Williams has referenced Xizor's Theme from the Shadows of the Empire soundtrack.

Wonder if we'll see a reference to it in ROTS

Edited to add (5/3): Apparently the track I heard this on isn't on the official release (must be fan made or something).

I thought this soundtrack was alright, but I liked TPM and AOTC soundtracks much better.

Why must a piece of music "grow" on you? If you hear something a few times and still don't like it, maybe it's just an uninspired bit of music.

I don't like it.

The main theme and ESPECIALLY the end theme seem slowed down.

And I appreciate the Throne Room theme interspersed with the End theme, but how many key changes of the same theme can go over and over and over again? Sounds like Williams was filling in for time on that one.

But otherwise, the new themes are good, not great, but good.

To be honest, I had high hopes for it. I wanted to hear "Emperial March" theme over and over but sorry guys, Williams took another direction with the score. His "Battle Of The Heroes" is a rip off/wanna be "Duel Of The Fates" and not in a good way.

The only track which deeply touched me and truly freaking masterpiece is "The Immolation Scene". Oh boy, this track is full of pain and suffering. Especially, when I see a picture below, this track brings a tear to my eyes. This track is "the pain" track from all 6 episodes.

The second best track is "Anakin's Betrayal"

*SPOILER PICTURE* CLICK AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Well, grab the score and check it out.

Grade 2.5/5.

Gutz... not that I give a shit, but you probably shouldn't be sticking spoiler pics in a random thread about the soundtrack.

There are probably people out there who want to discuss the soundtrack but don't want to have something like that shown to them.

Good point, I didn't realize that some peeps do not read "SW III SPOILER THREAD" with over 160,000 hits.

Sorry.
