With George Lucas' Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones impressively showcasing rich drama beyond the customary eye-popping spectacle, long-time franchise collaborator John Williams' score follows suit with a rewarding and compelling mix of tragedy-tinged romance and epic action, enveloped in a pervading air of approaching doom. Dispensing with The Phantom Menace's exuberant, youthful orchestrations, more at home in E.T., Attack of the Clones pleasingly mirrors Williams' work on franchise zenith The Empire Strikes Back.

Fans will delight in the increased appearance of the series' classic themes, underlining the wider saga and tantalisingly foreshadowing future events while, like a Bond score, retaining the series' beloved musical signature. Williams frames the film's tragic romance with a beautiful love theme, "Across the Stars". A sweeping epic with a melancholic edge, it's the strongest track, the "threatened romance" theme further showcased in "Anakin and Padme" and "The Meadow Picnic". Yet, the action cues find Williams on equally glorious form. "Jango's Escape" and "Bounty Hunter's Pursuit" are thoroughly exciting fare while "Zam the Assassin" is a breathless 11-minute epic, with Williams exploring new ground, with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon-esque percussion and, surprisingly, electric guitar. The forbidding atmosphere reaches a deliriously thrilling crescendo with "Return to Tatooine", "The Tusken Camp" and "Love Pledge and the Arena", a heart-rending collision of romance, action and inescapable dread, interwoven with a plethora of the series themes. When "The Imperial March" makes a full-blown appearance in "Confrontation with Count Dooku"--as a victorious fanfare, no less--it recalls the best heart-stopping moments of Williams' original Star Wars orchestrations.

Coming so far in to such a distinguished career, this is an impressive, memorable work that once again showcases Williams' virtuoso affinity with cinema and, beyond that, a magnificent fifth segment in his eventual Magnum Opus. --Danny Graydon

Well, its that time of year again for all the studios to release their summer biggies, and along with them the annual spurt of everyone's soundtrack collection. This is an exciting time of year for any score fan, but when it's accompanied by the words 'John' and 'Williams', 'Star' and 'Wars', you just know you're in for a great time. This time around is no exception. Including all the themes already in everyone's subconcious from the original trilogy, he also brings to the fore once again the 'invasion' theme from Phantom Menace (this time used as a more general theme for the federation and its still useless droids) and the Duel of the Fates. And then there's THAT love theme. Oh my. Epic, stunning, graceful. All of the above. I won't go into the specifics of each track, I don't want to put any ideas, good or bad into your heads, you simple HAVE to discover and experience a Star Wars score for yourself, sufficed to say, for me, the stand-outs tracks are Across the Stars (the aforementioned love theme), Yoda and the Younglings (an almost ethereal piece subtly combined with elements of the 'Force' theme), Return to Tatooine (you can almost see Anakin fuming with rage as he desperatly searches for his missing mother) and the final battle(s) music, spread over three tracks, culminating in perhaps the most hair tingling moment of all, the full blown return of the Imperial March! My only problem with the score is there just isn't enough of it. At some point a full uncut version will no doubt be released, as happened with The Phantom Menace. It's just such a shame we all have to wait so long.......

I have just bought my copy today of the new Star Wars score by John Williams and it is nothing short of excellent!
It suceeds in bringing some of the themes established in The Phantom Menace and interlinking them with music from the original Star Wars trilogy (including The Imperial March which provides a truly spine-tingling moment on the CD!). Not overlooking of course the superb new material that Williams has written, yet again pushing the musical bounderies of the Star Wars universe that he has created. The "Love Theme" that recurrs throughout the score is suitably melancholic and haunting and the "Chase through Coruscant" is edge-of-the-seat exciting, electric guitar riffs included!
If there is to be any criticism with this new score, it is the fact we all know that in due time there will be a double CD available with all the recorded material from Attack of the Clones. Why not release this in the first place Mr Lucas?!
Despite this, this soundtrack remains evidence that one of the finest film composers of our time is still on top form. My favourite track? It has to be the Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale, if this alone doesn't make you want to see the new Star Wars film asap then you'd better check your pulse!

The Star Wars scores continues to amaze and astound! When i heard the score to episode 1 i thought it couldn't get any better, but the score to episode 2 has truly surpassed my expectations.
The love theme "Across The Stars" is beautiful, haunting, sinister and chilling all at the same time. Also, Duel Of The Fates makes a welcome return in "Return to Tatooine", and the Imperial March makes a full blown appearance during the climax of the film in "Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale".
An essential purchase, and a true masterpiece!

Where to start??? How about at he beginning, that's usually the best place.
The opening credits everybody knows and they will for always be an institution of film music. Did you know that the first 32 bars are the same in every film? How can he get away with it everytime? who knows? who cares? If it works why change it?
Now, how can anyone fail to be moved by the love theme for this film? My brother (a confirmed John Williams obsessive) played this CD non stop and for once I didn't attempt to stop him. Even before I had seen the movie I couldn't help but stop and listen everytime I heard this theme(which is quite a lot on this CD as most of you will know), no matter what I was doing. And I must admit that it is my very favourite piece and I happen to hum it to myself almost all day every day. And now I have seen the film it moves me even more.
I don't have enough space to write here about all the movements, but I have just got to say how much I admire John Williams for always trying something new. A perfect example of this must surely be Zam the Assassin. Who would even think about using an electric guitar with a full symphony orchestra, let alone use one?... well... John Williams obviously, and to great effect!!!
All the way though this CD I think to myself it surely can't get any better, and it's almost as if John Williams can hear my thoughts for he appears to say "You Bet? Listen to what's coming" and then he again proves to me why he is the best composer of film music that we will ever see. History proves it, and the best directors continue to look to him to make their films from great to absolutly awesome.
Again I have to limit what I write, but I have to urge you that if you want a CD that fills you with passion and a sense of belonging, then this is the CD for you.
