Product Description

Product Description

Since the first film in the Star Wars series was released in 1977, Star Wars has become the most popular film series in history. John Williams' soundtracks for the series have been--and will continue to be – one of the most important parts of the phenomenon. Star Wars: Episode III--Revenge of the Sith is the last instalment of the worldwide epic phenomena. The sixth album, newly composed and conducted by the five-time Oscar winner John Williams, is a celebration of one of the most artistic collaborations ever created. George Lucas understands the enormous impact that music has had on his films, and John Williams has been part of his enterprise since the very beginning.

The bonus DVD, Star Wars: A Musical Journey, will feature film excerpts and music from all six Star Wars soundtracks. Chronologically, it will take the viewer through the entire saga in 16 glorious movements. This is the first time that a bonus DVD has been offered with a Star Wars soundtrack.

BBC Review

Pity John Williams writing his umpteenth Star Wars score.Although with all those royalties rolling in, pity is perhaps not quite the right word. Consider at least the tedium of it. No one asked Wagner for a prequel to the Ring Cycle, did they?

Burdened with a legacy of his own making, Williams' technique for the three prequel scores has been to embroider the films' existing musical mythology, retro-fitting familiar motifs from the older scores while attempting to devise distinctive new themes.

So, much of this soundtrack is a case of deja ecoute, a self-referential riffing on nostalgic sequences. "Luke and Leia", "The Imperial March", the "Force" theme and "Duel of the Fates" from Episode One - they're all here in sundry disguises for Williams and Lucas stalwarts eager to sniff out the cues.

And you can't deny how canonical they sound. The opening and closing medleys areas statley as aGalactic galleon, as festive as the Last Night of the Proms.

The fresh material is more patchy. The most significant new theme is "Battle of the Heroes". Buzzing with stressed-out strings, hyperactive brass and a suicidal choir, this is as mesmeric as anything Williams has written. Sony must think so - it's set for release as the first ever Star Wars single.

Other new material is less memorable. "General Grievous" and "Anakin vs. Obi-Wan" are merely adequate adventure anthems. And, anticipating the defection of the supposed hero to the dark side, there is a preponderance of broodily low-key numbers. "Padmes Ruminations and Palpatines Teachings" are atonal, syncopated fillers, disappointingly portentous.

Issued two weeks in advance of the film release on 19 May, this disc is flagrant titillation, fanning those fans already queuing outside Hollywood's Chinese Theatre into greater paroxysms of anticipation. Heavens, there are folks who are not even reading the soundtrack titles in case they spoil the plot!

Will they be disappointed? Of course not. In Sith, the Empire strikes back with all the familiar notes. They just don't sound quite as startling any more. --Morag Reavley

Format: Audio CD
For years we've been hearing that Episode III is going to be the darkest chapter of the Star Wars saga, and if the soundtrack is anything to go by, that promise is about to be fulfilled in spectacular style.
John Williams' score is a far more sombre affair this time. Of course, there are still the rousing battle themes such as 'The Revenge of the Sith' and 'Grievous and the Droids', but the majority of the material here is shot through with a mixture of overwhelming evil and tragic despair. The main new theme, 'Battle of the Heroes', is a perfect example; menacing and exciting, but with more than a hint of sadness running through it. For those like me who love 'Duel of the Fates' from Episode I, there's plenty of the same spine-chilling choral work, and the emotive 'Across the Stars' also appears in some of the more melancholy moments. As this film forms the link to the original Star Wars trilogy, it's good to see some old favourites making a reappearance, most notably 'The Force Theme' and the 'Imperial March'. The End Credits piece also raises a nostalgic tear to the eye with excerpts from 'Leia's Theme' and 'The Throne Room' (although surely not all this will be heard on screen - the credits can't last for more than eleven minutes, can they...?)
Far from 'dropping the ball', John Williams has produced a work which easily exceeds the other two Prequel soundtracks, although it cannot match 'The Empire Strikes Back' - surely the finest soundtrack ever produced. As for plagurising elements from a lesser composer's work on a lesser film, the idea is risible. It's a marvellous album, and promises a thrilling, emotional journey come May 19th.
My only complaint is.. why only a selection from the film? Whay not the full, double-CD treatment?

Easily being the most anticipated soundtrack of the year, Revenge of the Sith was at the top of the list of my must-buys. Battle of the Heroes obviously stands out as the new theme of the movie (not as accomplished as 'Duel of the Fates' in my opinion) and its phrases of choir and good old-fashioned Williams' brass carry quite a bit of power. However, this and most of the disc's other themes seem to appear briefly and kept to a few tracks so there's quite a bit of non-thematic variety here, especially 'Palpatine's Teachings' and 'Padme's Ruminations', which feature lots of continuous droning, quite unlike previous Star Wars scores.
One of the highlights is 'Anakin's Betrayal', a track similar to 'You are the Pan' from 'Hook' that is full of tragedy and endlessly playable. There is plenty of sorrow in this soundtrack such as 'Anakin's Dream', 'The Immolation Scene' and 'Padme's Destiny' and it really does give you the sense that things are looking bleak. The CD then ends full circle with a welcome return of themes from 'A New Hope'.
Overall, the CD is okay but suffers a little from the bad editing that plagued the original release of 'The Phantom Menace' and it's obvious that a lot of the tracks were just not intended to be presented this way. It does have fortune of growing on you after a few listens and it gets a lot of bonus points for a superb extra DVD that revisits all the great themes from the saga. As a two-disc set, it's a great buy.

I've been waiting for this since i heard the music with the full trailer and i can tell you now that if 'Duel Of the Fates' was your bag 'Battle of the Heroes' on this soundtrack is gonna blow you away both musically and emotionally. Other Tracks to look out for are 'Anakins Betrayl' and the 'New Hope and End Credits' track which contain nearly all of the key elements from the entire saga.
The DVD is also exceptional with Ian McDiarmid presenting some the best combinations of music and excerpts from the saga in 70 minutes of musical and visual delight and if you haven't already seen the 'A Hero Falls' music video on Star Wars.com it will give you some more insight into the film its self without totally spoiling it such as 'Duel of the Fates' did.

Format: Audio CD
I bought this with drooling anticipation (naturally) and to be honest I did feel slightly disappointed intially. I suppose because after William's previous efforts, this did not seem to have that Star Wars WALLOP I'd become accustomed to.
Fortunately, I WAS WRONG! This is, as I suggest, a real 'grower' and the themes just get better and better after each listen, so much so that this is just an addictive soundtrack that I rate right up there with the best. There are subtleties here among the more familiar themes (Williams relies on the Force Theme as well as Luke and Leia's Themes, and of course Vader's March) but tracks like the absolutely stunning Anakin's Betrayal flesh out the musical language of Episode III.
The new theme, Battle of the Heroes, is at first seemingly not as striking as Duel of the Fates, but listening to this and the album highlight Anakin Vs. Obi-Wan reminds you that Williams is a quiet genius at integrating themes of doom and tragedy for this final chapter even while he is injecting (a new) hope through familiar themes and weaving a totally masterful Star Wars listening experience. An absolute must-buy, rewarding you on many levels and after many listens. This demands, and deserves, your full attention.
