So, the track from the trailer (Force theme w/ choir) is not in the soundtrack. I thought the OST would be the saving grace of this whole project, but turns out that it's just 'okay'...

Unfortunately, the score does seem to be one of the common criticisms among the otherwise positive impressions/reviews that I've read so far. That's a shame. :(

Williams is in his 80s. It's arguable that he hasn't been great for a decade. Serviceable, sure, but expecting another classic score is asking way too much from him at this point. He used to crank out 3 unique, and memorable, themes per movie and now you're lucky if you get one.

I had major doubts that he would be able to deliver a classic Star Wars score so this isn't a surprise to me.

This soundtrack is good. I don't want the imperial march version 150. I want new and this is it. I thought the score worked perfectly.

Yep, sounds great to me.
It's not the London Symphony Orchestra but it is a compilation of high class musicians, not just some pick-up band.

Rushing from one action scene to another doesn't give Willams much to work with as far as time to create recurring themes.

Gave it a listen..Rey's Theme and Scavenger are my early favorites. I'll be interested to take in the music in the context with their corresponding scenes. Also, I wonder how much music in the film wasn't included in the soundtrack.

I will say, based on just the soundtrack alone, there weren't any spine-tingling moments for me. That may very well change after viewing the film (which I will tonight).

I love this score.

Nice dry recording sounds a million times better than the flat-sounding prequel scores. No offense to the London Symphony Orchestra, it was the recording/mixing. This Hollywood orchestra was in Temple of Doom mode.

It feels like vintage 70s Williams, with more similarities to Close Encounters, Black Sunday and The Fury than the original Star Wars.

Something sounded "off" on the Main Title compared to say ANH.

Yes, the opening chord isn't as full. Not as rich or powerful.

There's a discussion about this on reddit and the indication is that this is the result of a 90-piece orchestra instead of 120 like the prequels and OT had. :(

I just got the CD of the soundtrack, cranked it up on my professional home theatre sound system, and the opening theme is as kick ass as ever.
I can't imagine on what shitty system these people are listening.

You don't need a 'professional home theatre sound system' to determine the theme was played with a much smaller orchestra.

I was surprised by the lack of identifiable motifs for the new characters.

My favorite cue is from when Rey is fighting Kylo. I love how the Force Theme clashes with a frantic version of Rey's theme.

I think Williams still has it, but honestly the film itself and the way it is paced, it didn't give him a chance to really develop a lot of recurring motifs. I like the score, and I hope he goes all out with the next film, but, yeah, I can see why some are disappointed. This one is much more subdued than his other SW scores.

Especially compared to ROTS, which I believe is his best SW score, maybe just behind ANH or at least on par with it.

At the start of "The Ways of the Force", you can hear the original intended rendition of the Force Theme when Rey gets the lightsaber. In the film, it was awkwardly replaced with a quote of "The Return Home" from the original score.

It's not a smaller orchestra, it's just a different orchestra. And it sounds great on my sound system.

Disney uploaded the score to their Vevo account.

After Thursday's evening viewing the soundtrack grew on me much more - particularly The Order's motif which resembles the Emperor's theme in tone. Like wise The Falcon is in the vein of Empire's Rescue from Cloud City/Hyperspace".

As stated by others the leomotifs are not standouts yet aren't filler like Attack Of The Clones. Still I would liked some more of Empire's scenes Han and Leia. The absence of Imperial March was appreciated however. The full blown inclusion on Attack Of The Clone's finale killed that score for me.


This new film's soundtrack featuring mostly new material will only grow in time.

Yes, Korngold's King's Row score is great. First time I heard it, I about jumped out of my seat, then realized it was something else. :jammin:

Does anyone out there have a link to the unabridged audio book, preferably with the chapters split into individual ones instead of a full single file?
I thought id found it today but it was just a stream. Im looking for the full download to save to my pc.

This soundtrack has grown on me since I first saw the film - but I still think its too often disjointed, chaotic, incoherent. It just too abruptly follows every beat of the film, and at times it just feels like random brass instruments blaring back & forth. There are a lot of great moments though, and I didn't realize how much I liked Rey's theme when I saw the film. That is a wonderful addition to the saga.

My favourite musical moment of the film is when Rey meets BB-8. It has a Spielergian, almost ET-like charm.

Rey's theme is a tune that stuck, after the first two viewings. A highlight
of the films score for me was the last scene.

The score's does seem too down in the mix compared to the other films.

Some interesting observations about Mr Williams body of work at this link.

There are also more pieces from the AFI YouTube channel. It'd be great to find the whole damn thing.
