    Unfortunately, it looks like that expanded score from The Rise of Skywalker is unofficial, according to Discogs (which is usually pretty reliable): https://www.discogs.com/John-Willia...riginal-Motion-Picture-Score/release/15553912. However, it might still be worth the buy if there’s some tracks on there that aren’t included on the standard soundtrack. I know A LOT of the music from the film was cut from the soundtrack, unfortunately, so it still might be worth the buy!

    I think that John Williams brings the best SW experience to all of the trilogies. He brings that wonderful Star Wars music to the films. Even of you aren’t a fan of some of the films, John still brings amazing music which just screams Star Wars. He did a very good job in all the trilogies. My favorite ST music song is Rey’s Theme. I like it. It just resembles Rey without any words. Amazing!

    Rey's theme is probably the pick of the crop. It does sound like an upbeat of the emperor's theme, makes you wonder if he knew all the time lol. It's not a surprise really because I think he put is heart into Rey. He really loves Daisy. Anyone see that video when he gives her his music sheets and Daisy is nearly lost for words.

    I really don't like Rose's theme because it's the first time I have said this about John Williams score. It's irritating. Shame that the Dual of Fates was cut. It really would have lifted RoS.

    But John Williams is the master. What else can you say about him. Also loved his little cameo in the film. He deserved that.

    Agreed. John Williams is truely amazing. His music has more emotion and power than any song that has lyrics. When you think of Star Wars, that music comes to mind. Weather its The Imperial March or the Force Theme, John Williams makes Star Wars, well, Star Wars.

    I found this interesting. John Williams really was heavily inspired by some composers.

    IMO, no movie score gives the audience more shivers then Williams "Imperial March".

    I think TFA was easily Williams' best work since ROTJ (minus Duel of the Fates)

    Rey's theme and the Resistance Suite really brought Star Wars into modern cinema again.

    A tad on topic... while reading last night I instructed Alexa to play "Star Wars music".
    It played a chap's piano version of the SW soundtrack.
    A bit different but wasnt bad at all.

    I agree, The TFA score was a real heavy hitter. I think the opening sequence of TLJ with the bombers really cemented for me how good the resistance theme from TFA was. It's so iconic and heroic, and just fits naturally into the existing musical canon that spans the entire saga.

    Just as a follow up this was a bust. I never received it. And I never received any responses to my e-mails. I had to file a claim with Visa to get my money back.
