Product Description

Amazon.ca

There's never been anything quite like the symphonic film music series that John Williams has forged for George Lucas's sprawling Star Wars saga. By the time the sixth chapter rolls around, Williams will have created a body of work that spans fully 30 years of his career, a virtual Ring Cycle of sci-fi/fantasy soundtrack music. While Attack of the Clones again achieves the high standards of its predecessors, it also succeeds by both forging some rewarding new musical themes at the same time it begins to bring the galactic fable full circle. The budding relationship between now-teenaged Anakin Skywalker and Amidala/Padme is informed by "Across the Stars--Love Theme from Attack of the Clones," a grand romantic motif that's infused with a subtle melancholy that hints at the tragedy that must ultimately befall the young lovers. The composer's mastery of idiom and color serve him especially well in the action cues, infusing "Zam the Assassin and the Chase Through Coruscant" and "Jango's Escape" with bracing doses of 20th-century modernism and its inherent rhythmic fury performed, as always, by the London Symphony Orchestra. Williams also incorporates the "Force" and "Jedi" themes of the first SW trilogy sparingly, before "Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale" completes the musical/thematic tapestry by interweaving The Empire Strikes Back's menacing "Imperial March" with both the new "Love Theme" and the Phantom Menace's dramatic choral showcase "Duel of the Fates." This sweeping denouement should rightfully take its place among the saga's most compelling musical sequences. Purists may grouse at the obviously abridged music here, but given history a complete/ultimate edition of the score can't be far behind. This soundtrack is issued with one of four different, collectible covers. --Jerry McCulley

Without a doubt, John Williams is one of the most amazing composers of all time. An amazing composer and an amazing score for an amazing movie saga. John managed to include hints of previous Star Wars themes while creating totally new melodies. This movie broke new ground for the Star Wars saga and it's score does as well. I die every time I hear Across the Stars- the love theme for Anakin and Padmé Amidala. It is so hauntingly beautiful, yet simply elegant at the same time. I love the electic guitar bits during 'Zam the Assassin and the Chase Through Coruscant'. Electric guitar is definitely new in a John Williams soundtrack! The 'Imperial March' is worked into 'Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale'. I nearly died when I heard that in the movie- with such incredible timing. The soundtrack holds together very well on it's own without the movie. Some soundtracks sound terrible when they're taken out of the movie. Not this one. I am very proud and actually honored to own this amazing work. I am sure that John Williams will be remembered 200 years from now as one of the most amazing composers of all time. Buy this, and allow your mind to float Across the Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Williams Nov. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
John Williams is the greatest movie score writer in the business. There are some other good ones out there, but they can't draw comparisons with Williams.
Once again he has done the music for Star Wars. Like all the previous Star Wars films most of the music is the same. Just about all of it is the same, except for the fact it might be arranged a little differently. Williams holds true to his patterns of Star Wars film in the way that he has written a beautiful new song for the Star Wars series.
The Love theme is a wonderful piece of music. George Lucas asked John to write a song that could reflect the budding relationship between Anakin and Padme. Williams doesn't disappoint. It has a familiar feel to the Leia theme but it is original. The melodoy in the song is great. It is catchy and is something that is great to whistle or hum along with.
This one is definetly a must for Star Wars fans. Fans of classical music will like it as well. It was performed by the London Symphony Orchestra who are some of the best in the world so if you like them you might want to check it out as well. I love this album and I'm glad I own. I think you'll feel the same way too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A force-ful score for Clones...... Oct. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones is composer/conductor John Williams' fifth score for the Star Wars saga. As in the previous four soundtracks, Williams melds new musical material with familiar themes and once again comes up with a wonderful symphonic score.
As I listen to the soundtrack from "Attack of the Clones," different scenes from the movie come flashing through my mind. From the "Star Wars Main Title," with its disappearing logo and title crawl to "Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale," this album held me breathlessly captive as I followed Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Padme through the many perils and tribulations they go through on their rendezvous with destiny. And just as Lucas' visuals take the viewer from the tall skycrapers of Coruscant to the rolling meadows of Naboo and into the unfriendly arena on Geonosis, Williams' themes help the listener recall these images through the emotional context of the music.
Along with the visuals and the storyline, Williams' music is evolving "towards" the existing Classic Trilogy's thematic contact even as new action cues add freshness and avoid the "been-there, done-that" staleness that kills movie sequels and their scores.
Of particular note among the action cues is the combined "Zam the Assasin and The Chase Through Coruscant," a percussion-heavy composition that accompanies scenes with the Clawdite bounty hunter Zam Wessel and her frantic efforts to escape from Obi-Wan and Anakin through Coruscant's planetwide cityscape. It is fast-paced and relentless, alternating between purpose and desperation as the chase unfolds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance, sheer brilliance... Oct. 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've actually had this soundtrack for a while, I had pre-ordered it and got it the day of release. What can I say, other than it is excellent. The new love theme is beautifully constructed, one might say that it is almost poetic it tone, it has a sweeping, majestic flow that conveys the forbidden love between Anakin and Padme, even just by listening to the theme the audience know straight away that this relationship is not to be. Short intervals between the grand tunes suggest that only danger can come of such love. The rest of the score is also a wonder to be had, very few composers pocess the qualities and imagination of John Williams, so naturally, very few can pull this sort of work off. There are numerous new, underlying, themes that make an appearance in this score, firstly the Corruption theme, a seven not piece that is played during the senate meetings, secondly a piece that is played during the arena battle, a trumpet fanfare, accompanied by drums and full orchestra, this is evident in track 12, a simply great piece of music. For many years now, star wars and John williams fans have been waiting for a powerful rendtion of the Imperial March to be played again in a new score, well, here we have it. In my opinion, Track 13's Imperial March is perhaps the best recording of it ever, it's basically the same, but with some subtle differences. Over all, a superb CD, one which any John Williams or Classical Music fan should not be without.
