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

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.
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.Read more ›
