Product Description

Amazon.ca

Obscured by the familiar grandeur of John Williams's score for Star Wars: Episode I, The Phantom Menace was the sheer volume of the composer's prodigious musical efforts. Not only did Williams expand on the original Star Wars trilogy's musical language with a whole new range of modern classical inspirations, but his efforts also produced more than two hours of seamless symphonic foundation for the galactic epic, enough wall-to-wall music to power three less ambitious films. This impressively packaged double-disc set offers Williams's complete Episode 1 score for the first time. It's a worthy tribute to the scoring legend's mastery of tone, dynamics, and nuance--a virtual musical tone poem that imparts much of the film's dramaturgy. Divorced from the bombastic visual assault of state-of-the-art digital effects, one is struck by the composition's emotional resonance. It's the small, quiet moments that give the story its subtle, crucial humanity; it's hard to imagine a film conceit so outlandish functioning without it. The Ultimate Edition includes a bonus track of the stirring choral centerpiece, "Duel of the Fates," with an overlaid dialogue montage, as well as a photo-rich booklet that illustrates each of the film's key scenes and musical cues. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a masterpiece!!! Dec 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have watched STAR WARS: EPISODE I -- THE PHANTOM MENACE many a time over the last few years, and if there's one thing that's struck me, it's that its music -- composed by the already-legendary John Williams -- keeps getting better each time. I'm not a big listener of classical music, but the STAR WARS music is in a league of its own. I think half the success of the movie (and the entire saga, for that matter) can be attributed to the score; the music speaks its own language, it has a life and heart of its own . . . yes, it's a character of its own, almost, without which the movie would simply perish (no offense to Mr. Lucas). I cannot imagine a more powerful, haunting, and suspenseful music than what John Williams has written for this picture. I give Mr. Williams 5 stars, but he deserves a universe full of them for his incomparable achievement. (To anyone who's lucky to already own this beautiful edition: Sit back, close your eyes, and let the music guide you to another, more fantastical world!!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Star Wars Soundtrack to Date Oct. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Ultimate Edition CD is absolutely the best star wars music i have ever heard. Finally being able to hear the entire movie score (with a few extra songs!) is a real treat, and i really hope they do the same type of CD for episodes II and III. The best song on the whole soundtrack, in my opinion, is easily "Anakin is Free", with it's combination of various instruments, themes, and just plain gorgeous music. Also, being able to hear the entire battle sequence is great, and the funeral song from the end of the movie is really awesome (if you haven't heard it before without the people talking in the movie, you're really missing out :)).
John Williams has created another keeper with the Episode I score, and I have not, for one moment, regretted buying it. It's worth the money, as you can listen to it over and over and never tire of it, mostly because there's just so much THERE! Either CD is great to listen to anytime, and listening to the whole soundtrack (both CDs) all the way through is a lot of fun :).
The best thing (besides the music itself of course) about this CD is the way that the songs are split up, so if you just want to listen to a piece of a song, it's easy to find, and likely already its own song. However, if listened to straight through, the songs move seamlessly along, with teh exception of songs that are seperated in the movie.
This is definately a CD i recommend to anyone, whether they normally listen to classical music or not, since it's so beautiful and has that movie music quality which makes every note impactful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music, few complaints April 2 2004
By Adam
Format:Audio CD
As with all of the "Star Wars" soundtracks, this score is excellent. And in the case of "The Phantom Menace", at least for me, more enjoyable to listen to than watching the actual movie it's from.
In any case, I would've liked to see the version of "Duel of the Fates" from the other soundtrack on this album as well. Since this is one of the best pieces, it'd be nice to have it on here in a form which isn't broken up the way it is in the movie.
Also, I can't quite figure out why it was decided to differ the way the music was put onto this compilation from the deluxe soundtracks for the first 3 movies. Not that I particularly mind it being arranged exactly as it was in the movie, however I found the organization on the previous deluxe soundtracks somewhat more efficient.
Other than that, the only other thing I'd really want on it is the THX sound effect. It has the 20th Century Fox fanfare, why not the THX as well?
