Comments about the soundtrack for Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (John Williams)

Hardly 'over the top', considering.

It's obviously not rare for composers to sometimes repeat themselves in their music, and let's not forget that John Williams has been composing for a while now. The love theme for Han Solo and Leia is doubtless powerful and effective, but it doesn't have the sweeping embrace that 'Across the Stars' has - of course that is all a matter of taste, plus the recording of 'Across the Stars' was bound to be crisper. But the five and a half minutes that it represents sums up, to me, all the Star Wars movies are about - emotion, sweeping theatrics, rolling harp strings, and pounding brass. Top notch, and difficult to beat. Obviously it may be considered 'over the top' - but this is Star Wars we're talking about, man! It's supposed to be over the top.
