You know, in listening to this great score, I'm wondering if there's going to be an expanded version out soon. I get the indication that a lot of the thematic material is missing from this. I mean, we get a lot of Force music here, but very little (relatively speaking) Imperial March and one brief obvious statement of the Emperor's Theme, which is odd considering the nature of the film. I suppose that's the crux of this and other reviews out there. The score's not bad; the score doesn't give fans what many may expect: the big time themes. Although we'll have to wait for the film to judge, I think there has to be more thematic music that William's excluded because he wants to showcase new music rather than rehash the themes again.
