Comments about the soundtrack for Star Wars: A New Hope (John Williams)

Edit | Delete
Most overrated score of all time!

I think John Williams writes solid memorable and exciting themes but his scores are more of an afterthought and are not that listenable. His writing style has an upbeat and sacharine quality to it which is detrimental and works against him.
To me Jerry Goldsmith and Bernard Herrmann are the true greatest composers of all time. They excelled at not only writing great themes but pioneered all sorts of scoring techniques. Star Wars is remarkable for only the themes and nothing else.
