Have you ever heard any other film music which is not from John Williams? I dont remember that John Williams have ever wrote any action music. For example: There is Jerry Goldsmith's TOLTAL RECALL, AIR FORCE ONE, MULAN, SMALL SOLDIERS, THE 13TH WARRIOR, James Horner's PATRIOT GAMES, CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER, Hans Zimmer's THE ROCK, CRIMSON TIDE, GLADIATOR, MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE 2, THE PEACMAKER, BROKEN ARROW, BACKDRAFT. What is the difference betwen this pictures? Nothing, because these pictures have very great ACTION! musics. I have to warn you that STAR WARS is a sci-fi, not an action film.
I don't want to argue you, I only want to understand why the other composers are neglected? Just count how many films is on Goldsmith's and Morricone's list. P.S.: I agree whit you that Williams had writen very good themes so far, I like his JURASSIC PRAK theme. But listen THE ROCK main theme, which you can hear in track 1, on the CD. SPEED and ENEMY OF THE STATE has also good themes. Which means Williams is not the only one.
