He's right... partly at least. Its a solid score in itself, and a decent effort from Williams. BUT compared to the three original scores, this is no worthy Star Wars-Soundtrack. Williams made a very good score for Episode I (one of the few bright spots in this disappointing movie) which structure was not different from the original scores: He revisited some of the old themes while inventing new ones for the Sith, the Trade Federation and for Anakin. 'Attack of the clones' fails to incoporate most themes (old or new) into the new material. 'Duel of the Fates' and the Federation-theme were only heard once for example. While there is a beautiful love theme and some interestingly dark underscore and action material it leaves me out in the cold most of the time. The best part of the score are Tracks 12 and 13... 20 Minutes of great Orchestral Music.
The most unforgivable aspect of the music heard in the film is the fact that Williams re-used Minutes and Minutes of the Score from Episode I for the final battle sequence. 'The Arena' heard on the CD was also not used.
Why didn't he wrote any new material for this scene? Whyyyy?

This fact alone makes Ep.II the worst entry into the Star Wars-Saga in Terms of Music.

Music as heard on CD: *** (some tracks deserve a ****-Rating though)
Music as heard in the Film: **
