Read the old answers before you post, you morons!!   Friday, May 24, 2002 (9:30 p.m.) 

Will all of you people PLEASE read through the posts on this page before putting up questions that have already been hashed and rehashed several times??

YES, the love theme sounds similar to Hook

YES, the music from the arena battle was lifted directly from TPM

YES, the main title is the same recording as TPM

The bonus track is found on CD's sold ONLY at Target Stores in the United States. It is "On the Conveyor Belt".

Has everyone run out of original things to say about Attack of the Clones?

Maybe that's the point. Maybe the score is so lame, that these are the only subjects people can come up with. If that is true, we can truly know that the master had failed us.
I mean, I love the score, I love the love theme (I can't find any resemblance to "Hook", but that's maybe due to the lack of any musical education) and I love the little addition he put at the end of the imperial march, at various places it appears. But that's it. It's not mind-blowing, it's not epic. Heck, it's usually not even Star Wars. John Williams wasn't a great composer. Great doesn't even begin to describe his greatness. But, in the late 90's, he lost his touch. His scores are still good, but are there really "Must have" scores of him from that time? I don't think so. I'd like to think it's the pressure, but maybe tis' just old age.

BTW, this subject had also been rehashed, but I have nothing else to write about

For a fact, the "fact" you've gotten at in your comment where you surmise whether or not scores by John Williams are still a "must have" is at least questionable and thus the kind of a fact that no one has the RIGHT to arbitrate on behalf of others. If you would next leave it to each and every fan to decide if the CDs they're listening to are still a "must have" for them.

That's the only thing that angered me in your post.

Idan asked: "Are they [meaning Williams' recent scores] really 'Must have' scores?" He answered that question (for himself!) with: "I don't think so." Note: He does not think so.

How come you think Idan doesn't--as you say--"leave it to each and every fan to decide if the CDs they're listening to are still a 'must have' for them"? He does leave it to each and every fan. He just gave us his individual answer to the initial question.

No reason to be angered! (I'd answer his question differently, too!)

Ok, Roman, got your point. However, I DO believe that there is a consensus that some of Williams' scores - Like ESB, Hook, Schindler's list and a few more - are a "Must have" for every true Williams' fan. I don't know of any that were written in the latter half of the 90's, nor have anyone mentioned one on other posts in this forum.
What recent scores of his would you categorize as a "must have"?
I'm not being rhetorical, I just want to enhance my music library.

Hi Idan!
Affected by my penchant for sorrowful, solemn and dramatic classical works, nineties added at least 4 outstanding masterpieces to my collection of film music: "Far and Away", "Schindler's List", "Seven Years in Tibet" and "Angela's Ashes".
And if you add "Jane Eyre", "E.T.", "Star Wars", "Saving private Ryan", "Superman" and "Hook", you get perhaps 10 most representative scores composed by John Williams, as I would single out above all else.

That's right, and in my opinion Jurassic Park is certainly a must have too. And, actually, Williams concert works (e.g. for the olympics)!
