We can but hope. It does feel as though the CD misses many important aspects of the score as they appear in the film. Much of this may be re-appropriation of themes from previous films, but none the less are important in terms of the score. To wit; Duel of the Fates and the like.

I'm also curious as to why the current album is presented with the tracks out of chronological order. I realise that the main "new" theme from each of the PT movies (Duel, Stars and Battle) occur early on in each album, but would it have been so difficult to line up the remaining tracks in movie order ?

I'm also disappointed that the opening music has been edited. After the opening crawl and the drop to tracking the two jedi, the war drums present in the film have been edited out - shame really, thought the movie score at this point was superb.

This isn't to say that I'm dissapointed in the single CD ROTS OST that we have at the moment, just that (like Clones) a two disc edition with a fuller representation of the score is sorely needed.

John Williams writes in a style called leitmotif(Music written in themes to show characters or events). Duel of the Fates was most likely reinserted as a symbol for the greatest battle in history. The Duel of the Fates cue was probably omitted because it had been heard before. If you want to hear "Duel of the Fates", get Episode I. The part in ROTS was the middle section.

True, although a reworked version of DotF also surfaced in AOTC (Anakin riding the speeder en route to rescuing his mother) and, from memory, the cue did surface on the CD. I do have the TPM 1CD already, and a work of beauty it is!

The impression I'm getting so far from the ROTS OST discussions is that a 2CD edition is badly wanted; most of the issues people are having with the single CD issue would hopefully be addressed. Things like missing cues (for whatever reason they have been dropped), heavily curtailed cues (opening track) and the like.

Now for another spin in the CD player...

Cheers,

Bren
