I have to agree with you, not the first guy. The review is pretty well done and respectable. But I don't like how the reviewer seemed to hate the last statement of the Force Theme in the "New Hope" track, I really like its usage there. But that's his opinion. I also notice that everybody gives Williams a lot of crud for the Sith score and how it doesn't have lots of expanded motifs. This is a good point, but another thing is that Attack of the Clones didn't have this either, and Filmtracks gave it five stars. Of course, that might have been a different reviewer.

Another thing is that the reviewer says how Williams composed "Battle of the Heroes" first, like he did with "Duel of the Fates." Good, good. But then the reviewer starts to talk bad about the theme because it doesn't appear till the end of the movie. Neither does Duel of the Fates! Am I the only one who notices this?! Plus, with the Heroes theme, Williams didn't cut and paste nearly as much as he did with Fates. Well, actually, that was Lucas' fault, but still, the two seemed to have learned their lesson.

But that's just the reviewer's opinion.
