Part one of the long Review of Star Wars Ep 3 CD.
I figured it would be fun to review each track in the review style as I hear it. Enjoy.
Track 1 Main Titles/Revenge of the Sith
This one opens with the normal Star Wars Fanfare. After all these years, it still sounds great. I love this theme so much. However, on the CD, it doesn’t have the normal fade to the actual score. Usually, the main theme fades to the beginning music for the film. This score changes it with a quick jump into action music and we hear the Force theme in a military style. The snare drums in the first few minutes brings that military theme to mind
Quickly, the score changes to huge base drums thumping through the music. This is when the actual music from the CD is used in the opening scene. You hear this music when the rockets are fired at our two Jedi heroes.
You see this is part of the problem of the CD; some of the score heard here isn’t used in the film in the correct spot listed. The opening portion of the music after the main theme is different than what is used in the film. The film opens up with the usual fade out of the main fan fare, and smoothly going into the score just like the rest of the movies. The music used at the beginning has a very loud drum cue as we see the Jedi Fighters pass over and under capital ships into a grand space battle. This is a much smoother cue than what is on CD.
