If you liked the film, you must own the soundtrack


Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980.) The soundtrack to the film, composed by John Williams.

In 1977, George Lucas took the world by storm with A New Hope, the first film in the Star Wars series. The film became known as a science fiction masterpiece in a relatively short period of time, and his spawned numerous sequels and prequels alike. One of the driving forces behind the films, in addition to excellent acting and (what were then) state-of-the-art special effects, the films featured an excellent musical score, composed by John Williams. When John Williams does the score for a movie, he very rarely fails to please with his compositions. Read on for my review of the soundtrack to Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980.)

To put it in the simplest terms possible, if you're a fan of the Star Wars movies, the soundtracks are an essential purchase. When the soundtracks were rereleased on CD in 1997 and again in 2004, the tracklists were upgraded over the original vinyl versions. Each of the soundtracks from the classic trilogy (A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return Of The Jedi) is now a dual-disc set, which features every piece of music from the entire film it represents, from start to finish. Hell, they've even got the Twentieth Century Fox Fanfare intro! Each soundtrack has the complete musical score from its respective film, in the order each piece appeared in the film. Furthermore, each soundtrack adds an alternate version bonus track. Even further adding to the greatness is that many of the pieces of music are the full-length complete versions. Because of this, you get the complete piece of music, meaning you'll even hear portions of some pieces that didn't even appear in the films (because the versions in the films were cut short in some cases.) My lone complaint is that some songs that should have been divided into separate tracks weren't (for instance, on each soundtrack, the opening theme fades right into the first unique piece of music to each film, and it's ALL ONE TRACK, meaning you can't skip right past the inro to the first unique piece of music. On the flip side, the end credits are directly connected to the LAST unique piece of music from each film, meaning you can't skip directly to the end credit theme (and this is sure to disappoint some listeners.)) Despite that little flaw, these are still great soundtracks. Every piece of music on here is excellent, proving John Williams to be one of the greatest composers who ever lived. The soundtracks not only show off his musical ability, but also his diversity musically. To put it simply, if you liked the movies, the soundtracks are an essential buy.

The soundtracks got rereleased in 2004, obviously to cash in on the rerelease of the classic trilogy of films on DVD. In addition to remastering the sound and revamping the cover art of the soundtrack CDs, the record company gives an alternative option - a box set of all three soundtracks from the classic trilogy. If you purchase the box set, you'll save a few bucks, so I recommend getting it rather than buying them separately.

If you liked the classic Star Wars Trilogy (and honestly, who didn't?), the soundtracks are well worth adding to your CD collection. Whenever John Williams does the music for a film, his score NEVER fails to please - and his abilities aren't limited to just the Star Wars series. I also strongly recommend the soundtracks to any other films he has scored. For all you classic Star Wars fans - the soundtracks are essential purchases.

'Space Oddity' and 'Cygnet Committee' carry this album


I am rating this a 5 because of Space Oddity and Cygnet Committee. All the other songs are good, but nothing compared to these two songs which equal perfection. Space Oddity speaks for itself, but few know about Cygnet Committee. Cygnet is a touching mind blowing song that can never be listened to too many times. Bowie puts his heart and soul into this song screaming out thet lyrics as if he is pleading for his life. His final words in the song, "I want to live" said about 20 times in a row makes one feel moved once this 10 minute song is complete. It is an absolute masterpiece.
