That's the same theme as in the commercial, just choral vs brass.  I can't wait for the soundtrack :)

There are two reviews up over at MF.com, one from the site admin, and the other from a totally legit poster. There's also discussion going on filmscoremonthly.com. Everything reported so far is positive.

My money is on the tracks to leak by the end of the weekend.

It'll take some time for me to digest it all, but on first listen it sounds solid - I'm pleased. The whole album has a sense of tragedy and an epic scale, with “Battle of the Heroes" being the best example. The score sounds a lot more structured and well thought out than the first two PT scores did when I first heard them.

I like all the quotations from the other 5, too. It seems to go a long way towards bridging the two trilogies.

Well, due to my slow-ass dialup connection (minimally) and my desire to have my first experience of the tracks as a whole be something aside from an MP3 file (mostly), I downloaded the Main Title/Battle of Coruscant and Battle of the Heroes MP3s to at least get a taste for how things are going.

In short, I am very happy.  VERY happy.  VERY VERY HAPPY.  We need a dancing smiley so it can convey how happy I am with the two tracks I heard.

Of course, this will all be moot when Burtt deletes half of the CD's included music from the film during the sound mix so he can use that AWESOME sound effect of his neighbor's knee creaking as a background door shutting, but at least we'll have the CD.
