John Williams is amazing. What would my life be like without Hedwig's Theme? Much worse, that's for sure. ;)

Love the original trilogy, love the music. Hate the prequels, love the music from them even more.

I really did enjoy this movie, but something seems rather off after listening to the soundtrack.
Even if it's composed by the legend himself, it's just not as compelling...

As a musician, my 2nd viewing at the cinema was more a listening experience than a visual one, and now ive had the chance to play at home, there is some utterly beeautiful moments in this soundtrack, and some slighty irratating overly brassy ones....but, i forgive him for those purely for the good parts. 2nd part of Scavenger and Rey's theme are lush, almost like a scifi western vibe if that makes sense.
