Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack] [The Ultim

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Eric Lowenhar
When The Phantom Menace was originally released in 1999, fans of Star Wars and scoring king John Williams were given a single disc soundtrack containing less than half the music in the movie. A huge outcry followed because the album lacked so many of the film's key musical elements, including the music to the major battle scenes. Finally, Sony Classical has made things right with the release of The Phantom Menace Ultimate Edition, a two-disc set containing every note of Williams's magnificent score, from the opening "Fox Fanfare" to the last end credit, presented in the film's original running order. The London Symphony has never sounded finer, playing the quiet parts ...

The London Symphony has never sounded finer, playing the quiet parts with delicacy and finesse while attacking the upbeat pieces with vigor and style. On some tracks -- such as "Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan and Darth Maul Continue Battle" -- a choir heightens the overall experience, adding a fresh element not present in most of Williams' other works. The scope and depth of the work, from the intensity of the music during action scenes to the gentle passages of elegance and beauty, showcase Williams's brilliance as a composer and conductor. This edition of The Phantom Menace is further enhanced with a 60-page booklet containing a sequential series of scene photos from the movie. The set ends with a bonus track, a dialogue version of "Duel of the Fates." Although the film took some knocks, its score stands alone as a modern orchestral masterpiece that shouldn't be missed.

    Music of the Century. Absolutely Wonderful!

    This CD is by far the most elaborate of its time. The case itself is totally original, with a holographic image of Darth Maul. Contained within is a booklet loaded with coloured photos. A photo, basically, for each track! The CD art is wonderful, featuring images of Queen Amidala, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Qui-Gon Jinn. As for the music. . . well what more can be said. It's truly mesmerizing. Aside from the price, it's a flawless item. DujHoD, one must not complain when such a masterpiece has arisen. Highly recommended! Well done again, Sir Williams.

    Lives up to the score of the original movies

    The movie may not have lived up to the expectations of every Star Wars fan, but this score should.

    Excellent music, but inconventient casing

    Without a doubt, John Williams (along with James Horner) is simply the best soundtrack composer of our time. The music in this album is beautiful and complex, with terrific melodies and instrumentation. I find I am always singing along with the music by the time I reach the end of the second disc.</p><p> This album is quite long for a soundtrack, even for an unabridged soundtrack. It consists of two discs for a total of over two hours of music. The lengths of the songs range from under twenty seconds to over seven minutes. The tracks in the album are arranged into sections of one to eight tracks each. Each of these sections can be considered a piece, as there are no breaks within a section. Although this may be an unusual way to organize a soundtrack, I find it very effective. Besides the sixty-six tracks that were in the film, the album includes two tracks that were not: ''Desert Winds,'' a not-particularly-noteworthy ''bonus track,'' and ''Duel of the Fates,'' a version of part of the end credits with dialogue from the film dubbed in.</p><p> Although the music of this album is wonderful, the packaging is not. The discs are contained in a trifold case. The left side contains a booklet including the track list and images from the film; the other two hold the discs. The booklet, however, does not stay open on its own, and it is the only place on the case with a complete track listing, so one must open up the booklet whenever one wants to know the title of a track. The discs themselves are difficult to extract from the case without using one's fingernails. I also find the cover art rather silly, but I'm no graphic artist.</p><p> This album is a wonderful assembly of music, and I would encourage it for anyone who like soundtracks, Star Wars fan or not.

    One of Mr. William's Best!

    This is one of the the best soundtracks that I own. I would encourage you to purchase this double cd set if you are a fan of Star Wars or if you're just a fan of great music. Let's hope Episode 2's music is just as good or better!

    Amazing!

    This set contains some really outstanding music. The best track is probably the dialogue version of the Duel of the Fates. It alone is reason enough to buy this soundtrack. I was able to listen to a lot music that I didn't even notice was there when I watched the film, as well as some more famous musical numbers from the motion picture. This is very highly recommended!

    Another hit

    John Williams gives you another hit. I enjoyed this because of the sound of the music, the beats played. This truly is John Williams best. Duel of the Fates has never been better. I reccomend this to anyone.
