Star Wars creator/producer George Lucas followed up his ambitious, if widely panned trilogy prequel with a distinctly less ambitious extension of the saga, a largely Japanimation-inspired feature that essentially bridges an earlier animated series with its new Cartoon Network incarnation. And while SW purists are likely still debating the project’s narrative and design merits somewhere in cyberspace, TV veteran Kevin Kiner’s musical score deserves credit for not only interpolating a few of John Williams’ evergreen themes in fresh new ways, but infusing their Hollywood Golden Age swashbuckling sensibilities with some refreshing contemporary flourishes. Kiner infuses his orchestral score with dollops of driving rock and organic, ethnic modalities that parallel Bear McCreary’s innovative work on the new Battlestar Galactica, some feverish percussion and synth landscapes, and even brief flourishes of ‘50s jazz. However mixed the blessings of Lucas’ Star Wars empire have become in recent years, its music remains arguably its most consistently rewarding element.
Different, in a Good Way
While this is really nothing like any other Star Wars score you've ever heard, it's still a great listen. It has lots of different musical influences and styles that should help set the mood of the film very well (I'll know that better once I see the film). Some tracks reminded me of the Unreal Tournament music in some ways (which to me is good).
SICK, SICK, AND SICK!!!
This album is like a remix and its KOOL!!! Im a huge star wars fan!! EVERYONE GO SEE THE NEW MOVIE!!
Buy it... OR Avoid it...
Buy it... only if you've heard Kevin Kiner's distinctly youthful re-interpretation of the franchise in the film itself and appreciated the rocking electric guitars and other traditionally "non-Star Wars" sounds in context. Avoid it... if you expect to hear anything remotely respectful to John Williams' famous music for the franchise, for the adaptation of his themes and styles is extremely minimal. Unlike with Joel McNeely's take on the Star Wars universe for the 1996 multimedia products of Shadows of the Empire remaining perhaps the most superior work of that composer's career. There is a significant difference between McNeely's faithful adaptation of Williams' sound and what Kiner has done for The Clone Wars, though. In fact, for quite literally 97% of the music contained on the 67-minute album release for The Clone Wars
