Inhalt: As an album, this 77-minute masterpiece fits right at home with the soundtracks to The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi but reinstates so many leitmotifs from the Original Trilogy that you sometimes feel like you're listening to the wrong soundtrack. It repeats a lot of the themes from the new trilogy, particularly "Rey's Theme," "Kylo Ren's Fanfare," and "March of the Resistance." Sadly, my favorite theme from the new trilogy ("Rose Tico's Theme") is barely present. At times, the Rise of Skywalker plays like the set list to a John Williams Star Wars themed "All the Hits" Las Vegas Residency. "Luke's Theme" is always a given, but the "Empire March" triumphantly returns and gets a lot of attention, as does "The Emperor's Theme." You'll also find "Leia's Theme" in a few places, which is my favorite Original Trilogy theme. A track towards the end of the album called "Reunion" plays like a sampling of many uplifting themes from the saga, a buffet of favorites across the nine-part saga, primarily focused on the Original and Sequel Trilogy. A handful of new themes are present and are best heard on tracks called "The Rise of Skywalker," "The Speeder Chase," "We Go Together," "Farewell," and "A New Home." Most of the new themes remind me more of John Williams' work on the first three Harry Potter films than his Star Wars work. The exception is "The Speeder Chase," which calls to mind his Indiana Jones scores. The one that feels most at home amongst the Star Wars themes is "Farewell." Closing the final Star Wars saga soundtrack by John Williams is a track familiarly titled "Finale." This 10-minute magnum opus starts with the iconic Star Wars theme and leads into a beautiful arrangement of themes from the saga, including the new ones and classics that forever tug at your heartstrings. It all fittingly ends the way it all began. If you stuck a blaster to my head and made me pick my favorite soundtrack from the Sequel Trilogy, I'd say The Last Jedi is still my favorite of the three auditory experiences. But The Rise
