On the soundtrack to Solo: A Star Wars Story, John Powell became just the third person to compose a score for a live-action Star Wars film, following in the footsteps of John Williams and Rogue One's Michael Giacchino. Without the burden of the official episode saga installments, Powell took the liberty to experiment with fresh sounds (for the Star Wars universe), delivering the most intriguing and nontraditional Star Wars music to date. Powell employs non-orchestral instrumentation, exciting and unexpected rhythmic percussion, and a choir to great effect (especially as a motif for the newly introduced band of Marauders). After Williams puts his trademark stamp on the project with a lone contribution ("The Adventures of Han"), Powell launches into hyperspace, adapting Williams' familiar leitmotifs ("Meet Han," "L3 & Millennium Falcon," "Break Out," "Reminiscence Therapy," "Into the Maw," and "Dice & Roll") and injecting each composition with flair. The rousing "Corellia Chase" and "Flying with Chewie" swoop and sweep, but it's not until "Train Heist" that Powell truly claims Solo as his own. Funky and primal, "Train Heist" pumps the coaxium hyperfuel into Solo and doesn't look back. The sole pop track on the album belongs to vocalist Baraka May, whose slinky and sultry "Chicken in the Pot" sounds more like a trip-hop Bond theme than a Star Wars cantina tune. It's one of many surprises that make Solo a fun, exciting, and engaging experience. Tasked with filling Williams' iconic shoes, Powell didn't simply mimic the master -- as in Giacchino's case -- but instead charted his own course, capturing the outlaw spirit of the roguish Han Solo himself in the process.

Album Description

On the soundtrack to Solo: A Star Wars Story, John Powell became just the third person to compose a score for a live-action Star Wars film, following in the footsteps of John Williams and Rogue One's Michael Giacchino. Without the burden of the official episode saga installments, Powell took the liberty to experiment with fresh sounds (for the Star Wars universe), delivering the most intriguing and nontraditional Star Wars music to date. Powell employs non-orchestral instrumentation, exciting and unexpected rhythmic percussion, and a choir to great effect (especially as a motif for the newly introduced band of Marauders). After Williams puts his trademark stamp on the project with a lone contribution ("The Adventures of Han"), Powell launches into hyperspace, adapting Williams' familiar leitmotifs ("Meet Han," "L3 & Millennium Falcon," "Break Out," "Reminiscence Therapy," "Into the Maw," and "Dice & Roll") and injecting each composition with flair. The rousing "Corellia Chase" and "Flying with Chewie" swoop and sweep, but it's not until "Train Heist" that Powell truly claims Solo as his own. Funky and primal, "Train Heist" pumps the coaxium hyperfuel into Solo and doesn't look back. The sole pop track on the album belongs to vocalist Baraka May, whose slinky and sultry "Chicken in the Pot" sounds more like a trip-hop Bond theme than a Star Wars cantina tune. It's one of many surprises that make Solo a fun, exciting, and engaging experience. Tasked with filling Williams' iconic shoes, Powell didn't simply mimic the master -- as in Giacchino's case -- but instead charted his own course, capturing the outlaw spirit of the roguish Han Solo himself in the process.

Queen: A Balanced Band

The film “Bohemian Rhapsody”, which was screening in cinemas in October 2018, is a reminder of what Freddie Mercury would always say: Queen isn’t just about him, it’s about a band of four exceptional individuals. This is exactly what Brian May and Roger Taylor (without John Deacon, who retired) have been trying to demonstrate since the death of their flamboyant singer on November 21, 1991.

Daft Punk, Curtain Call

Eight years after Random Access Memories transcended the artistic concept that had begun with Homework eighteen years earlier, Daft Punk have brought things to a halt. It is as if to say that no further reinvention was possible after their last album, which was the culmination of a career that paid tribute to the pop culture of the 1970s and 1980s.

Tim Burton in 10 Albums

Through feature-length and animated films, Tim Burton has created a fascinating world of cinema over the last thirty years where poetic wonders meet gothic aesthetic and macabre humor. With few exceptions, he worked on most of his films with a specific composer, Danny Elfman. Without Burton’s images, Elfman’s music would not feel the same, and vice-versa. In 2019, the two artists proved this one more time with their last collaboration: the deeply moving "Dumbo".
