I totally agree with your comments about Williams score, Phantom is one of my favorites that he has done. It is a fantastic piece of musical work. And the podrace is pretty awesome too.
The podrace would
have been awesome, but for me, honestly, that two-headed announcer absolutely ruined it. It hate Greg Proops. The score is first rate, though.
