Innersight - Light of the Force

It's Star Wars Day again, and I managed to find some really cool music to share with you today.  Actually, I came across it last year, but there was a problem downloading the files from the site, so I've been waiting for almost a year to write about it.

I don't know much about Innersight, but what I do know (and what matters most today) is that a few years ago, they released an excellent album of guitar-based Star Wars music called Light of the Force.  There are seven tracks on the album, with each movie being represented by at least one track (Episode IV - A New Hope is the only movie with two tracks).  Most of the songs have a heavy metal feeling to them, which works amazingly well for songs like "Duel of the Fates" and "The Imperial March", which have always been quite heavy and intense on their own.  "Across the Stars" is mostly mellow and jazzy, and "Palpatine's Teachings" is darker and more atmospheric than the rest.  "Emperor's Throne Room" is a real highlight - if Black Sabbath had scored Return of the Jedi, it might have ended up sounding a bit like this.

The entire album clocks in at less than half an hour, but it is definitely worth a listen for Star Wars fans - especially those who also happen to like instrumental guitar music.  Happy listening, and may the Fourth be with you!

All these funny days we have to 'celebrate'! I had no idea what day it really was until I saw a tweet from pbs kids to a Sesame Street clip of R2D2 and C3PO. Happy Star Wars Day-- a little late! ☺
