    Doesn't this exact poll already exist?

    Edit: Oh I see you've added more recent titles. Shadows of the Empire OST is still the best. Mandalorian OST is my favourite of the new lot.

    The Clone Wars is my easy #1.

    Torn between Rebels and Mandalorian for #2. Rebels has the awesome Sabine theme, but had a very bad case of Williams Shoehorn syndrome, especially early on. Mandalorian is much original and has a memorable main theme but most of the in-episode stuff has yet to click.

    Going with Rebels for now.

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, by Michael Giacchino had to be it for me especially with such theme's as Your Father Would Be Proud.

    Rogue 1 is the best, and Solo and The Mandalorian round out my top 3. I find the rest to be forgettable.

    1. The Clone Wars - the main theme alone is simply unforgettable, and there a several more memorable bits throughout the series, which range on riffs of JW to completely original pieces composed by Kiner (Maul, Savage, and Vizsla is the standout piece!)
    2. Rogue One - Sounds so much like JW it's insane. It is consistently better than Solo, but Solo's high points are higher
    3. Solo - John Williams gave us an amazing gift with the new Han theme, and then to hear Duel of the Fates again! Chill-inducing!
    4. Rebels - Just because it's 4th, doesn't mean it sucks. It's very good and very cohesive. Obviously similar in tone to TCW, but with less originality
    5. The Mandalorian - A very distinctive main theme and a good western vibe, but it doesn't feel like Star Wars at all

    Rebels is my favorite so far. Mandalorian and Rogue one are very close runner ups. Also shout out to Gordy Haab for Battlefront 2.

    Rebels is just so well developed with OT and PT quotes, reimaginations and original music. Most characters have their own leitmotifs that are memorable.
    one of my favorites is Saw Gererra's theme. Very noir, something you don't get a lot of in Star Wars.



    militaristic version in this clip. One of the greater scenes of the overall canon IMO.

    Yeah, and there's plenty of it. This is another interesting track, I can't help but compare it to the Manadlorian's leitmotif. Particularly considering it refers to other Mandalorian characters. Both are strikingly similar, probably inspired by the same source.

    Rogue One, I’ve been hoping since it released that Giachinno would do more Star Wars.

    Rogue One only for his OST called 'Hope"


    Truly amazing i can't stop listenning to this music.
    One of my favorite Star Wars track.
    The vocal parts remind me of "Duel of the Fates" and "Battle of the Heroes." And the instruments in some part sounded like the "Imperial March" OST and one of New Hope OST: " The Hologram of the binary sunset".

    Hope is a choral Imperial March, actually!

    The Mandalorian by a wide margin. It has a great mood to it and I love the combination of Western, futuristic/scifi, and traditional score. Much as I love the John Williams themes I'm a little burned out on them, so I love getting something completely different, rather than variations on the same themes we've been using for decades.

    I will say two things about the Mando scores. 1, the season two music has been better than season one. 2, the main theme has grown on me and I do like it more.

    Rebels features some truly spine-tinglingly memorable themes, followed by Solo and The Clone Wars (especially the final arc).

    I like The Mandalorian score and how minimalist it is.
