The soundtrack had a good reception with the fans and critics worldwide. Rob Theakston of AllMusic stated about the soundtrack:
"Revenge of the Sith holds a place on the mantle with some of the classic scores that made Williams a legendary film composer. It's also a fine closing masterpiece to a series of movies filled with some of the most important musical moments in modern cinematic history."
Danny Graydon of British film magazine Empire called it
"a triumphant climax to a modern music masterpiece."
Another famous critic said about William’s work:
"The operatic finale of this score emboldens the tragic, doom-laden atmosphere of the saga’s pivotal moment, yet is typically brisk and exciting, deftly utilizing themes from the entire series."
On a less enthusiastic note, film music scholar Royal Brown said about the Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack the following:
"By the time we get to Revenge of the Sith it's not as fresh as it was. Not because Williams is doing anything wrong, but because he's pretty much locked into a particular requirement for this particular kind of movie."
On the same note, Filmtracks.com stated that:
"compared to its peers, Revenge of the Sith is, despite its great strengths in its individual cues of immense melodrama, the weakest of the six scores when compared amongst each other."
