Black Rain (ENGLISH)

Black Rain (Hans Zimmer). Too many soundtracks has suffer the situation that the score was not published in the moment of the release of the movie, except probably some tracks at the end of an album of songs released with the movie. And Hans Zimmer is an expert in having suffered this type of injustices.

Black Rain had an album type, of songs, and with a few tracks of the score. Lucky, more than 20 years later the mistake of the unreleased score has been repaired.

And it looks like a good idea what the edition of La La Land of 2012 has done: to recover the original album of songs (considering that they are also a part of the musical setting of the movie) together with the lost score.

Only one objection: though it seems that the score is the same that the one that was circulating along Internet for years, with a view to the editor of the 2012 edition, it must turn out much more attractive to join smaller different tracks to form longer tracks. This is something that we have never liked, because it makes lose the thread of the movie when the music is being listened. There is much more identifiable a theme that begins in a new track that when it appears in the minute 5 of another long cue, and when, really, both themes were composed as separated tracks. Though there are other albums that abuse this resource in more enough irritant form, everything is true. For putting an objection to this good enough edition.

Black Rain (ESPAÑOL)

Black Rain (Hans Zimmer). A más de una banda sonora le ha pasado que el score no se publicó en su día, salvo quizás alguna pista al final de un álbum de canciones que sí llego a ver la luz. Y Hans Zimmer es un experto en haber padecido este tipo de injusticias.

Black Rain tuvo un álbum tipo, de canciones, con un poquito de score al final. Y hasta más de 20 años después no se ha reparado el error de no haber publicado el score completo. Afortunadamente, esto ya se ha subsanado.

Y parece una buena idea lo que la edición de La La Land de 2012 ha hecho: recuperar el álbum de canciones original (ya que al fin y al cabo son también parte de la ambientación musical de la película) junto con el score perdido.

Tan solo una pega: aunque parece que el score es el mismo que el que circulaba por internet desde hace años, de cara al editor del disco debe resultar mucho más atractivo juntar distintas pistas más pequeñas para formar pistas más largas. Esto es algo que nunca nos ha gustado, porque hace perder el hilo de la película cuando se está escuchando su música. Es mucho más identificable un tema que empieza en una pista nueva que cuando aparece en el minuto 5 de otra más larga, y cuando, realmente, ambos temas se compusieron como pistas separada. Aunque hay otros álbumes que abusan de este recurso de forma bastante más irritante, todo es cierto. Por ponerle una pega a esta edición bastante buena.
