REVIEW

Cocoon: The Return (ENGLISH)

Cocoon: The Return (James Horner). The soundtrack of Cocoon: The Return reuses themes that James Horner developed for the first movie, including jazz themes that narrate the "adventures" of the elders protagonists on their return to Earth and that, being known themes from the previous film, the spectator waits for their appearance in the movie and, when this happens (as in Taking Bernie To The Beach and Bascketball Swing), they are enjoyed even more. Apart from this, the overall tone of the score, as in the first film, is still friendly, with perhaps a little more charge of suspense. Special mention deserves the theme from Cocoon developed in acoustic guitar that Horner performed on tracks Joe's Gift and The Ascension.

The extra amount of music of the 2016 deluxe edition opposite to the original 1988 edition rises to 18 minutes, expanding the soundtrack up to a generous 71 minutes.

Cocoon: El Regreso (ESPAÑOL)

Cocoon: El Regreso (James Horner). La banda sonora de Cocoon: El Regreso reutiliza los temas que James Horner desarrolló para la primera parte, incluidas las temáticas jazzísticas que narran las "aventuras" de los ancianos protagonistas en su regreso a la Tierra y que, al ser conocidas del film anterior, se espera su aparición en la película y, cuando esto sucede (como en Taking Bernie To The Beach y Bascketball Swing), se disfrutan aún más. Aparte de esto, el tono general del score, como en la primera película, sigue siendo amable, aunque con un poco más de carga suspensiva. Especial mención merece la versión del tema de Cocoon en guitarra acústica que Horner realiza en las pistas Joe's Gift y The Ascension.

La cantidad extra de música de la edición deluxe de 2016 respecto a la edición original de 1988 es de 18 minutos, expandiendo la banda sonora hasta unos generosos 71 minutos.
