REVIEW

Days of Thunder (ENGLISH)

Days of Thunder (Hans Zimmer). Days of Thunder is another score affected by the virus Zimmer'80-90, which concerned many of the scores of the best Zimmer in the 80s and 90s, leaving orphans of music to many of his fans.

In his time, Zimmer was almost an unknown composer, but having already done things so big as Rain Man or Black Rain (that, by chance, also suffered this virus), and has not been but the 21st century the one that has had the decency of looking back and releasing works as this one, of which so many fans have turn forced to search carefully for references for the entrails of Internet due to the nonexistence of an official album.

And there was such the virulence of this virus that there was not even a sad track for Zimmer in the album of songs that was released accompanying to the movie. Major sin when in the two predecessor albums before mentioned were containing some score tracks, and it is not possible to invoke either that the music of Days of Thunder was bad or was not at the level of the expectations...

Both Tom Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer were anxious to work with Zimmer after listening to his works for Rain Man (with that he obtained an Oscar nomination) and Black Rain (directed by Ridley Scott, the brother of the director of Days of Thunder, Tony Scott). But it seems that they were not so anxious of recording adventures like to publish the score... How has changed the panorama!

Días de Trueno (ESPAÑOL)

Días de Trueno (Hans Zimmer). Días de Trueno es otra más de las bandas sonoras pertenecientes a la larga lista de bandas sonoras afectadas por el virus Zimmer'80-90, el cual afectó a muchas de las partituras del mejor Zimmer en los años 80 y 90, dejando huérfanos de música a muchos de sus aficionados.

En su momento casi desconocido, pero habiendo hecho cosas ya tan grandes como Rain Man o Black Rain (que casualmente también sufrieron este virus), no ha sido sino el siglo XXI el que ha tenido la decencia de mirar atrás y publicar trabajos como éste, del cual tantos y tantos aficionados se han visto obligados a rebuscar referencias por las entrañas de la red dada la inexistencia de un álbum oficial.

Y era tal la virulencia de este virus que ni siquiera hubo una triste pista para Zimmer en el álbum de canciones que salió a la venta acompañando a la película. Pecado mayor cuando en los 2 álbumes predecesores antes mencionados sí que existían, y no se puede alegar tampoco que la música de Días de Trueno fuera mala o no estuviera a la altura de las expectativas...

Tanto Tom Cruise como el productor Jerry Bruckheimer estaban ansiosos de trabajar con Zimmer tras escuchar sus trabajos para Rain Man (con la que obtuvo una nominación a los Oscar) y Black Rain (dirigida por Ridley Scott, el hermano del director de Días de Trueno, Tony Scott). Pero parece que no estaban tan ansiosos de aventuras discográficas como para publicar el score... ¡Cómo ha cambiado el panorama!
