REVIEW

Edward Scissorhands (ENGLISH)

Edward Scissorhands (Danny Elfman). A magnificent score of the initially questioned Danny Elfman for scoring one of the most innocent characters of the film history, and, in spite of it, interesting, turned into an indispensable classic of the film music, and that would definitively mark the stamp that Danny Elfman began to impress on Tim Burton's movies a few years before with the soundtracks of Pee-wee's Big Adventure, Beetlejuice and Batman.

The original album was edited together with the movie in 1990, and there was containing 16 tracks of Elfman's score and the song With These Hands, performed by Tom Jones. In 2011, the extensive box for the 25th anniversary of the Elfman-Burton collaboration included, among other albums, the soundtrack of Edward Scissorhands excepting Tom Jones's song, besides 11 extra tracks including demo tracks.

In 2015, Intrada re-edits the soundtrack with 28 tracks. The album begins with the same theme than the previous ones, Introduction (Titles), but this time the track includes the music of the logo, just a few seconds, but very important seconds, due that they locate the spectator in the story. In addition, it includes Jones's song and an extensive booklet, in a well-deserved edition for one of the most emblematic works of Danny Elfman.

Eduardo Manostijeras (ESPAÑOL)

Eduardo Manostijeras (Danny Elfman). Una magnífica partitura del inicialmente cuestionado Danny Elfman para musicalizar a uno de los personajes más inocentes del cine, y, a pesar de ello, interesante, se convirtió en un clásico imprescindible de la música de cine, y marcaría definitivamente el sello que Danny Elfman comenzó a imprimir en las películas de Tim Burton unos años antes con las bandas sonoras de La Gran Aventura de Pee-wee, Beetlejuice y Batman.

El álbum original se editó junto con la película en 1990, y contenía 16 pistas del score de Elfman y la canción With These Hands interpretada por Tom Jones. En 2011, la extensa caja por el 25 aniversario de la colaboración Elfman-Burton incluyó, entre otros álbumes, la banda sonora de Eduardo Manostijearas exceptuando la canción de Tom Jones, además de 11 pistas extra incluyendo pistas demo.

En 2015, Intrada reedita la banda sonora con 28 pistas. El álbum comienza con el mismo tema que los anteriores, Introduction (Titles), pero esta vez la pista incluye la música del logo, apenas unos segundos, pero muy importantes, dado que ubican al espectador en la historia. Además, incluye la canción de Jones y un extenso libreto, en una merecida edición para una de las obras más emblemáticas de Danny Elfman.
