REVIEW

Jaws 2 (ENGLISH)

Jaws 2 (John Williams). The second part of Jaws counted again with John Williams to compose the music. Williams develops new themes, with an interesting use of the harp, and repeats with the very well-known theme of the first part to describe the ambush of the shark and for that Williams got the Oscar. Specially refreshing are the tracks dedicated to the navigation, as The Menu, More Boating and The Open Sea.

Jaws 2 changes the surprising appearance of the predator into a more wide thriller that shows a tense musical atmosphere with the knowledge that the shark swims nearby and it will not be late in appearing.

The first edition of the soundtrack of Jaws 2 was edited in vinyl by MCA Records in 1978. It was not until 1990 when Varèse Sarabande published the soundtrack in CD format with identical content. In 2015, Intrada releases an edition with the expanded score, several extras, besides the original album remastered.

In addition, the 2015 album includes an extensive booklet with information about the movie, besides the notes of the original album, more centered on Williams' music.

Tiburón 2 (ESPAÑOL)

Tiburón 2 (John Williams). La segunda parte de Tiburón contó de nuevo con John Williams para componer la música. Williams desarrolla nuevos temas, con un interesante uso del arpa, y repite con el archiconocido tema de la primera parte para describir el acecho del tiburón y por el que Williams recibió el Oscar. Especialmente refrescantes son las pistas dedicadas a la navegación, como The Menu, More Boating y The Open Sea.

Tiburón 2 cambia la sorpresiva aparición del depredador por un thriller más amplio en el que se recrea una tensa atmosfera musical a sabiendas de que el tiburón anda cerca y no tardará en aparecer.

La primera edición de la banda sonora de Tiburón 2 fue editada en vinilo por MCA Records en 1978. No fue hasta 1990 cuando Varèse Sarabande publicó la banda sonora en formato CD con idéntico contenido. En 2015, Intrada lanza una edición con el score expandido, varios extras, además del álbum original remasterizado.

Además, la versión de 2015 incluye un libreto extenso, con información sobre la película, además de las notas del álbum original, más centradas sobre la música de Williams.
