REVIEW

Judge Dredd (ENGLISH)

Judge Dredd (Alan Silvestri). What pleasure to listen to the score of a classic and epic adventure, in chronological order, re-living the good story told in Judge Dredd, from the beginning to the end! It is what achieve the listening of disc 1 of the 2015 expanded edition.

Though the director Danny Cannon was claiming that his friend David Arnold was composing the music, his youth and inexperience ballasted his election. In second attempt, the director met Jerry Goldsmith, but he was not available in the time in which they would need his services. Finally, Goldsmith was hired to compose the trailer music, which was released 4 months before the movie premiere, and was Alan Silvestri who finally take the charge to compose the score.

The recording of the score of Judge Dredd was curious: Silvestri recorded great quantity of music in London, and of whose sessions there was extracted the music that was appearing in the 1995 edition. But post-production edits required the composer to do changes and record again most of the music, this time in Los Angeles. Both recordings are included in the compilation of 2015.

Although the music of the original album was only containing 7 tracks of Alan Silvestri's score, these supposed almost 40 minutes, few quantity for the fan of film music, but enough if we bear in mind that are included inside a mixed album of songs and score, a type of compilation that was used many times in the 80s and 90s, and that used to give priority to the songs and introducing barely one or two tracks of the score at the end of the album. But, in spite that the instrumental music was occupying most of the length of the album, it was clearly insufficient hearing the great work that Silvestri did for this movie. Judge Dredd is one of the best Silvestri's scores and we might say that the most spectacular, especially listened directly featured by an orchestra.

The expanded edition of 2015 includes 2 CDs. The first one includes the score as heard in the picture, and the second one adds other versions and 4 tracks from the 1995 album. As special extra content, there is also included the music of the trailer composed by Jerry Goldsmith. A booklet with notes about the production of the film completes this awaited edition.

Juez Dredd (ESPAÑOL)

Juez Dredd (Alan Silvestri). ¡Qué placer escuchar el score de una aventura ya clásica y épica, en orden cronológico, reviviendo la buena historia contada en Juez Dredd, de principio a fin! Eso es lo que consigue el disco 1 de la edición expandida de 2015.

Aunque el director Danny Cannon pretendiera que su amigo David Arnold compusiera la música, su juventud e inexperiencia lastraron su elección. En segunda instancia, el director se reunió con Jerry Goldsmith, pero no estaba disponible en el tiempo en el que necesitarían sus servicios. Finalmente, se contrató a Goldsmith para que musicalizara el tráiler, que salió 4 meses antes que la película, y a Alan Silvestri para que finalmente se encargara del score.

La grabación del score de Juez Dredd fue curiosa: Silvestri grabó gran cantidad de música en Londres, y de cuyas sesiones se extrajo la música que aparecía en la edición de 1995. Pero la edición de post-producción requirió al compositor hacer cambios y volver a grabar mucha de la música, esta vez en Los Angeles. Ambas grabaciones se incluyen en la compilación de 2015.

Aunque la música del álbum original sólo contenía 7 pistas del score de Alan Silvestri, estos suponían casi 40 minutos, poca cantidad para el aficionado a la música de cine, pero bastante si tenemos en cuenta que se engloba dentro un álbum mixto de canciones y score, un tipo de compilación que se utilizaba mucho en las décadas de los 80 y 90, y que solían dar prioridad a las canciones e introducir apenas una o dos pistas del score al final del álbum. Pero a pesar de que la música instrumental ocupaba la mayor parte del metraje del disco, era claramente insuficiente dado el gran trabajo que Silvestri hizo para esta película. Juez Dredd es una de las mejores partituras de Silvestri y podríamos decir que la más espectacular, sobre todo escuchada en directo interpretada por una orquesta.

La edición expandida de 2015 incluye 2 CDs. El primero incluye el score como se escucha en la película, y, el segundo, aporta otras versiones y 4 temas presentes en la banda sonora de 1995. Como extra especial, también se incluye la música del tráiler compuesta por Jerry Goldsmith. Un libreto con notas sobre la producción del film completa esta esperada edición.
