REVIEW

Krull (ENGLISH)

Krull (James Horner). Several editions were edited in vinyl format in 1983 under labels from different countries, and they all did with identical content (6 tracks). The first edition in CD format was released in 1987 by Southern Cross, and, since then, the fact that the soundtrack album has been released four times in 23 years is indicative that this soundtrack has something special. And, in spite of the low level of the drama of the story, with a few wicked and immature antagonists, and with improvable special effects in spite of the early epoch of production of the movie concerning to technical improvements, Krull is an adventure which epic aspect is reflected in the music, and the Horner from the 80s is the best composer who could give sheen to a score of classic adventure. Examples of it, besides Krull, were Battle Beyond the Stars, Star Trek (episodes II and III), Willow and The Land Before Time. The soundtrack leaves a better flavor than the movie does by itself, which finally helps to raise the level of the same one.

From these four editions in CD format, it is necessary to emphasize that they all contain notes about the movie and the music, a frankly interesting and slightly common quality in the soundtrack albums from the 80s and 90s. These publications in CD were expanding more and more between an edition and the following release, both in quantity of music and written information. A curious detail is that the Main Title did not include up to the 1992 release, edition limited to an issue of 2000 copies.

The most complete version of all of these albums that were edited is the 2-CD version that La La Land released in 2010, though it is true that it includes an almost equal content than the 1998 version of Super Tracks, though it is remastered and adds a more extensive booklet and 2 more tracks with regard to the previous edition.

Krull (ESPAÑOL)

Krull (James Horner). Varias ediciones se editaron en vinilo en 1983 bajo sellos de distintos países, y todas lo hicieron todas con idéntico contenido (6 pistas). La primera edición en CD fue editada en 1987 por Southern Cross, y, desde entonces, el hecho de que el álbum haya visto salir cuatro ediciones distintas en 23 años es indicativo de que algo especial tiene. Y a pesar del bajo nivel del drama de la historia, con unos malvados antagonistas poco madurados, y de los mejorables efectos especiales a pesar de la temprana época de producción de la película en cuestión de mejoras técnicas, Krull es una aventura cuyo aspecto épico se refleja en la música, y el Horner de los 80 es el mejor compositor que pudiera dar brillo a una partitura de aventura clásica. Ejemplos de ello, además de Krull, fueron Battle Beyond the Stars, Star Trek (episodios II y III), Willow y En Busca del Valle Encantado. La banda sonora deja mucho mejor sabor de boca que la película por sí sola, lo que finalmente contribuye a elevar el nivel de la misma.

De estas cuatro ediciones en formato CD, cabe destacar que todas contienen notas sobre la película y la música, una cualidad francamente interesante y poco común en los álbumes de los años 80 y 90. Dichas publicaciones en CD pasaban a extenderse más y más entre una edición y la siguiente, tanto en cantidad de música como en información escrita. Un detalle curioso es que el Main Title no se incluyó hasta la edición de 1992, limitada a una tirada de 2000 copias.

La versión más completa de cuantas se editaron es la versión en 2-CDs que La La Land editó en 2010, si bien es cierto que con casi igual contenido que la versión de Super Tracks de 1998, aunque añade una nueva masterización, un libreto más extenso y 2 pistas más respecto a la edición anterior.
