REVIEW

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (ENGLISH)

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (John Williams). The Ultimate Edition could be able the best edition of a complete score released up to date. Its strong points are that it includes all the music of the movie chronologically arranged, with the track mixing as presented in the movie, a booklet with a photo for track that allows to do a perfect follow-up of every moment of the movie and a high number of tracks. On the other side, though inlcuyes a brief initial note on the edition, it does not include any more written information, not even the notes of composer and the director that were included in the standard edition.

On the other hand, the exterior presentation of this edition is original enough and facilitates the vision of the booklet while the music is listened. Though also it is true that the box seems not to be not opened not closed, which does not allow it to be isolated of the exterior dust as it was necessary to.

Besides the photos, the narration of the track list makes see that, for once, the edition the of the soundtrack has done to facilitate the listener of being able to immerse in the history, thing that always should be like that, since the fan of film music it is not for that he(she) likes the music exclusively, but because he(she) likes the cinema. There is no biggest pleasure than to remember a sequence of the movie by its music, and with this edition this process is facilitated like never before.

 

Subsequently, the soundtrack of Episode I has been edited repeatedly, but without adding new musical content with respect to the editions of 1999 and 2000. The most significant of this albums are listed in the above section of reissues without new musical content.

Star Wars Episodio I: La Amenaza Fantasma (ESPAÑOL)

Star Wars Episodio I: La Amenaza Fantasma (John Williams). The Ultimate Edition puede ser la mejor edición de un score completo lanzada hasta la fecha. Sus puntos fuertes son que incluye toda la música de la película ordenada cronológicamente, con la mezcla tal cual se reproduce en la película, un libreto con una foto por pista que permite hacer un perfecto seguimiento de cada momento de la película y un número de pistas elevado. Por el contrario, aunque incluye una breve nota inicial sobre la edición, no incluye más información escrita al respecto, ni siquiera las notas de compositor y director que sí se incluyeron en la edición estándar.

Por otro lado, la presentación exterior de esta edición es bastante original y facilita la visión del libreto mientras se escucha la música. Aunque también es cierto que la caja parece no estar ni abierta ni cerrada, lo que no le permite estar aislada del polvo exterior como debiera.

Además de las fotos, el estilo narrativo del listado de pistas hace ver que, por una vez, la edición de la banda sonora se ha hecho pensando en facilitar al oyente el poder sumergirse en la historia, cosa que siempre debería ser así, ya que el aficionado a la música de cine lo es no porque le guste la música exclusivamente, sino porque le gusta el cine. No hay mayor placer que recordar una secuencia de la película por su música, y con esta edición este proceso se facilita como nunca antes.

 

Posteriormente, la banda sonora del Episodio I se ha editado en repetidas ocasiones, pero sin añadir nuevo contenido musical respecto al de las ediciones de 1999 y 2000. Los más significativos de estos álbumes se enumeran en la sección anterior de reediciones sin nuevo contenido musical.
