REVIEW

Stargate (ENGLISH)

Stargate (David Arnold). David Arnold's score for Stargate might consider as the inheritor of the symphonic classic style of science fiction of, for example, Star Wars, by John Williams. The score is a jewel that surprised enormously and that supposed the entrance in Hollywood of its composer by the main gate.

One of the best qualities of Stargate's standard edition is that it has a high number of tracks, 30, much more on what it is usual. And it is that the standard edition hasn't had any problems in showing tracks of only one or two minutes separately, without need to mix thme to create longer tracks, which facilitates the listening.

The Deluxe Edition continues with this philosophy and adds a few more tracks, although it is true that just suppose an increase of 8 minutes with regard to the original edition. To be an edition of one disc, this high quantity of tracks makes smile the fan who prepares to enjoy with such quantity of music. It only lacks of a booklet more widely detailed in order that really there was deserving the qualifying of "deluxe edition", and seeing that the booklet is not too extensive, we just would have qualified it as an "expanded edition".

Stargate: puerta a las estrellas (ESPAÑOL)

Stargate: puerta a las estrellas (David Arnold). La partitura de David Arnold para Stargate podría considerarse como la heredera del estilo sinfónico clásico de ciencia ficción de, por ejemplo, Star Wars, de John Williams. El score es una joya que sorprendió enormemente y que supuso la entrada en Hollywood de su compositor por la puerta grande.

Una de las mejores cualidades de la edición estándar de Stargate es que contaba con un elevado número de pistas, 30, muy por encima de lo que suele ser habitual. Y es que dicha edición no ha tenido problemas en mostrar pistas de apenas uno o dos minutos por separado, sin necesidad de mezclarlas y crear con ello pistas más largas, lo que facilita la escucha.

La edición de lujo continúa con esta filosofía y añade unas cuantas pistas más, si bien es verdad que tan solo suponen un incremento de 8 minutos respecto a la edición original. Para ser una edición de un solo disco, esta elevada cantidad de pistas hace sonreír al aficionado que se dispone a disfrutar de tal cantidad de música. Tan solo le faltó un libreto más ampliamente detallado para que realmente mereciera el calificativo de "edición de lujo", y dado que éste no es gran cosa, nosotros tan solo la habríamos calificado "edición expandida".
