The Abyss (ENGLISH)

The Abyss (Alan Silvestri). The release of the deluxe edition of the soundtrack of The Abyss, though it is not of the most wished, comes to show the good moment that this type of releases have in the second decade of the 21st century. And it is that the releases of movie soundtracks of last decades do not stop being re-edited, probably with the intention to attract again the traditional fan to do cash desk, against piracy and the digital editions of the current movies, which, on having been cheaper, have done that the collection for soundtracks gets down with regard to previous epochs.

In case of The Abyss, the footage is generous with regard to the original edition and includes some extras in the shape of alternate and unused tracks that complete the musical experience that Silvestri gave to James Cameron's submarine epic, a film in which could be perceive his tastes and technologies skills later seen in the liquid metal of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, the submarine setting of Titanic and the bioluminescence creatures of Avatar.

The deluxe edition is a good mixing among purely atmospheric tracks, which show the burden of the submarine installation, the tracks of action and the choir versions relating to the extraterrestrial beings.


Abyss (Alan Silvestri). El lanzamiento de la edición de lujo de la banda sonora de The Abyss, aunque no es de los más deseados, viene a constatar el buen momento que este tipo de relanzamientos tienen en la segunda década del siglo XXI. Y es que los lanzamientos de bandas sonoras de películas de décadas pasadas no paran de ser reeditados, quizás con al intención de atraer de nuevo al aficionado tradicional para hacer caja frente al pirateo y las ediciones digitales de las películas actuales, que, al ser más baratas, han hecho que la recaudación por banda sonora descienda respecto a épocas anteriores.

En el caso de The Abyss, el metraje es generoso respecto a la edición original e incluye algunos extras en forma de pistas alternativas y no usadas que completan la experiencia musical que Silvestri dio a la epopeya submarina de James Cameron, un film en el que ya se aprecian sus gustos y técnicas más tarde vistos en el metal líquido de Terminator 2: el juicio final, la ambientación submarina de Titanic y las criaturas bioluminiscentes de Avatar.

La edición de lujo es una buena mezcla entre pistas puramente atmosféricas, que muestran el agobio de la instalación submarina, las pistas de acción y las versiones corales referentes a los extraterrestres.
