The Shawshank Redemption (ENGLISH)

The Shawshank Redemption (Thomas Newman). The Shawshank Redemption soundtrack begins with a sound of artificial atmosphere, with touches of strings between intriguing and sinister, in Main Title / Courtroom. Then, the melody in strings of Shawshank Prison (Stoic Theme) is practically the only memorable melody of a score by moments complaisant with the listening and by moments tasteless. Prison Entrance continues with the dissonant themes that abound on the soundtrack, while in New Fish appears the prominence of the piano, an instrument widely used until the end of score. On the other hand, Rock Hammer is one of the few tracks where Newman allow a variation of the ethereal calm atmosphere and housed between atmospheres and soft pianos and strings.

The Shawshank Redemption is a soundtrack that takes longer to start, and is not until Suds On The Roof where we can listen a track with beautiful melody and accompaniment chords.

With a booklet with abundant notes about the film and music, La-La Land reissues the soundtrack in expanded format, including a bonus disc with alternate tracks from the score and the three sung versions also present in the original 1994 album.

Cadena Perpetua (ESPAÑOL)

Cadena Perpetua (Thomas Newman). La banda sonora de Cadena Perpetua empieza con un sonido de atmósfera artificial, con toques de cuerda entre intrigantes y siniestros, en Main Title / Courtroom. Seguidamente, la melodía en cuerdas de Shawshank Prison (Stoic Theme) es prácticamente la única melodía recordable de un score por momentos complaciente con el oído y por momentos insípido. Prison Entrance continua con los temas disonantes que abundan en la banda sonora, mientras que en New Fish aparece el protagonismo del piano, instrumento ampliamente utilizado hasta el final del score. Por otro lado, Rock Hammer es de las pocas pistas en las que Newman permiten una variación del ambiente calmado y etéreo alojada entre atmósferas y suaves pianos y cuerdas.

Cadena Perpetua es una banda sonora que le cuesta arrancar, y no es hasta Suds On The Roof donde podemos escuchar una pista con bonita melodía y acompañamiento en cuerdas.

Con un libreto con abundantes notas sobre la película y la música, La-La Land reedita la banda sonora de manera expandida, incluyendo un disco extra con pistas alternativas del score y las tres versiones cantadas presentes también en el álbum original de 1994.
