Long-awaited restoration of full, action-packed Alan Silvestri
soundtrack on 2 CDs!

Long-awaited restoration of full, action-packed Alan Silvestri soundtrack on 2 CDs! Danny Cannon directs, Sylvester Stallone stars, sizzling action in dystopian future abounds! Drawn from British comic magazine, movie literally bristles with excitement. Silvestri takes cue from hardcore-style action in film, creates masterful score with unusually strong, heroic major-key theme for Dredd, darker minor-key choral material for background story, pulsating orchestral rhythms to punctuate profuse, violent action. Dredd theme typically gets noble French horn, trumpet for leads but is flexible, also plays softly on flute in select sequences. Still, with action the name of the game, composer keeps momentum going throughout. Incredibly, Silvestri recorded some two hours of music for a picture ultimately running just 96 minutes! Explanation: He recorded lengthy score in London, selections of which appeared on Epic label in 1995 (paired with several songs) but post-production edits to film required him to make changes and record most of his score again! This time, sessions were held in Los Angeles - it is these performances that appear in finished film. New Intrada 2-CD set features both London, Los Angeles sessions! Courtesy Sony Music, a treasure-chest full of previously unreleased music is the reward! Highlights are many but spotlight goes to revised finish to score: here, Silvestri concludes with heroic fanfare familiar from 1995 album but introduces all-new treatment for brief moment of optimism that adds weight, emotion to last scene before wrapping with magnificent fortissimo coda. One of the great film score endings! CD 1 offers score as heard in picture (including powerful "revised" Main Title), CD 2 offers 45 minutes of early takes, alternates plus 4 tracks from original 1995 album in which unique assemblies were prepared. As a special "extra", riveting original soundtrack performance of "Judge Dredd - Trailer" by Jerry Goldsmith makes powerhouse finish to CD 1. Informative liner notes about entire film production by Tim Greiving, colorful graphic design by Joe Sikoryak, complete cue assembly details, musician lists for both Silvestri's Los Angeles sessions, Goldsmith's trailer sessions round out dynamic package. This one packs a punch! Alan Silvestri conducts his score, Jerry Goldsmith conducts his trailer. Intrada Special Collection release available while quantities and interest remain!

It's Mine!
This Is My Holy Grail!

Did I miss anything?

Edit: BTW, I applaud Intrada for always giving us a lot of lengthy sound samples. It's really helpful on unknown/undecided scores. (Which this one is neither of course)

HELL YES! I've been waiting for this for years. Thank you Intrada! You are truly wonderful!

Wow! Wow! WOW! I'm blown away by this release! Intrada just doesn't stop to impress me.

The number 1 in my holy grail list was precisely JUDGE DREDD, after The Shadow, River Wild, and Ghost & Darkness, all of these titles were released in a relatively short time by Intrada!

There are no enough words to express my deep gratitude to Intrada!!

You rule this planet! I love you !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome!! I may have to do a little photoshop work on the cover art (needs a black background) but otherwise couldn't be happier!

Which scoring session was used for the film?

 Posted:   May 11, 2015 - 7:29 PM   
 By:   Kim Peterson   (Member)

Wonderful release! Just received a $100 bonus check today from work and now it is time to play catch-up on some great releases! Judge Dredd, Return to Oz and The Ghost And The Darkness will be ordered soon! Who needs pay ahead programs when you have labels releasing great titles like these!!!

One of my very favorite Silvestri scores, I've always loved that original but am now happy to hear all of it. I remember dragging a friend of mine to theater to see the movie opening night and then buying the album later, right along with FIRST KNIGHT. Such a melodic feast here, with all the pulse-pounding Silvestri action one could ask for.

Stellar release! Ordered along with Return to Oz. Many thanks Intrada!

I can't wait to see all the Goldsmith fanatics talk about how they are going to buy this for a 47 second track and don't care about the rest...

 Posted:   May 11, 2015 - 11:54 PM   
 By:   Justin Boggan   (Member)

I can't wait to see those few ant-Goldsmith fans talk about how the fans are only going to buy this for... oh. Never mind. Beaten to it.
