Grossly underrated orchestral reworking of Hisaishi's classic score.

by

Joe Hisaishi's music for Miyazak's adventure classic CASTLE IN THE SKY comes in two formats. One is the mostly electronic/sparse orchestration from the original, and the other is this edition, an extensive, fully reorchestrated symphony written exclusively for the Disney English version. This rescore has taken undeserved hits from hardcore fans of the original, but I feel the criticisms are unjust; this is still Hisaishi's work, and his new work arguably improves on the original in many ways. Cues like "The Dragon's Nest", the robot scene, and the cavern scene all sound fantastic in this recording, but the crowning jewel is the "Destruction of Laputa", which starts out acapella as a children's choir before the orchestra joins in and gradually crescendoes to its climax. It pleases me to see that this rerecording is back in print and on LP. I highly recommend it, both as a fan of the film, its dub, and as a fan of Hisaishi, too.
