CD Reviews

Definitive indeed!!!
Ilker Yucel | Annapolis, MD United States | 12/30/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, so some people complain that this can not be considered the definitive soundtrack since it does not include the '80's pop songs that were played in the Tech Noir scenes or in the walkman...therefore, the flaw in this CD is that it should be labeled the definitive "SCORE" composed by Brad Fiedel. That way, it is by no means an incorrect label. This CD has it all! All the original music Brad Fiedel wrote for this classic sci-fi action film is included here...and while it does succumb to the '80's sensibility of overuse of synthesizers and sequencers, the score hardly suffers from it. Fiedel's use of metallic percussion gives a chilling sense of the mechanical masters of the future and the monstrous terminator. It's frightening, heart pouding, frenetic, and above all...a GREAT FILM SCORE!!! The second film's score was more dynamic (both because it used a full orchestra, and because the compositions deviated from the single key...practically every piece of music on this CD is in the same key without a lot of changes, but that's the musician in me talking), but that hardly hurts this CD. This is truly one of the great film scores of all time!"
Definitively definitive

"This is indeed the definitive Terminator score to own. The key word being score (score = the music composed for the film, heard in the background by the audience and not the movie characters). The Technoir music is part of the plot, not the score. I notice some variations in the customer pictures. As this is now a collector's item, I figure I'd add my 2 cents as to some confusion over versions:

I picked up my copy when in was released in Canada. My copy is made in Germany, "(c) 1994 edel company" (not "edel america"), has UPC 8212429022, and has a red label on the front saying "Includes Previously Unreleased Material".

There's another version that is from "Edel America" with UPC 782124290221. I suspect that this one has a red label that says "Included New Material", based on images I've seen.

So it seems there's an USA (edel america) and international (edel company) version. Except for the place of manufacture and some cosmetic differences they're otherwise identical. But if you're particular over such things, check to make sure you're getting the version you want."

"This is basically is the best soundtrack you could get its espically better then the first Version of the Track you got all the music from the theme then just like 4 tracks and the rest its songs. but this is for the fans who like the Terminator music not the songs, everyone can remember the Terminator theme in the back ground on the main titles and at the end, The Terminators Arrival that beats it way though out the film? thats the Definitive Edition"
