"I'm at a bar called Tech Noir."

"More incomplete soundtrack antics for fans. This is the original Terminator soundtrack disc containing part of Brad Fiedel's score plus all of the songs featured in the film. So yes, the songs from Tech Noir are here (You've Got Me Burning, Photoplay) as well as the songs Gingers blasts through her boxy Walkman before Arnold interrupts the party. The score is low budget, synth-based, workmanlike, and very appropriate for the film. The electronics fit the film perfectly even if it doesn't date well. The main theme is the highlight, running over 4 minutes and is preferable to the opening theme from T2 (which is a shorter rehash). It's got a slow build up, then starts pounding. You'll also notice that the Terminator Arrival music is the same basic cue that plays whenever Arnold is on the screen (care theft, gun store, shooting the first Sarah, etc.) In the mid-1990s the Definitive Edition of the soundtrack was released, meaning just about all of Fiedel's score saw the light of day, including the intense music from the police station invasion, etc. However, that 'definitive' edition didn't have any of the songs. The songs are kind of cheesy, very 80s, but fans of the film will appreciate them. I'm sure James Cameron wanted to get higher profile artists, but they took what they could get and we're the better for it. Both discs are out of print now, but not difficult to come across. For the Terminator fan, and the soundtrack fan, they're both recommended."

"The definite edition is better. The original soundtrack contains a lot of junk (tracks 7 and up). On the other hand, 'love scene' is a very good piano piece. If you have enough money, buy both. AS"
I love this !
