Album Reviews:

Pitchfork (Website) - "The 1984 film THE TERMINATOR's vision of humanity crushed by a malign artificial intelligence was backed up by a Brad Fiedel score that not just dramatized but echoed that sense of a machine army in the ascendant."

Brad Fiedel's score to James Cameron's seminal SF action classic is a jacknife plunge through the chrome fixtures and polystyrene base metals of your speakers, amplifier and inner ear canals. A cyborg romp of galloping synth fillips and quacking electronics, Fiedel's work is alternately futuristic, poignant and every bit an independent work of music wholly removed from its source matter.

The opening theme captures both the vivid imagery of Cameron's future world and the hapless humans who soon bear witness to the apocalypse, Fiedel expressing the adventure through melancholy chords, laser-sharp synth stings, and percussion that rings out like emergency broadcast klaxons. His orchestrations for the chase scenes resonate like the best synth-pop of early '80s British experimentalists, while his longer pieces, stark in their minimalism, signal approaching dread and machine desire via an almost unbearable air of suspense. Science fiction music for the robot age, and one of the most compelling soundtracks of the '80s, this definitive edition also includes works never heard in the final film.
