Brad Fiedel’s haunting synthesizer score was one of the unacknowledged highlights of James Cameron’s 1984 sci-fi/action-adventure/thriller The Terminator. The ex-Hall & Oates keyboardman delivered music of grim, pulsing, intense power, which underscored the mood as well as the action, and seemed to reflect the eeriness of a suspense plot built on notions of pre-determined events and destinies. This CD includes Fiedel’s complete score in 18 tracks, remastered in state-of-the-art 1990’s digital audio, which lends itself especially well to synthesizer music. the 73 minute running time doubles the length of the original soundtrack release, and includes as a bonus track the “Judgement Day Remix” of the “Theme From ‘The Terminator'”. There’s also extensive annotation on each track, and the whole package comprises some of the best science fiction-oriented film music of recent decades.
