Improving on Brad Fiedel's mindless score to Terminator 2 was hardly difficult. A newborn baby screaming into a traffic cone would sound better than that abomination. Beltrami isn't the most talented composer working in Hollywood. He's not bad by any means, but I place him squarely in the below average range. None of his scores have ever been particularly ambitious and even with the 100-piece orchestra of the Hollywood Studio Symphony at his disposal he cannot escape the metallic clanging and blatty dissonance of Fiedel's scores.

A new composer and a meaty orchestra was the perfect chance to finally lace the Terminator series with strong melodies and enhance the drama as it sets off in a new, darker, direction. Beltrami fails do this, in fact it doesn't even feel like he's really trying. He even fails to bring his own rendition of the Terminator theme to life, with a tired, disinterested performance spoiling the end credits. The score is serviceable but never once feels inspired, despite the imagination on screen, and sounds cheap and trashy too often.

Yes, it IS better than the score to Terminator 2, but carries over too much of Fiedel's mistakes while never finding a voice of its own.

The Varese album presents about 44 minutes of a total of 90 minutes, not including the two awful, completely out of place songs tacked on at the end. They are also totally out of chronological order and are so cryptically named that I don't know the correct order in which to put them.
