Product Description


Schwarzenegger's time-traveling, world-wrecking cyborg is back, but most of the original films' creative team and cast have been replaced here, with Italian-born composer Marco Beltrami (who's cut his journeyman chops on a raft of contemporary sci-fi/horror films and sequels, including the Scream franchise, Joy Ride, and Resident Evil) being a sage choice to score this third installment. Pumping Brad Fiedel's brooding original theme with even more menace, the composer proceeds to forge a massive, unsettling panorama of percussion-driven, electronic suffused orchestral fury that evokes an unsettling, mechanized world gone mad. Sounding like the symphonic sensibilities of Prokofiev and Shostakovich as interpreted by the mechanized forges and stamping machines of some hellish assembly line, Beltrami uses the most aggressive elements of 20th century Russian romanticism here like a steel club. There are moments of stem-winding suspense and surprisingly tranquil respites, but the main attraction is the sturm und drang of Beltrami's furious and often other-worldly action music. Also included are the gentle acoustic ballads "Open to Me" and "I Told You" by Dillon Dixon and Mia Julia, respectively, performances that seem jarringly out of place contrasted against the score's orchestral metal-fest. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD Jan. 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
I greatly enjoy this soundtrack. When I got this CD for a gift I didn't know if I would enjoy it. However once I turned it on and listened to the whole thing I was blown away. I love this soundtrack so much that it has been saved on my computer. The only part of the soundtrack that I saw as pointless would have to be the last two songs. "Open to Me" and "I told You" have nothing to do with the movie. Which had me go "huh?". But all in all it is an awsome CD. Marco Beltrami did an exellent job and I would recommend that people buy it. It is different from the other two Terminator soundtracks, but, that should be expected since it's composed by a different person. It contains 21 tracks and runs for 51:30.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Step Forward Dec 2 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The score for T-3 has (like most elements of the Terminator series) gone through considerable changes (for the better) since the last installment. Replacing the simplistic music (well... noise really) of Brad Fiedel with rich strings, full chior, and the Hollywood Studio Symphony going full-throttle from the mind of the wonderful composer Marco Beltrami. Many of those who have problems with this change don't understand brillance of the score because they only understand simplistic music that has been done in the past. Ignore the other reviewers, this is a score that will be a valued in your soundtrack collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good CD Sept. 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
When I first listen to a CD, I don't really like it. But after I listen to it a couple more times, I start liking it more and more. The score was good, but it lacked something I like which is the good, action-packed, songs to be drawn out. For example, the car chase song (Overdrive) in The Matrix Reloaded is not only really good!, but it's 10 minutes long. In Rise Of The Machines, the good action parts are, in my opinion, too short. Blonde Behind The Wheel was good, but it was kind of weird a made me think of the circus. :\ Graveryard Shootout had a cool sound to it that reminded me of The X-Files movie score. I wish there was more of that sound. I also liked track 19, the new version of The Terminator Theme... But, it was too short. It needed to be continued, in my opinion of course. Track 18, T3, is my favorite song, but I would have added something to the ending.... I know exactly what it needs, but it's not easy to explain. :) Overall though, I think Rise Of The Machines is well worth the money, unless you're not into this kind of music. And I hope to see a forth movie, with Kristanna Loken of course. :) It would be neat to see if the war happens or if the world is saved, somehow... And I'd like some more Terminator music to listen to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but nothing all that new Aug. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
Being the big sci-fi continuity geek that I am, I've decided to celebrate Judgment Day by voicing my thoughts on the soundtrack to Terminator 3®. And away we go...
While I found Mr. Beltrami's score somewhat rousing in parts, all in all I wasn't incredibly impressed. My disappointment is due mainly to the fact that the tunage here doesn't sound very original me. Whenever one track or another starts pipin' up, it's usually reminiscent of other background scores I've heard in other recent action/suspense/sci-fi flicks. Of course, I could be askin' a bit much when it comes to originality here-it IS the soundtrack to a sequel, after all. The most disappointing cut of all was Beltrami's rendition of the Terminator theme; his reworking of this immortal Brad Fiedel-composed piece-- the most notable change being a slightly off-kilter tempo-- might work as an opening theme to Terminator: The TV Series ™ (should such a project ever come to fruition), but otherwise it's a subpar rehash.
One thing that irked me about this CD was music's fluctuating volume level. There are a few tracks where the piece starts out at a volume level so low I can hardly hear it, then alluva sudden it rises to a crescendo that's absolutely deafening! Which, probably not coincidentally, is the same experience I had with the music when I saw T3™ at the local MiniPlex™...

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not Brad Fiedel, get over it Aug. 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
While Brad Fiedel will always be the true musical voice of the Terminator; Marco Beltrami (who composed the scores to the Scream trilogy, Joy Ride, Mimic, and Resident Evil with Marilyn Manson) does a fine job with scoring this overhauled installment of the Terminator series. Replacing Fiedel's synth-laced score with a more conventional metal themed score, Beltrami has conceived an above average film score that falls short of it's predecessor's, but just like the new film, succeeds in it's own right. The first half of the disc is excellent, but begins to lose steam before picking up again with a brief re-imagining of Fiedel's classic awe-inspiring Termiantor theme. The last two songs are totally out of place here, and are absolutely worthless in terms of having to do with the film. Besides that, this is worth owning for any Terminator fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good Aug. 5 2003
By Gustav
Format:Audio CD
I saw this movie 5 days ago, and the whole thing literally blew me away. The end of the movie left me a bit sad. Then I began checking out the soundtrack. The songs (all instrumental, except 2 bonus tracks) reflect the kind of thrill you might've experienced while watching the movie. Especially, the 17th track, Radio, that's the most beautiful song I've ever heard. I like feel sad when hearing it. The new composer, Marco Beltrami isn't as bad as you might think. He really knows what he's doing, and the music is similar to the Terminator 2 soundtrack. Anyway, this soundtrack is amazing. If you really liked T3, go buy this soundtrack.

The music fit the movie so well, I really didn't notice it much at the theater. I did however miss Brad Fidel's synth-heavy scoring. Read more

This score is just a symptom of a bad movie. Beltrami has done better music in the past (The Crow: Salvation) but this is a farce of the the original score mastered by Brad... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Terminator yet!
This score was outstanding! Beltrami has taken Terminator to a new level! Better than the first two, and even those were good. I highly recommend this to anyone!
