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

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.

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™...

Composer Marco Beltrami takes over the musical chores for Brad Fiedel for the latest Terminator film. I must admit, the end result left me, both surprised and a tad disappointed at the same time. I liked Beltrami's work on the Scream Trilogy very much. But when I found out that he was doing the score for T3, I didn't know if he could follow in Fiedel's footsteps with the right kind of music.
The "surprise" came at finding out that Beltrami decided to use less of a synth sound for this installment. What was an important component to the music of the first two films, is now replaced with a more conventional sound. While the music has brief moments of that unique style that fits the story so well, the music for T3 has a lot of quieter passages as well, more so than Fiedel's work ever did. The action music serves the film, but for me, seems less focused and random. In other words, the music is fine, but at times left me longing for shades of what's come before. The best of those quieter moments is a theme for a now adult John Connor, who after years on run, must deal with his destiny. The theme has all of the emotion that comes with character's history--really well done stuff.
The soundtrack includes an all too brief appearance of Fiedel's kick ... "Teminator Theme", two rather out of place sounding Ballads; Open To Me by Dillon Dixon and I Told You by Mia Julia, both of which may leave you saying "huh" The CD insert includes photos from the film and a word from director Johnathan Mostow. The CD has 21 tracks and a running time of 51:30.
I would say the score is pretty solid even though I prefer Fiedel's work as the musical voice of the Terminator

I've been a huge fan of the Terminator series as far back as I can remember. I loved everything about them, the special effects, the story, the action, and especially the music. Brad Fiedel, not a mainstream composer, scored both T1 & T2 basically using frying pans and keyboards and it sounded great! The immortal theme of the Terminator's heart beat is recognized almost everywhere. For Terminator 3, the entire movie was given an overhaul. New director, writer, producer, and composer. Marco Beltrami has done some decent scores in the past few years including Resident Evil with Marilyn Manson, Mimic, Scream, and The Crow: Salvation. The score to T3 has differences and similarities to Fiedel's score and at the same time advances on a few new of his own. I have not seen Terminator 3 but buying a soundtrack before a film is released is a good way to foreshadow how well it will be. Honestly I'm a little scared about Terminator 3 ruining the series but with a good score like this one, it might have a chance.
