Time to fill the 'Terminator 2'-shaped hole in your soundtrack collection. It's not often I have to review a record that needs no introduction, but I think this qualifies. I'm being paid to write words, though, so I'll write words. 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' is of course notorious for being one of very few sci-fi sequels to actually be as good as its predecessor, if not better than (it depends who you ask).
The soundtrack of course is a blockbuster-scale affair, but errs away from orchestral-led passages (although sweeping string and boomy brass do make the odd appearance) in favour of gritty expansive synth drones and the film's signature booming metallic percussion clanking out industrial-inspired rhythms, interspersed with new agey synth calm and Carpenter-gone-epic tension. You've already heard it because everybody in the western world has now seen 'Terminator 2', but have you heard it on vinyl without all those distracting flashing images? It's a really nicely put together reissue - double LP in a gatefold sleeve with notes from the composer himself and an excellent sounding pressing.
8/10 James Customer review, 24th April 2017
Brad Fiedel when not busy stopping shots as American import goalkeeper supreme appeared to lend his unusually massive hands to making sci fi soundtracks. Good work lad but if you'd focussed on the footy you might of got out of Blackburn sooner. In other news apparently Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't get any eggs for easter this year. His secretary asked him: "Does this mean you hate easter now?"
He said: "Nah. I still love easter baby".
