Terminator Salvation features an original score by multiple-award-winning composer Danny Elfman, who has composed the score for more than 60 motion pictures, including Batman, all three Spider-Man blockbusters, Milk, Good Will Hunting, Men In Black, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Capturing what the film's director McG calls "the delicate nature of humanity and the unrelenting brutality of the machines," Elfman's synthesizer/orchestral score for Terminator Salvation elevates and expands the sweeping soundscape of one of the most successful film franchises in history. The soundtrack also includes "Rooster," a classic song by Seattle hard-rock band Alice in Chains, written by the band's guitarist Jerry Cantrell for his father, who served in the military during the Vietnam War.

For being a soundtrack with no vocals this album is excellent. I throughly enjoyed listening to it.
oops!! i must not have paid attention when choosing this cd. it was not what i expected at all and i will be returning it. except rooster this entire cd is purely instrumental. i appreciate the sound quality and the music as a whole but this is not something i would enjoy listening to.
Much like a lot of His recent scores, Danny Elfman's work here needs a few listens to truly appreciate. The Main Title track is wonderful, and there are a few other stand out cues but not as many as on his recent scores to Alice in Wonderland or Wolfman (both highly recommended). The problem usually comes from the slower tempo cues that seems to leave out a little bit of the humanity element; although there is at least one good cue towards the end of the CD that represents this using acoustic guitar for the voice of the humans. If you want percussive-marshal-Elfman then look no further than his score to the Planet of the Apes remake.
