Curiously, this release does not contain the entire score. Track 2 eliminates a sizeable portion of the music that can be heard in the film's introduction, while the correct version of "The Coming Storm", which in the film is a reprise of the Love Theme. The gun shop music on the other hand is included in "The Terminator Arrival", and not in "Gun Shop / Reese In Alley", which only features Reese's dream of the future war.
