Steve provides what the director wants. Simple as that. It's not a surprise that the most beloved Jablonsky scores are for Michael Bay films. Because Bay wants it epic, Bay wants it orchestral, Bay wants it dramatic and emotional. He pushes all buttons and Steve delivers. On the other hand, Peter Berg - the Deepwater director who did a few other movies with Jablonsky - usually goes for sound design scores. In short, he's not as epic and melodic as Bay is. So if you want to blame someone for the fact that you didn't like the Deepwater score, blame Peter Berg.Probably Branderbourg Concerto no. 3Gold is a great term . Amazing musicI totally agree because I though Lego was brilliant but this shows his other side. Dare I say - better than Lego Batman !!!!!Is there any chance to Brazilian fans to see Zimmer's concert in Brazil ???? :)
Lorne strikes gold once again!  I can't stop falling in love with Balfe's musical talent and technique.Really enjoying this soundtrack and glad they released so much music . Very emotional and the more I listen , the more I get into itSounds like 13 Hours was in temp!!!!Just saw the Movie few Hours ago and this is a really Great step back to the First one ! Like the fact that it's like in First one optimus vs megatron and Not some galvatron and his City-eatin ship stuff. When Classic themes Kicks in it feels like 2007 in the Cinema and it is much Fun! A Great direction and I Hope that we get Even more Original stuff in the next one ! <br>Go and See tranformers 5 especially of You saw the First one as a Child or if You just like it and enjoy the Music and Fun of it and don't throw it in the trash like many critics Are doin it ! <br>Yes I totaly Agree with You ! It just don't make Sense Even if musicians would get payed again they would Not lose  Money. As I Said there Are many Bad Scores out there that got played by musicians and orchestra and the fact that there Are still on iTunes and so on Shows that Even These Not so good Scores Are paying out so as You Said it is just unlogical !
Love it too. Great track, very sweet, very tender. I really love the part from 2:49 utill the end.Yup, you're right about the Autobots theme. I liked the fact that they paid an homage to the first score. Could be wrong, but I don't think we got that in the last two movies. It's like they wanted to distance themselves from the first two scores. Which, to be honest, was something I didn't like. So I'm definitely glad that there are few bits from the first score in "The Last Knight". It was great to hear it all while watching the movie itself.No, what @MrZimmerFan meant is Hans took the idea of Jablosky and not that he developed it. Ramin was also inspired on this piece for another one of Game of Thrones.Thank god they did an additional intro in the Interstellar section with heavy organ, just like in the movie. I kind of missed this the previous year, and brought me right back to when I saw Interstellar Live in London.. And with the addition of the Wonder Woman theme, this was the best show ever. Hope he does another tour somewhere in the near future!To me the business case is very unlogical! A limitation of copies makes no sense, because you avoid higher revenues. The damage has already been done, because the TF3 movie is 6 years old and Warner Bros.Music has already lost higher revenues. But even other scores like "Black Hawk down" from Hans Zimmer are not featured in iTunes, but I could buy an analogue copy (CD) in a store.<br><br>@Hybrid Soldier: Where do you have your informations from? Is Steve answering on facebook or is this a quote from an interview?
Why is Hans uncredited? I'll take it that Bumblebee/AllSpark are Steve's themes then.Not at all! ; ) That's one of my favorite tracks as well. I would also throw in the major chord progressions of the Trident theme in "Power of the Sea" and the INSANE electric cello statement of Salazar's theme at 3:00 in "Kill the Sparrow". Great workout tracks!Nop, Hans took the idea from All Spark<br><br>;PReally ? Bumblebee is from Hans ?!?Its funny to read that allot of people think the music is for them, it is not and never will be. The person that has to like and approve the music is the director BAY. The music has to reflect what he wants it too, not what any of you want lol. <br><br>We are lucky we get music releases, lucky

Mini biography from IMDB

German-born composer Hans Zimmer is recognized as one of Hollywood’s most innovative musical talents‚ having first enjoyed success in the world of pop music as a member of The Buggles. The group’s single Video Killed the Radio Star became a worldwide hit and helped usher in a new era of global entertainment as the first music video to be aired on MTV.

Zimmer entered the world of film music in London during a long collaboration with famed composer and mentor Stanley Myers‚ which included the film My Beautiful Laundrette. He soon began work on several successful solo projects‚ including the critically acclaimed A World Apart‚ and during these years Zimmer pioneered the use of combining old and new musical technologies. Today‚ this work has earned him the reputation of being the father of integrating the electronic musical world with traditional orchestral arrangements.

A turning point in Zimmer’s career came in 1988 when he was asked to score Rain Man for director Barry Levinson. The film went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture of the Year and earned Zimmer his first Academy Award Nomination for Best Original Score. The next year‚ Zimmer composed the score for another Best Picture Oscar recipient‚ Driving Miss Daisy‚ starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman.

Having already scored two Best Picture winners‚ in the early ’90s Zimmer cemented his position as a pre-eminent talent with the award-winning score for The Lion King. The soundtrack has sold over 15 million copies to date and earned him an Academy Award for Best Original Score‚ a Golden Globe‚ an American Music Award‚ a Tony and two Grammy Awards. In total‚ Zimmer’s work has been nominated for 7 Golden Globes‚ 7 Grammys and seven Oscars for “Rainman”‚ “Gladiator”‚ “The Lion King”‚ “As good As It Gets”‚ “The Preachers Wife”‚ “The Thin Red Line‚” “The Prince Of Egypt” and “The Last Samurai.”

With his career in full swing‚ Zimmer was anxious to replicate the mentoring experience he had benefited from under Stanley Myers’ guidance. With state-of-the-art technology and a supportive creative environment‚ Zimmer was able to offer film-scoring opportunities to young composers at his Santa Monica-based musical ’think tank.’ This approach helped launch the careers of such notable composers as Mark Mancina‚ John Powell‚ Harry Gregson-Williams‚ Nick Glennie-Smith and Klaus Badelt.

In 2000 Zimmer scored the music for Gladiator‚ for which he received an Oscar nomination‚ in addition to Golden Globe and Broadcast Film Critics Awards for his epic score. It sold more than three million copies worldwide and spawned a second album “Gladiator: More Music From The Motion Picture‚” released on the Universal Classics/Decca label. Zimmer’s other scores that year included Mission: Impossible 2‚ The Road To El Dorado and An Everlasting Piece‚ directed by Barry Levinson.

Some of his other impressive scores include Pearl Harbor‚ The Ring‚4 films directed by Ridley Scott; Matchstick Men‚ Hannibal‚ Black Hawk Down and Thelma & Louise‚ Penny Marshall’s Riding In Cars With Boys and A League Of Their Own‚ Quentin Tarantino’s True Romance‚ Tears Of The Sun‚ Ron Howard’s Backdraft‚ Days Of Thunder‚ Smilla’s Sense Of Snow and the animated Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron for which he also co-wrote four of the songs with Bryan Adams‚ including the Golden Globe nominated “Here I Am.”

At the 27th annual Flanders International Film Festival‚ Zimmer performed live for the first time in concert with a 100-piece orchestra and a 100-piece choir. Choosing selections from his impressive body of work‚ Zimmer performed newly orchestrated concert versions of Gladiator‚ Mission: Impossible 2‚ Rain Man‚ The Lion King‚ and The Thin Red Line. The concert was recorded by Decca and released as a concert album entitled "The Wings Of A Film: The Music Of Hans Zimmer."

In 2003‚ Zimmer completed his 100th film score for the film The Last Samurai‚ starring Tom Cruise‚ for which he received both a Golden Globe and a Broadcast Film Critics nomination. Over the past year‚ Zimmer has scored Nancy Meyers’ comedy Something’s Gotta Give‚ the animated Dreamworks film‚ A Shark’s Tale (featuring voices of Will Smith‚ Renee Zellweger‚ Robert De Niro‚ Jack Black and Martin Scorsese)‚ and most recently‚ Jim Brooks’ Spanglish starring Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni (for which he also received a Golden Globe nomination). His upcoming projects include Paramount’s Weatherman starring Nicolas Cage‚ Dreamworks’ Madagascar and highly anticipated Warner Bros. summer release‚ Batman Begins.

Zimmer’s additional honors and awards include the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award in Film Composition from the National Board of Review‚ and the Frederick Loewe Award in 2003 at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. He has also received ASCAP’s Henry Mancini Award for Lifetime Achievement. Hans and his wife live in Los Angeles and he is the father of 4.
