25 minutes :O Where's all of that? They didn't use that in the movie. Don't understand why so many songs were in the movie :( Will there be an expanded release?There's 25 actually lol...<br><br>And Hans just added a few notes here & there to the themes... ;)Hybrid, what "Additional music" did Hans do for this? There is hardly 7 minutes of score in this movie.There were little homages in Dark of the Moon with tracks like Communicating With Nest, but no the Autobot theme was very much distanced from at that point. Though there were many reprises of Optimus in Dark of the Moon. Also they play the 3 note escalation of Autobots in Did You Forget Who I Am.There are definitely similarities. Easy to spot. "Two Moons" (from 0:57), "We Were Gods Once" (from 0:26).
Is it me or the track "Two Moons" borrows some elements from "We Were Gods Onece" Dark of the Moon?Does anyone notice the Barbossa/Beckett theme from On Stranger Tides at 1:52 in "Shansa"?Musical Gold ! Perfect term for this . Still no suite examples ?That cue is Mazzaro !Oh, theme is Brandenburg Concerto no. 3, no Branderbourg Concerto no. 3.
This theme is probably Branderbourg Concerto no. 3.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>

What does the booklet mean crediting "Penguin World" to JunkieXL?


Anonymous2014-12-04 15:43:21
it probably means JXL took care of the Penguins' music in the score.

Afro Circus / I Like To Move It is by Junkie XL, right?


Zimson2014-02-24 20:38:14
I got another question. The melody in "Fur Power!" sounds very familiar to me. Where is it taken from? (Or was it even taken from anywhere?)

Good day.

Could you tell me, what is name of original tune used in composition Afro Circus (i like 2 move it is not meant)

Ds reply Replies: 7 || 2012-06-02 22:59:07
Just saw the movie, it was great fun with absurd humor and incredible stylish effects. The score was great, with several new themes, but there will definitely be a LOAD of great missing cues... as expected :/

Look forward to the album! nice job from Zimmer & Balfe!

All recent sequel scores by Hans Zimmer have been unacceptably short. Makes me wonder what is going to become of Dark Knight Rises.


Mr. Fate2012-06-04 03:53:58
While this score looks to be longer than both Rango and Pirates 4, it is still a bit shorter than the slightly older Zimmer outputs like Pirates 3 and Sherlock Holmes.

What startles me about this track list is track number 9...Hmmm, where else have we seen that song get used before? While it looks to be not the whole song, wouldn't it be dandy if it was in stereo?


Mr. Charles2012-06-04 06:42:21
I'm hoping the reason OST & AGoS have sucked so bad is that Hans has been hard at work making TDKR a masterpiece of a score. And if not, I just may lose all hope in mankind


Ds2012-06-04 08:43:22
Mr Charles, I completely agree.

But I promise you, the score for Madagascar 3 is very cool, far from a simple remixing of the old themes! Hans is back, that's a good news for TDKR :)


Mr. Fate2012-06-07 19:24:04
Oops, I take back everything I said a couple days ago. See, I didn't realize that over half of this soundtrack was made up of songs by various artists, and if other sources are right, we are left only with about 18 minutes of score.

That is simply obscene. Rango was 34 minutes long, but then we stepped it up a bit with Pirates 4 coming in at 45 minutes...except that if you remove all the unused, irrelevant Rodrigo y Gabriela pieces you're left with only 26 minutes of actual score.

Now we only have 18 minutes?? We could expect the trend to continue until we're left with an album full of various artists' music and one 2-minute long cue from Zimmer, and after that, he'll just stop releasing his music altogether!

Also, I see from other sources that "Non Je Ne Regrette Rien" was not performed by Edith Piaf, so there goes that hope. Rant over.


Ds2012-06-08 09:12:46
Mr Fate: you're right, but let's look back in the '90. "True Romance", "Days of Thunder", "Rain Man", .... They ALL were compilations with 2 or 3 Zimmer cues.

Here, the label wants clearly to please the kids with songs... It's sad but it is so. It's still better than Madagascar 1 & 2.

I find the Zimmer cues here very cool, with 2 or 3 good new themes.


Mr. Charles2012-06-08 09:55:57
Ahh! I love True Romance! "You're So Cool" is one of my favorite Zimmer pieces :D

in the Austrian iTunes store there is instead of the track "We No Speak Americano" the song "Cool Jerk" from The Capitols! can anybody explain me why?


Hybrid Soldier2012-06-07 17:36:41
Yeah the French lossless digital store (meaning, Qobuz... :P) I bought it from has indeed Cool Jerk instead of We Speak No Americano.

Weird... :P

But, who cares, it's not like they replaced a score cue... :)

track 9: Light The Hoop On Fire! sounds promising

only 5 score tracks...pity

oh well...it's enough to keep us going till TDKR!


Ds2012-05-14 21:54:40
5 tracks! Over 17 min of score! it's an improvement, considering the first score was over 10 min and the 2nd did contain only 3 pure score tracks from Zimmer :)


Hybrid Soldier2012-05-14 22:42:10
There's not "only" 5 tracks of score...

Actually the only "non" score material is Katy Perry & Yolande Be Cool's tracks.

All rest is handled by HZ's team.


Warfighter2012-05-16 02:22:27
@Hybrid Great to hear that! It's just i'm more into instrumental score than songs :D but you're right: this is Madagascar...songs will be fun!

I'm looking forward to it!

So, Balfe and minions will do the work, and Hans will again put his name on the cover...


Ds2012-05-12 12:27:53
I don't think so. How do you explain then why the Zimmer scores are always better than the "minion"-alone scores?

Enjoy the great music from Zimmer & co and stop complaining! The music is more than what's written on the cover :)
