Formality indeed. Complicated ! lol<br><br>You can bet Blake Neely didn't need anyone to "write" those 10 seconds !! lolI always found these credits to be a bit confusing. Klaus Badelt is credited on almost every cue, even when his themes don't appear and another additional composer is credited as well. I thought maybe it was just a formality that Zimmer and Badelt were credited everywhere (I mean, how much could they be involved on a cue like "Welcome to the Caribbean"?), but then "No real ship" and "Sword Fight Pt. 2" have no Badelt for some reason. Does someone know a bit more about this?well the composer confirmed he is working on it to be released very soon<br>"It's funny tho......people always complain how Hollywood plays it safe and how movies don't take chances..........but when a movie with tonal shifts that challenge the viewer and offer something bold shows up, people bitch and complain."<br><br>I didn't think it was possible for a Bay fan of all people to be this insufferably pretentious.<br><br>I thought that was more Snyder fanboy territory.<br><br>But here we are, calling dog-humping, Decepticon testicles, and mommy-on-pot-brownies "challenging the viewer."<br><br>Kudos, man.  Kudos.<br><br>You can hide behind however many fallacies you want.  If "Not to me" and "You do you" didn't give it away early on in this thread, I DIDN'T try to treat my opinions as fact.<br><br>But that doesn't mean I'm going to add a little "IMO" at the end of every goddamn sentence just to coddle you. <br><br>On the flip-side, consistently making appeals to authority and popularity, "B-b-but Spielberg said!", "B-b-but the Forbes poll said!" don't make you objective.<br><br>Y'know, it's funny.  When I listed off better blockbuster examples, you could've very easily just argued against them on the level of the films themselves, and everything would've been fine.<br><br>Sure, you would've just claimed you can't see the action at night sooner, which is rich when you praise the film series that puts the subjects of its action scenes OUT OF FOCUS every other shot, but hey, that's just honest opinions versus honest opinions.<br><br>But using two belated half-assed sequels from different, less talented directors that lost most of the appeal of the first movies, as some sorta litmus test for how well-liked the first movies were, is the biggest bunch of bullshit I've ever heard.  That's not objectivity, that's not even confusing correlation with causation, that's saying 1+2=4.<br><br>That's the real joke here.  Instead of accepting that your love of Bay is nothing more than a opinion, just as my claim that he misses the point of what makes action movies fun is, you turn into an overly-defensive nut, desperately quoting every opinion piece under the sun to pretend your opinion is some statistically-backed fact.  I've seen you do this every time someone talks shit about Bay around here.  It's psychotic.<br><br>Bad movies make money.  Everyone knows that, and everyone knows that's not proof of quality.  But if that's the kinda road you wanna go down, I guess movies like Avatar, The Force Awakens, or all the Avengers movies, are "objectively" better movies in every conceivable way than anything Bay has made in his entire career.  I mean, CLEARLY those films must have a bolder style and push more boundaries.<br><br>Why else would more people watch and rewatch them, right?<br><br>Reasonable causation is for those goshdarn geek journos.<br><br>And by the way, The Last Knight lost money.  Period.  Almost 100M according to Paramount themselves.<br><br>That's not just a domestic bomb, that's a bomb altogether.<br><br>Have a nice day.Siding with the guy that lied through his teeth to feign objectivity seems like a bad call.<br>==================<br><br>Kinda ironic, coming from you....but I'll take it as a compliment. Thank you! <br><br>And yes, he sides with me because what I say is common sense. For whatever reason, you have these strong negative feelings toward Bay films and those feelings blind you to some pretty obvious truths. <br><br>Have to say tho - for a 'hater' you sure know A LOT about him, his style and his movies. <br><br>Just admit it - you are a huge Bay fan but you just want to score some points with the snobbish internet crowd. <br><br><br><br>============<br>In any case, modern Bay and Snyder don't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Fury Road.<br>============<br><br>Oh, you're one of THOSE people......"Fury Roaaaaaaaaad is DA BEST FILM EVAAAAAAAA".<br><br>Let me guess: you also think that Nolan is the greatest director/person of all time. On par with Jesus himself. <br><br><br><br>==========<br>What DOES matter is scripts with razor focus, sharp pacing, witty and/or charming humor (if it wants humor, that is), and characters likable enough to carry us through the narrative.<br>==========<br><br>Which is what Transformers 1 is. <br><br>Which is why the movie connected with audiences. It was - at its heart - a story about a boy and his car. Even the most jaded critics enjoyed that aspect.<br><br><br>=============<br>And again, the likes of Pacific Rim, or 300, or the first Pirates of the Caribbean, or the first Kingsmen, or John Wick, or most Guy Ritchie films, or the better fourth of superhero films, illustrate that Bay and Snyder have no excuse.<br>=============<br><br>Excuse? For what?<br><br>My friend, you do realize that Bay in particular is one of the most powerful and successful filmmakers of all time, right? He is the second highest-grossing director of all time (domestically), only behind Spielberg. You can dismiss box office success all you want but you don't get to where Bay is if you're not good at your job. <br><br>Snyder is nowhere near Bay, in terms of success and influence. Personally, I don't care much about him. <br><br><br>P.S. Guy Ritchie (and Edgar Wright) are huge Bay fans. Ask yourself why. <br><br><br>===============<br>They just aren't very good filmmakers on the whole<br>===============<br><br>Your opinion.<br><br>I disagree.
Bay walks the lines between being self-serious and comical, but his films aren't well=written enough to serve the former, or witty enough to serve the latter, and the end-result is droll and annoying.<br>====================<br><br>You sure you're not a "writer" for one of those ridiculous geek sites like Collider, Screen Rant or Slash Film? Because you sound a lot like one of those "beloved" writers. <br><br>Anyway......Yes, Bay's movies always walk that line but whether that works or not is........Yes! a matter of opinion. For me, Pain and Gain is one of the best modern satires while for you it is - I'm guessing - "droll and annoying".<br><br>It's funny tho......people always complain how Hollywood plays it safe and how movies don't take chances..........but when a movie with tonal shifts that challenge the viewer and offer something bold shows up, people bitch and complain. <br><br>Some of you folks are indeed very hard to please. <br><br><br>===============<br>The first POTC earns it. The Bad Boys 2 doesn't. Infinity War earns it. TF 1/2/3/4/5 doesn't.<br>==============<br><br>Okay, now that statement is the best joke of the year! Thank you for the good laugh! Really! Oh, and I've definitely argued with you before, my friend. You are clearly one of those ten Bay haters from the IMDb forums who claim to hate everything the man does, yet they have seen EVERYTHING he had done. Why is that, I wonder?<br><br><br>===========<br>Fitting, as Synder and Bay are cut from a very similar cloth. Difference is, unless we're talking Man of Steel, I'd sooner rely on Snyder for consistently good action sequences<br>===========<br><br>Well, I would trust Spielberg on this. Because it was Spielberg who said, and I quote: "Michael (Bay) is one of the greatest action directors. He has the best eye in Hollywood." Spielberg works with a lot of directors. But he never said anything like that about any other director. So clearly he means what he says about Bay. And....you know......unlike most people, Speilberg actually knows a thing or two about filmmaking. <br><br><br>================<br>300 didn't try to start a franchise. It was a one-off adaptation of a graphic novel in the same vein as Sin City, and was successful. They tried to make a cash-grab sequel almost a decade later, without Snyder, and it failed. That's hardly the first film's fault.<br>================<br><br>It is a clear proof that people weren't that excited to visit this world again. And mind you, that happened with the first sequel! Talk about a one-time thing, huh?<br><br>At the same time, Bay made FOUR Transformers movies - with different casts - before there were any signs of audience fatigue. <br><br>That speaks for itself.<br><br>===========<br>Pacific Rim suffered from lackluster marketing, and yet still managed to turn a profit and attract a strong following.<br>==========<br><br>Excuses, excuses, excuses.....So you can display all the excuses in the world for Pac Rim but when it comes to Transformers, you don't accept anything. <br><br>Double standard much?<br><br>P.S. That "strong following" is on the internet. The same following that was supposed to make Scott Pillgrim a huge hit. Everyone knows that internet hype is not real-world hype. I know very well the type of people who act as if Pac Rim is the best thing since sliced bread. Total geeks who are angry that Transformers is much more popular and much more successful than Del Toro's "let's shoot all the robot fights in pitch black so audiences can't see shit" movie.  <br><br>Also, let's not pretend that Pac Rim is a universally beloved film. You know very well that there are A LOT of detractors as well. That's what you get when people can't tell what's going on during the movie because you shot it all at night. Just like that Godzilla movie. <br><br><br>============<br>Versus something like Transformers, which has piggybacked on an established IP, relentless marketing campaigns and tie-ins, and a fairly consistent release schedule. And even then, recycling the same bullshit eventually took its toll.<br>============<br><br><br>Wrong.<br><br>Do you read Forbes? You should. Because it's a place where objective people write. It ain't a stupid militant film geek site like Ain't it Cool News or Screen Rant.<br><br>Forbes published multiple articles explaining in great detail why the Transformers movies were successful EXACTLY because they were directed by Bay. Whether you like it or not, my friend, Bay is a brand. He is an auteur. There were multiple polls before the first two Transformers movies and Bay being the director was one of the main reasons for people to watch the movies. <br><br>But I guess you missed all of that, huh?<br><br>How convenient.<br><br><br>==============<br>Friendly reminder that AoE also relied on China (more pathetically then even Pacific Rim did) to compensate for diminishing domestic returns. To say nothing of TLK outright bombing.<br>==============<br><br>First: according to ACTUAL real data, the only TF movie that was saved by China is.......Bumblebee! Yeah, you better believe it. Go to Deadline and Forbes and read it for yourself.<br><br>Second: TLK bombed domestically, yes. <br>But not internationally. No one with actual knowledge of the situation refers to that movie as an international "bomb". Besides, there were 4 super successful TF movies before TLK. So Bay got nothing to prove. He already created one of the biggfest film franchises in history. <br><br>How many directors can say that?<br><br><br><br>==================<br>I know you like debunking Bay naysayers with "facts and logic," but it helps to not be grossly disingenuous while doing it<br>==================<br><br><br>Goes both ways, my friend. But unlike most naysayers, I don't treat my own personal opinions as facts. And if I'm being "disingenuous" then I don't even know what to say about some Bay haters who refuse to accept even the most obvious facts and truths.nopeYou realize there is a very easy and free method to get the music from that site, dont you?Random thought but this got me thinking about Zanelli's history with fantasy.<br><br>Whatever happened to his score for Delgo?  I know it's been accused of being super derivative of his other works anyways but still, it's weird to see a RCP score just drop off the face of the Earth like that.There's just something really charming about seeing a prototype for a famous future theme showing up in an old score.<br><br>Or in PotC's case, SCORES.
The only ones I've seen properly confirmed are the cues Badelt had listed on his website. The issue with everything else is that there's certain themes that's been associated with certain people, but aren't credited for every appearance. Not to mention that I've never really seen much official credits elsewhere, so I take any that I've seen with a grain of salt.This comment was made before that was properly confirmed, so he was likely going to do it solo at the time.I thought Hans was collaborating with Faltermayer For Top Gun 2From both ASCAP and GEMACan these be accessed anywhere?
The dream is collapsing... :oHoly f*ck, just listened to "Too Many Notes..." and its containing pirates theme itself from Pirates of the caribbean'No Good About Goodbye' was never the intended song for QOS. It was composed after the film was completed using thematic material from the film for Shirley Bassey to perform on her, David Arnold produced album, 'The Performance'Those files are just sitting there.<br><br>Undownloadable.<br><br>Taunting me.@Ds<br>Siding with the guy that lied through his teeth to feign objectivity seems like a bad call.<br><br>In any case, modern Bay and Snyder don't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Fury Road.<br><br>I already discussed 300 and Pacific Rim.  Clearly deep scripts aren't what I'm aiming for here when I talk about good blockbusters.<br><br>What DOES matter is scripts with razor focus, sharp pacing, witty and/or charming humor (if it wants humor, that is), and characters likable enough to carry us through the narrative.<br><br>300's a great example of this, though unfortunately a lot of Snyder's other work isn't, and Bay is close behind.  Their films get bogged with way too much obnoxious bullshit to make the odd sequence worth it.<br><br>The Scorponok sequence from TF1, the warehouse fight from BvS, that's real standout stuff.  Stuff that loses a lot of its luster when surrounded by two-and-a-half, or god forbid THREE, hours of self-serious pretense, lazy humor, and/or annoying characters.<br><br>And again, the likes of Pacific Rim, or 300, or the first Pirates of the Caribbean, or the first Kingsmen, or John Wick, or most Guy Ritchie films, or the better fourth of superhero films, illustrate that Bay and Snyder have no excuse.<br><br>They just aren't very good filmmakers on the whole, and need to learn to consolidate their efforts into something that brings out their best and subdues their worst.  Snyder in particular has SERIOUSLY misjudged where his talent is lately.

I know it's PR, but best Transformers score yet? I think it's the worst, personally...

This information is for the La-La Land CD release. You're posting in the EP not the OST


Score Seeker2014-11-04 01:23:39
Hi,

Does anybody know what happened to the score & Ep downloads on iTunes/Amazon? I looked there today to download them & they were gone on both sites. Any info/insights would be really helpful.
Thanks.


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-20 23:44:20
Steve posted an answer on FB, and I learned something today, even digital music is "limited" (crazy) :

"Iíve received a lot of questions on Facebook and Twitter asking why the TF4 soundtrack was removed from iTunes. Hereís the short-ish answer: The AFM (American Federation of Musicians) has rules regarding soundtrack releases and re-use fees. One option they offer is the option to produce and sell 14,999 units without any additional re-use fees. Once sales hit 15,000+ units, additional payments kick in. The number 15,000 was chosen I believe because a good selling soundtrack generally sells around 5k-10k units, so this option provides most union film productions the opportunity to release a soundtrack and sell up to 15k units without incurring any additional re-use costs.

Now because you guys are so awesome, the TF4 score hit 15,000 units really quickly. I honestly had no idea the score had been pulled down until fans started contacting me asking why the soundtrack had vanished from iTunes, only a couple months after the release of the film. I suspected the 15k limit was the reason, a little investigation proved that to be the case.
Some of you have asked another great question: why are TF1 and TF2 still available? For both of those scores, the people responsible for paying the additional re-use costs chose to go ahead and pay them. In other words they allowed sales to go beyond the 15k limit. Different people are in charge of TF3 and TF4, and they have chosen not to pay the additional costs, which is why neither TF3 or TF4 are available any longer. Itís strictly an economic decision. The additional re-use costs can and do add up to significant numbers, especially with scores like Transformers. These movies are huge with a ton of score, and I hire a lot of very talented musicians to perform, which results in even higher re-use costs if we go beyond the 15k limit.

I have had many many discussions about this topic, unfortunately it is out of my hands because I am not the one responsible for paying the re-use fees. For those interested in a physical TF4 CD I believe La La Land records has some unsigned copies left (sorry the signed ones are all gone). After these are gone, the TF4 score will no longer be available. The TF3 score is already gone. My hope is that we will figure out a way to re-release in the future, but for now this is the situation.

This topic is very close to my heart. Itís really hard to put so many months of work into a score and then hear from people all over the world that they would love to purchase your music but they cannot because itís not available. These are good people looking to buy this music, asking me what happened where did it go, and I donít have a good answer for them. Iím hoping with more discussion we can find better ways to address this issue. I do believe there are better ways, where everyone can benefit without fans being left out in the cold because they didnít buy the score fast enough.
thanks

Steve"

I've read that too. It's really crazy :p

I'll make sure never to erase those 2 scores from my computer :D


Anonymous2014-11-21 08:15:25
I heard Zimmer once say they sometimes come to Europe to record a score. We don't have crazy rules like that here for re-use.

That's exactly why I don't put money on Spotify and all. The music can disppear overnight.


Hybrid Soldier2014-11-21 08:44:25
Any time they, any composer will record in Europe...


But if the film is a complete US production (like Disney movies, or Michael Bay movies), you have no choice but go with unions...


D-Fens2014-12-03 17:06:13
Better keep this on the DL then; HMV Digital in the UK are still selling downloads of both the EP and score album. Not sure if people outside the UK can download from HMV Digital, but it's probably worth a look, especially if you still want the EP tracks.

Ds2014-07-01 19:41:32
It's very nice, and I'm glad these tracks are only demos and not real album tracks, because they really sound like demos (especially the drums).

What I don't like is that maybe it means that the album isn't coming until a couple of weeks... If it was gonna be released in 2 days, I doubt Steve would've put this EP out... But I may be wrong :-)


MrZimmerFan2014-07-01 19:47:48
I really digging into Lockdown's theme, is so tremendous and darker


Adam2014-07-01 20:45:04
So glad this was released last night, I had it on repeat for hours.


jewen2014-07-01 21:08:12
By far Lokdown's theme is te best. But after the great job in Ender's Game last year, I was hoping an improve over the last Transformers movie. This material is miles ago of the notable "Dark of the Moon" score.
And yes I know this is only a sneak peek but my hopes of great music are gone. For example Autobots Reunite in my personal opinion lose against the original Autobots Theme.
And if your memory fail, check this epic track again.


Adam2014-07-01 22:23:38
I agree, original Autobot theme is better. But the new one will grow on me


David2014-07-01 23:08:36
Can anyone else hear a slight variation of "4m59 The Drop" from RoTF in "Hunted"?


Everan2014-07-01 23:51:29
Around what minute, David?

I'm loving these demos, and I think they sound brilliantly for being demos and all. Will hear the whole score tomorrow with the film, finally.


David2014-07-03 06:28:48
At around 5 seconds in, and various points from then on. No specific area, just kinda all around - and then it switches to 5m39a/7m55 from DotM


David2014-07-03 06:33:15
But, that's not before Imagine Dragons show up and do their thing, then the "Battle" theme from DotM (5m39a/7m55) shows up at about 4:31 ;)


Agent Smith2014-07-03 09:42:32
i can't understand why you people like "Lockdown" the most. It's that typical electro BS, which is so present thesedays. Zimmer lost his orientation totally because of this damn electro pop sound.

Everyone critizes him because of that, and now here, everyone loves this electro dump track. While Hunted, Tessa and Autobots Reunite are also electronical sounddesign, they also have melodical themes, which makes them beautiful.

i hope we don't have too many of these "lockdown" tracks in the final ost or in the future of scores. enough of it!


theeaglesfan0052014-07-03 14:28:15
Agent Smith, Lockdown is amazing and fits the character so well.

Have you even seen the film?


Edmund Meinerts2014-07-03 14:34:03
"Fits the character so well"? It's a Michael freaking Bay film. I could write a good score for a cardboard box too.


RealFfingMusic2014-07-03 14:38:22
The music fitting Bay's character is a hilarious notion, but you have to admit, it's pretty cool -- even to Jab's standards.


Edmund Meinerts2014-07-03 16:28:15
I'll admit no such thing. "Lockdown" (the second half at least) is exactly the kind of music Jablonsky's been pumping out lately that I HATE...abuse of the BWAAA, low ugly crackling beats, no melodic line whatsoever, unpleasant sound design (thanks for nothing, Skrillex). It's all the heinous attributes of Battleship all over again. Compare that with the clever, flexible choral theme/ostinato for the Decepticons in the first movie. Much better. More of THAT please, Steve.

The first half of the Lockdown cue is OK though.


RealFfingMusic2014-07-03 19:03:24
I should have said *the first half* instead of *it's*. My mistake. And yes, the beats painfully remind me of that God-awful Battleship.

Edmund said above just about the Decepticons theme from 2007.
Personally, I miss the loud and fast-varying beat-based style along with the melody of SOCCENT Attack more. IMHO, the overtness of melody was what set Jablonsky apart -- among the more electronic composers.

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 1 || 2014-07-03 09:58:52
I was liking it up until I got to whatever the shit was up with the last couple minutes of "Lockdown". They could have found a BAAAAWWWM that sounds a bit less like the parody BAAAWWWM everyone's been using for the last four years. It's kind of hard to take seriously anymore.

Other than that, though, I quite like this. The production values aren't great and I hope we'll see a step up for the actual album (Dark of the Moon had a similar synthy sound though, so I'm not super hopeful). But the themes themselves are pretty enjoyable. "Hunted" is a good climactic-type cue (although I could kind of do without Imagine Dragons; the vocal is well integrated but there's a reason I don't listen to music with lyrics), "Tessa" a very pleasant soft-rock track in the style of Divergent or Lone Survivor, and "Autobots Reunite" a cool, energetic new theme. Even the first half of "Lockdown" is enjoyable.

This could be Steve's first really decent score since Gears 3.


MrZimmerFan2014-07-03 10:12:29
Gears 3 is a very good score ;)

Hale reply Replies: 9 || 2014-07-02 12:33:18
After a first listening, i think this is good stuff. Hunted seems to be perfect with the movie climax. However, it's a pity that the end of the track sounds too trailerish! The add of "Imagine Dragons"' song is, by contrast, very well arranged.
Tessa is a great track, very spiritual. It's like a mix of "Lone Survivor" design with the voice of Imagine Dragons.
"Autobots Reunite" isn't the best "Transformers" theme but it has merit to bring new stuff to the franchise. By the way, the theme is similar to a theme of a song in 'Gears of Wars 3' (Gary Jules - Mad World).
And, to finish, Lockdown, copy-paste of some "Man of Steel" ambient cue. I think it will be well-adapted to the movie but I regret the way Steve had chosen in previous movies (mechanical choir, big brass and old Remote Control themes : remember "Bogey Approach" in TF1).

Finally,this EP leads to predict a good score with good new stuff and a beautiful collaboration with "Imagine Dragons". I hope Steve has integrated some reprise of "Arrival to Earth" in his score because it's simply the best track of TF, this is THE main theme of the franchise, in my opinion. The theme you are waiting to listen and when it appears, it's always the best part!!

Ps - sorry for my approximative english! :D

jewen2014-07-02 12:52:47
Yes, I feel the same when I listen Lockdown many times more. Very similar sound like "DNA" track in MoS score.

Steve needs find his own sound, because many times sound like a regular clon of Zimmer. His career is literaly very short, and we hope an evolution, but for this he must be join with a great filmaker that helps him to mature and grow up.
It's my humble opinion of course.


MrZimmerFan2014-07-02 13:10:18
The original theme of Autobots is in the movie ;)

And "Arrival to Earth" theme is in the movie, Mr ZimmerFan?

MrZimmerFan, that cue should be called "The Legend Exists" ;)

@Hale: Well, Arrival to Earth is a variation from the Autobots' theme, but isn't in the movie is that form, but the Autobot's theme is in the movie, like eaglesfans says ;)

I agree with the MoS. I kept thinking of DNA when I was listening to Lockdown.

It seems like Lockdown's theme has drums inspired by Revenge of the Fallen, synths inspired by Man of Steel and sound effects from Battleship. Nonetheless, it's still a fantastic cue.

Or perhaps it's just Jablonsky's style
