I like this music!The #balfeness !!!! Has outdone himself on Bad Boys for Life.<br>A nod to the last but brought it up to date.<br>This and 6 Underground has blown me away with Balfe’s musici can't understand, when someone is saying "it REMINDS of mw2" when those mentioned cues are completely re-used 1:1. it's identical, sometimes layered with mancinas themes. it doesn't just remind you of mw2 when lorne seriously uses the identical tracks or parts from mw2 -_-<br><br>@bayhem: then listen to it. i'm not a fan of lorne, but his work there is real fun and some real good action cues. with the themes of Zimmer, it's crazy that it's just a game. one of or maybe THE best work of lorne!Colleague of mine (a film score fan too) asked me which new Balfe score is better in my opinion - Bad Boys for Life or 6 Underground?<br><br>Honestly - and as much as I praised BB3 - I couldn't decide......<br><br><br>Both movies have a lot of songs, which is something I don't like. Look at Transformers. There are songs too but they don't overshadow the score. The score is still the star and that's why people flood Steve's Twitter with praise. Day after day. <br><br>But sadly for Lorne, his recent work in film WAS indeed overshadowed by the random songs. If they didn't rely on songs so much, I'm sure that 6 Underground would've been the crown jewel for Lorne. It's a big, big movie that begs for equally big and memorable score (though we can't really expect Transformners-syze score). <br><br>At the end of the day, Lorne did good on 6 Underground but it was just a small sign of what COULD have been.....Some of the action bits, yeah......
This right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...<br>....................<br><br><br>It's bigger than that.....<br><br>After all, this is a Bruckheimer production. His movies established Hans and the entire MV/RC sound. His movies are known for their awesome scores. Scores that are populrar with the ordinary viewers as well.  But 2008 onward, things changed.....Back in the 90's and early 2000's every single Bruckheimer film had a spectacular score. Powerful, melodic themes, cues that stayed with you, scores that attracted the attention of the average Joe. <br><br>Nowadays tho, we don't have that. Hell, when was the last time a (newer) action score from MV/RC-related composer was praised the way 'The Rock' was praised?<br><br>Lorne's Mission Impossible? No. Not even close. <br><br><br>Personally, I like what Lorne did with BB3, especially with the emotional cues. But put it next to Mancina's work. I mean it's not even a contest. The Mancina score is one memorable, melodic track after another. There's not a single boring track. Every track is a banger. <br><br>But the newer scores? They have two or three tracks that are  good and everything else is.......utterly forgettable.<br><br>I blame it on the lack of themes. Orchestra or not, more scores need to have actual themes.Some cues sound like Speed 2Guess I'm the only person around here who hasn't listened to the Modern Warfare 2 score. So I can't really have an opinion on this matter..... lolThis right here is my single biggest issue with Balfe as a composer. And with the recording sessions clips he posts it is truly a mystery. Tinfoil hat on I'd say he skimps on the budget and hires those musicians just for a couple hours to shoot those clips for PR and the actual score is all synth but that's a baseless claim of course lol...Everyone keep mentionning mw2 but those drums reminded me of...skylanders giants lol! Just listen to the track « Arena battle » and let me know
The clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)
God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?

After revisiting this one, it's not as bad as I thought. Tessa is a beautiful theme (but is completely fucked over by aesthetics, with the exception of its first appearance).

Decision has an impressive amount of progression throughout the film with the finale Dinobot Charge remaining one of Jablonsky's best. The action in general is pretty fun but, similarly to TF3, it lacks the substance that TF1, TF2, and TF5's action tracks have.

Lockdown and Galvatron's themes were suitably menacing and were used effectively, and I have no idea why Jablonsky didn't carry over the Galvatron theme to TF5 as it suits the Frank Welker Megatron fairly well.

Hunted is a pretty decent action theme when the vocals are absent, and Autobots Reunite was good, but I'm not really sure what it's supposed to represent considering it only plays twice in the film.

The main problem is of course, the complete lack of thematic continuity. I don't care if this was supposed to be a soft reboot of sorts, you have to keep the themes your series is remembered for, especially if you have the same composer. Don't make an array of new ones to just be abandoned in the next film, and give the original themes one reprise each! Because of this score, it makes the Transformers series' music look like an unplanned mess that doesn't know where it's going.

Thankfully Steve attempted to rectify this in TF5 by having reprises from every corner of the series and using the original themes much more frequently, along with the Autobot themes' building progression. That score actually makes this one look better because the Autobots theme being rebuilt makes it feel like it was only absent from this score because TF4 was about them being hunted, and TF5 has them semi-repairing their relationship with humans.

But on its own, this score is definitely the weakest, and reeks of studio interference with the unoriginal sound and Imagine Dragons' involvement.

In case he's visiting this site, I wanna say 'Thank You' to Ashton Gleckman who does the 'Behind the Score' episodes on YouTube. I loved the 1-hour episode for the Transformers scores and I actually learned a lot. Very educational. I found the video by accident and now I plan on watching his other videos as well.

Job well done, my friend.

Now THAT is a great cover for the score. Great image. Love it. Someone really needs to do something similar for the TF5 score, because the official covers are, pardon my French, quite lame and cheap-looking. They really dropped the ball with the covers and the posters.

Did Mr. Jablonsky write that beautiful piano melody in Hunted? Or was it Hans?

Bayhem2017-06-29 22:14:52
As a fan of Steve's work, and being quite familiar with his style, my guess is that he is the one who wrote this melody. Don't think Zimmer was *that* involved with the score.

James2017-06-30 00:07:15
The involvement of Hans is related to the material produced by Imagine Dragons.

You mean "Brothers in Arms" is super similar to the Openining of "Fighter Chase" aka "Punch Hold Slide Repeat" (Original Titel from the Official Score) from Transformers: AOE.

I was listening to the 4 scores this (yeah, like the 10 hours of it or so... lol), and TF4 definitely is the weakest of all...

The themes are cool (Lockdown, Battle Cry, Autobots Reunite) but as a whole the score is pretty boring to follow... Not to mention the very tiring Trapanese sound all around it, like this guy is just able to write Tron-on-demand, with a very lame rip of Oblivion's theme... It's just so annoying...

The third has also temp problems, but was much more interesting and sounded like Steve at least, and his themes were awesome.

The first 2 are in a whole different league, but you don't have to be Einstein to find out that more than half of those scores are not by Jablonsky lol... My favorite remains the second score, because it brings all the good stuff from the first with that particular sound (electro + elec guitar) added by Balfe, who definitely like 60% of the cues lol. And Steve's themes were great + LP's New Divide theme.

Funny that in the end I'll tend to find the Jablonsky/Berg collaboration more interesting...

Edmund Meinerts2014-12-05 14:08:17
I still like the first one best by far. It has this interseting "MV meets RC" thing going for it, like Armageddon crossed with Batman Begins. And those awesome power anthems..."Arrival to Earth", man. That's Transformers for me. I wish those themes had been used more consistently throughout the series.

After that I'd go 3, 2, 4. I'm not a huge fan of that "Balfishness" you're talking about from the second, to be honest, but I do like the choral/vocal stuff.

Why you dissing JT? :(

Hybrid Soldier2014-12-05 15:12:44
The influence of A&D is big on TF2... But I really like those themes, The Fallen, the new Prime theme... Lorne's action cues are great, like "Autobots On The Move" or "Simmons' Moment"... And on the first score as well...

Hybrid Soldier2014-12-05 15:20:35
Because I realize I don't like his much in the end. It was a good combo on Tron, toying with Daft Punk's loop electro trademark... But since then, it's just the same every time. When it comes to underscore I think he brings nothing. Oblivion has 4 great tracks (StarWaves, Earth 2077, I'm Sending You Away, Fearful Odds), but the rest is just a boring Tron ripoff.

And bringing him on the TF saga to do what, more of the same ? Come on...

Hybrid Soldier2014-12-05 15:21:08
Jeez I can't type today, his music I meant of course... lol

Edmund Meinerts2014-12-05 17:59:53
Funny, Hybrid, those tracks you mention from Oblivion are almost exactly my favorites from that score. Except I'd add Waking Up (even though it's basically a Dark Knight rip) and the score's best action track Canyon Battle. Oblivion works for me as a guilty pleasure but yeah, it's a little suspiciously close to Tron in too many places, and the underscore gets really dull on the deluxe edition.

Then again, between Tron ripoffs and Inception ripoffs, I know which I'd rather listen to... :p

Ds2014-12-06 12:46:42
Edmund and Hybrid, it's funny to see we like the exact same tracks from Oblivion. The 4 Hybrid mentionned are my favorite ones, then the 2 from Edmund. And I just don't listen to the rest, except some nice (but short) soft piano parts.

But I still think Oblivion's score works extremely well in the movie as a whole. It does marvels with Kosinski's classy visual style, and I think it's a really good collaboration.

Great decision! Did they mention where was it gonna be before Bay changed it's place?

Ds2014-12-02 21:38:56
Everan, he said he just wrote a "very simple piece", without knowing where to put it, and then Bay took it and tried to play it with the Dinobot charge. When they saw how awesome it sounded, Jablonsky started to work around that idea, and it gave what we know as "Dinobot Charge". So I think the cue itself has been written for the scene, but not the theme/main idea.

Curious question... is "Optimus Comes To Humans Defense" known as the OST track "Cemetery Wind" ?

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-30 20:10:44
Yep... You wanna know how I do my analysis ? Okay, let's show it :


T-Mann0362014-11-30 21:34:34
Brilliant deduction, Soldier. I'm impressed at your analysis.

Adam2014-11-30 21:40:46
Seems legit! Now are any other credits known, Hybrid?

And yes T-Mann, "Optimus Comes to Humans Defense" is "Cemetery Wind" off the OST, only it's the film mix!

Per2014-12-01 15:58:17
I have no idea if they're correct or not, but the FYC site files do list several names under "Composer" on many of the tracks. Not just Jablonsky...

Here it is...

And before any stupid yells "but ? but ? but ?" I simply use all the material I can, in this case FYC & OSTs...

Edmund Meinerts2014-11-26 23:46:12
Zimmer was in on this one again, huh. I shouldn't even be surprised. :p

Also, the Imagine Dragons credits...were they really involved with those cues compositionally? Beyond just providing vocals?

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-26 23:47:37
Hans just co-wrote the song... I only credit him when it's used somehow...

Edmund Meinerts2014-11-26 23:49:23
So...really the only credits here are the Joseph Trapanese ones. ;)

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-26 23:50:57
Well from his website, and a bunch of Jab ones, but not much detailed yet... Should appear wider at BMI soon... I know Fleming, Trapanese & Shea at least are getting some royalties... Which is quite rare with Jab scores lol...

Edmund Meinerts2014-11-26 23:51:00
Also, I'm kind of surprised "Transformium" isn't Trapanese. That cue sounds straight out of Tron or Oblivion.

drunkenmunkey2014-11-27 00:19:55
finally putting that fan cover to good use! It's awesome!

Anonymous2014-11-27 02:15:06
It sucks.

If I were in charge of this website I'd have professionally made covers put up. This one is shoddy

T-Mann0362014-11-27 04:23:17
Mind-freaking-blown! I salute ya, Soldier!

JLR2014-11-27 04:29:53
Is this a joke? I mean come on, what is this, one more: hey-lets-release-yet-another-expanded-score-so-all-the-sucke r-fans-will-spend-even-more-money. This is getting ridiculous, why do they keep screwing the fans like this?

T-Mann0362014-11-27 04:31:30
It's pointless to become a Negative Nancy, my friend.

thejok3rrules2014-11-27 06:09:27
No one is selling anything, JLR... How about you calm down.

Poe2014-11-27 06:10:24
So even the demos and Alternates are on the OSTs?

thejok3rrules2014-11-27 08:47:33
No. But even if you wanted to, you couldn't buy this now.

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-27 08:50:15
As I said it's all available material... First thing people, always compare OSTs & bootlegs first, there's usually a lot of content in the OST not in the boot, surprisingly...

For instance "The Legend Exists" was not on the FYC... ;)

Poe2014-11-27 22:29:22
Yep, he's right. This is how I have my edit arranged and it's real nice.

JLR2014-11-28 23:06:48
@Thejok3rrules: so what are you saying, they're GIVING it away then? That's unlikely which means they are selling it right? By the way, I'm perfectly calm, just unhappy that these artists / record companies keep re-releasing soubdtracks by adding more stuff each time like most normal people would be. Here's an idea, how about just releasing ALL of the score the first time around? See we what a calm and rational thought that is?

Poe2014-11-29 00:11:42
Yes, they are giving it away. It's currently available to listen to for free on Paramounts FYC website. Please do some research, particularly on this site, before kicking off about a non-existant issue.

JLR2014-11-29 17:50:36
@Poe, what nonexistent issue would that be? You mean the "nonexistent" issue where they are releasing the "Interstellar" score in multiple releases, each having a few more songs than the least release? Is that the nonexistent issue you were referring to? When I saw this expanded score listed for Transformers, why would I think anything different?

Poe2014-11-29 19:29:44
As I said, if you'd just done some research here it would all make sense. For one, this very page has this release listed as an "Unofficial Release" right up the top, so we know it's not a forthcoming special edition from a record company. Second of all Hybrid explains that it's a combination from the FYC files and the soundtracks.

Having said that, your statement about wishing record companies just giving us the full score first time round I sympathize with entirely. It's not that simple though, and sadly unless things change, I think all we'll ever get are "highlights" albums. Heck, even limited editions from La La Land and the like still have their faults from time to time.

Hybrid Soldier2014-11-29 19:53:21
Well the "complete" for a Transformers movie would be impossible to release (not immediatly at least), it's a union recorded score, which means you have to pay re use fees for each 15 min of music... lol

Poe2014-11-29 22:24:06
True. Maybe in 10 years or so, though ;)
