Honestly man, I never understood this site's ratings either.For those of you disappointed in this score...remember...This is Bad Boys 3 lol....Have you heard Bad Boys 1+2? Cmon now...relax and take it for what it isI'd be surprised if we don't see some Wallfisch scores this year. He has been so prolific lately, would be weird to suddenly go an entire year without a single assignment.CD coming from LLL!Really liked this score, and the movie wasn't as bad as people claim as well... Benjamin Wallfisch does some very nice stuff, his horror scores are always on point like It 1 & 2, Annabelle: Creation, A Cure for Wellness...<br><br>I know he's gonna deliver it with Mortal Kombat even if the movie isn't that good. But kind of a bummer that his next scheduled project comes out in 2021 LOL
'Cause maybe the expected all the cues from the sessionsI 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 knowThe clips are on his Facebook page.2/5 stars? Why are people hating on this?Me tooExcited!!!

"Optimus" is a blessing from the heavens. Words cannot describe the brilliance of this track. Thank you Mr. Jablonsky.

In my opinion this score is fantastic. You can really here the influence of Hans Zimmer. My favourite track is "You're a soldier now" - exellent.

Looks like this CD is pretty much sold out already! Amazon.com marketplace prices are $120, crazy considering it was released in October. Does anyone know if/when it will be available again? I'm in the UK which makes it even more difficult to find.

The score may have been infulenced by Mr. Hans' pervious works, but it has not been copied. There IS originality in many parts of the score. The music is really nice, IMO.

The problem with all these composers workin' for Zimmer is that it's gonna be hard for any of them to create their own signature sound. This was a great score, but if you want originality you might as well listen to a Zimmer queue instead. A lot of Remote Control's scores are starting to sound all too much a like. What happened to the good 'ol days when all a composer had was a piano and a blank piece of sheet music. John Williams, Ennio Morricone, or Jerry Goldsmith never relied on computers or 10 other composers to write their music, which is why they are legends!

They use a very small part of "Frenzy" in that scene.And yeah, Nokiabot is used in the scene after that, ending with Starscream landing on Hoover Dam.

@Westfall

You're right dude, I discovered the same thing some days ago. I can't say if it is the exact "Frenzy" cue or a variation on it, but it definitely has the same instruments, ambiance and overall sound.
The "52-tracks expanded" contains a cue called "Nokia Bot", but this is a mistake, it isn't used at all during the Nokia Bot sequence but just after, as the Decepticons are mobilizing next to Frenzy's call and that Starscream fires the energy plant.

Westfall reply Replies: 0 || 2007-10-21 00:00:00
Actually track 5 is in the movie, although i've only noticed it after i heard it in the score.It play in the Nokiabot scene, while the little critter is running around inside the box. It is of course, only a fraction of whats in the score but its definitly track 5-Frenzy.

Michael Bay mentioned in the commentary on the DVD that Hans Zimmer did contribute to the score. Hans Zimmer tends to throw in some signature pieces in his work, reflecting back to recent previous efforts. In one track, you can certainly hear Batman Begins (when Batman smashes into the elevated train). As for it sounding like Terminator, credit Brad for making the sound that indentifies us with robotic organisms.

I just thought I trow my 2 cents in. I love this album. It is fantastic. Some of those scores could be amped up and more complicated in Transformers 2, kind of like how John Powell did with Bourne Ultimatum.

I was blown away. Really! This has got to be the best Movie Score I have EVER heard! My favorite piece on the Score CD is "Arrival To Earth". It just drove me to tears! It was so beautiful and it made the Autobots sound as if they were Heaven-Sent and it made we want to believe they were real. It really touched me! I cried watching them arrive, espeically when one came out of the pool. I was seriously awestruck. I applaud you Steve Lablonsky. I really do! Wonderful job! Love the whole Score!
