Can't think of a more meaningless and laughable award than the oscar for this one? nahh...<br>maybe he gets a nomination for dune or bondMaybe WW1984May know how to downloaddamn it would be kinda awesome and hilarious if Lorne Balfe got Lorne Balfe’d LOL
Yeah 100% fake... And there was HJ rumor on Black Widow sometimes last year, so if you do the math...Henry doesn't have an official Instagram. It looks like you are referring to the account "henry0262020" which appears to be a fake account, to the best of my knowledge.Henry Jackman is now Black Widow's composer, apparently in his instagram, posted a photoHah! Knew it. FYI, I'm not smoking anything. I don't smoke, and I abhor anyone who does.Oh interesting. When I said "refined his sound," I didn't mean that he was still trying to find his voice. This score absolutely exudes the qualities that make his work so appealing. You simply managed to put what I was trying to say in better terms. I'm definitely happy to give this one more goes in the future, but I remain more partial to some of the other installments.
This is easily my favorite X-Men score, but I do agree there is a bit of an...*odd* feel to it sometimes. The impression I get is that Powell was reeeaallly pushing himself to write the most dense and complex and ambitious score he could, and I think he may have overreached a tad. There's definitely a big contrast between this score and the much tighter, more focused sound he was bringing in his action music from a couple years prior, like Paycheck or The Bourne Supremacy. I wouldn't say he "hadn't quite refined his sound yet" - this isn't Face/Off, his voice was pretty well established by this point - but he was trying to develop it a bit faster than it was naturally going to go.<br><br>At the same time, I love how this score goes for broke, and I hate to fault a composer for too much ambition. "Phoned in" is the LAST thing this score is. But Powell would iron out the kinks and by How to Train Your Dragon he was writing a score that was just as complex, but wore the complexity a bit more naturally than X3."There is nothing musically interesting in [Ottman's] X-Men scores except the main titles."<br><br>As if I didn't need a reminder that this place can house some ludicrous opinions sometimes (no offense intended there).<br><br>The Last Stand barely cracks the top 5 of X-Men scores for me, if only because I love the themes and it carries a lot of nostalgia for me. It's pretty clear imo that this score was at a point when Powell hadn't quite refined his sound yet. I wouldn't call it phoned in whatsoever, but it's easy to get lost at points when I'm listening to the full thing. But the highlights are too great for me to call it middling either, so it barely gets a solid grade in my book. <br><br>I'm likely in the minority when I say I actually prefer Dark Phoenix. It's much more solid as a whole product.I like the tracksWow!!!Still my favorite score from the X-Men series.
Not too stoked on Powell, but the way Ottman's able to squander a good theme makes him close to the bottom of the barrel in my book. There is nothing musically interesting in his X-Men scores except the main titles.I don't know what you're smoking but you need to get off it. In the way is this phoned in, the orchestration and everything about it is perfect. No score for X-men has come close to this one except maybe X2That recording footage makes it all the more baffling to me why the end product sounds the way it does.I understand the comments about the orchestra sounding like samples by some of the comments?<br><br>If you follow his Twitter you see the BBC orchestra recording the soundtrack.Season two is cool and Balfe’s music is bigger that season 1.Bit choirs also.I love Hillbilly also but it sounds very familiar just with different guitar instruments.Paradise is so emotional and sonically more interesting to me at least

Some very important music is missing from this album. For example Autobots Arrive, Decepticons theme(whne Frenzy hacks Air Force One), Autobots them (which was used in the prologue).

The lyrics of Decepticons :

"I was wondering for a longer time now what the great lyrics in the "Decepticons theme" mean, and today, I found out: The Decepticons theme is influenced by the world famous Dies Irae. Jablonsky mixed it up, and uhm, well now you have a meaningless pot of words:

Tuba, mirum, Tuba, spargens
Tremor, David, mirum, ante

Chant which gets louder throughout:
Totum totum totum totum David
Totum spargens totum david
Totum quarens, sedisti totum

(I wasn't able to understand the rest of it.)

If ya would translate it, it would be something like this:

Trumpet, casts, Trumpet wondrous
Horror, David, Casts, before

Contained, contained, contained contained David
Contained wondrous contained David
Contained seeking, hope contained

So, it's all kinda nonsense (although the real Dies Irae has a biblical meaning behind it)."

is it me, or in both the official release and this expanded release, the track of Sam first talking to Bumblebee missing? It's actually the same track as Optimus's speech at the dam. I know that in the official CD, "Optimus" sounds alot like that track, but there were no flute music in the theater version. The theater version had more choir. That's my favorite track of them all and they don't have it in both of these version!!

The piece "when Bumblebee and Sam take the Cube out of Hoover Dam and meet with Optimus and others on a highway" is just a faster version of the "Scorponok" theme, I tried to increase the playback rate on that track and thought it was pretty much the same as in that scene. Btw. the cue "when Megatron is freed from his hybernation" is almost exactly the same as "Soccent Attack", so I wouldn't say there's a "huge chunk" missing, if you have both the promo and official album.

I live in Serbia (where is that? :-), so I kinda figured out I was going to wait really loooong to hear this outstanding score (which I also signed the petition for). However, a guy who keeps a CD shop here in Belgrade lives in USA and regularly brings ordered original music from NY. So, in order to avoid this long nail-chewing wait, I was left with no other choice than to order this masterpiece from USA. It is due to arrive on October 12th, so much earlier than it was to officially come here. I'm so happy to share this magnificent experience with ya all. Right now I'm listening to "Transformers: The Promotional Score", track "Skorpinok" (or "Scorponok" as I like to call it). God bless you all!

"Skorpinok" track was finally changed into "Scorponok" on the official score. The same i9s with "Whitwicky", it was changed into "Witwicky". I've read this in Chris Knight's review.

It's not in there, even the intro music and some major cues are not in there even though it has so many tracks. Another reason to go buy the CD.

this promo is great and has indeed more music then the original, but i have listened to 2 tracks from the original album that i have been able to get hold of and i have to say that the original is awesome, its like jablonkys gladiator if u know what i mean. buy it love it. The original takes the music to another level. I dont know if there will be a complete score or not, but if u have this 1 like i do, then u can easily make ur own. Kudos to steve jablonsky and chris for this.

I want to ask a question, "Why Skorpinok?"
I thought it should be "Skorponok", and actually that's contained in the official score album.
But it still remains "Skorpinok" in the promotional score and this expanded edition.
Why? Somebody please give me an answer.

It's just a mistake DomeCity...

Exactly like "Pouchet" in the Bad Boys release (it should be Fouchet)...

Hey hey, it's me Chris the dude who started the petition. Got the soundtrack yesterday (still can't thank Steve Jablonsky for providing this) and am now up to SEVEN times listening to it all the way through!

Mom came by and asked what was that *beautiful* music playing on the stereo and I told her it was the Transformers score and she said something about how she never knew Transformers could be so pretty :-)

Cannot recommend it enough that you guys get this CD: it is one of the highest-quality soundtracks that has ever graced my collection. This is a far richer and moving experience than you had listening to it during the movie, even. You listen to this music and it sweeps you along, puts wonderful images of heroism and big robots fighting it out in your mind. But I also can't say this enough: BE CAREFUL if you choose to listen to "Scorponok" while driving 'cuz I found myself speeding while it was playing this afternoon on the way back from a couple o' towns over.

Steve Jablonsky and his crew deserve the highest praise for their work on Transformers: The Score and Warner Records should get bigtime props for making this CD not just good, but the way every soundtrack CD should be.

BTW, even though I have a copy here (Steve sent my wife and I each a signed copy, and there's one signed copy that we'll be auctioning on eBay soon to help with something related to music education here, more details on my review at here-of-transformers.html ) but after all we've been through this summer to show support for this CD, I am DEFINITELY counting down the hours along with everyone else until Tuesday. I won't be perfectly happy until I walk into the local Best Buy and Wal-Mart and Target and perceive those nice shiny copies of Transformers: The Score on the racks. When I see it on sale, then I will be satisfied.

You guys really have no idea what's in store for you, how good this is. Just 28 1/2 more hours to go!! :-)

Take care and God bless,
Chris Knight

Something interesting... This bootleg seems to be completely different from the official CD... What do I mean ?

The album contains a lot of tracks (all ?) "special album edited", no film versions, with re-arrangements... A little bit the same Powell did with X-Men 3, with music re-worked for the CD you can't find in the film...

That's why the official release is really important, at least as important as this bootleg... ;-)

Mr. Knight, i can honestly say i never envyed someone as much as i do right now. I praise you for your effort in making this CD a reality and for joining all of us in buying the CD,even though you already have it, and signed by the genious (anyone who composes something as good as this score IS a genious) himself. I'm counting the hours till i get it, though, living in Europe, i'll have to wait a bit longer Just one question relating to your review of the score. The music in the scene where BB shrinks the cube is amongst my favorite cues from the movie, after the Arrival on Earth(?), Optimus (the sample sounds just amazing) and Autobots. Is that cue part of the All Spark track?
Once again thank you for all you've done. I salute you.
