I'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!!!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.

TF2 score is a good score, but there are a problem with the album : the cd is to short, in non chronological order (it's all the time the case), the non choice of several very good tracks... the first TF1 edition suffer of the same problems, but the providential complete promo score (...) fix it ,
i hope so much a promo score (complete) for TF2 (please Mr Jablonsky could you make a little leak of your work for the fans ? ;-)

Damn....One month passes and not only is Transformers off the top ten, but the score just gets blown off the wayside in favor of something else (at least for me)....

The first score held more resonance IMO...Pity.

I liked the Gladiator feel to the proceedings, but in the end, Ive heard it all before (and done better) in other films, so I just didn't care. This score seemed more like a rehash of other film themes, and then every once in a while you get the Autobot theme Reprise tossed in to remind you its the Transformers score...

This score reminded me more of other scores - Galdiator, Angels and Demons, Pirates - to name a few. The only original concept I could actually pull from this was the Linkin Park New Divide, which wasnt even Jablonsky's creation and i even read Zimmer put his entire fist into this pie.

Pretty sad...

As musicmakers go, Im more looking forward to Tyler bates latest Halloween offering, and now ignoring this once seemingly promising Jablonsky score....

I'd have to say his Friday the 13th score was better than this one.

Heres to the hopeful release of a promo!

Why do people want an expanded score so much for this film? It isn't worth a petition considering the fact that there are so many other scores that haven't even had proper releases.

A composer IS a music maker--it's kind of in the job description.

Jablonsky is not a composer - he is a music maker, just like tyler bates

There is an AWESOME revision of Skorponok at 123 minutes in the movie. The fighter jets start taking off and you can hear it begin. They need this in the score!

Well, I do like the score...but not as much as the first one. I have a feeling that Hans Zimmer had more to do with the score than one would think. I like Hans Zimmer...don't get me wrong....but in my opinion (and mine ONLY) I feel that Steve Jablonsky should have been the only composer and then perhaps the second score would not sound SO DIFFERENT from the first. Oh well...maybe a complete score can fix the problem :)

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-13 00:00:00
Personally, I liked the score a lot; a much more epic feel in some parts than the first one (and that's saying something).

Poor score to decent (but worse than T1) movie. Nothing new, nothing thrilling, maybe 2 good tracks - rest is copied from TDK, Transformers, A&D and even Pirates of the Caribbbean. Outside the movie this music sucks.

poopoobaer reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-12 00:00:00
methinks due to recent American Economic turmoil cds came to be more of a "less is more" Varese Sarabande affair...Wolverine came out with a quickie cd, although thats not such a great example (since all the music appears to be on that short disc)....

Plus considering Zimmer had his hands in the pie, DOUBLE PLUS Linkin Park put their fingers in, you're talking about silly rights and royalty issues that probobly made it way too complicated in terms of red tape.


No worries, though.....Im sure at some point you'll be seeing a bootleg surface - as soon as dvd comes out this fall/Xmas.

disappointed at this score. the film is excellent, better scenes, more robots than the first one. but the score, the music, I have to say, sucks. no better new action themes, just atomosphere music, i don't like it. it can not excite me. I prefer the First Tansformers score.

Hello, first time poster.

Transformers 2 is Bay 's best film yet.

But where are all the reprises? (New Divide/Scorponok) and new themes (Ravage/Devastaor)

This film NEEDS an expanded score.

Seriously 44 mins of music out of an 150 min film, shows disrepect to fans and assumes that since it's TF,Jablonsky and Zimmer they will buy it.

Don't be jackasses. Give the fans an expanded score.


We (hopefully) will not need to write another petition so that we can get the full 100% of the score.

Alex out.

@ comment below

The song where Devastator is climbing the pyramid and Simmons is coming up behind him is not anywhere to be found.

I'm really waiting for that song, REALLY hope to get an expanded score

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-06 00:00:00
Ill say again: the released cd pretty much has all the music, save extensions, underscore, ravage theme, megatron theme....FYI The track Heed Our Warning was not in the film itself.

All in all not too many to speak of. The reprises alone were not so noteworthy...and if one were so inclined one could very well put together a more complete version of Fallen by editing bits of the first score into this one.

Ive seen the flick twice. Heard everything it had to offer...Most of what I heard was what I stated above. Anything I may have missed was mostly either from the first score, or was subdued underscore that really isnt needed, and you're talking about a meager .05% if at all.

The ending of the movie - from the part Optimus is resurrected to the very end - is entirely on the cd. The war is mostly just bits of TF 1 bits...and QUICK bits at that. The scorponok theme? They played it for like 15 seconds when they were launching the airplanes from the carrier...it was an afterthought.

Anyway, All that was needed (for me anyway) to be on the cd was the bit where Megatron was revived, the reprise of New Divide when they resuce Sam, and the SMALL bit where Soundwave releases Ravage. The rest Ive already heard elsewhere.

cheers
