what the hell is Quaker steak and lube????I disagree on Catwoman. I love Zimmer's theme and I thought it is one of his most underrated themes.Loved the new tracks!<br><br>Hans & Chris really did something special.<br><br>I enjoyed the Tenet score, but honestly Ludwig's work doesn't compare to Zimmer's. I just hope they work together again instead of Chris choosing Ludwig as his main collaborator from now on.Agreed.<br><br>I don’t know, TDKR feels a little oppressive to me in comparison with BB and TDK , probably as a result of Nolan’s musical tastes veering away from symphonic to more abstract. Reading the new book on Nolan gives me the impression that he has a very similar approach to his music as he does his filmmaking. With that said though, TDKR is still a solid conclusion to the franchise. Bane’s theme is excellent and the culmination of the various “Bat-Themes” do feel well earned. Catwoman’s theme is solid, but for some reason is dropped from most of the movie in favor of the repeating two-note phrase.<br><br>@Moggyman<br>Honestly I feel as if JNH’s work on the first two Hunger Games sequels showed a strong improvement in writing and theme building. The last score was a bit too much of a pastiche, but orchestrally a stronger fit than the first one. And “Crimes of Grindelwald” is easily one of the best sequel scores in the past few years (alongside Star Wars and HTTYD). Unfortunately we still don’t have a good album situation for that though. -_-Counterpoint: I liked Crimes of Grindelwald more than the first Fantastic Beasts. And forget Hanging Tree - "Air Raid Drill" from the first and "Sewer Attack" from the second Mockingjay are the best cues from that series. Plus, JNH honestly hasn't worked on that many sequels so we don't really have enough to go on here. <br><br>I think having JNH on board for Catwoman would have done wonders for this score. Hans' theme is okay, but feels like a bit of an afterthought compared to Bane.
TDK & TDKR have amazing theme suites.<br><br>But as for the scores in film, they don't even get close to Batman Begins !I like Tom but idk he's gone downhill in my book. Alita was boring, i was over the moon excited for Terminator cause that was a perfect mix and it was disappointed big time. I'd love to hear Steve Jablonsky tackle that and get back to being as great as he used to, he has been phoning it in big time latelyOk, before I eat my words, JNH did create the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay p1 which was good, but nothing else other than that in the sequels.For being the so called "weakest", it's very good. And if you think that Bane's theme is repetitive, I would say the same about the Joker's theme in TDK (to me they are both good though). <br><br>Now in all fairness, JNH could have probably added good material to the score since he's a genius, but I personally think he doesn't do well on sequels. Sure, in TDK he gave harvey dent a theme that resonated with his character (but was similar to material already used in BB). Yet, if you look at his work in the hunger games, its seems to me that he couldn't bring something both new and compelling to the sequels as he did in the first movie. I will agree with you that Batman Begins has the best music of the series though.After re-listening to this one, it's clearly the weakest of the trilogy. Of course it's not bad, the new themes are pretty good (though I think Bane's theme is a bit too repetitive and dry at times), there's still emotional moments, but JNH's absence really left a hole in this score.<br><br>I get to an extent that's the point, that all of Bruce's potential for a happy life is gone, but even the emotional tracks to me have nowhere near the emotional resonance that JNH's themes brought to the films. <br><br>"Come With Me" is the best example, where the slow emotional Selina Kyle chords just don't leave much of an impact. Definitely could have used JNH's "Courthouse Pt. 1" or the main theme from "Bruce Left For Dead" to emphasize Bruce's giving up of a quiet life. <br><br>Of course I still appreciate the way the 2 note motif is developed into a theme of its own, as well as the score as a whole, but then you get tracks like "Many Forms of Immortality" which just emphasize how much more effective the thematic work in Batman Begins was.
It could also be Tom, who worked on Run All Night, and is already an established DC composer<br>Either way I'll be happyI lowkey think James is gonna score the Black Adam movie. it's the same director from Jungle Cruise so I'm sure he'll be brought along for itsameNo no, it's just a fake rumor. I was just responding to that MusoPT guy who made it sound like it's totally inconceivable that Balfe could ever be replaced.Wait!<br>So has Balfe been replaced due to having other projects?<br>I thought it had been completed?
Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.

@ Richard Mrowczynski

what 2 disc album are you talking about?

Richard Mrowczynski reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-05 00:00:00
I really enjoyed this soundtrack, as i do for the original Transformers Soundtrack. The only neagtive I have to say about it is that is is not very long i.e I think more tracks could have been added. I hope there is enough material there to do an expanded 2disc album like as was done for Transformers 1.
The music is deep and can evoke emotion. its fantastic!

Great! This one is still not rated by Hz.com. Let's put 1/10. I think there isn't anything good except for the mediocre Main Theme composed for the 1st movie, so it couldn't be honestly rated more than 1/10.

Is there a behind the scenes in the Score recording sessions? or any of the music scoring process?

Congrats for the score.


I think I hear some granular synthesis going on in some parts...? would be great to know if it´s really that. I am happy to say that listening to the score and sound design will help me put a bit out of this ¨feel¨ into a piece that I am writing right now. It is interesting how much of romanticism is printed on Film music but also a few things from contemporary music. This score gives so much to think about in what is missing in contemporary ¨academic¨ music in a way. Specially in ¨electroacustic music¨

Congratulations again.

I love the work that you guys do in movies. If it wasn't for the score the movies would be nothing. I always buy the score after the movie and relive the whole movie without watching. GREAT JOB!!!

I loved the movie. It was nothing but amazing cgi effects. Mudflap and his brother Skids were funny. All in all, I can't wait for the 3rd movie to come out.

On Steve Jablonsky's channel site (fan made); you can hear a wonderous extended, "Bumblebee Captured" theme. Where is it from? Here's the site:<br><br>http://www.steve-jablonsky.ch/<br><br>Keep clicking play music until it plays the right theme.

Finally, after watching the movie: The score as used for the movie is much better! :) I'm hoping for a "more music" release! There's some of great reuse of the old themes! :)

the clip i heard we're parts of "Autobots" from the Transformers score, "Prime" from this score and "My Name Is Lincoln" from The Island score.

@wow

The fourth clip is "Dom and Maria" from Gears of War 2 score. As for the clip i said was "Autobots" it is actually "I Rise, You Fall" from Revenge of The Fallen.

Josh reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-29 00:00:00
I enoyed the score thoroughly. I noticed they strayed from the original theme of the autobots and decepticons within the movie as a theme. Great mix of electronic pads and synths with traditional orchestral stuff. I always enjoy seeing Hans and Steve mesh minds. great stuff.

I hope Jablonsky or the record company are looking to this site and many other sites and reviews so they will see all the complaining EVERYWHERE that we want MORE music and esp the old themes.

Please people, the music is there. Just release it. Even if it's in digital form only!

Usually it's a few people complaining about too less music being released, but in this case almost the whole internet is complaining and asking for a PROPER release...

basaterd reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-29 00:00:00
movie employs alot of rehashing of the Shard music.

Also NEST and NEW DIVIDE Bridge...

ALSO the original themes employed were quick and not very noteworthy - original album showcased them better.

ALSO - some songs on ROTF cd are shorter cuts than represented on film (FALLEN ARRIVAL is extended on film)

only piece i caught missing from cd was Megatron resurrection and ravage bit....

the released cd pretty much has all the music, save extensions, underscore, ravage theme, megtron theme...

@ Badguy

Prime is used as part of several cues in the film with different arrangements, many tracks in the CD have it, but the album version itself is not in the movie. 2 or 3 scenes have a close rendition, though.

@ A Sentient Being

Re-used tracks from the 1st film:
"Sam at the Lake" -> Sam's first scene with his parents; used again when Judy get high and goes on the rampage in college;
"Witwicky" (or one of the related themes like "Witwicky House") -> Sam meets Leo; used again when Sam, Mikaela, Simmons and Leo invade the Air and Space Museum (Edited together with a clip from "Camaro on the Run") and again in Egypt, 1st when Simmons is on the phone with Lennox and then when Sam discovers the 3 Kings..
These themes are unchanged, just like they were in the first film

The other reused themes from the 1st score are all different arrangements. These include "Arrival to Earth", "Autobots", "Optimus" (or "Bumblebee Captured"), "Bumblebee" (or "The Allspark) and "Scorponok".

When i watched it in the theatre i was too distracted enjoying the movie to note anything. Until i get a better soundclip this is the best i can do. If anyone is interested in a full rundown of the music of the film, i'll post it but it will be a big-ass post.

Do note, there are a lot of NR's (Non-Released) cues in that rundown, i named some, others i just described the best i can, i didn't write any timmings down but the order is chronological. I just got a better audio file so any list i have is subject to change. So, i'll start writting this in about 10 hours, if admin have any issues, let me know.
