would love to help out, but the video/track is blocked :/Think about Gemini Man, the score come out the same day as the movie (in that case, 11th October), and the details come the same week.<br><br>We'll likely get final details towards the end of the week or early next week. I guess I'm just a little surprised that it's taken this long. The movie had surprise screenings either yesterday or the day before, so it seems like everything's pretty final.Sorry, that is the wrong link above (film version)<br><br>This is the track I'm talking about. Does anyone recognize this version.<br><br>https://youtu.be/etkri6OKLpEThere is an expanded score album with the track called "Sniper/Border Post". It is different from the piece used in the film. Does anyone know the true identity of that track. I like the synth sound and the male vocal singing/wailing/crying in this cue.<br><br>https://youtu.be/DbENmej_cH0
But the scores comes out in 1th NovemberThe movie is out this Wednesday in some territories."In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is UNMEMORABLE"<br><br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaand your whole analysis falls flat right there ! :PThanks Edmund.<br><br>@PaulH I am not meaning to say that Balfe cannot compose good music. There are compositions that I like: the Picasso theme is creative and well-written. Just that I find his arrangements of others more compelling usually than his own material.<br><br>An example that is good of this is kung fu panda. His arrangements of themes are really fun and energetic. In the third one he writes the "father and son" theme, it's okay but it's harmonically basic and the melody is unmemorable. Contrast to Hans: the Po theme and Spirit theme are precise, fun, harmonically clever, and memorable. But his score cues sometimes feel lacking: his transitions are clunky, the bridge material is uncreative and basic. <br><br>It must be so much fun to work on those projects together. Coming up with idea and hearing what someone can turn it into, or getting to play with someone's idea without the pressure of starting from scratch.And also, be prepared for more Studio Time for the score
Tom said in his Twitter: 'Details very soon'<br><br>Altough, is only a week awayThe Nils Frahm track was released years agoNo one is mentioning "Says" from Nils Frahm. What a masterpiece of music. Love how it develops and getting so emotional even with that futuristic sound-effect. One of the highlights of this score, with those tracks Cerbei mentioned.Balfe is a great arranger but an even better composer.Beyond Two Souls is still one of the best game soundtracks.<br><br>I must have watched another movie in regards to Balfe filling in the gaps - that makes no sense?The soundtrack released seems not to relate to what was actually used in the film.Balfe “gap” music is featured much more and works brilliantly<br>
Last night I was talking to Lorne, and he told me that in principle there is intention to release the full score.I'd be very interested to hear the supposed Balfe complete score to picture where he apparently sought to elevate it, as someone here put it. The Richter is pitch-perfect and works massively well to picture and, not dissing Balfe at all, his stuff is literally 'additional music' to fill the gaps.Aplusle, that's really well put actually.Don't feel bad. You've just summed up why Hans and Lorne make a good team. Lorne is by all accounts a fantastic arranger and can bring out the best in others' ideas but I sometimes find his own compositions are a bit basic or leave me cold. Hans on the other hand always nails the theme and the concept but his scoring to picture to me feels clunky and a bit amateurish, especially when the music is dense. <br><br>Both super talented in their own ways. :-)Is there anyway o get sheet music for Into the pie machine for orchestra?

Can someone who has heard the whole album kinda give us a track by track description of the score? Things like pace, and instruments used. Also like what themes are used and how often they appear through out. Or if its just easier, maybe just give a comparisson of what each track sounds similar to in RC world.

The "Prime" theme is overused on the CD but the actual "Prime" track alone worth the price of the whole album in my opinions.

D A R T H reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-18 00:00:00
For the "good" track, here my 1st try :

01 - prime
08 - the fallen's arrival
04 - the shard
03 - N.E.S.T.
07 - heed our warning
10 - forest battle
06 - infinite white
09 - tomb of the primes
02 - einstein's wrong
05 - the fallen
11 - precious cargo
13 - i claim your sun
12 - matrix of leadership
14 - i rise, you fall

what do u think about it ?

Only 43 min !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We want complete score for the 1 and 2!

Al Bundy reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-18 00:00:00
Amazon saids "The Album" so i think its just the album with a behind the scenes bonus disc, or maybe a making of with linkin parks new song "new divide"...

I think this 2cd edition will be the song cd+an advertisement dvd with maybe 1 or 2 making of shorts.

@ DemonStar,

I think it's just a DVD with videoclips... or the score and the soundtrack with a dvd in one or something...

Delete the space between the F and G in "B0029Z8KF G" and it works. :)

Will keep an eye on that page to be sure.

The over score is just OK for me. Nothing great compared to the first one. I am really disappointed with the final outcome of this score. There is only 2 or 3 tracks that even hints of the original transformer theme.

Good lord, you guys are such hypocrites! You haven't heard the full score either, and already you're bashing it and people who are judging it. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, but you should at least have the common decency to reserve judgement until you've heard it in full.

@Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
I've rated only the album with its music and I think when I'll see the movie, my opinion would change about this THE FULL SCORE! but I unterstand this rating here for the album NOT the full score, because on this album I think the choiced tracks aren't the best ones from movie... we'll see...

@ Miles

The score is already out there, in one form or another, i'm listening to it right now.


@ everyone reading

Come on, guys, Transformers Score was a masterpiece in itself and bennefited from 2 other factors:
1 - We saw the movie, heard the music in it and loved it;
2 - They made us wait months for the official release;
Scores are made to fit the visuals in the film, judging this score without that visual reference is not fair.
Granted, the first one was filled with jems, "Autobots","Arrival(...)", "Optimus", "Bumblebee", "Skorponok", awesome themes that stand out, i'm willing to bet many of these will return in one form or another (I Rise, You Fll" is a fine example), and if so, i would love to have those on CD too.
But if you have 44 minutes to pick, will you give the fans something new or new takes on the old themes, even if they sound better than some cues in this score?
As i previously said, i take this score as an add-on to the first and once you see the movie, listen to this again, and i bet you'll like it a whole lot more.
And who here doesn't love "Prime" already?

Ah, another theme re-ash of sorts from the first score, listen to "Einstein Is Wrong" and tell me if you don't listen hints of Sam's theme in there.

@westfall

I agree with you totally, man! This is just what I thought after hearing those clips. This score is a grest add-on to the first. Of course, it is very good thing they gave us new material and not just variations of old cues. So, even if it is 44 min long, this score is a GREAT SECOND PART OF TRANSFORMERS! If Jablonsky would return to score the third one, we would have a very nice, if not excellent, MUSICAL TRILOGY, rich with themes almost like STAR WARS or something similar!

Why I can hear Sarah Connor Chronicles in this score?

I think it would nice fit to the screen.

Chris reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
I remember when I first heard the score from the first movie before I even saw the film, and latched onto the incredible themes (Autobots, The All Spark, Optimus, Bumblebee, Arrival to Earth). My point is the Prime theme never reaches any one of those heights. Its derivative, and sounds almost "silly". I love the first score, and maybe I expected more rehashing, but not just "rehashing" for the sake of it. I expected the old themes in new rhythms and styles that expound on the sound Jablonsky already created. This score misses the mark. But like I said, maybe all the rest just got left off because it wasn't new.

I'm really disappointed about this score or better said, from this album - some good music on the album, but the most isn't from the actionscenes and hasn't any potential for re-listen for me! I'm sorry - for me: one listen and then take-off from my iPod

DemonStar reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
NEST = "Not Expertly Sewn Together" :D

Anyway, sounds pretty fun so far. Choir sounds different from the first score but still nice.

Hmm, after listening a few times to the whole album I think it's a good score but Transformers 1 was a lot better when it comes to themes or epicness.

Also it's a shame that there is only 40 minutes and chances are high that all the good stuff is once again left out of the album.

This album resembles the Gears Of War 2 soundtrack. Same ambience, tricks and effects are in place here.

Still a good effort and surely worth of 8/10.

Why in the world have 77 people rated this score already? What, we hear a 30 sec. sample and you think you can rate the entire score off of that? This is pitiful. One thing is certain, Jablonsky does not deserve a 77/100 for this score.

Chris reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
I have to say I'm pretty disappointed with this score. Other than about 2 minutes of remixed (or rehashed) material from the first score, the rest is missing the thematic edge that the first one had. Even The Island had a great theme mixed in with its soundscapes, while this seems to not have a recognizable one. The new Prime theme is weak compared to the old stuff. Hopefully they just wanted to put new stuff on the CD and all the great themes are in the movie!

Track 3 must be written in capital letters as it stands for "Networked Elements: Supporters and Transformers".
