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 music
i 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 2
Guess 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.

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 ?

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"...

@ 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.

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-17 00:00:00
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".
