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.

Yeah, it's been a while. All i can say, and i apologise for the profanity, is that life is a bitch with no sense of mercy. As i've stated previously i lost all the data due to a HD "malfunction". I'm working on redoing all of it from scratch but between work and many, many... MANY... personal problems, i haven't had as much time as i'd wish. Sorry for the psychotic rant. As soon as i have something remotely ready, i'll let you know.

Hey westfall,
Do you have any guess of when the Revenge of the Fallen (Complete Score) could possibly be done.
Take your time, but it has been a little more than a year.

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2010-07-06 00:00:00
On the official site when you go to the score, there is an asterisk * next to "Matrix Of Leadership" and "I Claim Your Sun". Anyone know why?

No worries, that's okay. I just wasn't sure if people knew that or not.

@Scoremaster

Not to rain on your parade but that track was confirmed as being part of the RoTF score a while back and discussed here, long before the other 3 tracks surfaced at the Magic Music Box site. Hence my mention of only 18 tracks released a couple of posts back, being the 14 from the score, this track and the 3 from MMB.

Hey guys... I was just watching ROTF, and I reconginzed a piece of music from the film that's been released, but not in the album.

http://www.transformersmovie.com/choose/score.mp3
^^ This piece of music starts when the Autobots are getting shipped off to Diego Garcia, and goes to about when Leo runs back to Simmons on the phone. Not anything too important, I just didn't think that piece of music was from the film, and it turned out to be.

Thanks a bunch! I'll look into that.

Just a correction to my previous post. The listing on this site is from the official score, i saw a post with the complete score list and got my wires crossed. Sorry.

westfall reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-28 00:00:00
OK, let me try to help you there. The track in the official release are named differently from those in the "complete" OST, so searching for "Dom and Maria" won't cut it. The ones i have are
- Official release comprising 27 tracks - Track 21 - "With Sympathy" run time 2:53
- Complete score comprising 52 tracks - Track 40 - "Dom and Maria" run time 3:27

As i've said they are the same track but in the official release they trimed it slightly and added the exagerated (IMO) vocals. Strangely the one listed on this site is the Complete Score (i.e. bootleg) and not the official. Go to that page and read the last comment by Brad, where it sheds a bit more info about this particular track.

As for wich score to choose, if you already have the official release and you like what you hear, just go ahead and get the Complete score. It has more music and, as we've seen (or heard) even the tracks that are present in both scores can be quite different.

I have a question to ask about the "Gears of War 2" soundtrack, actually. I downloaded the commercial release version through Itunes, but it doesn't seem to have "Dom and Maria" on it. Which version would you guys think is better, the complete OST, or the commercial one?

westfall reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-27 00:00:00
@Dingmaster

Yeah, i agree, the feel is there. There is a track called "Dom and Maria" (can't recall what its called on the official release) that is almost a perfect match to the music heard when Devastator starts climbing the pyramid in RoTF. In the official release the track has an extra layer of chorus (a bit over-the-top, IMO).

Dakota reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-26 00:00:00
Well, by God please take your time. Hopefully it will be better than the one I tried posting. It was just God awful. If yours can be any better, don't rush =)

westfall reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-26 00:00:00
The problem with that release is that it seems to be just the music cut and then passed through some "karaoke" filter that partially removes the vocals but also distorts the music. Mine is actually extracted from the 5.1Ch mix. What this means is that it has almost all vocals removed (Optimus is the most present but with a voice like that its to be expected) but there are still a good number of SFX and you do loose some depth is sound. But until something more official or someone with better resources and skills comes along (i'm a total amateur in this) it will have to do.

Do you guys know that Gears of War 2 by Steve Jablonsky has the Transformers feeling to it, event though scored differently.

Also, for those who want contact with him, here is the link:

That release may be weak but at least the guy gave it a shot. I haven't had enough time to mix my version yet but i'll let you know.

@HGW4
I'm with you, man. If they don't want to invest in producing a CD release why not release full scores online? I would buy it. But for now, as far as RoTF goes, we're stuck at 18 tracks and that DVD rip.
A Shame. Much like the artbook that was supposed to come out after RoTF, that would have been sweet.
