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.

Actually, I think he did mean "voila"--as in "there you have it." He's allowed to have a low opinion of this album if he wants to.

"With over 110-minutes of score, and a tight post-production schedule, there was a lot to get done during the scoring sessions."

(Taken from ScoringSessions)

No wonder everyone wants an extended score! I myself want one now. We only got 45 minutes of the score!

After listening carefully the 1st soundtrack and this one I can honestly admit that it's that bad as I thought in the first place...
Slighlty diferent, more dark but still good enough to be appreciated by a fan of Steve even though I prefer the 1st...

If anyone is interested in getting an expanded score of Steve Jablonsky's Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, a petition has started to convince the music company to release one, like they did for the first movie. Please find below the link to sign it.

@Skyler

With all due respect, i wasn't calling you or anyone that likes more serious films a "douche who spends my sad life watching cultured artsy flicks", i was refering to the guy who said "the general population is stupid and idolizes mediocrity", wich you claimed to be a Mr. Clemmensen. I watch serious films, i watch artsy films, i thouroughly enjoy them, when they're good. One of my favorite films in recent years is "Garden State". And i'm planing on watching "Moon" as it seems to be a very interesting film.
I just don't go to the theatre and pay €6 to watch those unless my friends convince me to.
As for me getting fully psyched watching action-movies, i do. But then that's the whole point of an action movie, you're not supposed to be watching "The Lake House" and go WOW!!! But claiming that just because people enjoyed TF2 they're stupid and mediocre... that pissed me off and so i fired a round
If you took some shrapnel from that particular blast, i'm sorry. It was aimed at that other individual.

On the second point you make, that cue is not on the CD. I'll tell you one thing, if it isn't "Dom and Maria" it is pretty close. Pay atention, i'm refering to "Dom and Maria", wich is track 40 in the unofficial soundtrack. In the official soundtrack that cue is called "With Sympathy" and is slightly different, they mixed a chorus over the music at the section that is (perhaps) used in TF2.

@PTO and anyone else that wants to know how much unreleased music there is in this movie go to the forums, i made a post with a full list.

Like everyone else I'm really hoping for an expanded release of the score.

Also, while some people state that only a couple cues are missing (Megatron revived, Ravage, Scorponok reprise) there is also the first half of the fight between Prime, Megatron and Starscream in the factory when they save Sam, Michaela and Leo which is fantastic!

IMO, that 4 minute rescue / forest fight sequence is the best in the film with Jablonsky's music matching perfectly with Bay's best choreography and shot selection. All aspects were nailed during that part, it was epic and awesome. It's a shame that only an hour into the film we get the best part / fight and that the finale wasn't as strong.

The webmaster of a score reviews website said scores like this and movies like TF2 exist because the general population is stupid and idolizes mediocrity--total @$$hole in my opinion.

Would that be a certain Mr. Clemmensen? :)

westfall reply Replies: 0 || 2009-08-01 00:00:00
Yeah, i'm just a stupid, mediocre guy that goes to the theatre to be entertained by a 147 minute slugfest of giant robots. LOL But quite frankly i prefer to be on the stupid mediocre side and leave the room fully psiched than to be a duche that spends his sad life watching cultured artsy flicks.
If i want culture, i'll read a book or go to a museum. When i see a movie, i want asses being kicked (not that kind of movie, those i see in the confort of my home, in full fledged shame and self loathing :) ), even if they're giant metal asses. TF2 is never going to win point for its brainy content but i'll be damned if it's not one hell of a roller coaster ride.

westfall reply Replies: 0 || 2009-08-01 00:00:00
On a diferent note, and actually relevant to the score discussion, who else thinks the music used when Vevastator begins to climb the pyramid is very, very close to Gears of War 2's "Dom and Maria"? I do.

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-08-01 00:00:00
With regards to what Westfall said two comments ago, I think it's all a matter of personal preference. Some people go to the movies to be entertained, some go to be thrilled, some go to laugh, some go to be emotional moved or inspired. Westfall here has made it clear that he gets fully psyched by watching exciting action-packed blockbusters. As for me, I personally love movies that "stick" with me months after I leave the theatre. I do thoroughly enjoy watching big dumb American action movies, but they just don't stick with me nearly as long as something profound and imaginative like many of today's foreign/art films. That does not necessarily mean that I am a "douche who spends my sad life watching cultured artsy flicks," as westfall suggests, it merely means that I find enjoyment in being intellectually and creativly stimulated. The Fountain, Moon, The Fall, Amelie, Waltz with Bashir - all these films have had a profound effect on me and they are among the best films I've ever seen. Wheras with Transformers 2, all I will care to remember in a few months is that it had some awesome special effects :)

With regards to what Westfall said in his most recent (and indeed more relevant) comment, did that specific sequence make it onto the soundtrack? I haven't heard Jablonsky's score for GoW2 yet, and I can't remember what the music sounded like during that specific moment in the film.
