Steve provides what the director wants. Simple as that. It's not a surprise that the most beloved Jablonsky scores are for Michael Bay films. Because Bay wants it epic, Bay wants it orchestral, Bay wants it dramatic and emotional. He pushes all buttons and Steve delivers. On the other hand, Peter Berg - the Deepwater director who did a few other movies with Jablonsky - usually goes for sound design scores. In short, he's not as epic and melodic as Bay is. So if you want to blame someone for the fact that you didn't like the Deepwater score, blame Peter Berg.Probably Branderbourg Concerto no. 3Gold is a great term . Amazing musicI totally agree because I though Lego was brilliant but this shows his other side. Dare I say - better than Lego Batman !!!!!Is there any chance to Brazilian fans to see Zimmer's concert in Brazil ???? :)
Lorne strikes gold once again!  I can't stop falling in love with Balfe's musical talent and technique.Really enjoying this soundtrack and glad they released so much music . Very emotional and the more I listen , the more I get into itSounds like 13 Hours was in temp!!!!Just saw the Movie few Hours ago and this is a really Great step back to the First one ! Like the fact that it's like in First one optimus vs megatron and Not some galvatron and his City-eatin ship stuff. When Classic themes Kicks in it feels like 2007 in the Cinema and it is much Fun! A Great direction and I Hope that we get Even more Original stuff in the next one ! <br>Go and See tranformers 5 especially of You saw the First one as a Child or if You just like it and enjoy the Music and Fun of it and don't throw it in the trash like many critics Are doin it ! <br>Yes I totaly Agree with You ! It just don't make Sense Even if musicians would get payed again they would Not lose  Money. As I Said there Are many Bad Scores out there that got played by musicians and orchestra and the fact that there Are still on iTunes and so on Shows that Even These Not so good Scores Are paying out so as You Said it is just unlogical !
Love it too. Great track, very sweet, very tender. I really love the part from 2:49 utill the end.Yup, you're right about the Autobots theme. I liked the fact that they paid an homage to the first score. Could be wrong, but I don't think we got that in the last two movies. It's like they wanted to distance themselves from the first two scores. Which, to be honest, was something I didn't like. So I'm definitely glad that there are few bits from the first score in "The Last Knight". It was great to hear it all while watching the movie itself.No, what @MrZimmerFan meant is Hans took the idea of Jablosky and not that he developed it. Ramin was also inspired on this piece for another one of Game of Thrones.Thank god they did an additional intro in the Interstellar section with heavy organ, just like in the movie. I kind of missed this the previous year, and brought me right back to when I saw Interstellar Live in London.. And with the addition of the Wonder Woman theme, this was the best show ever. Hope he does another tour somewhere in the near future!To me the business case is very unlogical! A limitation of copies makes no sense, because you avoid higher revenues. The damage has already been done, because the TF3 movie is 6 years old and Warner Bros.Music has already lost higher revenues. But even other scores like "Black Hawk down" from Hans Zimmer are not featured in iTunes, but I could buy an analogue copy (CD) in a store.<br><br>@Hybrid Soldier: Where do you have your informations from? Is Steve answering on facebook or is this a quote from an interview?
Why is Hans uncredited? I'll take it that Bumblebee/AllSpark are Steve's themes then.Not at all! ; ) That's one of my favorite tracks as well. I would also throw in the major chord progressions of the Trident theme in "Power of the Sea" and the INSANE electric cello statement of Salazar's theme at 3:00 in "Kill the Sparrow". Great workout tracks!Nop, Hans took the idea from All Spark<br><br>;PReally ? Bumblebee is from Hans ?!?Its funny to read that allot of people think the music is for them, it is not and never will be. The person that has to like and approve the music is the director BAY. The music has to reflect what he wants it too, not what any of you want lol. <br><br>We are lucky we get music releases, lucky

@meta I'm feeling the same way. TF movies have always been flawed but very enjoyable for me thanks to Michael Bay's trademark. But this one... is so bad not even Michael Bay can save it. I really don't know what the screenwriters did in their "collaboration room"... but for sure they didn't collaborate a lot, because this "story" is probably the most disjointed mess I've ever seen.

The saving grace for me was the track "We Have To Go", which plays entirely without cut, that whole scene was pretty bad-ass.

@Ds: Actually I prefer Ender's Game (also released by Varese Sarabande) over P&G (but the movie is cool)
  Transformers - Dark Of The Moon2017-06-25 11:23:42

Pain and Gain is not a bad score, actually it's maybe better than the TF scores, in its own genre.

But it's entirely electronic so I guess there are no musicians to pay!

Also, maybe a lot of releases have the same deal as TF3 and TF4, but so few people buy them, they remain for sale forever because the maximum allowed number of sales is never reached...

I must be the biggest weirdo in all of film score history, because the highlight of DMTNT for me was "I've Come With the Butcher's Bill." It resonated instrumentally, most notably that badass cello (?) at around the 2:35 mark, it was the perfect blend of old and new themes, and best of all, it sounded like a swashbuckling theme. As much as I loved the action cues in the first three, I sometimes felt that they resembled a Latin hell choir more than a traditional pirate piece, especially AWE. It's good listening, but sometimes it sounded more like Gregorian Chanters of the Caribbean. :P
I seriously blast Butcher's Bill out loud on the highway, I love it so much.

I take it back...

Just saw the movie and the only good thing to come out of it is the score....

What the Hell Michael Bay? Who the hell is writing this crap and how the hell did you approve this story? By far the worst of the 5.....and I don't blame Jablonsky at all.

Year there Are some interesting hidden thinks in this Score ! And i Hope that You Are Right and that we will get Even more Original themes in the next one. I Personally Hope that er will get a New arrival to Earth Version !
  Transformers - Dark Of The Moon2017-06-25 00:06:33

Well ok but I don't See a Problem with paying the musicians cause many People would buy it especially the Third one. I mean every other Score gets released These days and many Are Not as half as good as the TF3 score is and it Looks like Even the Bad Scores like pain and gain Are paying of so for me it seems very unnatural and Strange. I guess we have to Hope that they will Release a Soundtrack Box one day like the tresure Collection from Pirates of the caribbean...
  Transformers - Dark Of The Moon2017-06-24 22:45:19

Exactly! How is it possible that a major movie franchise has no consistency in their scores? To me very strange! I downloaded the scores of the old Robocop movies (except Robocop 3 is everything there) although this franchise is "dead". From a FAN point of view I would appreciate the Return of TF3 & TF4 scores.

Hey guys! When listening to it again, I discovered that the first few notes of the Autobot theme is played near the end of History of Transformers. This score really does feel like a return to form for Jablonsky.

Technically Paramount could release the 3rd and 4th scores again, but they would have to pay extra money to the musicians & orchestra, if I understand this correctly.

The EP is still on iTunes because it's only demos I think.
  Transformers - Dark Of The Moon2017-06-24 21:29:25
Alexander
Well it's strange because the score of TF3 is (in my opinion) with the first one the best. I didn't see the deal working cause obviously there are many people out here that would definitely buy it. And with the fourth one, well I do remember one or two weeks after the movie was released there was the full score and a few days later they changed it to the EP version. Very strange and sad especially cause it effects this beautiful score.
  Transformers - Dark Of The Moon2017-06-24 21:18:51

Thanks for sharing! It is a petty that the TF3 is not distributed any more,it makes no sense to me. Hope it re-appears one day because fans want to have a complete selection of scores!

Hybrid, how big is the contribution of Balfe, Mazzarro, Kawczynski in this? Is it more like Hans wrote everything like in Interstellar or is it more like his "Jamming with a band" kind of thing?

@Mephariel, You are right. And it is not exactly a war film. It's more like a suspense thriller. Whether they'll get home (we know they will) but it's more about how they will and how each of them experience this journey.

Steve explained it, they had a certain deal and could only sell a certain number of copies. When it was reached, they had to remove it from digital stores.

The TF4 was sold as an EP in iTunes, no one knows why only 4 (!) tracks are supported. The TF3 original movie score is missing from any online platform I know, Amazon music or even iTunes show no signs about it.

Imho there is a mystery surrounding this music album! I download many scores from recent movies in iTunes, but the score from the most successful TF-movie ever (in box offices) is missing since 6 years?!?!? And the fans receive no explanation!
  Transformers - Dark Of The Moon2017-06-24 20:18:44

It is a great mystery why this score cannot be purchased anywhere! In iTunes only the scores from Transformers 1 & 2 can be downloaded, the TF3 album (the pop compilation) and an TF4 EP(!)

The score from TF3 is still non existent
