    whaddaya guys think about the in show music of the series so far?

    i think theres been some nice ones that you can tell was derived from other shows (like one ep in particular which i thought mimicked terminator 2's score in parts) but outside of that tinkling electronic feel good music they used im kinda bummed they dont have an identifiable in show tune like G1 had where the bots had that string version of the theme song, and that other tune when theyre rolling that goes DUNDUNDUNDUNDUNNAAAA and decepticons them that goes, DUNDUN DUNDUN DUNADUNADUNADUNAH.

    im not saying they gotta use back the same songs, but ive failed to identify catchy bits in the score so far, could just be me tho. what say you?

    The best music was when Prime stopped the Ark from crashing in the very first episode. Got all dramatic and stuff.

    The rest? Okay. But I enjoy it none the less.

    IMO the best music so far was the DECEPTICON GALACTIC CALL theme.

    Also the Elite Guard theme when they're leaving Earth.

    The music during Megatron's reformatting scene at the end of Megatron Rising part 1

    I hope we hear a lot of awesome background music as the series progresses.

    TF:A Soundtrack

    Am I alone in thinking that the music for Animated Is fantastic?
    I was watching "Mission Accomplished" the other day and the music playing through Megatron's speech was awesome!
    I've also come to notice what I call "Megatron's Theme". It's most prominent here:
    , but it also plays in other episodes and I love it!

    I wanna TF:A soundtrack!!!

    I'd go for a soundtrack, make it free occasional downloads from the officials site though, no point them wasting money packaging & releasing something like that only to sell a handful.

    I find myself constantly humming the tune we heard in the first Headmaster episode.
    When Fanzone tries to change the radio station away from it, only to have it go back.

    That same tune was used a lot in YTV's episode this week (Velocity).

    OMG the G1 music is so awesome.

    I haven't noticed the music in TFA. I guess this means that it's either doing it's job or is pretty forgettable.

    I think it supports the action extremely well, compliments the scenes and everything, but other than the G1 strings version I've not really heard anything mega-memorable. Hopefully, when something BIG happens, we'll get something suitably EPIC. There's a nice piece of music that goes with the resurrection of Megatron, though. I think part of it might be that the music is a bit quieter than the other shows so you don't hear it as much.

    The music in the Bumblebee/Blitzwing chase scene in Velocity made it extra awesome.

    Awesome, awesome music in TFA - one of my favourite things about the show.

    Especial mentions - the drum'n'bass used during the chase in Thrill of the Hunt, the metal riff in the same episode, the string section toward the end of Lost & Found, the first time Soundwave gets boosted and adds some synth bass to his little music box jingle, the b'bm-bm-bm horn stabs when the Autobots stave off the police-bots at the docks (Elite Guard), and, oh criminy!, the music that plays during Transform and Roll Out over the caption 'Fifty Years Later' as we follow the swell of Lake Eerie to the Detroit shoreline.

    Another poster already mentioned that, at Botcon, there was a 'no' to a TFA soundtrack release. Boo.
