I didn't see any feedback on this and thought I'd post a new thread. If I missed it mods, please close this one. Thanks! Picked it up at Walmart yesterday and I've jamming out to it since then It really brought back some memories of seeing the 86 movie for the first time, and then getting the soundtrack a few years later. My personal thoughts: - I realize many think the '86 soundtrack is outdated and corny due to the 80's metal bands and sounds on those particular songs on the album. Personally I love 80's rock and love the songs. Are they cheesy? Oh hell yeah you'd better believe they are. But there's something about those crunching guitars and thumping drums that will always remind me of the TF movie, since that was my first real exposure to that kind of music (my parents are very religeous, and just liten to church music). Whether or not you like those songs will all boil down to personal taste. -Lion's theme song rawks my sawks. I still remember the drum beat crescendo intro from when I was sitting in the theater at age 5. That was also the first drum beat I sat down and played when I started playing drums...so the song has a little sentimental value to me - Vince DiCola is a great composer. I listened to the instrumental/ electronic scores with just as much interest as I did the ones with vocals. I actually plan to do an arrangement of a medley of his TFTM work in my drumline genre, it hit me that hard. Great great work. - The bonus tracks are AWESOME to have. Unicron's theme, Moon Base II and Megatron Must Be Stopped parts 1 & 2 are more spectacular scores by DiCola. The only track that I didn't really get into was the alternate Transformers theme song by Stan Busch. It has some nice reprises of Vince DiCola's scores from the movie, but thats about it. Overall for $12 I think it's a great value. If your old cassette (or 8 track! ) is worn out, this is a great CD to have for the price and the memories.
