    Alright, the film series is more or less over, except for some of the toys and merchandise that have yet to be released. So, that brings me to my question;

    Which of the three Scores do you think was the best?

    Personally, I vote for Dark of the Moon because its score had a mixture of sorrow, action and many other things. It is over all just great fun to listen to. The first movie had some great tracks, but a one or two just didn't appeal to me. The same for the Revenge of the Fallen score, except about half the score didn't appeal to my tastes, where as I can happily listen to everything on the Dark of the Moon Score.

    Actually, while we're at it. What would you say were the best and worst songs from the three scores? If you want, you can choose the best in the trilogy as well.

    Best from each

    Transformers - Arrival to Earth
    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - The Shard
    Transformers: Dark of the Moon - No prisoners, only trophies

    Worst from each

    Transformers - Sam at the Lake
    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Precious Cargo
    Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Impress me

    Best in the Trilogy

    Transformers - Arrival to Earth

    Arrival to Earth wins hands down as the best piece from the 3 scores. Still favor the first score TF1 to date...TF3 is a close 2nd.

    Man, sorry but I have to disagree. Infinite White is far from the worst in the ROTF score (it's even one of my favorites in that album).

    TF1 - Arrival to Earth, Scorponok, Optimus, Decepticons, Cybertron
    ROTF - Infinite White, Heed Our Warning, Prime, NEST
    DOTM - Tie between Battle and The Fight Will Be Your Own, Sentinel Prime, There is No Plan, The World Needs you Now, I'm Just the Messenger, Our Fight.

    All in all, I liked the most tracks from DOTM, so I suppose my favorite was DOTM.

    Actually the Only reason I chose Infinite White, is because it
    reminds me of the of the end of the Forest battle, And since Optimus is
    My favorite I find the Song very sad, so I chose the one I don't listen to
    very much, it's not a bad song it's just a sad one,
    I can see why You like, it is a good song:D

    Can't go wrong with the original score. It was my introduction to Jablonsky's music. Reminded me a little of the feeling hearing Michael Giacchino's score on The Incredibles: aka 'this sounds cool, I wonder what else he's done.'

    TF1:
    Best: Arrival to Earth- tonally, it sets the mood for a great montage of scenes. I really love when Jablonsky comes in with the instrumentals after the girl's parents rush out of the house, and the way that song leads into Ironhide and Prime's scanning. Though the instrumentals when Prime and the others transform reminded me of the feeling of Alan Silvestri's intro music in Back to the Future when we see the DeLorean for the first time.

    Least-favorite: Deciphering the Signal: it's kind of repetitive.

    TF2:
    Preferred: NEST- I'm a junkie for adrenaline-pumping music, though this sounds like it could have been in a Mountain Dew commercial in the 90's...EXTREEMMMEE!!

    Least-Preferred: The Shard- wish it held together more cohesively. It almost feels like a demo reel track.


    TF3:
    Favorite: Battle-this was a tough decision, because it was either this or 'It's Our Fight.' This wins out because it reminds me a bit of the adrenaline rush feeling I got in TF1 when the Autobots scattered when Sector 7 sent their backup units their way. Plus, the track stays in action constantly throughout.

    Least Favorite: Impress Me- it feels like a slightly reworked version of 'Sam at the Lake' from the first movie.

    TF1:
    Best: Arrival to Earth - no contest
    Honorable Mentions: You're a Soldier Now, Optimus, The AllSpark, Scorponok, Sector 7, Bumblebee Captured
    Least favorite: Witwicky - doesn't really do anything for me

    ROTF:
    Best: NEST - really cool intro theme and great use of New Divide
    HMs: Prime, Tomb of the Primes
    Least Favorite: The Shard

    DOTM:
    Best: Sentinel Prime - really stirring motif for a great character
    HMs: Battle, Dark Side of the Moon, It's Our Fight, No Prisoners Only Trophies, There is No Plan, I Promise
    Least Favorite: Impress Me - again, not a bad track, just not reminiscent of the most important parts of the film

    Dotm had some great reworkings of some of the past material and some great new originals like Battle and Sentinal's theme. Easily my favorite right now.

    I actually love Sam at the Lake. It fits the scene that it was written for very well and is simply pleasant and fun to listen to.

    I still like the first movie's score the best. The Transformers movies have the best film scores since Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
