oops! my bad (steps on bird bath) I just listened to the scorponok track..never did before. thanks!
No problem... I suggest listening to the entire score for TF1, lots of good stuff on it!
I'm getting a John Powell (Bourne Trilogy) vibe from half of this soundtrack.
Still digging this score... "Heed Our Warning" just blew my mind (though the herb probably helped )
Question for those that have seen the film, wondering what some of the track titles mean...
I've not seen the file, but NEST is the special forces group of Transformers and Human working together (with the likes of Lennox and Epps in it).
Oh, right on thanks... I wonder if NEST is an anagram.
Downloading after I see the movie... can't wait! XD
is it just me or that awesome theme that appears a couple of times is missing form the score CD? the Linkin Park musical one when Ironhide transforms in the beginning of the movie with Lenox standing infront of him and when Bumblebee and Optimus crash through the roof and wall of the warehouse during the scene with Sam?
Picked up the Score at Best Buy today. They only received 2 copies. Good luck finding this baby in the wild. It's amazing.
How much was it?
Well, the score CD is only (a disappointing IMO) 43 minutes of music out of probably 90-100 minutes of music that appears in the film, so...

No, it's there, about a minute and a half through "NEST", and it's already my favourite bit of score of the year. How the hell did they get a Linkin Park rearrangement by a Hans Zimmer farmboy to sound so awe-inspiringly heroic?
To be honest, the entire score has got me seriously reappraising Jablonsky; before I just thought he was a competent but lesser composer from the Klaus Badelt school of functionality, but the RotF score is laudably ambitious in the way it mixes up the musical identity of the series with stuff like "Infinite White", "The Fallen" and "Einstein's Wrong". "Prime" is one of the best examples, though; it's ostensibly very similar to "Optimus" from the first score, but it's been developed to sound about three times as powerful. And, of course, "NEST", which just kicks ass. I didn't think I'd be the one saying it, but Jablonsky's done a stellar job this time.
Because Hans Zimmer helped out a lot on this. I am still convinced that he wrote most of Arrival To Earth.
Klaus Badelt is still the fuckin man.
Is the hardcopy version of the ROTF score going to be discontinued after a while of being released like the first movie's score?
I hated how people were scalping the first movie's score for over $100+ at one point. Thank goodness Amazon had an MP3 download available for purchase of that previous score. Otherwise I never would've been able to afford it to listen.
I got mine at Amazon last week for $9.99. I just checked and it's back up to $13.49.
It is very good but the first one is better and plus the ROTF score is missing quite a few tracks from the movie which includes the Jetfire scene at the Smithsonian. That particular track was quite epic because it includes the heroic Autobot them but with a heavy drum beat with it
I have in my collection both the ROTF album and the Score and I thought it was fantastic I have the Score on my MP3 Player and on my computer and I never get tired of listening to it
Track 1-Prime: sends shivers down my back everytime I listen to it also
Track 14: I rise you fall, 7: Heed our Warning and 9: Tomb of the Primes they all send a shiver down my back
really great scores. NEST was awesome.
Thank you Jablonsky!
