    Holy crap guys, I just obtained the ultimate collection of Transformers '86 music. It not only has Vince DiCola's movie soundtrack but "Artistic Transformations" and "The Protoform Sessions."

    Please, I suggest to all the music buffs like me-- pick this up any way you can. Hearing some of his demos, his explanations for some of the tunes, alternate tracks that were axed or used in the trailer, and piano versions almost brought me to tears (especially his Matrix demo). It really gives you a sense of his composition process and a better sense of him as a musician.

    Has anyone else listened to these?

    The set contains both of those, plus the solo piano pieces. Amazing work I must say.

    I have the 2 disc Botcon set that just has the complete movie score. Its great to listen to. Anytime I hear some of them I can reply parts of the movie in my mind.

    I find the solo piano stuff really interesting-- cool to see how he boiled down everything to just piano.
