@Ds: Actually I prefer Ender's Game (also released by Varese Sarabande) over P&G (but the movie is cool)Pain and Gain is not a bad score, actually it's maybe better than the TF scores, in its own genre.<br><br>But it's entirely electronic so I guess there are no musicians to pay!<br><br>Also, maybe a lot of releases have the same deal as TF3 and TF4, but so few people buy them, they remain for sale forever because the maximum allowed number of sales is never reached...I must be the biggest weirdo in all of film score history, because the highlight of DMTNT for me was "I've Come With the Butcher's Bill." It resonated instrumentally, most notably that badass cello (?) at around the 2:35 mark, it was the perfect blend of old and new themes, and best of all, it sounded like a swashbuckling theme. As much as I loved the  action cues in the first three, I sometimes felt that they resembled a Latin hell choir more than a traditional pirate piece, especially AWE. It's good listening, but sometimes it sounded more like Gregorian Chanters of the Caribbean. :P <br>I seriously blast Butcher's Bill out loud on the highway, I love it so much.one more question. Who wrote the Bumblebee theme?Does an instrumental version of BATTLE CRY exist?? 0.o
Awesome Thx.which tracks are suites, cuz it seems like a bunch are...?Love Izzy!I take it back...<br><br>Just saw the movie and the only good thing to come out of it is the score....<br><br>What the Hell Michael Bay? Who the hell is writing this crap and how the hell did you approve this story? By far the worst of the 5.....and I don't blame Jablonsky at all.There's also a little hint in "Code Red" too...
Year there Are some interesting hidden thinks in this Score ! And i Hope that You Are Right and that we will get Even more Original themes in the next one. I Personally Hope that er will get a New arrival to Earth Version !Well ok but I don't See a Problem with paying the musicians cause many People would buy it especially the Third one. I mean every other Score gets released These days and many Are Not as half as good as the TF3 score is and it Looks like Even the Bad Scores like pain and gain Are paying of so for me it seems very unnatural and Strange. I guess we have to Hope that they will Release a Soundtrack Box one day like the tresure Collection from Pirates of the caribbean...Exactly! How is it possible that a major movie franchise has no consistency in their scores? To me very strange! I downloaded the scores of the old Robocop movies (except Robocop 3 is everything there) although this franchise is "dead". From a FAN point of view I would appreciate the Return of TF3 & TF4 scores.Lea Halalela on CD “RHYTHM of the PRIDE LANDS“ from 1995;...<br>Frankfurt show was amazing, Leipzig tooHey guys! When listening to it again, I discovered that the first few notes of the Autobot theme is played near the end of History of Transformers. This score really does feel like a return to form for Jablonsky.
Technically Paramount could release the 3rd and 4th scores again, but they would have to pay extra money to the musicians & orchestra, if I understand this correctly.<br><br>The EP is still on iTunes because it's only demos I think.Well it's strange because the score of TF3 is (in my opinion) with the first one the best. I didn't see the deal working cause obviously there are many people out here that would definitely buy it. And with the fourth one, well I do remember one or two weeks after the movie was released there was the full score and a few days later they changed it to the EP version. Very strange and sad especially cause it effects this beautiful score.Thanks for sharing! It is a petty that the TF3 is not distributed any more,it makes no sense to me. Hope it re-appears one day because fans want to have a complete selection of scores!<br><br>Greetings from Southampton/EnglandHybrid, how big is the contribution of Balfe, Mazzarro, Kawczynski in this? Is it more like Hans wrote everything like in Interstellar or is it more like his "Jamming with a band" kind of thing?@Mephariel, You are right. And it is not exactly a war film. It's more like a suspense thriller. Whether they'll get home (we know they will) but it's more about how they will and how each of them experience this journey.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I just noticed under Dom Lewis' composer page a cue from X-Men: Days of Future Past. That's really interesting, especially considering the ghostwriting rumors that have always surrounded John Ottman. I wonder how that happened?


Adam2014-10-20 04:21:44
You're right, Edmund! It seems to be the first half of "Do What You Were Made For". Thanks for pointing this out.


Hybrid Soldier2014-10-20 08:56:45
I found this at BMI, surprising indeed... He just helped out for a week on it, working on a couple of cues, which then got rearranged by Ottman...


Adam2014-10-20 16:23:16
Cool, hanks for that info Hybrid! Do you know if there's any other credits?


Hybrid Soldier2014-10-20 16:34:14
For Days of Future Past ?

From what I saw yeah looks like the additionals are getting royalties lol... But just go to BMI.com, the repertoire search section, search Ottman John V, and have fun...


Adam2014-10-20 18:39:14
Ya I found a bunch! Thanks! :D


polob2014-10-20 22:44:32
and how we can hear the tracks from BMI ?


Hybrid Soldier2014-10-20 23:43:35
You can't it's just cue sheets... not cues... lol


Adam2014-10-20 23:45:31
polob, you don't need to anyway! Every track on the OST is listed on BMI :)


polob2014-10-22 23:27:19
and how Hybrid can have the cue??

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 6 || 2014-05-15 15:57:24
Has anyone noticed how much the main theme of this sounds like the Jade theme from The Rock? Just listen to "Ocellata Turkeys" - it sounds exactly like "Jade" if orchestrated by John Powell.


Mike2014-05-15 16:18:16
Wow. You're right! That's really funny.


Mike2014-05-15 16:22:28
Things like this make me wonder why Hans Zimmer got accused of plagiarism with the Gladiator Waltz, while stuff like this, much more blatant, are able to slide by undetected. Maybe it's because Zimmer is more popular than Lewis, but it's weird either way (or another example is the Luke and Leia theme from National Treasure 2....lol).


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-15 16:39:09
Maybe it's because the Gladiator Waltz is a lengthy piece that's clearly written in the style of Holst, whereas this cue has a melodic similarity, but a very different "feel" to it.

I think the Gladiator/Holst thing is a little overblown, though. Sure, the similarity is there, but it's not exactly lawsuit-worthy...


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-15 17:11:56
Yeah just like Broken Arrow and that Edelman thing was no lawsuit-worthy either... But it nearly happened...

Anyway the Jade thing is real but you know, it's not like it's intentional, yeah the melody is the same but 2 composers can come up with the suite of notes, can't they ? :P


Edmund Meinerts2014-05-15 17:44:55
Did Edelman have issues when that theme popped up again in Pirates of the Caribbean? :p


Hybrid Soldier2014-05-15 18:57:31
If you ask me Edelman can go f... himself big time ! ;)

Edmund Meinerts reply Replies: 7 || 2014-01-25 13:54:29
Sorry to be such a nitpicker, but if Beth Caucci is only credited for "additional arrangements," what does that mean for the cues where she's credited? Did she do any actual composing?


Hybrid Soldier2014-01-25 16:23:34
The cues are Dom... She just added some things to it (string sections, percs, whatever)...


Edmund Meinerts2014-01-25 20:23:04
Ah, okay. So if I understand it correctly, the "architecture" of the cues is pure Dom, but some of the embellishments/orchestrations/whatever are put in by Beth. All right. I think I'll go with a 75%/25% split then (don't ask...my ratings system is ridiculous and it's the reason why I ask all these questions).

Fun score by the way! Helps make up for Powell's absence. Although the theme makes me think of The Rock ("Jade")...


Hybrid Soldier2014-01-25 21:01:09
Actually such a rating system does exist in cue sheet to determine royalties !

I've seen it very rarely but for instance some Wreck-It Ralph cues, which are Jackman 75% Lewis 25% or whatever...


Mike2014-01-26 16:25:38
Really? What other RCP scores have those? That could be interesting to know for folks like MacArthur... ;) No offense, MacArthur.


Hybrid Soldier2014-01-26 16:43:02
Iron Man, partly...


POTC 4, but that's of no use...


Mike2014-01-26 16:44:18
I'm sorry, but why's POTC4's of no use?


Hybrid Soldier2014-01-26 17:13:47
Because it's just HZ / Badelt / Neely / RyG ! ;)

Hybrid Soldier reply Replies: 6 || 2013-10-16 19:09:06
First Dom Lewis score, can't wait to hear that ! :)


Edmund Meinerts2013-10-16 20:06:08
If this score doesn't sound very, very much like John Powell and Henry Jackman I'll be quite surprised. :p

Sounds amazing. Can't wait for this. :)


Hybrid Soldier2013-11-01 00:13:38
Actually, this score REALLY is love child of Powell & Jackman !

95% Orchestral only.


Very nice effort... :)


Frisbee2013-11-04 08:03:37
I concur Hybrid Soldier's statement. Fans of John Powell's works for Blue Sky Animated Studio's movies will certainly be pleased with this. (Personally, I am digging all the wordplay in track titles too!)


Russel2013-12-27 16:33:08
This got a CD Release, finally. I'm very glad to see that it got a release like that. It needed a proper release.
