this is ridiculous... first the official release, then we had extended / expanded / almost Complete / the full complete score / music from recording sessions / the complete recording sessions with alternate, unused, unreleased, uncomposed, unexisting tracks but simply the film version of the decepticon's theme is still not available (frenzy hacks air force one)
I wonder if anyone could provide the information for what other composers worked on this score. I'm curious to see if any one of them might have posted some music that has yet to be found on any of the million expanded bootlegs out there.
...And if not a total list of credits, at least some kind of list of the other composers who wrote for this score.
Main Themes/Music Composed by: STEVE K JABLONKSY STEVE K JABLONKSY & LORNE BALFE
TREVOR MORRIS LORNE BALFE
Alex, I think he meant who composed what, exactly. We can see the credits listed above. But we can't see who wrote each theme/cue
Ah, yes, thanks for clarifying that a bit. I see now Alex was just being a smart ass. Yeah, Hybrid Soldier can usually provide the credits to all the tracks and since this has been out for a while, it seems like an okay thing to do.
Really, I was curious to know if there were a whole bunch of unlisted composers like there are for the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I'm not even sure this site lists every single composer who wrote additional music for Pirates.
I'm sure I won't ever find anything as I think we aren't going to get any more Transformers music than what we've acquired thus far. Nevertheless, it would be nice to see to the credits listed for this movie.
People have asked repeatedly (I think I have once or twice) to get the credits for this. Is it so unreasonable to request it? I mean, there are scores on here that are really not high-priority and yt the credits for said scores are listed. This is one of my favorite film scores of all time, I would like the credits please. Too much to ask?
Yes, Papapalpatine. I agree with you 100%. I would like the credits for this score. AS WELL AS Revenge of the Fallen & Dark of the Moon!!!!!!
Woah...woah. Let's not get too demanding there, Agntdman. From what I've seen in the past, they'll only list the credits for stuff that's been out for a long time. Hybrid JUST RECENTLY posted the credits for the first Pirates of the Caribbean, and that's bee out for over 8 years!
*It is nice to know that Scorponok was co-written with Trevor Morris, though. :p
Mmmm Trevor Morris, oooooooh yeaaaah.
Uck. Fan-wankery in the extreme, D.
Sherlock Holmes, On Stranger Tides, The Dark Knight (no on it's official page, but someone posted it) WWII in HD and At world's End are just some of the few which are under 8 years old and have credits. I wouldn't even call these movies old yet.
It's simple : there's no details anywhere to find who did what... :S
Ah...Well, thank you Hybrid. I suppose that answer will have to do.
Ok, so......how about Revenge of the Fallen? Or....Dark of the Moon? No? Let me guess, credits don't exist for those either, hmm?
You guys need to do some of the legwork and check ASCAP and composer interviews. That's where most of this info comes from.
Every single credit is known for TF2.
TF3, it's just too soon !
@Bondo: yeah, sure we could, but we don't have the authority or ability to edit the pages on this website--people like Hybrid do. I don't want to have to keep a page bookmarked just to look up who composed what or a Word document dedicated to the subject, or for that matter, spend hours searching that site just to find the info.
Ah, first world problems. It's really not that big of a deal; like I said, I was just curious.
Ok, Hybrid. you say every single credit is known for RotF. Here it is:
1.) Prime (2:14) 2.) Einstein's Wrong (3:35) 3.) Nest (2:08) * 4.) The Shard (2:42) 5.) The Fallen (4:03) 6.) Infinite White (3:58) 7.) Heed Our Warning (4:26) 8.) The Fallen's Arrival (3:47) 9.) Tomb Of The Primes (2:47) 10.) Forest Battle (2:04) 11.) Precious Cargo (1:38) 12.) Matrix Of Leadership (3:50) 13.) I Claim Your Sun (3:06) 14.) I Rise, You Fall (3:35)
*Based on the song "New Divide" written & performed by Linkin Park
It then states up top that Zimmer & Balfe did additional music. So......where the hell are all the credits, I say?
You said you only add scores that are legit. So....we have this official release, the expanded release, and there's that infamous 72-track (73 if you count 'Road Reunion') so-called "complete" score. So is it real? It has a couple of unused and alt. tracks, the entire thing is in film order, and the length of it is longer than the film itself. And any possibility of adding who did which track? Thanks.
At this point, my track count is at 76 (not counting 2 tracks from the trailers wich belong to other groups). The 72 Track ediition has all that had been previously released plus some Demos and Alternate tracks, some unused in the film. Recently i got the tracks that are in the WarmButterDesign DVD, most already in the 72tk Edition, except 4. One, titled "DEFCON Delta" appears in the movie when the SecDef is talking on TV, there's a trailer track wich mimics the 2 i mentioned but seems to be made by Jablonsky, and one titled "Unused Cue". The 4th is the bit that starts the "Arrival to Earth (Original Version)" track on the 72tk but is a bit smaller than that. If it was just that i wouldn't call it new but the mix is different.
But as far as i can recall there are only 3 different scores the official one (with 20 tracks) The expanded score (with 52 tracks) the expanded 2 cd score (with 72 tracks) and one with 13 tracks wich exists out of tracks from the previous scores i named.
And abseloutely none of them has the que of when sam speaks to bumblebee for the first time as far as i know. or does anyone know if i overlooked anything? this track i want it soo much.
The track is "Optimus". In the movie it's missing, or if we go the other way around, in the CD they added, a flute "layer" to the track. Unless some bigger recording sessions Edition exists out there with aa fluteless version, the only way to have it is if anyone with the skill for it can remove the flute from that track. I tried ripping the movie 5.1ch track but in both places where they use it, the SFX are too intrusive.

------------------------------------------------------------ CD: SILCD1365 US Release Date: October 11, 2011
Digital Album: SILED1365 US Release date: August 16, 2011
Is this a thing? I mean does anyone really have this? It says the digital album's release date was close to two months ago, yet I've never seen any news, announcements, or download links for it.
It's not like it's music that I really need now that I know about it; I'm just wondering.
@ Mr. Fate
It's real. But if you're expecting any new material, don't. These are basically "covers" from material that has already been released. They are very nice but nothing new. And the originals are better. :)
For Transformers, it's easy, there are 3 different sources :
The 52 tracks "promo" which "came out" BEFORE the OST (which was also splitted in some very short "promo" also listed here)
The isolated DVD score by WarmButterDesign (for the Theme Suites).
Basically, the 72 tracks one is a mix of all three sources, done by a friend (the one who leaked the Theme Suites actually). So we can consider it "legit" yeah...
There are also stuff I consider being fakes with the "Qatar (Alt)" stuff or "Road Reunion" just a speed up version of Scorponok...
Maybe yeah I should add here some "ultimate expanded version" here...
As for who did what, apart from Scorponok being Jablonsky / Morris, and that Lorne has done a LOT in that score, I don't know much, it's quite undocumented (while TF2 is really detailed)...
What is this isolated DVD score??
So then would you consider the 72-track: "expanded", "complete", or "recording sessions"? And how come you find the alternate tracks to be fakes? Sure, Road Reunion may sound like a sped-up version of Scorponok, but is it really? There are dozens of soundtracks out there that have sped-up and slowed-down versions of different cues. Just wondering...
I second that, where is Qatar from, why is it fake?
@ Hybrid Soldier
Can you share some of that info about TF2? :) As for the 72 track version being a mix of the other 3, isn't there material in it that doesn't show anywhere else? Sure, it's demos and alt versions but a couple of them aren't in the WBD DVD.
As for the question of wether or not "Road Reunion" is a sped up version of Scorponok, i stick with the side that says it is, just because you can make that track by speeding up Scorponok. The definitive answer can only come from either Jablonsky or people involved in the movies production. The same can be said for wether or not the cue we hear when the Autobots are racing down the freeway, just before Sam spots Barricade, is a sped up version of Optimus Sword.
As for Qatar, the one released in the "All Spark Edition", i believe, is from Jablonsky, from the score from "Live from Baghdad" and, at least to my ears, is not what is eard in the movie wich, to me, always sounded a bit like The Transformers Theme. And it's so small i neglect it.
Why did the price from this score went from 16,99 yesterday to 7,99 today on iTunes? Same applies to RotF, went from 11,99 to 7,99... Funny if someone bought one of the two yesterday :P But this shows: 'something' is coming!
exactly... they always do that dont they when a new release from an artist comes out. :)
Indeed, that's what I'm saying :D
Up until the other day, I cannot believe this score is STILL $16.99 after nearly 4 years. That's ridiculously expensive.
You can get a 90min pressed bootleg for less than the price of this in places!
Has anyone noticed how the very beginning of Disc Wars from TRON: Legacy sounds like that cue in Transformers? You can hear it when Sam asks the cop "are you on drugs?" and then it cuts to Lennox and Epps in Qatar. I do know that Hans did add a little touch to Legacy, so maybe that's why. But what I'm talking about from Transformers isn't on any of the releases (promo, expanded, complete), it's only in the film.
Matthew: Well you seriously sound like a real fan of the transformers music. I understand why, i also know that you cannot talk on this board about where you got all of those score's but you can give me a silent hint right ;) please i am just desperate for finding that 72 track 2 disc score, as far as i know thats the most complete in the package. I'lll try to search along with you for the track you are searching for so long. thanks
I have the complete score, the expanded score, the original score, the arrenged records, the real complete score (with 72 track) and I have to say there is still unreleased music from the first movie. for example the air force one scene. in that scene you can hear the whole decepticons theme but you can't find it anywhere. I'm searching it since 2007 July...
So anyone has any idea where you can get the 2-CD version of the score (i believe with 72 tracks) including the promos and unused cues. And i saw it posted before but on all of the three scores that are released officially or unofficially is not the music that is played in the movie when Sam speaks to Bumblebee for the first time after that giant death match between bumblebee and the police car decepticon. That just sounds so great and thats the one they leave out? Why?
I had never heard of Steve Jablonsky before, but I won't miss a soundtrack from him again if this and the other Transformers score are any indication of the quality from this composer. I downloaded both from Amazon. Thank you for this music!
To all TF and Jablonsky fans, head to http://www.stevejablonskyonline.com/. They've posted a previously unreleased track named "Megatron Awakens (Original Unused Track)". Good stuff, hopefully an official CD of these unreleased track may still see the light of day. At least, put it on the web.
Part of me is wondering if Jablonsky is a big fan of John carpenter. Two cues in this film sound very similar to two cues of Carpenter's. Scorponok has moments that sound similar to Assualt on precient 13. And the Allspark theme has moments that sound similar to Escape from new York. I actually like when composers pay homage to thier favorite scores through there own work.
