No no, it's just a fake rumor. I was just responding to that MusoPT guy who made it sound like it's totally inconceivable that Balfe could ever be replaced.Wait!<br>So has Balfe been replaced due to having other projects?<br>I thought it had been completed?Why was there the change of composers?...wouldn't being really busy be an argument *for* him possibly being replaced? When you're signed on to 10 movies and release schedules are being constantly pushed around because nobody has a clue when theaters are going to open again, you shouldn't be surprised if eventually you might run into some conflicts.Jackman is not replacing Balfe! <br>Balfe is the most busiest composer at the moment so he isn’t going to get replaced last minute!!!!!
Thank you for your replies. On IMDB she is listed.Alright, after re-listening to the score, I've made a few educated guesses of what the additional composers did, based on what we know about the score and their previous work. Note that none of this is confirmed by Hybrid, just my opinion.<br><br>Lorne Balfe: Seems to practically be a co-composer here. I hear a lot of him in this score. It seems he did Invasion (as he's known for contributing trailer music to films he works on) seemingly the suites "Brooding", "Deciphering the Signal", "Battle", and the one we know he cowrote, "Journey Suite". Based on this here's my guess as to what he contributed. <br><br>Soccent Attack - Sounds like his style, probably him arranging AllSpark and Decepticon material. <br><br>Keller's Briefing - Arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal"<br><br>Deciphering the Signal - Obviously another arrangement of "Deciphering the Signal" with Batman Begins-like action at the end.<br><br>Sam's Pink Bike Ride (Part 2) - Sounds like an arrangement of "Brooding" material. <br><br>(Possibly?) Are You LadiesMan217? - Some arrangement of "Brooding" and "Journey Suite" material, although hard to say whether the theme at 1:10 is Steve's or Lorne's. Could be Steve arranging Lorne material, as it sounds more Jablonsky-esque to me. <br><br>Autobots to the Rescue - Could be Steve imitating Batman Begins style, but sounds far too Lorne for me to not consider it a co-written track. <br><br>Sector 7 Chase - Part 1 sounds more Jablonsky than Lorne, but there's no question to me that part 2 has a lot of Balfe in there. <br><br>Where Is My Car? - Batman Begins-like again, probably Lorne solo, or Lorne and Steve<br><br>Decepticons Mobilize (Part 2) - Arrangement of "Brooding"<br><br>Freeway Fight - Battle version of Decepticon theme from "Brooding"<br><br>Stumble Bumble (Part 1) & (Part 2 Alternate) - Arrangement of "Journey Suite", second part not used in the film sounds like Steve & Lorne Combo to me. Film version of part 2 sounds pure Steve to me. <br><br>You're A Soldier Now (Parts 1 & 3) - Lorne being heavily involved in the final battle is known, and Parts 1 and 3 have arrangements of Lorne material. I'm also fairly certain that Lorne wrote the Optimus vs Megatron theme from Part 3 and "Optimus vs Megatron".<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - Finale of theme introduced in "You're A Soldier Now (Part 3)" as well as the "Journey / AllSpark" theme which could be Lorne's or Steve's. <br><br>Trevor Morris: I can infer from his work on Pirates 2, The Island, and the one track we know he worked on. <br><br>Soldiers Arrive - Not sure why, but I've always assumed this military theme was Morris'.<br><br>Arctic 1897 - Dark theme that reminds me a lot of his work from Pirates 2. <br><br>Scorponok - Known fact that he co-wrote this. <br><br>Hoover Dam - Arrangement of military theme<br><br>Transforming -  Same theme from Arctic 1897<br><br>Sam on the Roof (Part 2) - Arrangement of theme from Scorponok, though could be Steve or Lorne arranging it.<br><br>Optimus vs Megatron - A slight hint to the Military theme when they begin attacking Blackout, and Scorponok theme reprisal, once again could be Steve or Lorne arranging these themes. <br><br>Creeper Suite / A Call to Arms (Unused) - Original music for Optimus' Epilogue, contains arrangement of military theme. <br><br>Jay Flood: Can be inferred from his work on Transformers: The Game, his overall more orchestral writing, and his contributions to Nightmare on Elm Street, Sims 3, and Desperate Housewives. <br><br>Camaro on the Run - Definitely has a TF: The Game sound to it overall. As well as a bit of Thomas Newman-esque music. <br><br>Witwicky (Parts 1-3) - Definitely some of his style here along with Steve's overall Desperate Housewives-esque music. <br><br>Decepticons 2 Suite / Frenzy - The suspenseful strings make me think of Flood's Nightmare on Elm Street work, and the brass writing seems more characteristic of him than Jablonsky to me, though it was still probably a co-written suite. <br><br>Tense Action Suite - Once again reminds me of Flood's Nightmare suspenseful string writing, probably at least co-composed with Jablonsky. <br><br>Clay Duncan - I can guess somewhat based on his contributions to "The Island" but otherwise I don't know much about him so I'm not sure about any of the inferences I'm about the make. <br><br>Angry Camaro - This sort of drone music sounds like it could be him as his contributions were very electronic in The Island.<br><br>Bumblebee vs Barricade - Strange electronics and sounds plus more minimalist writing make me think Duncan. <br><br>Tow Truck Charge - Definitely has The Island's sound. Could be Trevor Morris too. <br><br>TJ Lindgreen: I know so little about his style except he works with Elfman and did additional music for TF: The Game so not much I can say for what he did. <br><br>Belly Shot(?) - The ethereal choir style sounds somewhat like TF: The Game's score and Elfman's choir. <br><br>Not to Hear That(?) - Maybe he composed this motif for Mikaela that also appeared in "Belly Shot". <br><br>Surreal Mikaela(?) - Once again I'm hoping the specific choir sound is part of his style. <br><br>Anything I didn't mention is a track I'm assuming is all Jablonsky. Please note that I'm not trying to take away from Steve's work on this score, and that for most of these track I'm assuming Steve had some involvement in as well, I'm just speculating for fun because I've always wanted to know who did what on this score.LP sadly, but it's also on Spotify.Technical reasons ! lol ;)<br><br>But she was there.Most welcome news. Should be a nice replacement for the Fantastic Beasts score that will have to have been pushed off. I imagine his work on Jungle Cruise will be great as well. 2021 is looking pretty exciting for score releases!
She definitely performed on the score, I don't know why she is uncredited...The poster shows Lorne Balfe as the composer.<br><br>But then it also did have Desplat!So no solo cello by Tina Guo? Is it digital then or is it no cello?CD or LP release?Why is Lorne Balfe not nominated for a Grammy for Ad Astra ?
To my understanding, James never worked for Hans or Remote Control. They’re simply friends and have collaborated on a few projects. Powell (and Gregson-Williams) used to work at Remote Control before moving on to his own studio/endeavors. <br><br>BUT, I am equally as excited for James to return to Disney Animation. Very excited for this and Jungle Cruise.I guess James Newton Howard doesn't count as a Remote Control composer anymore (and yet John Powell does? I don't get it), but anyway, he's scoring Disney Animation Studios' Raya and the Last Dragon. After his epic trilogy of Dinosaur, Atlantis, and Treasure Planet, I welcome his return to the studio!Some original cue titles with slates from a music mixing CD-R:<br>1M13 Transactions<br><br>2M16 Jake Gets Stoned<br>2M20A Alley<br>2M21 Rapists Castration<br><br>3M24 My Old Division<br>3M27 Go Fetch Dog<br>3M30 The Freeway<br>3M32 Alonzo Steals Money<br>3M33 Into The Jungle<br><br>4M41 Safety Is First / Busting Into Rogers<br><br>5M46 Helicopter<br>5M48 Sunset / Wet Streets<br>5M51 Jake Gets Beaten<br>5M52 Smiley Calls His Cousin<br><br>6M57 On The Roof<br>6M58 Jake Lands On Car<br><br>7M61 Alonzo Dies<br>7M63 Sun ShotMovie credits:<br><br>Music by Hans Zimmer & David Fleming<br><br>Music Supervisor: Joe Rudge<br><br>Score Produced by Hans Zimmer<br>Supervising Music Editor: Ryan Rubin<br>Music Editor: Nate Underkuffler<br>Music Production Services: Steven Kofsky<br>Additional Music by Ben Powell<br>Featured Guitar Soloist: Derek Trucks<br>Score Mixed by Seth Waldmann<br>Score Mix Assistant: Aldo Arechar<br>Technical Score Engineer: Chuck Choi<br>Technical Assistants: James Grimwade, Aldo Arechar, Steven Doar & Fabio Marks<br>Synth Programming: Hans Zimmer<br>Digital Instrument Design: Mark Wherry<br>Digital Instrument Preparation: Taurees Habib, Raul Vega, David Naroth & Paul Salerno<br>Studio Manager for Remote Control Productions: Shalini Singh<br>Assistant to Hans Zimmer: Cynthia Park<br>Score Mixed at Remote Control Productions, Santa Monica CA<br>Music Clearances: Jessica Dolingerthats true

TF2 score is a good score, but there are a problem with the album : the cd is to short, in non chronological order (it's all the time the case), the non choice of several very good tracks... the first TF1 edition suffer of the same problems, but the providential complete promo score (...) fix it ,
i hope so much a promo score (complete) for TF2 (please Mr Jablonsky could you make a little leak of your work for the fans ? ;-)

Damn....One month passes and not only is Transformers off the top ten, but the score just gets blown off the wayside in favor of something else (at least for me)....

The first score held more resonance IMO...Pity.

I liked the Gladiator feel to the proceedings, but in the end, Ive heard it all before (and done better) in other films, so I just didn't care. This score seemed more like a rehash of other film themes, and then every once in a while you get the Autobot theme Reprise tossed in to remind you its the Transformers score...

This score reminded me more of other scores - Galdiator, Angels and Demons, Pirates - to name a few. The only original concept I could actually pull from this was the Linkin Park New Divide, which wasnt even Jablonsky's creation and i even read Zimmer put his entire fist into this pie.

Pretty sad...

As musicmakers go, Im more looking forward to Tyler bates latest Halloween offering, and now ignoring this once seemingly promising Jablonsky score....

I'd have to say his Friday the 13th score was better than this one.

Heres to the hopeful release of a promo!

Why do people want an expanded score so much for this film? It isn't worth a petition considering the fact that there are so many other scores that haven't even had proper releases.

A composer IS a music maker--it's kind of in the job description.

Jablonsky is not a composer - he is a music maker, just like tyler bates

There is an AWESOME revision of Skorponok at 123 minutes in the movie. The fighter jets start taking off and you can hear it begin. They need this in the score!

Well, I do like the score...but not as much as the first one. I have a feeling that Hans Zimmer had more to do with the score than one would think. I like Hans Zimmer...don't get me wrong....but in my opinion (and mine ONLY) I feel that Steve Jablonsky should have been the only composer and then perhaps the second score would not sound SO DIFFERENT from the first. Oh well...maybe a complete score can fix the problem :)

Miles reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-13 00:00:00
Personally, I liked the score a lot; a much more epic feel in some parts than the first one (and that's saying something).

Poor score to decent (but worse than T1) movie. Nothing new, nothing thrilling, maybe 2 good tracks - rest is copied from TDK, Transformers, A&D and even Pirates of the Caribbbean. Outside the movie this music sucks.

poopoobaer reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-12 00:00:00
methinks due to recent American Economic turmoil cds came to be more of a "less is more" Varese Sarabande affair...Wolverine came out with a quickie cd, although thats not such a great example (since all the music appears to be on that short disc)....

Plus considering Zimmer had his hands in the pie, DOUBLE PLUS Linkin Park put their fingers in, you're talking about silly rights and royalty issues that probobly made it way too complicated in terms of red tape.


No worries, though.....Im sure at some point you'll be seeing a bootleg surface - as soon as dvd comes out this fall/Xmas.

disappointed at this score. the film is excellent, better scenes, more robots than the first one. but the score, the music, I have to say, sucks. no better new action themes, just atomosphere music, i don't like it. it can not excite me. I prefer the First Tansformers score.

Hello, first time poster.

Transformers 2 is Bay 's best film yet.

But where are all the reprises? (New Divide/Scorponok) and new themes (Ravage/Devastaor)

This film NEEDS an expanded score.

Seriously 44 mins of music out of an 150 min film, shows disrepect to fans and assumes that since it's TF,Jablonsky and Zimmer they will buy it.

Don't be jackasses. Give the fans an expanded score.


We (hopefully) will not need to write another petition so that we can get the full 100% of the score.

Alex out.

@ comment below

The song where Devastator is climbing the pyramid and Simmons is coming up behind him is not anywhere to be found.

I'm really waiting for that song, REALLY hope to get an expanded score

Anonymous reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-06 00:00:00
Ill say again: the released cd pretty much has all the music, save extensions, underscore, ravage theme, megatron theme....FYI The track Heed Our Warning was not in the film itself.

All in all not too many to speak of. The reprises alone were not so noteworthy...and if one were so inclined one could very well put together a more complete version of Fallen by editing bits of the first score into this one.

Ive seen the flick twice. Heard everything it had to offer...Most of what I heard was what I stated above. Anything I may have missed was mostly either from the first score, or was subdued underscore that really isnt needed, and you're talking about a meager .05% if at all.

The ending of the movie - from the part Optimus is resurrected to the very end - is entirely on the cd. The war is mostly just bits of TF 1 bits...and QUICK bits at that. The scorponok theme? They played it for like 15 seconds when they were launching the airplanes from the carrier...it was an afterthought.

Anyway, All that was needed (for me anyway) to be on the cd was the bit where Megatron was revived, the reprise of New Divide when they resuce Sam, and the SMALL bit where Soundwave releases Ravage. The rest Ive already heard elsewhere.

cheers
