@RealFfingMusic,

"Bumblebee", "Optimus", "Auotbots", and several other themes were all used more than once in TF1. IMO it'll always be the best Transformers score.

@Hybrid, it seems that for once you're in the know about who worked on TF1! I don't mean it to sound insulting, it's just that you always say that score is a mess and nobody knows anything about it. Can you please tell us who wrote Bumblebee?

Transformers (2007) had quite a few great themes, but most appeared only once in the film. None but "Arrival to Earth" and the Autobots theme were reused in ROTF.

ROTF had fewer good themes, but the overall score was better -- both in film and as stand-alone.

In DOTM, a remixed version of Arr2Earth a part of "Bumblebee" were reused, once each, along with two major themes -- Battle/Moon Mission and Shockwave/Driller. Both the score and the film sounded quite appealing to me, though not as much as 1 or 2.

This one ditched nearly all the themes from the first trilogy, and featured none of SJ's peak quality. And so, from a Michael Bay fan:-
-= AOE SUCKS!!!=-

And that, mi amigos, is my opinion.

So Hans may have been involved in trailer 2 after all it seems...as he may have recorded an additional organ layer to the Evey Reborn track which is not present in the original!

Tried to extract it from the 5.1 audio of the trailer. Then listen to the trailer. Then listen to the original Evey Reborn again closely...

  Transformers - Age Of Extinction (The Score)2014-07-19 23:39:04

The Allspark creates the lifeforms from the transformium and these creators, which appear to be a mix of organic and cybertronian. They harvest transformium on Earth, 65 million years ago.
The Allspark then is lost (TF1), making the energon supply to run low.
After, the Fallen and the Primes take charge as governors, sort of, and set to find the energon, harvesting the suns. They create the Harvester thing, Fallen defeated, Primes dead.
No Primes, civil war begins on Cybertron. Sentinel leaves, war on Cybertron is lost, Megatron leaves in search for Sentinel and Cube (Could or could not know they were both "neighbors") Sentinel is lost, wanders through the stars until the 60's and moon-crashes, all Transformers leave in a hopeless search for the Cube.

TF1 begins, Megatron rises, in hopes of using the Harvester and then waking up Sentinel to rebuild Cybertron with a massive stock of new Energon, dies, returns, meets Fallen, they attack, they lose, Fallen's gone, Soundwave's backup plan is set in motion with Sentinel, TF3.

He dies, again. Chicago is ruins, humans wanna kill all bots, Creators find out of all the mess, send Lockdown, Galvatron rises, doesn't die, finally. And that's it. Not that difficul.

I do suggest you watch AOE again. It may sound weird but now that you know this and know waht you're going into in duration and this "mess" you talk about, you might enjoy it better. I enjoyed my third showing more than the first. Did feel the long thing at first. (First time I go to the bathroom during a film in years)

Did you see it 3D or 2D?

I wonder how composers feel when they're working on rubbish films like this. It must be hard to get inspired about a collection of casual sexism, racism, incoherent action, product placement, government propaganda and laughable dialogue. That said, some great scores have been written for terrible films.

I don't understand what happened to Bay, he used to make some entertaining films, but the last decade or so has been a disaster for him.
  Transformers - Age Of Extinction (The Score)2014-07-19 23:00:30
Hybrid Soldier
You have no idea what I mean by "too long"... MOS is too short, and Titanic is perfect... ;)

It's all relative to the movie, and TF4 would have been way better with 30 min less I think...

It's a mess in so many ways I wouldn't know where to start... Characters appearing from nowhere & disappearing with no reason, the total changing of Stanley Tucci out of nowhere in the middle, the constant incoherences about the Transformers origins in all 4 movies (first it all came from the Cube, which arrived... on Earth... But Earth was already visited by Transformers with the tomb of the Primes, and actually there was a Transformers on the Moon who was reaching Earth, but no no in the end Transformers destroyed Dinosaurs in order to have material to create more Transformers, and Optimus is finally a creation from "higher forces" and who cares about the Cube... wait what ?), it's getting almost as confusing as the X-Men saga...

I love Bay, I watch all his stuff when I have a chance, even the partly laughable Pearl Harbor, but this one was really hard to go through... Some good stuff in it though like Marky Mark, Lockdown or the Dinobots... My fav' film & score remains the second one...

I think the score was very fitting to the pictures, but not as stand-alone as the previous three.

As for the film, it is in my opinion by far the best out of the series. All the things I loved in the previous ones were back (and even better), and some of the things that really annoyed me in the first movies, were toned down or just removed. Also, the story was better, and the humans had a real role to play, instead of just being in the middle of a neverending Decepticon/Autobots war.

I just cannot understand how one can like TF2 or TF3, and not this one. It's got the same ingredients, and it's just more expertly handled. You know, in fact it's reminds me of Pirates of the Caribbean 3: its plot was a little more dense and its directing was a bit more daring, and then suddenly everyone was complaining about how long and messy it was. But for me it was by far the best of the trilogy...

But don't forget I'm a gigantic fan of Michael Bay's visual style, I could watch endlessly any scene shot by him. And I saw TF4 three times already (and still noticing new awesome shots the third time around!).

People should know the length of a movie they're headed into. Especially if it's a Michael Bay movie, expect it to be long.

Hybrid Soldier, in what way was it "a total mess"?

So I finally saw the film, which is pretty weak... Too long & totally messy (I mean, more than usual for Bay).

I love Bay but this was terribly disappointing, the few great scenes, like the "Your Creators Want You Back" sequence, are surrounded by a total mess... And it brings nothing we haven't seen in the 3 previous films... -_-

As for the score, it's not a masterpiece either... Compared to it, TF1 & 2 are golden age classics (but well those 2 were co-written by some people who didn't work on 3 & 4, that's why...) ! I do dig Lockdown's theme in the end, and the Imagine Dragons/Jablonsky/Zimmer song participation is for me the best thing in it... Other than that, it manages to get as lost as the film it supports !

Jeez if I take the Puss in Boots page instead of Cap 2... O_O

Yeah indeed my mistake (I should sleep more ?), but the score was done the same in London...

But as I said, all these studios, Sacred Tiger, Arata Music (Jablonsky), Silvertone Music (Djawadi), 5 Cat Studio (Powell), formerly Wavecrest studio & others are just nearbye, Jablonsky is 5 minutes away from RCP and did come back to Hans' studio for TF4 so...

If you click on "See Details..." here you'd just see "Score Mixed at Remote Control Productions, Santa Monica, CA" lol...

And this score was mainly done in the UK at Air... :)

And Zimmer is thanked... What drugs did you take ? lol

And yeah eventually they all open their own studios (mainly in their own houses or just 2 blocks away from RCP) ! :P

Hybrid (and maybe the others), do you know if Henry Jackman is still at remote?I saw that in the booklet of captain america he didn't do anything at RCP and didn't even thank Hans Zimmmer. After further research I saw he opened his studio (Sacred tiger music)and mixed his cap 2 score there
  Puss In Boots2014-07-18 21:08:04

It was indeed, not as strong as 2010, but definitely not bad. 2013 was a horrible year, though. For Hans, 2011 was a year of good scores with rather weak soundtrack releases, PotC 4 as an exception which I thought was uninspired. Hans said himself he didn't like that project.
  Puss In Boots2014-07-18 17:06:03
Edmund Meinerts
It's a good score indeed, but I don't think I'd put it even in the top 10 of 2011. That was a really good year for film scores (other than for Hans Zimmer, of course).
  Puss In Boots2014-07-17 23:14:22

  Inception2014-07-16 21:59:00

I'm excited to see what he comes up with. The Spiderman 2 score was very inventive, despite being for a horrible film, and the interview where he said he's throwing the 'endless string ostinatos' and 'big drums' in the bin bodes well. Space and gravity and all that amazing stuff is so exciting and interesting to me, coming from a theoretical physics background, so I'm looking forward to November.

Lorne wasn't supposed to work on it, Hans wanted to do it alone, "very personal"...

In the meantime, what happened ? I can't know for sure, there are so many parameters that can change plans... So who knows... We'll see !
  Inception2014-07-16 11:41:03

Hybrid could you perhaps just figure out of Lorne has anything to do with the work on Interstellar? It wouldn't be the same to have a pure nolan-zimmer film without him around.
