Music From the Transformers Trilogy


Composer: Steve Jablonsky
Performed by: London Music Works
Silva Screen Records
RRP: £13.99
Available 03 October 2011

Steve Jablonsky’s long association with Transformers director Michael Bay began in the 1990s, creating additional music for Armageddon, Pearl Harbor and Bad Boys II, and forming a close link with prolific composer Hans Zimmer. His career spans film, TV and video games and includes the remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror and Friday The 13th.

I've been a fan of Jablonsky's since I saw the movie Steamboy, and while I did enjoy the music he composed for the Transformers movies, I couldn't help feeling that it all sounded a little too much like a Hans Zimmer score - in fact there are segments that sound like they are paying homage to Zimmer's work on Gladiator. Nowhere is this more obvious in the track 'Infinite White' which is taken from Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen.

London Music Works do a magnificent job of reproducing Jablonsky's original music. In fact, if you don't own the originals, you'll be hard pressed to distinguish this from the original soundtrack recordings.

There are some powerful and beautiful themes here. If you don't already own the original scores, this is a wonderful way of being introduced to Jablonsky's music.
