Product Description

Product Description

Fans around the world have clamored for a Transformers live-action movie for a long time. Now, directed by Michael Bay (Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, The Rock and Bad Boys) and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the sci-fi action-adventure flick Transformers, inspired by one of the most popular toy lines in history, is set to become the box office blockbuster of the summer.

Amazon.ca

When a movie's main selling point is that it's really big and really loud, the soundtrack's got to keep up. But oddly, this CD falls short--tellingly, the first single is a power ballad by the Goo Goo Dolls, "Before It's Too Late," featuring the kind of emoting previously heard in Spider-Man's "Hero." The album's producers have mostly focused on arena guy rock circa 2007, with songs pulled from new or recent albums by the likes of Linkin Park or Taking Back Sunday. There should have been more tracks like the Smashing Pumpkins' rumbling juggernaut, "Doomsday Clock," Disturbed's compact "This Moment" or the Used's riff-a-rama "Pretty Handsome Awkward." Slightly surprising is the absence of electronics and hip-hop, the only exception (sort of) being Styles of Beyond's "Second to None," which sounds like the Beastie Boys on EPO, and Julien-K's "Technical Difficulties." While the big names are packed in the first two thirds of the CD, the last third serves as a showcase for upcoming bands (whose songs aren't in the movie) that sound exactly like their elders--glossy, huge, based on big guitar riffs. In the end, all this aggro energy feels more cosmetic and corporate than authentic. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Hands down, one of the best soundtracks ever! My only qualm is with the last song. It's the only song on the whole album that I don't like. They totally butchered the theme song. Anyway, the CD insert has some nice full color images from the movie. Good quality packaging, not crappy like those other CD compilations.

There are two things that would have made this the Holy Grail of Soundtracks for me. One, the original theme song from the television show would have been nice. Second, some album extras would have been cool too. Even if they were just stills from the movie. I made it a point to BUY this album rather than be 'evil' and download it. I was expecting some cool features to be added to the CD itself (to encourage purchasing). Oh well, I guess we don't need to be rewarded for doing the right thing every time ;).

The soundtrack begins with the song, What I've Done from Linkin Park and that song had 15 weeks at #1 on the Mainstream rock chart in the U.S. The soundtrack continues to impressive with the rockin, This Moment from Disturbed and then there's the ballad, Before It's Too Late from the Goo Goo Dolls and then there's Doomsday Clock from the Smashing Pumpkins. This soundtrack soars. One of the best soundtracks of the year!!

I must admit that when I first heard this soundtrack I was disappointed. The main reason for that disappointment is because I expect some nice orchestral pieces.

However, after giving the soundtrack a chance I discovered it very good. I do indeed enjoy it.

Although IMHO it does not suit the movie, but I cannot judge the quality of the music based on that opinion.
