Better Than Steve Jablonsky's Scores? Yes And No. April 24 2012
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Is it possible that Brian Tyler was able to do a better job that Steve Jablonsky with an animated series of the beloved franchise? Yes and no. There is no denying that the first Transformers score by Jablonsky is a stunning piece of action scoring that calls back on the best action scores of the 90's. However, the two scores to follow were ultimately disappointments to me. Neither the films nor the scores could live up to the hair raising original. What Tyler does here is build off the best qualities of what Jablonsky did in the first Transformers film. With that being said this score is better than Revenge of The Fallen and Dark Of The Moon combined.

We start off with an amazingly heroic theme and that lays the foundation for the constantly grandiose score. The epic sounding score always maintains a level of greatness throughout, and any fan of Brian Tyler will love his orchestral approach. Since there are really no electronics in this score it may be jarring for fans of the movie since the soundscape is different in that sense. There are some cartoony moments that you can expect from an animated series, but overall there is nothing "kiddy" about the music. There is a surprising amount of intensity here that I didn't expect to find, but Tyler keeps it true to the franchise Hasbro has built. One may grow tired of the Prime theme quickly as Tyler falls back on it a lot, but not enough to ruin the experience of this 80-minute album.

Steve Jablonsky's first Transformers score will always remain the epic sound of Transformers, and this score can't come close to it. However, it puts the two followups to shame. If you want some faith restored to this beloved franchise then I urge you check out Brian Tyler's attempt at it. It won't blow you away, but his graceful and epic approach has much to admire.

This is an awesome CD! March 10 2012

We watch the show so we knew what to expect, and Brian Tyler is a great composer. Music is very epic feeling and it is hard to believe that it comes from a kids television show.

I can't believe this is a cartoon score June 8 2012
By Danny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a soundtrack that I stumbled upon and took a chance on. I've never watched this animated series but I am a big fan of Brian Tyler's scores. I was blown away when listening to this soundtrack and it was not a disappointment. It is probably the score that I listen to the most on my iPod. The opening title music is just incredible. The rest of the score is equally filled with memorable music that is hard hitting and emotional as well. When listening to it...it is hard to believe that such time was given to a score for an animated series. There are so many big budget movies that don't have a score as good as this! I guess I am going to have to check out this show now. If you are a fan of film scores, you can't go wrong with this one. Great stuff.

Epic! March 7 2012
By Allen Fair - Published on Amazon.com

A great, energetic, and fun score from an animated series like you would expect from a feature film. It is full of rhythmic action and atmospheric tracks. It is great to hear an orchestral score for this show instead of the usual synth-only music.

I think my ears cannot take this much awesome Jan. 11 2014
By Daughter of a Prime - Published on Amazon.com

The CD sounded BEAUTIFUL!! I had listened to the soundtrack on YouTube but it sounds even better on the CD. There is not much else to say, it was wonderful and I cannot really describe it. The case in which the CD was in did not impress me, but nonetheless, that is not the reason I bought it. I will most likely continue to buy albums by this composer! Two thumbs up! (I would give it more thumbs up but you see I only have two thumbs...)
