The Transformers the Movie Soundtrack is something i purchased back in 1992. I now have it on CD because i played my tape so many times that it began to warp. Stan Bush, Spectre General ( now Kick Axe ), NRG, and Lion, as well as the instrumentals by Vince DiCola are outstanding! Back in the hey-day of Twisted Sister, Quiet Riot, and Ratt, the record companies wanted to continue the success of metal bands by signing anyone who had a guitar and long hair. Most of those bands had no talent, but the record companies did not care as long as they generated money.
Well, some unrealized " INCREDIBLE " artists with something to say, are Stan Bush, Kick Axe, NRG, and Lion! Artists who blow away the competition!!! These artists have been overlooked for much too long!!! For years i searched for more music from those mentioned artists, but with no find. After now using the internet, i've found several albums of Stan Bush and Kick Axe. They are highly talented who are underestimated. I will go so far to say in my opinion, that the Transformers the Movie Soundtrack is perfect! " The Touch ", " Dare ", " Nothin's Gonna Stand in our Way ", and " Hunger " are truly awesome songs that greatly inspire! I urge you to pick this soundtrack up, and i assure you that you will NEVER regret it! I have been in many music stores, and have not found this album. You can find it in better music stores, but the best way, and most assured way, is to order it from here. And if you think this album is that great, you should pick up all albums from Stan Bush, and Kick Axe! I promise you- you will not be let down!!! I also recomend " Heaven " by Stan Bush and Barrage, and " Welcome to the Club ", " Vices ", and " Rock the World " by Kick Axe. But please dont buy tapes, buy Cds. Because trust me- You will play them over and over and over and over and over and over and...

The original Transformers series was a phenomenon (I'm not feeling the Beast Wars series at all...) and the music for the series/movie (like Robotech) was incredible...and I fell in love with the music (especially Unicron's Theme) as soon as I heard it. Getting this soundtrack may be dissapointing if you loved the instrumentals by Vince DiCola (like I do) which just about accompany the whole movie. But, the three instrumentals that are featured on this album are probably the best musical compositions that Vince DiCola did for the movie, especially the "Death Of Optimus Prime".
I personally think the soundtrack's hottest songs are "Dare" (I think of Hot Rod), "The Touch" (Can you believe Mark Wahlberg sang this in Boogie Nights?) and the Transformers Main Theme. As an album however, the TF:TM Soundtrack is a little on the short end. If you're just getting into the music of the Transformers, I would recommend starting here, and then searching for the complete score 'Till All Are One' if you find yourself unsatisfied. I got it, and now feel complete. (smile)
Oh, and be warned...these are only the movie tracks - I have yet to locate the music from the TV series which was almost as good. (Can anyone help me?) Just know that this album is a good place to start, and is definitely required ownership for any self respecting Transformers fanatic - closet case or not. Trust me.
I just wish there was a soundtrack for the original Voltron series...

Okay, where to begin? The start is good place. Stan Bush's inspiration "The Touch" is a joy to behold. Upon hearing it, I can't help but grab my script and relieve classic moments from the movie, indeed, I could say that for the whole film. "Dare" is inspirational to the extreme, and always cheers me up when I feel depressed NRG's "Instruments of Destruction" fits perfectly with the film, keeping the pace throughout. Vince DiCola's three instrumental pieces are simply fantastic. "Death of Optimus Prime" brings a tear to my eye everytime I hear it, knowing that the end will herald the loss of onE of TV's greatest heroes. This is, by far, my favourite piece of music of all time. Spectre General's "Hunger" is utterly fantastic, it is the only song I play repeat ad nauseum! And finally, Weird Al Yankovich's "Dare to be Stupid" is hilarious, taking a side-ways look at 80s stereotypes, perhaps perfect for the film characters it represents.
In short, a wonderful CD accompaniment to a wonderful film. If you count yourself as even a remote Transformers fan, you NEED this CD, your life is not complete without it!

Best known for his work on such movies as "Rocky IV", Vince Dicola has long been considered the tour de force of 1980's synthesizer movie scores. And rightfully so. "The Transformers: The Movie" soundtrack is jam-packed with hard-rockin' jams (see: Spectre General) and passionate instrumentals (the aforementioned Dicola).

While most of the bands/singers on this album are relative unknowns (with the notable exception of "Weird Al" Yankovic), I suspect it's just a matter of time before N.R.G. and Lion make it big on the music scene. Even though Vince Dicola is clearly the driving-force behind this album, the triumphant anthems, "Dare" and "The Touch", prove that Stan Bush might be able to give Dicola a run for his money.

Petty rivalries aside, this album is Dicola's baby, and deservedly so. Some 16-years later, "The Transformers: The Movie" soundtrack remains the pinnacle of Vince Dicola's career.

My favorite song on this album is the under-rated and underappreciate, The Touch from Stan Bush. I remember the first time I heard this song in 1986 when the movie opened. I can actually see Optimus Prime transform after getting off the space ship and say the words "Megatron must be stopped". The Touch is one song that stirs my emotions. I just listened to the song and it actually bought tears to my eyes. I've always been sentimental and that song, The Touch is sentimental. I remember the battle scene when Megatron transforms on the Autobots shuttle and starts to destroy some of my favorite autobots like Iron Hide, Ratchet, Prowl and others. Dare is one song when Daniel and Hot Rod are having fun near Autobot city- not aware of the trouble that was heading their way.

One of the most powerful soundtracks that is under-rated and under-appreciated.

I recently saw the movie for the first time in twelve years. I thought, I must have this movie, and the soundtrack. Now I have them both, and let me say that this is one of the best soundtracks of all time. I just listen to this over and over again. The music makes great driving music. The songs seem so fitting to the movie. "The Touch" shows the strength and power of Optimus Prime("You at your best when the going gets tough") "Dare To Be Stupid", is a great display of TV talk, which is what the Junkions are all about.
Other great songs to this great cartoon movie are "Instruments Of Destruction", "Nothing's Gonna Stand In Our Way", and "Hunger"
My advice to anyone who is a rock and roll fan, or a fan of Transformers:
GET THIS SOUNDTRACK, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE MISSING

I saw the movie back in '86 and I must say that music definitely makes the movie!!! AND THIS MOVIE KICKED BUTT!!! I was a real big TF fan back then, and still love them to this day-- a Megatron figure sits on my desk next to the CPU.(It keeps you young) The metal/rock soundtrack was awesome and Vince DiCola's instrumentals are off the chain!!! Autobot/Decepticon battle puts you right in the heart of the conflict with so much energy in the music and lots of feeling!!!I had the soundtrack before I saw the movie, which gave away one of the cliffhangers--but I still love the music and the movie. Lion's rendition of the title theme gives the TF theme a fresh new--something different from the TV show. It's a must have for TF fans--just wish it had Unicron's theme and other orchestrations...still, it ROCKS!!!

Transformers is my favorite cartoon since it was born, when i saw and bought the soundtrack and when i heard it for the first time i felt a great hope in me, its like i can do anything specially when i was chosen to my basketball varsity team. Just wanna thank Vince DiCola and Stan Bush because they are trully great music artist, its just sad they were not that given credits to their works but people like me do, so i salute u 2 and for the other artist who made this possible, thanks. When i saw the movie and when you listen to the soundtrack you feel the adrenalin is pumping like your beating your opponent. Well i hope i can buy the new cds. thank you, you changed my life transformers, "till all are one".

I love music. I make my living as a DJ. This CD Rocks! If you are a fan of 80's Metal, this CD captures that genre (sic?) like no other. Even if you think the Transformers are for nerds who have never kissed a girl (WHICH THEY ARN'T), this CD stands on it's own as having two great rock/electronic instrumentals, two good 80's pop/rock anthems, and four AWSOME 80's metal songs.
As a matter of fact, this CD is what got me into Hard Rock/Metal back when I was 14.
So, if you loved the movie, it's a must have (that goes without saying). If you hated it, or never saw it, but love big hair rock, it's a must have. If you think Enya and N'Sync are edgy, this CD is probably too much for ya.
