Transformers: The Movie Soundtrack(1986). Music taken from the Transformers motion picture movie.
If you were a kid of the 80s like me, you'd have to be living under a rock in a far distant land not to at least know what the Transformers phenomenon was. And that's exactly what it was, A PHENOMENON. Transformers were to the mid-80s what Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were to the early 90s and Pokemon to the late 90s: a kid's dream come true. There was the great cartoon that started the whole craze, but kids remembered Transformers the most by the impressive line of toys. I had quite a few of them, and so did most every kid I knew. The franchise slowed down a bit towards the mid 90s, but as far as I know, they are still making Transformers cartoons today.
Of course, at the height of Transformers' popularity came a full-length big-screen movie, which was excellent for its time, though it also caused the series to take a slight downturn due to the scene where Optimus Prime dies (ALL fans can agree that this greatly changed the series). But one aspect that made the movie so memorable was its outstanding music soundtrack. Armed with a score that was created by Vince DiCola (also worked on Rocky IV) and a slew of pop rock and pop metal songs by various people, the Transformers movie soundtrack ended up being an outstanding movie soundtrack that often goes overlooked in the context of soundtracks from the period. Here's an analysis of the tracks:
Tracks 1 & 4 are both Stan Bush songs. 'The Touch' is a good opener, while 'Dare' is more of an uplifting power pop song with an infectious chorus (but then again, has Stan Bush ever made a song that isn't catchy?). Both are pretty good pop songs. 'Instruments Of Destruction' is a sinister pop metal song performed by N.R.G.

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! 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...

After reading alot of reviews for this cd, one thing that has really annoyed me is all the people saying that this is only for transformers fans and, well, it isn't JUST for fans. I let half my family (non of which are transformer fans) listen to several of the songs and they even liked it. I, myself, wasn't a huge transformers fan growing up. I bought some of the toys, watched the show occasionally, and one day, rented the movie. As far as movies go, it wasn't great, but, it was as good as can be expected out of a toy company trying to sell their toys by making a movie. The one thing though that really stood out was the music played throughout it. The battle between OP (Optimus Prime) and MT (Megatron) was great because of the fact that "The Touch" was played during it. The raid on Unicron is when "Dare" was played, which also made that scene better. These two are easily my fav. songs on the cd. Both up-beat and very inspirational. "Hunger" is a good hard rock tune, proving that this cd isn't too kiddy-fied. My third fav. "Nothin's Gonna Stand in Our Way" is, probably, the best song in terms of lyrics on here-"The fortunate ones, to be fast and free and young, I want to count myself among the fortunate ones...We won't be denied! We know that time is on our side, we've got the PASSION and the PRIDE!...We won't be denied!" Absolutely wonderful! The three musical numbers are all very good as well, I just wished they didn't interupt the songs in between. This problem can easily be fixed by anyone who knows how to program in tracks on your cd player though. "Instruments of Destruction" is also a little hard rockish, although it would be better if I could understand what he was saying."Dare to be Stupid" I think is only tollerated for one reason and that's because it is at the end of the cd.Read more ›
