Transformers Movie Suite

Transformers 1 Suite
Music by Steve Jablonsky

Mixing orchestral flourishes with thunderous synthesizers, Mr. Joblonsky has scored a movie suite that rarely slows a beat.  While sustaining the percussive impact, this music struts down the heroic soundscape into movie music history. The first of this successful series of blockbusters, this movie suite also has some choral moments blended into the tapestry for effect. Although this is a valiant effort, I am struck by the fact that it sounds reminiscent of so many of the other current crop of composers.  Did they all attend the same class? Or is it just flattery? With a timing of 28:26, this is another one for the archives. Hope you enjoy.  -MJ
