    With something pretty similar to TRANSFORMERS, I think I know what to expect from the composer and I hope it will still be greatly fun to listen to with some great thematic materials as well.

  2. Yahzee says:

    I hope Steve Jablonsky changes his style with this one, because while I love his Transformers music, I don’t need another reason to see Battleship as just “Transformers at Sea”. On second thought, I’m not interested in this film so…

  3. This looks like a very promising album. I think it’s worth the pre-order. I hope it truly lives up to my expectations.

  4. Trent says:

    Very excited. Love the Transformers scores.

  6. Anyone seen a complete list of all the songs in the movie that are not necessarily on the official score soundtrack CD?

    does anyone knows the song used in the scene after the ceremony, when they are taken photos?
