Many have criticised it, but I have been a fan of Steve Jablonsky’s scores for the Transformers films. When we do not have to put with Bay’s beloved soft rock as the non-diagetic soundtrack to his franchise, Jablonsky’s score may not have been particularly original (he is a protégé of Hans Zimmer and his compositions certainly demonstrate obvious influence and perhaps minor plagiarism), but with rousing strings and thumping drums, he has created some memorable riffs for his Transformers scores that perfectly suit the films.

Jablonsky’s score for 'Transformers' had some very memorable compositions and because it had riffs and themes attributed to certain characters; it in my view enhanced what was by far the best film and score of the four films. The music for the first film was true punch-the-air stuff in my view. It is a shame that Michael Bay has not been able to develop the franchise and has only seemingly gone generally backwards (with number 2 the low point), and it pains me to say that with Age of Extinction, as an overall score, is actually Jablonsky’s weakest score of the franchise.

Things start off really well with the opening track ‘Decision’, a very brooding and atmospheric piece that builds slowly and with subtlety, using a very memorable riff similar to that of his previous Transformers compositions. Track 2 ‘Best Thing that Ever Happened’ is a gentle and soulful piece that actually works better when listened to in isolation than when in the film, it does however feature a vocal that is then repeatedly used that in my view does not work.

Steve Jablonsky has scored all of the Transformers films in the series and has developed a distinct sound for the franchise. Yes, as a protegee of Hans Zimmer, some of his work often times hews close to his mentor's sound, but nonetheless managed to enthuse each film with a rousing score. In my opinion "Age of Extinction"'s is the best of the lot; more diverse in content than its predecessors, Jablonsky also (quite bravely) does away with the majority of his previous work and creates an almost all-new soundtrack. The only recognizable theme present from the previous trilogy is "The Legend Exists" which only slightly mixes up the classic "Arrival To Earth" theme from the first film which has been present in all films since in some form or other.

The rest of the score is almost entirely new for this film, with little reuse within the album itself as well, the only frequently recurring motif being Lockdown's theme, which is understandable as the main villain. Several tracks stand apart from the rest with a unique sound such as "Best Thing That Ever Happened", "Hacking the Drone", "Transformium", and "Hong Kong Chase". Somewhat following tradition, these pieces tend to be used more frequently for the humans, with the more pounding orchestral stuff reserved for the Transformers themselves. It's also worth noting that much like "Revenge of the Fallen" and unrelated film "Casino Royale", "Age of Extinction" uses samples of its official song, "Battle Cry" by Imagine Dragons throughout some of its play time. This works rather well, though occasionally throws in some stray lyrics from it which may be off-putting to some.

A brilliant EP it's a shame these tracks are not part of the main sountrack.
