One of the things I liked about the Transformers movie was the music. And I think it is wise to continue the trend with Transformers Revenge of the Fallen by keeping with the same themes. I found a deeper appreciation of Linkin Park through this experience.
However, people forget that forgotten Rocker Stan Bush had made a publicity push saying that he was working on music for the first film when it was in production in hopes that the fan devotion to Bush’s rock anthem from the animated feature film would gain him a place in the soundtrack of the live action feature. Apparently it didn’t work no matter how much we love the sweet cheesy The Touch that punctuated the epic battle that would cost Optimus Prime his life.
Well Stan is still at it, and has hopped on with Sam’s Theme from the first film and remixed his lyrics and screamy vocals of The Touch.
There is a fan appreciation of this that removes the rapping and overly happy guitar player. I am on the fence on this. It doesn’t quite work, but I give them an A for Effort.
