Happy Birthday and Transformers

Happy belated birthday to keighsie and ayasdollz!

When we spent a day with them out in Arizona, we got to take a ride in their car. As it happens, they had the Transformers score on the stereo. I had seen the movie, but it was raucous enough that I didn't really get a feel for the soundtrack. But this was the kind of lush, majestic program music I really enjoy. So a few weeks ago when putting together a CD order, I decided I wanted that.

It turns out the score was not released originally, the soundtrack CD that was released was the other music from the film. But the fans really wanted the Steve Jablonsky score, so it was released afterward. Apparently only the one pressing, and none of my usual vendors had any copies. I ended up buying one on eBay from a nice fellow in Japan. I'm glad I got it, it's great driving music, thanks!
