MMAM - Vol. 22

It's almost the end of 2010, and with the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011, what does that give us...besides a new year? Another TRANSFORMERS movie! Duh! Well, same could be said about PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, but I haven't been rockin' to that as of late. In case you're noticing a theme, I tend to post tracks of songs I really dig or have been having on repeat a lot the past week. Well, this week just so happens to be Steve Jablonsky's rather ingenious score for TRANSFORMERS. The first one. Jablonsky did do some good work on REVENGE OF THE FALLEN, but not enough to be memorable; at least it was a saving grace for the botched up production.

"Arrival to Earth" is the epitome of perfection, a true testament to Jablonsky's competent ability to conduct when given good material to work with. This track conveys all the wonder and splendor of not only the movie, but the notion of giant frakkin' robots from space!!!! This scene, and the music, gave to me what I assume seeing CLOSE ENCOUNTERS or STAR WARS to children back when they were released gave them: awe and excitement, the idea that the fantastical can happen. Enjoy. And Happy New Year!
