The first score delivered the goods. Pretty typical MV stuff, but at least it had some decent action scenes and some themes that you could sink your teeth into. Kind of like an MV/RC greatest hits.

Transformers 3 plays like a collection of B-sides, and they are still trumpeting the fact that they have boiled their entire blockbuster sensibilities down to one blaring note. It works when you are also seeing a giant metal tentacle chewing through architecture; not so much when you are just listening to it.

Some of the underlying electronics are decent and badass-sounding but the vibe is always ruined by some incredibly bland chord progression for brass, reflecting the sad fact that, in the end, Michael Bay wants us to take Transformers seriously.

The best track is "Impress Me," a pluckier update of the already plucky Witwicky theme.

Bay might as well have stuck with Trevor Rabin
