Buy it... if you're able to separate this ridiculously dumb music from its context and treat its twenty minutes of non-action material as simplistic but smooth atmosphere worthy of a place in a new age music collection.

Avoid it... if you demand any form of intelligence in your listening experiences or expect to hear a continuation of the marginally interesting Decepticon material from the previous score.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: (Steve Jablonsky) Fact: our population is hopelessly stupid. Fact: our population is satisfied by mediocrity. Fact: our population takes too long to learn from previous mistakes. Fact: our population has expendable cash to waste no matter how daunting our economic woes. Fact: our population rewards senseless movies more than intelligent ones. Fact: composers spawned from the Media Ventures/Remote Control studio of streamlined film music exist solely because of all the previous facts. There have been many opportunities through the late 1990's and 2000's to beat a dead horse in the process of flaming movie industry powerhouses like Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay for their adherence to the unspoken laws of stupidity. But the fact remains that films like 2007's Transformers are cash cows, preying upon the limited intellects of worldwide populations (and especially Americans) to reap hundreds of millions of dollars in profit for their studios. It took less than three weeks for a 2009 sequel, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, to reach the $300 million mark, despite scathing reviews from nearly every respected movie critic and audiences who tolerated its exaggerated length while themselves giving it low marks. The storyline of the film is irrelevant; it exists only to show robots fighting robots, with human collateral as a sideshow. It's bad enough that there is no true depth to the plots of these films, for the original cartoon actually had some intriguing political messages, but the really poor, over-complicated design of the robots makes it impossible to quickly identify them during action sequences. Sometimes, it takes Peter Cullen's distinctive voice to come from a heap of metal to realize that Optimus Prime is actually on screen. There's something appropriate about the demise of General Motors at the precise time that their vehicles are contractually bound to these transforming robots; some of the characters in the franchise no longer represent vehicles that exist under GM's ownership since its bankruptcy, presenting one of the only interesting product placement dilemmas to ever exist in a franchise. Roger Ebert, who took time to write that people who applaud Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen actually espouse "wrong" opinions, summed up his review of the picture with a statement that simultaneously criticized the film's music. He said, "If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination."
