Title - 'Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen - The Album'
Artist - Various
'Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen - The Album' is the original soundtrack to the highly anticipated 2009 summer blockbuster of the same name, of course! Featuring tracks from Linkin Park, Green Day, The Fray, Nickelback, Taking Back Sunday, Hoobastank, Cheap Trick and others, the album might sound perfect for all those concerned, but in truth its all a little muddled musically.
With very little variety to expand on, the sequel's soundtrack know's what it wants to be, knows what it has to be, and knows how to make sure you believe it also ... and yet, all the songs have a similar sound and a similar pace!
And, whether you think this is cool or not, a weird thing about this soundtrack that accompanies the movie, is that five of the songs are not even in the movie! Soooooo, why have them at all? Anyway, the first song up is the movie’s signature song, “New Divide” by Linkin Park. Also note that this very same song also appears on the score album, integrated into one of Steve Jablonsky’s ('Texas Chainsaw Massacre') cues. It is followed by Green Day’s “21 Guns,” which shows us nothing new at all.
Cavo (CrueFest '09) provides the third track, with subsequent tracks being Nickelback's “Burn it to the Ground,” The Used’s cover Talking Heads' “Burning Down the House,” and there's also room for Cheap Trick’s new theme song!
