London Music Works (along with The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra) in connection with Silva Screen Records has been releasing new performance compilation albums for quite some time now. Just a few months ago I gave away copies of their James Horner and Hans Zimmer compilation albums. This time I've got Steven Jablonsky at the plate hitting a triple with music from the three TRANSFORMERS films.
On this album are sixteen tracks featuring six from TRANSFORMERS (2007), another six from TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN (2009) and four tracks from TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON (2011).
These are really good performances by London Music Works conducted by James Fitzpatrick that rivals the original recording. As a rule, I'm going to partial toward the original score recordings over any re-recording but I have to say there's a depth and clarity in these recordings that I really like. I thought the originals get pretty muddy most of the time. The chorus sounds great and the electronics are deemphasized a little more than in the original recordings.
For the last giveaway of the year I've got five copies of MUSIC FROM THE TRANSFORMERS TRILOGY Performed by the London Music Works on CD to give to loyal AICN readers.
So what do you have to do?
Just send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject: TRANSFORM THE HOLIDAYS! and include your name, mailing address, a valid email address, and either your favorite or least favorite moment of any of the three TRANSFORMERS films. Which ever fires up the most passion in you.
I'll then take all the entires transform them into numbers and blindly pick five at random. Those five chosen will receive this great compilation CD courtesy of Silva Screen Records. The deadline for submission is Sunday, December 11th, at 11:59pm EST. Only one entry per person. International entries will be accepted. Duplicates will be discarded.
That's it! Get your entries in today. I'll be announcing the winners a day or two after the contest closes. Good luck!

Would have to guess that it is a re-do of tracks from the Scores. He mentioned Jablonsky so it's safe to assume that is what he is talking about. At least, I hope to Primus that it is the scores because there are some of the songs from the main soundtracks (of which I have all 3) that just are not going to translate well to an orchestrated form no matter who does the performance.
I'm totally jumping on this since I have not been able to get my hands on any of the Movie Scores for any kind of reasonable price. My oldest boy let me pick up the tracks "Arrival to Earth" and "Autobots" from the first Movie score on his iTunes account but aside from that I have no other orchestrated TF tracks in my collection. This would seriously make my Christmas if I were to be one of the 5 winners but since my luck tends to run between bad and non-existent, I won't be holding my breath on this.
