Transformers The Movie (Soundtrack)
Ah, nostalgia. Back in the 80s, I saw Transformers: the Movie at least a dozen times, so it was only natural that I bought this album in the early 90s, seeing as DVDs weren't invented yet. Most of the soundtrack is stirring 80s Hair Rock from obscure bands - the obvious exceptions being a track from "Weird" Al Yankovic, and three synthesizer pieces from Vince DiCola, who scored most of the movie. For this reason, the album has a dubiously small market: Transformers fans who really liked the movie. People like me, for whom "Nothin's Gonna Stand In Our Way" evokes Hot Rod's struggle with a giant robot squid, and can picture a big red truck driving over a bridge when "The Touch" plays.
Or can quote great swathes of the script from memory.
Ahem, anyway, the highlight for me is DiCola's work, so I think it's a shame so little of his work on the movie was included.
