The power of the internet catapulted this classical soundtrack into public consciousness, thanks to a few angry fans and an online petition. A new entry in the chart for 2014.
After its release in 2007, film music fans rushed to buy 'Transformers: The Album', hoping to hear the instrumental tracks composed by Steve Jablonsky. Instead, the soundtrack featured a selection of rap and rock music — some of which hadn't appeared in the original film. Cue internet outrage, and an angry mob of petition-signing classical fans, who lobbied the record company to release 'Transformers: The Score'. Two months, and 5,505 signatures later, Warner Bros. Records announced the classical album release, and Jablonsky's powerful score stormed the chart.
