I second that. Best thing about the film.
The best bit of the film is the three minutes without dialogue in which the Autobots arrive on Earth and take their disguise modes, then transform to robot mode for the first time. Perfectly sums up the whole Transformers concept in my opinion (the war being a secondary concept). Those few minutes were wonderfully shot, SFXed and edited, but without the music it wouldn't have moved me at all.
Film soundtracks are hugely important elements. (I have dozens of my favourites on CD, from The Lord of the Rings - all three - to The Pink Panther.)
Little is known about this goblin beyond its dual role as an offensive weapon and teapot.
I have to admit I haven't heard the film score outside of the context of the film as yet. But when I was in the cinema one of the things that did impress me was the score. I have a bit of a love for a good score myself, and I think it can be vital to making or breaking a film (try to imagine "For a few Dollars More" with a different score for example...).
I did think that the music for "Transformers" was one of the things that they got very right (along with some of the effects work), and was the making of some of the scenes.
Must get around to sampling the score outside of its cinematic context at some point.

I finally got this today after originally ordering it from HMV on the 1st of December last year. I got an email from HMV a couple of weeks ago saying that the CD had been deleted and that they couldn't find it anywhere else. Funny that I was able to get if off a store from Ebay.
