Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014
I've been revisiting the Transformers pentalogy the past two weeks, and every time I finished one installment, I thought to myself "this has to be the best Transformers mix and the best film of the franchise"
. And then today it was time for T:AoE, a film that I haven't revisited as much as the others, for some reason or other.
I was blown away by it, and often almost in a literal sense. This track is very powerful and loud, and was shaken constantly throughout its (very long) running time. Knowing this mix is very hot, I listened to it at -18, with sub 2db hot. Even at this moderate volume the mix was relentless, and had I been alone, I gladly would have risked my sub and house a bit more. The track is hot as f--, but in this particular case I didn't mind at all, because it fitted the on-screen madness quite appropriately.
Much like Aquaman
, most of the energy is above 30hz, but it has good levels down to low 20s, so the bass effects manage to bring enough weight to make them sound quite powerful. The bass overall I found it simply fantastic, and tremendously fun, with some wonderful bass sweeps that made me feel I was going to float.
However, the whole audio presentation is phenomenal. The surround activity was very enveloping, the sound was clear and highly detailed, with great directionality and superb sound design. This soundtrack makes you feel you're in there. The audio is loud, but I still found it pretty dynamic, it didn't sound compressed to me at all, unlike, for example, some Fast & Furious soundtracks. You can tell I was vowed by this audio track. It's extremely complex, and yet it's perfectly clear and articulated. It's really state-of-the-art.
Now, I have to rewatch The Last Knight
. I wonder if it'll be possible to leave me thinking "No way! THIS is even better"
I know most in here have already watched it (and probably agree with me), but I just wanted to share my impressions.
