    Honestly, bad score. It was horrible. It had no real rhythm at all, something that can be good, but was bad here. It was not recognizable at all, something that isn't necessary, but is important. It did not deserve the Academy Award for Best Score, and that award should have gone to Alexandre Desplat for The King's Speech or Hans Zimmer for Inception. It might be worth a listen to some,Honestly, bad score. It was horrible. It had no real rhythm at all, something that can be good, but was bad here.

    With help from producer Atticus Ross, Reznor has made a solid soundtrack to David Fincher's movie by doing what he's always done: creating grand industrial rock.

    While The Social Network may not be as iconic as the Dust Brothers' score for Fincher's Fight Club, it's as impressive and listenable in its own way. Reznor fans and film score aficionados will find a lot to like here.

    Admittedly, without Trent's voice and lyrics it lacks the sense of introspection that defines classic NIN albums, but that doesn't matter; the master is back at work. [16 Oct 2010, p.52]
