    First and foremost, this is a remix album; with very little to do with Daft Punk, apart from the odd sampling. The album itself, is not at all bad, and contains remixes from - well known electronic artists such as: The Glitch Mob, M83, Moby, Photek and Avicii. And even artists that you might even grow to like: Com Truise and Pretty Lights.

    In my honest opinion, the tracks 2 (Fall - M83, Big Black Delta), 10 (Encom Part 2 - Com Truise) and 14 (Solar Sailer - Pretty Lights) are the highlights of the album and even would say getting the album would be worth it, even for those songs. If not, listen to them on YouTube, you won't be disappointed.

    This is what the Tron Legacy soundtrack should have been. As much as I may have enjoyed the Tron Legacy OST, the ost was still a very contrasting work. Their electronica never seemed to fully blend and merge with the orchestral tone. It was a valiant effort for sure but it is not classic.

Full of life and energy, full of wild beats that just pump colour into what ever they're playing over. Any Daft Punk fan should pick it up and give it a spin. Expand

    Losing much of the atmosphere of the TRON: Legacy soundtrack in exchange for the danceable tracks people have come to expect from Daft Punk releases. It's so different I would even recommend it to those who didn't enjoy the soundtrack to begin with.

    Although lacking the cohesion and consistency of Daft Punk's own work, Reconfigured brings what many Daft Punk fans lamented the lack of in Tron: Legacy - the energy, excitement and joy that made Homework and Discovery so memorable.

Reconfigured ditches the moodiness and suspense for the better - it comes out as the Tron Soundtrack that delivers what the fans wanted and expected from Daft Punk, not what the film's producer required. A must listen. Highlights: The Grid (The Crystal Method Remix), Rinzler (Kaskade Remix) Expand

    Just as the TRON: Legacy soundtrack was sometimes stirring, then, these remixes are sometimes danceable, but despite what their rote efficacy might trick your ears into believing, that doesn't make any of them worth a damn.

    TRON: Legacy Reconfigured succeeds as much as most remix projects do, which is to say about 50% of the time, and without Daft Punk's name attached to the project it's doubtful it would have attracted much attention.

    It's by turns soft and loud, gentle and harsh, humanistic and totally machine. And it's very, very danceable. It's the album you were hoping Daft Punk would write last time, only Daft Punk didn't write it-but they did score a major assist from their friends here.
