    Tron: Legacy is a remarkable reminder of how electronic music can equal the emotional nuance and resonance of any ballad, torch song or symphonic pop track.

    That Daft Punk achieved this career highlight with Tron Legacy is yet another example of the duo's adaptable form, and a sign that there is still uncharted territory beneath those helmets.

    By blending past and present (and future), Daft Punk has created an album that speaks not only to the movie it scores, but also to the evolution of music that has allowed them to create the album in the first place.

    That Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter would score Tron: Legacy seems destined.

    For all of its familiar traces, this soundtrack offers little more than 22 pleasant teasers to distract die-hards until the duo undergo a proper reboot.

    Daft Punk have done their homework, and there's enough here to suggest that, with a bit of debugging, they'll have no problem hitting all the right buttons next time.

    It's all too clear Disney wanted the cachet, not the daft nor the punk. Trick yourselves into thinking the robots are twisting some radical new spin on the form if you wish, but I'm logging off now.

While their past work has always left me feeling a bit underwhelmed, they've really shown real ability as composers with Tron: Legacy. Who knew techno and orchestral could work this well together?

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is one of the best Orchestral-Electronic-crossover-soundtrack I have ever heard.
    Starting with "The Grid" as the "real" Intro to this soundtrack the motives are always appear in many variations through the CD. Highlights: The Son of Flynn, End Of Line, Derezzed, Solar Sailer, TRON Legacy
    It's great to hear the teamwork of Daft Punk and Joseph Trapanese was successful.

    Who better to compose the music for one of the most visually appealing movies in recent history than the French electronic music duo DaftWho better to compose the music for one of the most visually appealing movies in recent history than the French electronic music duo Daft Punk? Their last record, Human After All, may not have been as good as their fans myself included hoped for, yet I hadn’t lost any interest in them and was pumped to hear what they’ve created for Tron: Legacy. Not unexpectedly, a lot of the tracks are working as underlying instrumentation of the movie and aren’t such huge euphoric songs. However, every single one of them is unique and worthy to listen to on its own. And to make the album even more exciting, we have outstanding hymns la Derezzed, The Son of Flynn, Outlands, End of Line, or the orchestral masterpiece Adagio for Tron. Maybe even more fantastic are the beginning and the ending of the album Overture and Tron Legacy (End Titles), two gems that make it absolutely legitimate to name Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo the Mozart and Beethoven of our generation. Even if you disliked the movie, this soundtrack is one of the best musical backgrounds any movie has had in cinema history and one of the best work Daft Punk has done in their career. Hats off!

Daft Punk are capable of so much better, but they seem reliant on past glories as we tick over the 5th year since the duo have produced anything substantial. Here they channel everyone else but themselves; Wagner, Zimmer, Elfman, Gregson-Williams, Vangelis. But the imitation is weak, and ultimately getting Daft Punk on board feels entirely pointless.
