    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.

Starting off with a beautiful piece, consisting primarily of strings and your typical "epic" soundtrack fanfare, the album is like a film in itself. The suspense builds up, and song by song, it slowly gets more intense, up to the penultimate track, which is the climax. A beautiful combination of strings, trumpets, synthesizers, and keys comes together seamlessly all throughout the album. That said, the album isn't perfect, with some tracks feeling a bit underwhelming compared the one that came before, or the one that comes after. That said, Daft Punk shows their musical prowess is as fine tuned as a pair of robots can be. A must buy for lovers of both theatrical scores and electronica, the Tron Legacy soundtrack is a must buy. Expand

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.
