Recommended listening: Daft Punk - TRON: Legacy
I wasn’t in cinema for the whole year. I will watch only one movie. And this movie will be this one: “TRON: Legacy”. I’m a child of the eighties and the original Tron was a very important movie for me as it was Strange Days for the nineties. However i still have to wait. Can’t wait. That said, the soundtrack is already available. And as some people said and wrote, there isn’t a more obvious, a more cogent choice than Daft Punk for the soundtrack. And it’s really great. However it’s not the kind of music you expect, when you listened to earlier works of Mr. Thomas Bangalter and Mr. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. Nothing like “Harder,better, faster, stronger”. It’s music for a movie, not for the dancefloor. It’s a fusion of classical music - of monumentally orchestrated soundtracks - with electronic. As long as i wasn’t able to see Tron Legacy, it had to pass the other test: And yes, i’m able to imagine the Tron of the eighties with this music. From my point of view it’s a great piece of music. Recommended listening: “Solar Sailer”, obviously “The game has changed” and “Disc Wars”.
