Product Overview

Grammy award winning electronic duo Daft Punk - who takes music as seriously as TRON fans take computer references - is scoring the upcoming film TRON: Legacy. It's no accident that the group's two visionary musicians, Guy-Manuel de Homen-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, are TRON fans too. Having grown up with an admiration for the ground-breaking TRON film in the 80s, Daft Punk took on the scoring of the next chapter of the story with extraordinary thought and precision. The critically acclaimed French duo composed and produced the album. The Duo assembled a symphony of one hundred world class musicians in London and recorded the orchestra at AIR Lyndhurst Studios, Britain's premier scoring facility.

Sci-fi, film, and music fans alike cheered when it was announced Daft Punk would score Tron: Legacy, the sequel to the 1982 classic Tron. After all, the French duo's robo-aesthetic owed a notable debt to the film's forward-thinking, playful, yet ominous take on technology. On pieces like "The Game Has Changed," Daft Punk pay homage to their legacy as well as Tron's, fusing their aerodynamic disco-house with propulsive orchestral elements.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Daft Punk cut much of TRON: LEGACY in London with a 100-piece orchestra....On 'The Game Has Changed,' they swell and flutter alongside acid-damaged synths and digital thuds, suggesting a particularly suspenseful Radiohead track."
CMJ - "While most definitely a soundtrack, TRON: LEGACY works as a standalone album due to the gauntlet of emotions that it runs through..."
Billboard (p.24) - "[The duo] surprises with the austere beauty of cuts like 'Adagio for Tron' and its seamless fusion of organic and electronic elements."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.95) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] brace of tracks -- the 303 bass nightmare of 'Derezzed' and 'End Titles' -- startle with squelchy metallic madness."
Paste (magazine) - "TRON: LEGACY is, amazingly, the duo's best work in years....All 22 pieces flow almost seamlessly with the same textural template: orchestral arrangements augmented with their trademark, gloriously recorded sequenced synthesizers."
Clash (magazine) - "[A] studiously solid offering that has all the grandeur and dystopian trajectory of acclaimed godfather of cinematic scores Vangelis but with the odd cheeky electronic bed from which their sonic structures can twist and grow."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.79) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "TRON sounds big, loud, and is an accomplished mix of old synth, digital modernism and orchestra."
