Daft Punk, Tron: Legacy
Official release date: December 7
The Verdict: You’d better sit down for this (you won’t be dancing anyway): Daft Punk’s massively anticipated soundtrack for Tron: Legacy, which found its way online last night, doesn’t sound much like a Daft Punk album. Despite early snippets that made it seem like more of the same from the French disco robots, it’s mostly a (completely appropriately!) serious-faced orchestral score with sinister strings and occasional loud, farting brass (maybe DP performed an inception on Hans Zimmer). So it’s fine for what it is, but don’t put it on at a party.
