Daft Punk: "Tron Legacy" Soundtrack

Daft Punk, the French duo, provides the classical electronic jazzy soundtrack for the fil "Tron Legacy."  Daft Punk is the sleek, futuristic, robot-mask-wearing Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.
Then, a universal sigh. The orchestral soundtrack album arrived 11 days before "Tron: Legacy" hit theaters December 17.  Critics suggest listening to music in a theater because the music is so intimately tied to the film. where torrents of 3-D goodness can wash over your eyeballs while you pay very close attention to your They suggest tuning your ears to the cool synthesizer bubbling beneath the conversations. Focus on the digital pulse coursing through this movie.

The duo makes a cameo in a nightclub scene that seems to have been written into the script just so they could play "Derezzed," a high-gloss speaker-thumper in the Daft Punk tradition. Almost everywhere else, Bangalter and de Homem-Christo don't sound nearly as Daft Punky. Instead, they conduct an 85-piece orchestra through the drifts and swells practically necessary to give the film's various fight scenes, chase scenes and fight-slash-chase scenes the requisite va-voom. But even when the timpanis reach peak rumble, Daft Punk's electric cool never wanes. (Wash Post, 12/25/2010)
