When it was announced that Daft Punk would be composing the soundtrack for TRON: Legacy, it struck me as a absolute stroke of genius. And now, after listening to a 20 minute “preview mix” of the duo’s soundtrack, I can confirm that: Daft Punk composing the soundtrack for TRON: Legacy was an absolute stroke of genius. It is, as the kids would say, “slammin’ ”: a lovely mix of hard-hitting beats, sublime basswork, and soaring atmospherica.
TRON: Legacy arrives in theatres on December 17, 2010. Daft Punk’s soundtrack will be released on December 7.
