The Word On... Daft Punk, Tron: legacy (ost)
Friday 10 December 2010
"What Daft Punk have done is to metaphorically cast off the robot masks for the first time and show their unadorned faces to the world. In taking two genres of music: classical and electronica and fusing them into a beautiful, elegant hybrid, they break new, mercurial ground for a mainstream dance act." drownedin sound.com
"Although not musically revolutionary, 'Tron: Legacy' suggests the adrenaline rush of a black panther roaming nearby in the darkness, heard but not yet seen." bbc.co.uk/music
"Only occasionally do the pair succumb to Hollywood cliché... but when they really let rip with the 303s on the "End Titles", the synth lines circling like birds of prey, this music could not be by anybody else." musicomh.com
