Details Release Date: Dec 07, 2010; Lead Performance: Daft Punk; Genre: Soundtracks

This is a film score, not a Daft Punk album. Perhaps that sounds like an obvious disclaimer, but it’s important to bear in mind for anyone expecting the irresistible grooves and playful loops found on the French house duo’s proper releases. Instead on TRON: Legacy, they lead an orchestra through incidental cues that must sound awfully dramatic inside a multiplex. Out here in the real world, it’s background music at best, with only brief hints of what makes Daft so great. B
