Tron: Legacy, a messy album release.

Watching TRON Legacy for the second time, I enjoy Daft Punk's score. The presentation of the score outside of context is what is annoying. So there is the "regular" version, it has the most important cues from the score, but some of them are different from the film versions, like 'Disc Wars' in the film has some really cool percussion effects in the rear channels of the DVD/Blu-ray or 'C.L.U.' a harp is used when Tron flies over the ship Flin, his son and the girl (forget her name) are in. To have the alternate film versions of cues used in the albums would be nice. Then there is the 2CD limited edition for the European market, the problem with it is two things- 1) both CD's contents could easily fit on one CD... and 2) it is expensive to import. Then there are the "bonus tracks" from iTunes and Amazon 'Father and Son' and 'Outlands Part 2' which are both great tracks, but only having a lossy option rubs me the wrong way.

An alternative is this massive Blu-ray rip that was done last year, Tron Legacy [Metrotokyo Edition], but it suffers from poor sound quality and it is lossy compressed.

So basically, the albums for this film score SUCK! Not one single one is a good enough presentation of the music as it was in the film! I am so frustrated about this massive mess! Until a one CD presentation is released with all noteworthy cues, or a 2 CD complete is released, I won't be wasting my money on this.

I have to agree whole-heartedly with the reviewer on this review.

I'd give the score as used in the film a 4 star.

As it is on ALL the albums a 3 (tempted to make that a 2).
