Other than now knowing they are French and have been lifelong fans of the original TRON, I still don't know much about them.

Having seen the movie I can say that the score is a superb augmentation of what happens on the screen. However, other than a few numbers, the score stands on its own as a separate work.

"Clu" and "The Game Has Changed" are two tracks with a menacing sounding tone. "Clu" is an intense … more
