"An oasis from the vile obscenity of the human condition."

This score is too freaking cool. It is the hip love child of brainy Philip Glass minimalism and a high-octane Hans Zimmer score gone techno. In grade school, it was the score that all the other scores looked at with despair, thinking, I will never be that awesome.
I won't do any in depth analyses of the music because I don't want the soundtrack to think I'm a geek. I'll just point out an influence which they deftly manipulate. The TRON "Overture" pulls heavily from Copland's "Fanfare for the Common Man," but then Daft Punk adroitly makes it their own.
