TRON Legacy was by far my favorite, though the main theme from the original is pretty underrated. I have never heard the Uprising soundtrack, 2.0 had a few interesting tracks, and Reconfigured had two AMAZING remixes.

I think Tron: Legacy was definitely the most emotional for me. Something about those deep orchestral notes (in Adagio especially), feeling the vibrations in your gut like the Cello's bow is grating across your heart-strings . . . I grit my teeth and cry every time man. every time... *sniff* But then hearing the bleepy-bloopy sound of electronics in the background and harsh, mind-numbing bass of the club tying everything together into a digital world, ah. Just speaks to me on a spiritual level.
Never really got into the Original Tron soundtrack. Maybe I need to give it a better chance though. And as far as the REconfigured album . . . AHHHH. For one I already like remixes, and to remix some of my favorite music into my favorite genre by some of my favorite artists? Mm. Yeah. Close second. Or maybe a tie . . .
As you can tell I have some very strong feelings for these albums, lol XD Can't pick! I love it all It helps when you have really nice headphones haha
This Is the Kit, Moonshine Freeze After three previous offerings, Moonshine Freeze is the peak of an uphill path that This Is the Kit’s Kate Stables has traced since her earliest recordings at the turn of the decade. Although this record features legendary producer John Parish (PJ Harvey, Perfume Genius) and The National’s Aaron Dessner (who produced TITK’s previous album, Bashed Out), Stables’s impressive singing and highly mulled-over songwriting ensure that her creativity remains front and center. Pensive, banjo-driven delicacies like “Bulletproof” live comfortably alongside and sturdy grooves like “Hotter Colder.” With so many intricacies, even if you don’t immediately find a light in the relative dusk of Stables’s best album to date, consuming her songs in a near-frozen state of relaxation—perhaps even contemplation—might just do the trick. The rewards to be reaped are immense. —Max Freedman
