5.0 out of 5 stars Stands on its own September 28, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Scores for films these days have become canned sounding and typical. When I was a kid (1970s) soundtracks used to be as important as every other element of the film and not simply something slapped on by some score jockey to make the film complete. Decades later I still enjoy the score to Star Wars, A Clockwork Orange, Superman, Akira, etc... I remember back in the day even garbage films would have a decent score. Time Rider and Remo Williams are 2 examples. Today this is no longer the norm and dozens and dozens of BIG FILM scores come and go and I leave theaters having not noticed the music at all. Once in a while I am surprised. Recent films like There Will Be Blood, Code 46, and most recently MONSTERS all had decent music scores. The social network is no exception, delivering, in my opinion, one of the finest scores to come along in quite some time. That the score stands alone on its own as listenable, tangible music, long before I have even seen the film is testament to its power and visceral nature.

I like the minimal nature of the music and am reminded, somewhat, of Aphex Twin. There is also an undercurrent, here and there, of early classic video game sounds peppered throughout. It's not overused and I enjoy these sounds. They help give the score a tangential connection back to the first Atari some of us older dudes knew as the very first piece of real technology that came into our homes and altered our lives. Since then the pace of new technology has quickened and with the internet and computers the classic version of the inventor and tinkerer has been literally reborn as young software programmers with ideas, rather than devices. I love how Mark Zuckerberg changed the world from his dorm room. I also love how I am noticing a history of electronics embedded and layered within this fantastic music.

I could go on and on but for the price that this score is being offered at, seriously, stop reading and download it already.

5.0 out of 5 stars trent reznor at his very best September 28, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
if you appreciate all that trent reznor has done (whether it's nine inch nails or how to destroy angels or the side projects he's done for numerous movie soundtracks and video games), you will love this! reminiscent of his 4-part "ghosts" album with nine inch nails collaborator atticus ross... this beautifully melodic soundtrack sets the mood and tone for what essentially is, a david fincher film.

5.0 out of 5 stars a seductive/destructive electronic score September 28, 2010
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The score is electronically based, a lot of use of drum machines and warm synths, delicately sprinkled with subtle "hot noise",guitar drones, and crunchy textures. The sound is succulent and sweet yet aggravated in a highly controlled manner of wear and tear. When listening to the music, I was getting a sense of a corruption brewing underneath all the audio seduction. Quite unlike anything out there, in terms of scores, and another progressive step for the creative duo. It is an important album for film-philes, as well as the general electronic music fan base as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Synapse Candy January 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD
A great, modern, ambient music exploration presenting audio shaping produced by a variety of (sometimes) obscure instruments; with tracks either flowing gracefully or pulsating rhythmically. Love the variety. Excellent background music for doing computer work, be it writing programs, paying bills; or simply, aimlessly, browsing the web. I know these tracks help me to concentrate, which leads me to ponder whether or not the artists used various, masked, subliminal brain entraining frequencies to heighten the listener's creative genius, spurring us on to not only create something new, but also to reconfigure existing ideas together in a new way. Great album which (as another reviewer stated), stands on its own. You absolutely do not need to have seen the movie to enjoy owning this recording.

Many times, reviews on Amazon will also include mention of another, related piece of work. I've been made aware of a lot of wonderful, different artists and recordings this way. Recently, I found an entertaining single recording, "My Simple Request", which uses "Facebook" as its canvas to tell a story of obsession. It's a fun one to share with family & friends, especially those exposed to social networks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electronic music for the masses March 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After listening to this soundtrack following a viewing of the movie, I could not help but be reminded of my Tangerine Dream collection. Quite a few reviewers here compare this soundtrack to other works by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross and others contributing to this genre of music in recent years, but I was surprised to read only one review that even mentioned German electronic pioneer Tangerine Dream. In my opinion, track #3 "A Familiar Taste" and track #5 "Intriguing Possibilities" (originally "In Evidence") are especially reminiscent of earlier Tangerine Dream works, earlier as in "Optical Race" (1988) and "Melrose" (1990) from the "Melrose Years" rather than "Electronic Meditation" (1970) from the "Pink Years", although the spirit of the group can be heard throughout the entire soundtrack. It so happens that in an interview with "Social Network" sound editor Ren Klyce, it was commented that director David Fincher's goal was to "reinvent the film-going experience that we had back in the 80's, back when films were scored electronically. He wanted to have that feeling in the audience of getting the sensation of, 'Wow, this is a very unusual soundtrack. I've never heard Tangerine Dream before.' But he wanted to do it in a modern way with a modern twist." Exactly. And track #2 "In Motion" (originally "Let the Hacking Begin") is even danceable, one of the best since Skinny Puppy's "Who's Laughing Now" on the "Bad Influence" soundtrack that can also be found on "VIVIsectVI" (1988). Sure Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross were influenced by their predecessors. So what? This soundtrack is one of the few that can be listened to quietly while in a reflective mode or in deep concentration during a work project, on long car drives on winding roads, or even turned up to a volume of 11. The best praise I can offer such an album since my review of Autechre's "Incunubula" (1993), albeit "Social Network" is electronic music for the masses.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre and unconnected.
This should not have been offered as a stand alone compostition. It is strictly for the movie. It is not thematic and generally disconnected one track from another. Read more

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross need to keep up the great work with soundtracks like this one. It's ambient and good for calm driving in heavy traffic.

Blu?
I haven't heard anything about Blu-audio or DVD audio quality recording of this soundtrack, just regular CD quality, as far as I know.
