It was only inevitable that Daft Punk's inspirational soundtrack to Tron Legacy would get commercially remixed by some of the most "recognized" DJ's around the globe. As much as I was looking forward to this album though, it's somewhat of a mixed bag. Some of the tracks are pretty good and worth listening to, maybe two or three mixes that I would consider to be exceptional, the rest sound very little like they were inspired by DP's music from Tron Legacy and I'd rather some of the better R3J3CT3D mixes by artists like Junkie XL, Groove, Dekoi and Tame Impala (found only on the Australian release of R3CONF1GUR3D replacing Photek's mix) would have been included on this album instead. Whoever produced this didn't really select the best demos and more often than not I would rather just listen to Daft Punk's soundtrack because it is simply perfect the way it is. I think the only artists who could have taken DP's score and made a really mind-blowing remix album would have been DP themselves and it's baffling why they didn't because this would have been the perfect opportunity for them to do so. Sigh...

Derezzed (The Glitch Mob Remix) - Not too bad but compared to DP's masterful mix from the film it's just average.

Fall (M83 Vs. Big Black Delta Mix) - This one gets my vote for worst track on the album. The soprano "Na-na-naa" vocals are intrusive and annoying playing over the pounding percussion of Fall. Whoever thought it was a good idea to include this one deserves to be subjected to immediate derezolution. In fact, I'm "derezzing" it off my playlist. Gone.

Dave Cordes needs to listen to the album again. The point of R3C0NF1GUR3D was not to sound like Daft Punk or try to outdo their work. An attempt like that would be preposterous.

I don't know if Cordes listens to a lot of remix material, or the groups or artists on this album, but I know that I do. Probably over 80% of the music I listen to is in the electronica/remix genre. This is exactly what I expected this album would sound like when it was announced, and this is exactly what electronic music is all about: taking stems of the masterworks and making them your own.

I expected it to be like sitting in Caster's club when DJ's other than Daft Punk were in the booth mixing the soundtrack music, and that's what I got! I think what Cordes may have missed is that you should expect each track to sound like the style of the artist who remixed it.

1. Derezzed (Remixed by The Glitch Mob)

Fantastic bass line that will definitely drop the floor in the club. And it adds more power to an already powerful track. And the use of DP's original composition in the intro and in in the breaks is awesome. Nicely interpreted track by the boys in the Glitch Mob.

2. Fall (Remixed by M83 VS Big Black Delta)

Being a big fan of the works of M83, I was not surprised by this track at all. In fact, I was delightfully impressed by its originality. This would fit in perfectly with anything M83 has ever done, yet would fit in with many of Daft Punk's deeper tracks. That's exactly how it should be.

3. The Grid (Remixed by The Crystal Method)

The Crystal Method are experts at delivering intense beats, mystique, edge, breaking rhythm, and power to their music, and they do not disappoint here.

This album is a phenomenal companion to the original soundtrack by Daft Punk. The tracks are true to the originals with excellent remixing and re-imagining. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the movie.

I have the original Legacy soundtrack plus this, Tron Legacy "Reconfigured". Wow. It is absolutely amazing. It blows me away!

Most "remix project" albums I find to be pretty lame. But not this one. This is how it ought to be done. It features a large variety of excellent artists, each with their own styles. And no one is trying to copy Daft Punk either. The original is a great soundtrack in itself. This album takes it all to the next level.

I had heard a song from this here and there on Pandora, but it wasn't until I bought the album that I realized how truly great it is. This isn't just one song remixed over and over, like you'd think they would do with Derezzed. It is a wide variety of songs from the whole soundtrack. Plus it is meaty, with 15 songs playing well over an hour. You get your money's worth.

I will always love Daft Punk's original soundtrack. But this is a great companion that is in some ways even better than the original. Highly recommended!

Man. Listening to this makes me wish a Tron 3 movie would come out. Wouldn't that be the bomb?

I do love the film and I do love the soundtrack from Daft Punk. Hell, I even own the Tron pinball machine!

All of the songs are geared more for a club and dancing vs. the soundtrack is obviously less so. The odd thing is, I got was I was looking for, more driving beats, less "moody," etc. But I just wasn't blown away with these remixes. I liked The Glitch Mob's Derezzed remix but the Avicii one was just painful to listen to. There are a few more that stuck out like The Crystal Method's remix and the End of Line one. The rest were just kind of ho-hum for me.

I would've loved to hear a Chemical Brothers take on one the songs, too.
