Not going to lie. I had never heard of Joseph Trapanese before uprising. But he absolutely captures the feel of not just the series but the franchise overall. Personally for me he has aligned himself along side some of my favorite score creators. Love the odes to the original and new movie along with the Uprising series. So happy this was released for the fans. It could have easily not been. Now only thing left for Disney to do is give us a season 2! Which will only lead to another soundtrack.

Joseph Trapanese had this online for listening to the complete CD elsewhere. Fore those who wholly enjoy the series and the techno-style they certainly won't be disappointed.

The music is lifted right off the episodes and the themes themselves. It really is the score to the "T". (Pun intended.) One of the best, in my humble opinion, happens to be the (determined, yet mournful) "Lux's Sacrifice" as well as the "Scars" suite (which brings out the emotional range of both Tron and his nemesis Dyson). But that could be because those three episodes are among my absolute favourites. And then there's, of course, the young protagonist of the series (which carries hope as well as a weight of the responsibility he carries as he trains to follow in Tron's footsteps.) And these are just a small portion of the release. There's so much more...aside from the inspired portion.

Now if only Disney would get it's act together and give the promotion as well as attention this series deserves, place it within a proper timeslot, no more ridicules hiatus, and have a second season in the works. There's so much ground open to cover...which includes much more music to explore.

Here's to also hoping Disney seriously considers releasing a DVD of the first season. And if not a a full second season...at least an additional DVD to tie up any "loose ends". It would be a shame to put all this good effort to waste. Here's to keeping a look out on Amazon.

Usually when mention is made of the score to the 2010 film TRON: Legacy, blissful ignorance yields only that film's composers in one's mind: electronic duo Daft Punk. TRON: Legacy's score has to date sold over a half-million copies, and has been highly praised for its perfect musical fit to the TRON universe with its electronic and orchestral sonic palette. Though Joseph Trapanese didn't compose any of TRON: Legacy's songs per se, he was present with Daft Punk members Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter for the two-year-long process of scoring TRON: Legacy, and all arranging of and orchestration for TRON: Legacy was done by Trapanese. Given these facts, it therefore makes Trapanese the perfect musical fit to the score composition for TRON: Uprising, the animated Disney XD TV show whose events are set between the original TRON from 1982 and TRON: Legacy.

And right from the start, Trapanese displays his vision for TRON: Uprising, utilizing derivative influence from TRON: Legacy's score yet painting his own sonic canvas. Opening track "Beck's Theme - Lightbike Battle" presents the eponymous and recurring theme that sets the stage for the album, an enveloping melody wrapping in orchestral and electronic flourishes that coalesce in a powerful conclusion. "Paige's Past," one of the most varied yet grounded tracks, introduces shimmering electronic motes and soft pulses which pave the way for a calm and melancholic backdrop, before breaking into rousing guitar effects and reverb layered with orchestral touches. It becomes evident very early on that Trapanese is highly skilled at layering TRON: Legacy's inspirational elements atop other wavering effects and sequences.

I like what Joseph Trapanese has done for the ambiance of the Tron World (The Grid). I did like what Daft Punk did as well, and what Mr. Trapanese has done is very complimentary. The movie started to give us a new look at the Grid and DP gave us a bold soundtrack. The cartoon show is fleshing out the world with new characters and settings and the music adds a certain character to the universe which I like a lot. And I find the tunes very "hummable." I found it very difficult to hum the DP tracks, but JT's are easier and I feel very characteristic of each of the new players.

I did not give it a 5 star rating because I thought some of the "mixes" were OK. Not particular to my taste, but not bad. Maybe they will grow on me.

Kudos to Mr Trapanese for bringing us another beautiful collection of TRON music. This music is more along the lines of TRON Legacy's Daft Punk Soundtrack (which I believe Mr Trapanese was also a part of mixing and creating). These are all new songs never before released on a CD or MP3 album. Brilliant music! Thank you Mr. Trapanese. You have the power of the users.

Look, this isn't Daft Punk. This is mainly an orchestral score with lots of elements of electronica mixed in. It's a natural lead-up to Daft Punk's excellent score for TRON: Legacy. If you're a fan of the show, then this provides some goosebumps while listening. Some of Trapanese's work is simply awesome. I love the introduction theme for Beck. The one thing that caught me off guard was that some of the songs can feel like a compilation of various tracks. This is a TV show, not a film. So the score can be sporadic with abrupt transitions. That can lead to a herky jerky listen at first, but it works overall. It doesn't flow as well as the retail version of the Legacy score, but what IS here works. Very happy I jumped on this show and score.
