You might as well know now that I think what they’re going to be putting out there is unlike anything I’ve ever seen a composer do with a film score, at least in my lifetime. I really do think that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ score for The Social Network stands on its own as a brilliant album. The music tells a story. With Dragon Tattoo it’s at a whole different level. The whole thing is mind-boggling. They really have, I think, reinvented the wheel in a way — similar to what Peter Gabriel did with Passion of the Christ and Bob Dylan with Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. People who love movie scores tend to fall into two categories -the traditionalists, who like film composers who stick to the rules of the medium. And then those who prefer the composers who work outside the confines of tradition. If you’re in the latter group, you are in for a major treat. The remix of Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song is making the rounds – you can watch it with visuals at Pitch Fork Media’s website. Visuals created by David Fincher! Here it is without.
In the meantime, get your hands on the DELUXE soundtrack asap.
