David Fincher’s The Social Network may be my favorite film of the year, but the score that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross wrote for the film is also phenomenal. I had the chance to speak with Reznor yesterday for an exclusive, 50-minute interview, in which we discussed his creative process at length and previewed several of the best tracks from the score. That interview will go live on the site and on the /Filmcast tomorrow. In the meantime, for today and tomorrow only, Reznor and co. are offering the soundtrack at Amazon for the low, low price of $2.99.
I know it’s hard to buy a soundtrack before you’ve seen the film, but what’s great about this soundtrack is that it works completely as a standalone album. In my opinion, this is one of the best film scores of the year and at $2.99 for 19 tracks, you really can’t go wrong. I’d highly recommend it, so if you’re so inclined, skip that cup of Starbucks tomorrow and buy the album from Amazon. Make sure to come back here and let us know what you think in the comments.
