People often point to the Social Network as being Trent´s and Atticus´s best score, but such a statement usually comes from people who never listened to this.
Haunting, pulsating, unconventional and heartbreaking, this is a perfect reflection of the very heavy themes presented in the film.

And for those that enjoy an ambundance of bells (yes, bells) and a lack of orchestral arrangements, this is a treat.
A massive accomplishment, Reznor/Ross create something much more significant (and much longer) than a traditional soundtrack here. They experiment with atmosphere, ambience, and abstraction, going degrees further than the film itself to capture the tone of this story. While its 3-hour running time and general experimental nature probably make it discouraging for all but devoted fans of the film or composers, this is truly a musical achievement.
