I saw a preview of The Social Network on Monday night. I enjoyed it a lot as it was sharp, funny and just a little bit dark. Who cares if the story isn’t entirely accurate, it’s a great film.
As usual however, I gave the soundtrack most of my attention.
It was the scene set in what I’m reliably informed could be the Ruby Sky club in San Francisco that made me sit up though. The track was Sound Of Violence by Dennis De Laat (see below), which, when played on full through decent speakers – I defy anyone not to want to dance to.
Digging deeper, it seems that the man (well, one of them) responsible for the music is none other than Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, which explains a lot.
What’s more, you can hear him talking about the soundtrack – as well download a five track sampler ahead of the album’s launch – by clicking here. Enjoy.
