At the beginning of last year’s summer I showed myself skeptic with respect to a movie solely based on facebook and its founders, but showed a lot of interest in its soundtrack penned by Reznor and Atticus Ross. In the meantime, I saw the Social Network, I’ve sampled the soundtrack and I have to admit they’re both up par. Not that it holds any relevance, but the critics are also all over the movie, gaining nomination and awards one after another, and what’s somewhat surprising was last night Golden Globe award for best soundtrack awarded to the two. Awkwardly enough, during his acceptance speech Reznor decided to talk about Grammys, where we won numerous awards with NIN but never really attended any award or Grammy party. “Not to be disrespectful, but the weight of a Grammy feels much less important than the film side of this. The music business has very much done everything it can to lessen the weight and importance of music as art.” Congrats, Trent and Atticus!
