The Social Network Official Movie Trailer

“Snappy script, sharp editing, eerily perfect soundtrack and nuanced performances. One of the first films to articulate the psychological power and draw of the internet: what it feeds us and why we feed on it. - Rotten Tomatoes”

Amazon's Customer Review:

Better than the Quake Soundtrack! For a commercial CD, probably commissioned for the movie, I was very impressed with how artistic and techno influenced these songs were.
