While we didn't think much of the actual movie, one reason soundtrack and score fans might want to check out the film, is that it boasts brand new music from Atticus Ross alongside past collaborators, Claudia Sarne and Leopold Ross. The Oscar winner behind "The Social Network" score that he co-wrote with Trent Reznor, has been steadily been getting more cinema work, contributing to the team of talented musicians on the Mexican drama "Days Of Grace," and reteaming with Reznor on "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." But this time around, he's giving folks a bit of a peek into his creative process.

While we didn't think much of the actual movie, one reason soundtrack and score fans might want to check out "Broken City" is that it boasts brand new music from Atticus Ross, alongside past collaborators Claudia Sarne and Leopold Ross. The Oscar winner behind "The Social Network" score, which he co-wrote with Trent Reznor, has been steadily getting more cinema work, contributing to the team of talented musicians on the Mexican drama "Days Of Grace," and reteaming with Reznor on "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." But this time around, he's giving folks a bit of a peek into his creative process.

The composer/musician has curated a music playlist exclusively for Rdio that delves into this inspirations, and it's pretty solid stuff. Mostly looking back to the past, the mixtape of sorts is bookended by David Bowie, features cuts from Tangerine Dream and Giorgio Moroder and their work for "Risky Business" and "Midnight Express" respectively, and acts like Kraftwerk, Burial, The Cure, Mogwai and out of place, but no less awesome, Nina Simone. A couple of Ross' own tracks from "Broken City" are in there as well.

At the end of a long week, it's definitely worth a listen. "Broken City" is in theaters now and the score is available digitally.
