Great Soundtrack: 'Hanna'

The Chemical Brothers have been EDM and techno pioneers and legends since their heyday in the mid-90's yet, it took until 2011 for someone like director Joe Wright to have them score a film. The film would eventually be the girl-power badass action thriller, Hanna. The score, like it's blockbuster cast featuring Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett, Saoirse Ronan, packs a significant punch that unleashes a digital sound score over some fantastic action-storytelling. With the English DJ duo counting this soundtrack as one of their own releases like Dig Your Own Hole and Surrender, it makes us wonder, why hasn't Chemical Brothers scored more films since? And, since it is a record that stands on it's own, it is one of the duo's best work in years.
