A Good Addition

ActionHero13

Not Casino Royale by any means. But Arnold gives another great addition. The album seems to have been edited oddly. No real finale to the abum and alot of short cues. It's good fun Bond score without the Bond theme and alot of real dark moments. This one is gonna be good!

First to Review! Perfect Album

ThePlayright

This is one of the few soundtrackts thats doesnt reveal to much about the plot. i was very pleased with a number of the fasy paced numbers. This is the type of music that cam to define bond. It brings back the way movie music used to be made

David Arnold Leaves you Shaken and Stirred...

Composer David Arnold will leave you breathless with 'Quantum of Solace,' his fifth outing as composer for the Bond series. Not as heavy handed with the Bond theme as in Tomorrow Never Dies nor with his disregard of the title song as in Die Another Day, Arnold has found a fresh, intense and wonderful sound with this new addition to the Bond canon. Following in the style he started with Casino Royale, this soundtrack clearly outweighs his previous score. Arnold has returned to his love of electronic music while adding in global fare and original ideas beyond what he's used in the past. This score is must-have for fans of Casino Royale and die-hard Bond fans alike. John Barry would be proud!

About David Arnold

David Arnold is a film and television composer most recognized for his work in the James Bond franchise, with directors Roland Emmerich and John Singleton, and on the Sherlock TV series. Also a producer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist, he's crossed over to the pop/rock realm to work with artist such as Damien Rice and Garbage.

Born in Luton, England, Arnold grew up with an interest in music and participated in school music ensembles and later played in bands, both through college. He learned composing and scoring largely on his own by volunteering to score student films at the National Film and Television School. After earning credit for several film shorts and documentaries, college flatmate and frequent collaborator Danny Cannon asked his friend to score his 1993 feature The Young Americans. In the process, Arnold co-wrote "Play Dead" with Björk, resulting in a British Top Ten hit for the film.

With a copy of his breakthrough soundtrack in hand, Arnold visited Los Angeles and secured an assignment to score Roland Emmerich's 1994 sci-fi adventure film Stargate. His dynamic score, which integrated Middle Eastern folk music and limited electronics into symphonic adventure fare, led to work on the subsequent Emmerich films Independence Day (1996) and Godzilla (1998).

In the meantime, Arnold was welcomed into the James Bond franchise for 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies, starring Pierce Brosnan. It included the song "Surrender," which was produced and co-written by Arnold and performed by k.d. lang. He was invited back to score the Bond films The World Is Not Enough (1999), Die Another Day (2002), Daniel Craig's debut Casino Royale (2006), and Quantum of Solace (2008). Among several other film and TV projects during the 2000s, Arnold also became a regular collaborator with director John Singleton, composing music for his Shaft (2000), Baby Boy (2001), 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003), and Four Brothers (2005).

Highlights of Arnold's screen work in the 2010s included The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, released in 2010, the Simon Pegg-Nick Frost feature Paul from 2011, and the popular BBC series Sherlock, which he co-composed with Michael Price. The show received individual season soundtracks by the Silva Screen label. ~ Marcy Donelson
