BOND IS BACK!!!
Ok, so I know the movie isn't out yet, but I still am a huge Bond fan and a really big fan of David Arnolds work. I admit, that I've liked every score of Arnolds, "Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day", and that he never disappoints and trust me when I say, this is one of his best. Compared to the last 3 scores that he wrote, this is by far the most original. Yes, you really don't hear too much of the James Bond theme. But that's the whole point of this movie. We are seeing 007 become 007. The best way someone put it is...Craig has to earn the James Bond theme, which I hear he really does. Of course my favorite track is "The name is Bond...James Bond," but the other ones will sound distinctly like previous Bond scores, but most of them are more original. The best ones are "African Rundown, Blunt Instrument, Aston Montenegro, The End of an Aston Martin and Death of Vesper"...hell the whole thins is good. I just wish the Chris Cornell song "you know my name", but if you are a big James Bond fan, then you really need to get this. I hope my review helps.
Come on you guys!!!!!
For all of those people that wanted, "You Know MY Name", How about trying to browse the song name? It comes up with Chris Cornell From Casino Royale. You guys should be smarter then this!!!!!
No opening title song?!?
I was about to purchase this album when I noticed that the Chris Cornell song, "You Know My Name" isn't even on the album. Come on Sony, it opens the movie! At any rate I didn't purchase this album, so thank you Sony BMG you saved me $11.99.
