5.0 out of 5 stars Barry's last 007 soundtrack - sob! 20 Sep 2000
Format:Audio CD
This, John Barry's third Bond soundtrack of the 1980's is the most orchestral of the trio. In keeping with the last film (A View To A Kill), Barry used the services of a popular chart-topping band for the title song. For The Living Daylights, a-ha were asked to do the honours for the fifteenth Bond film. Although not as popular or as successful as Duran Duran, a-ha, with barry's help, did provide another high-charting hit, reaching number 5 in Great Britain.
For the first time since Bill Conti's For Your Eyes Only score, Barry used the services of not one, but two bands. Supplementary songs for this film were provided by The Pretenders ("If There Was A Man" and "Where Has Everybody Gone"). These neither got the publicity nor, thusly, the success of the title song, but they go down as Bond "standards", in tune with the time of the film's production.
The Rykodisc release of the soundtrack, the version I possess, contains not only the originally released themes, but also nine additional tracks. These include "Exercise At Gibraltar" (which starts with the James Bond Theme played over the "gunbarrel sequence") and "Air Bond" (covering Bond's control of the Hercules). Both are very good tunes, with the latter containing an action theme which would be replicated in other tracks of the soundtrack - a similar fashion to the soundtrack of A View To A Kill. Other "belting" orchestral themes include "Inflight Fight" and "Ice Chase", which incorporates the "James Bond Theme" - an everlasting link with past films.
Not only are there strong, louder themes, but there are also more slower, gentle pieces for the scenes which need it - Barry's forté.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shaking and stirring 7 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"The Living Daylights" is by far one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard. Bond veteran John Barry always manages to capture the essence of all the Bond movies he had scored and this is no exception. The use of orchestral and electronic instruments are an excellent and original combination and really make this soundtrack stand out from all of its predecessors. The title song is superb as are the "Ice Chase", and "Hercules Takes Off" tracks. Well worth buying for fans of Bond and great music alike.

With The Living Daylights, John Barry embraced the modern technologies available to him in the late 80s. With synthesisers and drum machines entering the mix, we can hear the fantastic 'Ice Chase', a superb reworking of the original 'James Bond Theme'. The theme music by a-ha is excellent, backed up by The Pretenders two tracks, 'Where has everybody gone' and 'If there was a man', the first time that a different end credits theme was used in a Bond film. But Barry has not forgotten his more traditional roots, with the orchestral 'The Sniper was a Woman' and 'Koskov's Escape' as well as his penchant for using local colour, as evidenced by 'Opium and Mujahadin'. For the action sequences, 'Necros Attacks' and 'Hercules Take-off' both deliver and Kara's love themes are tenderly played by the orchestra. Add all of this to the fact that you get 19 tracks on the OST and all I can say is buy it, buy it now. It is not just a Bond soundtrack, it stands comparison with the best of all film soundtracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking Soundtrack! 26 July 2000
Format:Audio CD
A totally groundbreaking soundtrack from John Barry. Barry's musical contribution to both the Bond films and several others (such as "Zulu" and "Dances with Wolves") has always been of the highest quality. His foresight helped to create this excellent soundtrack, the musical integrity and quality of which exceeds that of the more ostensibly modern Bond film scores, such as Eric Serra's for "Goldeneye". You have to listen to this recording!

5.0 out of 5 stars John Barry at his best 22 April 2009
By Rachel
Format:Audio CD
This is John Barry at his very best. He had done some great stuff for previous Bond films but somehow this one really does go so well with every aspect of the story. Certainly it's not just your average run of the mill adventure music but really well structured compositions. Also that gorgeous, haunting romantic theme, played on the flute,of the meetings of Bond and Cara. Lovely! I hear something new on this CD every time I listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring Back Barry!!! 11 Oct 2003
By Donald
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack to the Living Daylights marked the end of John Barry as the composer for the Bond films. TLD is his best score of them all, he manages to caputre all the excitement of the film and also the love between Bond and Kara.
Included on the CD is the amazing track from the Execise at Gibralter. This is just one of the many excellent piecies of music included. If you buy this, you will not be dissapointed!
