Overall, a good soundtrack, with nice references back to Casino Royale. But, where on earth is the end credits music? It's missing. Shame on Sony, as this was great.

This is a really crackingly good James Bond score. On his fifth outing as composer, David Arnold has created a work that is both listenable and catchy.

I'll admit right away, I am firmly in the camp that has cringed through Arnold's work on three out of the five previous, John-Barryless films. Arnold's love of sequenced layers of percussive turmoil drowned out any semblance of melody and the James Bond theme was plastered on with a trowel at various moments when other ideas had obviously run out.

Thankfully, all this seems to be changing now. Casino Royale began a return to proper Bond form and Quantum of Solace has taken it still further. Even the wierd, faux Live and Let Die title song is properly referenced and included throughout, albeit as a variation.

It's really nice to see David Arnold getting more melody into the dramatic passages of his Bond scores. Not that it was totally absent before, but he did have a tendency not to stick with any one idea long enough for it to remain memorable. This may be slightly true of some portions of the action music in Quantum of Solace but it has to be said, this work stands head and shoulders above his previous efforts.

Bond is starting to sound like Bond once more.

Footnote: If I were David Arnold, given Eon Productions' erratic hiring tendencies, I'd now be worried for my job. Main title designer, Danny Kleinman did some of his best work on Casino Royale and was rewarded by getting dumped from this outing.

David Arnold's latest Bond soundtrack has the same qualities as the four he's done before. He's a master of action sequence music, and there are pieces of exhilarating full-on drama.

David Arnold brings some of the international flavours such as Bolivia and Haiti into the blend- there are even some panpipes at one point, but don't let that put you off- while retaining that distinctly Bond flavour. New themes for this film blend in with the recognisable Bond melodies and it's all extremely slick.

The theme song "Another Way To Die" by Jack White with Alicia Keys is not the strongest Bond theme tune, by a long way, but it is a bit of a grower and it's good that it's included (unlike on the previous soundtrack).

It would've been nice to have included a proper Monty Norman-style "James Bond Theme" on here for completeness (that famous "DADA! derrr... DADA! derrrr... DA-DA DA-DA DA!" bit is missing) but otherwise it's a brilliant soundtrack album.

There are some great Barryish moments but like the film these are few and far between. TIME TO GET OUT has a nice blending of the Bond theme....

After scoring 5 Bond films in a row the redoubtable David Arnold seems to be running out of ideas for "Quantum of solace" Now Arnold is a talented composer and he has harnessed the spirit of John Barry quite admirably on all his Bond scores to date but one can feel fatigue setting in here. The title track (which Arnold didn't have much to do with) by Jack white and Alica Keys goes down as the worst Bond song ever ! Truly awful, what a bizarre pairing for a Bond song and it sounds limp,dull and boring. Arnold definitely should have been involved with the title song as both his Bond songs for "The world is not enough" performed by Garbage and the song which featured at the end of "Tomorrow never dies" Surrender by KD Lang were both excellent.

The score itself is ok, serviceable and does have one or two flourishes here and there but by the time you get to the end you'll be itching to dig out that old "OHMSS" or "Living Daylights" score by John Barry.

Maybe David Arnold needs a break to recharge his batteries. I like Arnolds work but this is his worst Bond score yet.
