Enlisting an array of indie icons, from Iggy Pop to Chrissie Hynde (whose version of "Live And Let Die" is a definite highlight), Arnold attempts to update--if not exactly subvert--some of the more notable Bond theme tunes. Yet despite this noble attempt at deconstruction, what's remarkable here is how so many of the acts conform to expectations: Pulp, typically, make "All Time High" seem a furtive, even faintly grubby experience; while Aimee Mann performs "Nobody Does It Better" with a kind of weary sarcasm, either unable or unwilling to swallow the myth of male potency. On the other hand, Shara Nelson's reading of "Moonraker", and Martin Fry's "Thunderball," each manage to communicate at least a little of the magic of the original versions. And having at last found a piece worthy of him, David McAlmont loses no opportunity to make "Diamonds Are Forever" his own. --Andrew McGuire

Format: Audio CD
This is a magnificent CD, with surprise after surprise. Dave Arnold has assembled an astonishing number of hugely talented musical forces and obviously put them to work. A lot of work. This isn't just a work-a-day, rushed set of remixes, but completely recomposed music. None of the songs sounds like a 'tribute' but like (because it is) a new piece of music. No duds here.
Highlights: David McAlmont singing the pants off Shirley Bassey. He is simply magnificent. Also a very unusual arrangement of From Russia with Love, sung by Natacha Atlas. Whereas McAlmont clearly sets out to out-Shirley Shirley, Atlas recreates the song so that it sounds as if written specially for her. Pulp are seedy as hell: brilliant, and also doing full justice to their arranging skills.
All it's lacking is Mandalay singing For Your Eyes Only. Now that would be something... Or am I just greedy...?

Having taken over the mantle of composing the James Bond movie soundtracks for the 90s (and very good they are too), David Arnold revisits Bond theme songs in this project, working with a wide range of artists to produce a set of really interesting covers. And the whole CD is worth buying just for the astounding first track - David McAlmont is Miss Shirley Bassey as his falsetto vamps up 'Diamonds are Forever' in homage to the queen of Bond theme songs and gay icon. After that you feel rather let down by Aimee Mann's understated 'Nobody does it better' - although listened to separately, this track will grow on you. Chrissie Hynde rocks out in 'Live and let die', and the Propellerheads do their drum'n'bass thing brilliantly with 'On her Majesty's secret service'. However the other true highlight is the last track as Iggy Pop discovers he can croon melodically on 'We have all the love in the world' - Mighty fine.

You have possibly the most recognised global movie franchise here with guest artists putting down their own interpretation of easily recognisable title tracks under the expert hand of David Arnold. Just listen to 'Diamonds..' incredible!, or my personal favourite the understated and sublime 'All time high' by Pulp. 'Moonraker', and 'Thunderball' add to the selection and help you, the listener, to connect and feel the power of the music, and get an appreciation of classic theme tunes with a modern twist! If you like listening to movie based soundtracks then this a must, if you are new to this genre, you wont be disappointed, sit back and take it in, and experience....but if you can PLAY LOUD, there are classical Bond musical nuances and phrases within that only appear when the volume is top end, you have been warned.

This album passed me by when it was first released, but I was re-acquanted with it when one of the tracks came up on the auto playlist at the local radio station that I present on. I then had to get hold of the whole album. There are some real corkers on this. Aimee Mann's 'Spy Who Loved Me' is a real improvement on the Carly Simon original, and I now prefer Chrissie Hynde's 'Live and Let Die'. Propellerheads 'OHMSS' is too much fun. I could go on and on - I suggest that if you want a blast of classic Bond tracks with a different flavour, go for it!

This album is a must for any James Bond Music fan. This is a great re-work of some of the original music from the films that adds something new for the listener. Each track on the album is recognisable from the original with just that little something added. My personnel favourite is On Her Majesty's Secret Service by the Propellerheads, for me it is the perfect James Bond track. If you are a James Bond fan and you love the music as much then you can't go wrong here.

In the same year as Arnold produced the soundtrack to his first Bond film (Tomorrow Never Dies, 1997), he also released this collection of reworkings of Bond classics. Some work, some do not. This may be because I gave up on the music of the rock and pop world in the late 1980s (to me, the world had become innately conservative and had been transformed from a means of new expression to a mere moneymaking exercise), and so most of the contributors to this project are unknown to me.

Many of the songs do not stray too far from the originals, namely `Diamonds Are Forever' (now with an electronic beat and interesting vocals); `Nobody Does It Better' (with an AOR arrangement); `Live & Let Die' (with a welcome harder edge; better than the original); `Thunderball' (a playful opening and with more kick); and `We Have All the Time in the World', sung by a surprisingly sultry Iggy Pop. `Moonraker', though, is a more-than-weak replica, and one wonders what here is the point of the exercise.

Many of the re-arrangements do not add anything to the original songs. `Space March', for example, consists of five minutes of repetitious mumbling with little variation; the vocals to `All Time High' are ludicrously whispered; and the six-minute `James Bond Theme' is tedious beyond belief. One would never guess this was the James Bond theme and one would never care. Does Arnold know the meaning of the word `creative'?

But it's not all bad news. I like the new `From Russia with Love', that retains its relaxed 1960s feel with charm, and Arnold's nine-minute version of the theme to `On Her Majesty's Secret Service' is interesting too: he takes the theme, adds a heavy rhythm and then breaks it up into pieces, whilst incorporating along the way the `Capsule in Space' theme.
