Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Tribute: Fantastic new music 19 July 2001
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...?

5.0 out of 5 stars great album 23 Feb 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
this is a great album of popular Bond movie themes done with a David Arnold twist. He has gathered an amazing group of artists like Aimee Mann, Leftfield, Martin Fry & Chrissie Hynde. A real chill out experience

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Shaken and stirred 15 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great alternative music 8 Mar 2013
By Daniel
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is a must for any James Bond music fan. The music has a very alternative music flavour to these familiar title tracks, but is surreality tunes, and different singers make these very original in there own right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 9 Jan 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Excellent "modern" remakes of classic James Bond themes and songs. There are some truly excellent versions of the classic tracks you know by various "modern" artists arranged by David Arnold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant remixes of the classic Bond themes 5 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is an excellent remix of the classic bond themes. David Arnold has brought together some really well know arists such as Chrissie Hynde, Iggy Pop and Leftfield. The result is a stunning alternative to the original film theme tunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great James Bond album 5 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a brilliant album - I had this when it came out but lent it to a friend who never returned it. Having bought it again I'm reminded what fantastic reworkings these are of timeless and wonderfully melodic originals.
