A little on the short side for my taste, but this has always been a favourite James Bond soundtrack ever since hearing 'BOND 77' at the pre-title sequence of the film and also at the climax. One hell of a tune, filled with exciting bursts and pulse-pounding synth beats along with the chilling twangy guitar of the 007 theme. This tune is worth the CD alone.
The other tunes range from the sombre and beautiful, letting you totally become one with the aquatic feel of the movie which is a brilliant touch. 'Ride To Atlantis' and 'Anya' are a couple. They're totally in tune with the 70s era and the Roger Moore tongue-in-cheek portrayal of James Bond.
'The Pyramids' and 'The Mojave Club' capture the frolics and culture of Egypt with totally wicked instrumentals and beats, like nothing heard in a Bond movie before.
'Conclusion' is heard when 007 battles two of Anya's agents in Egypt and is one of the most memorable pieces of music used to tie in with the Pyramids and exotic location. It's short and sweet, but by goodness the final notes are EPIC and true Bond at this best!
Coupled with the gorgeous 'Nobody Does It Better' theme tune as the benchmark for James Bond, this soundtrack does really prove that nobody does it better than James Bond, and The Spy Who Loved Me.
