5.0 out of 5 stars All the Bond you'll ever need
This is well worth 10. This is a very nice edition with every song you could ever possibly want in regards to James Bond. It has all the individual theme songs as well as a lot of backing music (that you might not realise you know). A very very good listen, but when you're driving to work with it blaring out you wish you might wish you had rockets, ejectable seats and an...

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty lame release given it's the 50th Anniversary...
So, there's a new Bond film due out, and we have another Best of Bond collection to "celebrate" 50 years of Bond, although you'd hardly know it. Disc 1 is much as you'd expect - all the main title themes, with Goldeneye and LTK appearing in their single versions and a different version of Casino Royale to that on the original single.

On to Disc 2. With it...

CD Info.
2xCD.
50 Tracks.

Synopsis.
This double album is released to celebrate 50 year's of James Bond, Disc 1 contains 23 main title track's from Dr No-Quantum Of Solace while disc 2 is a a mixture of additional songs from the Bond movies plus some amazing scores by various Bond composers.

Timelord Thoughts.
This is a excellent double album that contains all the main title Bond songs up until 2008 Quantum Of Solace, Featuring artists such as Paul McCartney & Wings, Duran Duran, Tina Turner, Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, Carly Simon, Madonna & many more as each artist deliver a iconic theme song to there interpretation of a Bond movie.

This album features additional songs by Moby, Louis Armstrong, K.D Lang, The Pretenders & an arrangement of instrumental scores from composer's John Barry, Monty Norman, David Arnold adding a great mixture of vocal & instrumental iconic cues celebrating 50 years of Britain's greatest secret Agent James Bond 007.

Sadly Adele's Skyfall isn't included on this release which is a little disappointing as it's the latest Bond song yet this is still a wonderful collaboration & a excellent purchase for Bond fan's.

Timelord Rating.
10/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of Bond.........James Bond, 8 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This 22 track music album is brilliant. It has all the Bond songs on it from Dr No to Quantum of Solace. It would have been really perfect if the song for Skyfall had been on it too but it is'nt. I love playing it on my phone when I go for walks or exercising. I'm really in the mood for Bond songs at the minute and have just been to see Skyfall at the cinema. An excellent album. Well worth the money !

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty lame release given it's the 50th Anniversary..., 17 Oct 2012

This review is from: Best Of Bond - James Bond (Audio CD)
So, there's a new Bond film due out, and we have another Best of Bond collection to "celebrate" 50 years of Bond, although you'd hardly know it. Disc 1 is much as you'd expect - all the main title themes, with Goldeneye and LTK appearing in their single versions and a different version of Casino Royale to that on the original single.

On to Disc 2. With it being the 50th Anniversary, there would have been no better opportunity to include some of the wealth of Bond music that has never been released before on any format, let alone CD. Sadly, there is nothing new here. Disc 2 is just a bizarre, random collection of widely available tracks taken from the soundtrack albums, some of which can hardly be called the "Best Of Bond".

This is a strange collection, clearly put together as a last-minute rush-job with no thought or effort - the Bond fans who don't want the soundtrack albums aren't going to be bothered by the incidental music on Disc 2, those that do have the soundtrack albums have these tracks already, so who exactly is this collection aimed at?

The 1992 30th Anniversary Collection was a great example of what they can do when they put some thought into it - a brilliant 2CD set containg all the songs (up to LTK), and previously unreleased demo recordings and Thunderball music on Disc 2, so it is possible. It's just a shame they obviously couldn't be bothered for this release.

Love it! Great CD. Second CD has a great very little heard track (1I believe). Buy it if you are a Bond fan & even if you are not!

The songs are great for James Bond movie fans. We love the 1st CD very much (sing along during road trips!), the 2nd a bit less.
