It's Bond. What else did you expect?,
By A Customer
This review is from: The World is Not Enough (Audio CD)
Anyone who says that this soundtrack doesnt do the Bond series justice needs their head examining. In true David Arnold style, this score steps just beyond neo-classical and into the realm of drum'n'bass - whilst keeping one foot frimly in tradition and espionage with tracks such as 'Casino' and 'Elektra's theme'. And what is all this about lack of Barry's original theme? Those who cite that argument have clearly not listened to the stunning 'Come in 007, your time is up'. From it's scintillatingly explosive opening fanfare, through it's steady and exciting beat, and right up into the triumphant, proud and hair-raising flourish of Barry's original electric guitar Bond riff, this track shows how Bond is going to go into the 21st century - very much shaken and stirred! As well as this stonking soundtrack, Garbage's rousing theme does the film justice, with it's sweeping and dramatic chorus that one cannot stop humming for days. You don't have to buy it, of course; but it's your loss if you don't.
