Classy soundtrack underpins much underrated Bond movie,
By A Customer
This review is from: Moonraker (Audio CD)
The soundtrack to this bond epic is typical of the type of scores being composed by John Barry in the mid to late 1970s. Along with the Black Hole and Raise the Titanic his scores throughout this soundtrack are quite thought provoking. The film in its day was greatly overshadowed by Star Wars and the like , however, the music is great. Shirley Bassey gives her best performance in the main title and the 'Bond arrives in Rio' tune is much in keeping with Roger Moore's typically charming yet deadly portrayal of 007. If you like Bond buy it, if you like great driving music buy it!
