When I went to the cinema to finally see the movie, I was completely BLOWN AWAY by the opening sequence. The colourful 'card/poker-references' actually made the sequence exciting! Thought most of the excitement was mostly thanks to the music. Along came Chris Cornell... This song just blows you away. After seeing the movie, I just had to buy the record.
Since buying it about two weeks ago, I've practically had it on repeat non-stop. I seriously cannot get enough of this song. It puts such a vivid picture of the movie in your head... Completely brilliant. If you love Bond and/or Chris Cornell, you will have probably bought this already. If not, then buy it now! You won't regret it.
I love the film and now the song, they go well together.
Never the less, this song stands up on it's own. It ranks alongside some of his best works - Loud Love, Black Hole Sun, Burden in my Hand, Gasoline, Dandelion, Follow My Way - and proves just how complete and superior a musician he is.
In terms of the film, both the lyrics and melodies complement the rebooting of the Bond character so expertly achieved by Daniel Craig, hinting at the story ahead, the character and his background.
I don't buy singles but i'm buying this one.
Avoiding such dire attempts at modern, funky and synth tunes from the Pierce Brosnan era with songs from Garbage and Madonna to name a few, Chris Cornell gives us a raw edge, much like Daniel Craig's portrayal of 007 in the new movie Casino Royale, which this is the title song.
The lyrics stick with you over a memorable chorus (unlike the Brosnan ones) which is something not heard since the Roger Moore tunes of the 1980s. The orchestral score is rousing and pure Bond, if you know your stuff anyway, and David Arnold lends a hand to keep it modern and pulse-pounding, again, much like this newer take in Casino Royale for Bond.
All in all, a great start for Daniel Craig and a rocking debut for him to take over the box-office with. Buy this song, and add it to your favourites with the previous Bond themes.

Chris Cornell has come up with a gem of a theme song for the last in the James Bond series. The song is everything but dull and cheesy (unlike many of the other James Bond songs -... Read morePublished on 13 Jun. 2008 by Tiz

This song grew on me fast. It fits very well with the grittier, more modern Bond. Best theme song since A View to a Kill, for certain. Read morePublished on 12 Dec. 2006 by Sharkman
