The World is not Enough (Soundtrack Review)
on 12 January 2006
Arnold has produced a very good second Bond film score. The question has often been asked, 'Is Arnold simply John Barry repackaged'? To a certain extent this is true because the sound is undoubtedly Bond-esque, through use of traditional orchestral material, sweeping strings and use of jazz. However, David Arnold has produced this score in his own unique style. He has put his own individual stamp on the music and has proved that he is the Bond composer of the future. More so than 'Tomorrow Never Dies', Arnold imaginatively mixes live orchestral sounds with electronics and has produced some very powerful and exciting music. With this album however he has experimented more with audio properties of the soundtrack, using phaser pluggins and metalizers. The overall effect is very good. A thoroughly enjoyable listening experience, and it has inspired much of my own personal compositional output. Well done, Mr Arnold. Another first class album.
