3.0 out of 5 stars Still no John Barry, 27 Feb. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The World is Not Enough (Audio CD)
David Arnold's excellent score to "Tomorrow Never Dies" proved he indeed does have the talent to succeed John Barry in the proper John Barry style of James Bond scoring. However, predictably, he falls short by not using the Barry/Bond formula on this one. While "The World Is Not Enough" is a fine song and a Bondish one at that-- especially with the wise decision to use Don Black's lyrics-- the rest of the score is mostly just noise. Barry was noted for MELODIES. Sorry, Arnold, loud noises are just NOT enough. (and weak singers don't help either) He would do well to go back to following Barry's style in scoring these films. Innovate, yes (Barry was at his best at innovative orchestrations). But remember the BONDISH melodies. Make it suspenseful, haunting, exciting... Otherwise the music of John Barry will continue to be sorely missed.
