Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

Shame. David Arnold, more than any other composer, truly captured the essence of John Barry's classic style. All the others seemed to feel the need to abandon the tradition in favor the style of music "popular" for the times. (And Monty Norman barely had a score for Dr. No!)

Barry was timeless. And Arnold retained that quality, for the most part: the brass, the stings, the style.
"The saying implies but does not name the effective agency of its supposed utopia.... 'Needs and abilities' are, of course, subjective. So the operative statement may be reduced to 'the State shall take, the State shall give'."
