I've not seen it either; but the score is amazing.

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

I've just heard the full version of the song. It's quite good, running about four minutes, it'll probably be edited a bit to fit the titles. Which are normally about 3 minutes long.

Song found here. Not sure how long that link will stay active, but since the song's premiering in a few hours anyways, if you miss it there, you'll be able to hear it anyways.

Heard the sample HERE. Apparently, the full theme's going to be released officially on Friday.

Really psyched for it--it truly invokes the classic themes of the Connery era, but with a "modern" vibe. Rather like the better Pierce Brosnan themes.

Is it just me, or is she kind of invoking...Amy Winehouse?
Even though I actually liked Die Another Day and the one for Casino Royale, I still think my favorite Bond Film from the Brosnan era to now is Goldeneye. That had that classic bond feel too, and while I've mentioned this current Adele one sounds "Goldfinger-ish", I can see some of that modern Goldeneye flare in there too.

Thanks Aldo. I'm loving this song. It's like 3 for the price of one. Adele is releasing something new, it's the new Bond theme, and it's going back to the classics, with the Bond theme intermixed in there.

^They removed it--and the YouTube vids of the full song are high-pitched and make her sound like a bad Madonna impression.

Song-wise, my favorite from the Brosnan era is "The World Is Not Enough" by Garbage. I definitely got that vibe from Adele's song.

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

That was fast. No worries, it's being officially released at midnight England time anyways. 0:07 actually.

That time has come and gone, so here it is, in HD glory:

I just listened to it. I think it's alright, not amazing. I'm sure it'll grow on me.

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

I don't think it's as good as some of the classic Bond Themes such as 'Goldfinger' and 'Live and Let Die'. But I think it's an improvement over the previous one.

But I think there echos of some previous bond themes in terms of the style of the music. It'll be interesting to see what sort of title sequence they come up with for it.

First clip from the film shows up online:



There's no real spoilers in the clip, though I put it in the spoiler tag anyways in case people don't want to see the image of the clip. It just shows a bit more of a scene that features in all the trailers. Also it's the first time you can hear a bit of Newman's score.

^Nice to see the context for the cuff adjustment!



As to the full song--excellent. Simply excellent. It's obvious the filmmakers learned from their mistake of dumping "No Good About Goodbye" from QoS.

Adele does the Shirley Bassey archetype justice, my friends. Here's to an opening credit sequence to match--classic retro Bond, with silhouettes of beautiful Bond girls, with the occasional gun....


Still...I'd say an improvement would've been--drop the background singers. Bassey didn't need'em--neither does Adele.

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

Now I'm not a music critic, but I know what I like and with Skyfall, there are bits of it I do like, the Bond fan fair, although a tad slow, is good. I just feel it's just trying too damn hard and I don't like it.

Yes it's reminiscent of the older Bond themes, being the fiftieth anniversary and all, that makes sense. But. It's trying to recapture the greatness of songs like Goldfinger (which to be honest, is the pinnacle of them all), You Only Live Twice (just for the intro really), the very eighties Diamonds are Forever and of course Goldeneye.

So yeah, first blush, not a fan of it. Maybe when I see the film in a couple of weeks I may enjoy it more, or if I give it a few listens as my Girlfriend just told me. Right now though, I didn't like it.

I know what you mean about the backing singers, but I think they'll grow on me

All in all I really like it, be interesting to see how it's cut for the title sequence, and what the title sequence looks like. I doubt we'll get anything as cool as the Casino Royale titles.

I was going to wait until I saw the movie to hear the theme, but I figured what the heck. I liked it, it's got a nice retro feel to it. I haven't heard much of Adele's work, but I like her voice.

I actually prefer Forever (I Am All Yours) by Eva Almer, but I think either one of the two would have been better than Another Way to Die.

Love the song, and when she sings the chores she reminds me of old Glasgow drunks who would sing for you at the bus stop. lol

And i mean that in a nice way.
