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

Excellent - not as good as You Know My Name or the very best of the classic era (Goldfinger, Thunderball, etc) but damn good. The lyrics are logical given the context of the title and what Skyfall is - though also a bit too literal in the first half, given what just happened to lead us into the titles! I like it.

The other clip is fun too - and reassures me a bit about Newman's music (though it's not the *first* time we've heard his contribution - look back to the previous page where I posted a link to a 30-second loop of some mood music from the film...)

Best performed Bond theme in years. But lyrics suck, and it is a bit of a dirge. But I imagine it'll grow on me.

^ Lyrics can't be any worse than the one Bond theme, think it was Tomorrow Never Dies, which opens with a line like "Darling, I'm in a puddle on the floor"...

^ Yeah, I dare any performer to come up with Bond lyrics worse than that.

I really like that. I've never listened to Adele, but I'm considering it now. It's certainly much better than Another Way to Die. It surprised me how much I disliked that song, since I'm usually a fan of Jack White's work.

I kinda liked Another Way to Die, I thought it fit with the film, a raw/unfinished song for a raw/unfinished film.

I found it boring. It's kind of shapeless except when it references the Bond theme. No real melody line. I ended up shutting it off about 2/3rds of the way in.

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

Did anyone else hear echoes of Casino Royale at around the 1:00 mark? This isn't a complaint - I like the continuity, albeit minor.

In fact the only negative I have is that there isn't enough swell and power at the chorus - both due to Adele and the orchestral arrangement itself, I think.

Yeah, tbh not that big a fan of most Bond lyrics - esp latter ones. I guess I had higher expectations for this though probably shouldn't have.

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

Even though I said I would have preferred Muse over Adele, I have to say I really like this song. It has a very classic James Bond feel to it, both the music and the lyrics. Even Adele's voice invokes that era. The only thing I didn't like so much was the choir bit towards the end but it might grow on me.

I like the song, though it could have used some more trumpets and stuff to make it sound more Big Band, like the classics (and the two 90s songs David Arnold was involved with).

Bit of a preview of Newman's score. I'm liking what I hear so far. I cannot wait to get the full soundtrack.

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

Those first couple of minutes were just dire. They screamed "out-dated" to me, the middle was bland and although the last few were acceptable they certainly weren't outstanding.

BRING BACK DAVID ARNOLD!


(thanks for posting it though )

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

I'm not listening to any of these till the movie comes out. Often I find that if I listen to the theme song or tracks released early for Bond films, I don't like them until I hear them along with the visuals of the film. I'm willing to wait 3 weeks for the release of Skyfall to listen and make my judgment then.
