Re: Skyfall soundtrack

I love the tracks "Mother" and "Skyfall" on the Skyfall soundtrack. I love the rather esoteric mood in those. That's something I can't imagine coming from Arnold, he would have scored it totally differently.


And yeah, it's kinda telling that for one of the key moments, the revelation of the DB5, they used a track from David Arnold's score from Casino Royale.

Same thing happened in GoldenEye in the tank chase. Eric Serra's score sucked for that scene, so they used a track from one of the earlier John Barry scores.

Re: Skyfall soundtrack

But it isn't like Arnold composed something new, it was just another of his versions of the classic Bond theme. Maybe it was always planned to use it there (just one of many homages) or maybe Newman's score for that part was rubbish? Who knows...

It's Arnold's arrangement but not an actual track lifted from CR - it's on newman's soundtrack album so it was recorded for this movie.

no, that replacement bit was composed by John Altman, the orchestrator

Re: Skyfall soundtrack

Just watched the movie again this past weekend with friends who hadn't seen it yet. They both agreed that they liked the movie very much but it was so different from past Bond movies. The consensus was that it was more of a "thriller" than a Bond action movie.

I felt that the soundtrack matched that movie style... it was more moody and electronic/orchestrated mix. There are several tracks where there is looping that builds and builds which are kind of catchy and several parts where added percussion sets it apart.

I quite like it, though not as much as Casino Royale.

Re: Skyfall soundtrack

I'd love it if the next Bond film contained this theme:

It appeared in From Russia With Love, Diamonds Are Forever and Moonraker. This just screams James Bond to me.

That cue was used in some fashion in every Bond film through LALD.

And it's my personal favorite as well.

Ah yes, the legendary "007" theme. Not to be confused with the "James Bond Theme". 007 has been used in 5 Bond movies.

From Russia With Love
Thunderball
You Only Live Twice
Diamonds Are Forever
and
Moonraker.

I do home it returns one day but EoN will have to get the rights from the late John Barry's estate before it will be used again.
