Re: Your Favourite Bond Soundtracks?

My favourite Soundtrack would have to be Tomorrow Never Dies, it's so fantastic! But in close second would be The Living Daylights, and in third, probably [EDIT] On Her Majesty's Secret Service. I'm not a big fan of Goldeneye's score, but if you listen to this part right here, it's amazing: http://youtu.be/j_us6n5mnq8?t=4m46s

One of my favourite pieces of Bond music ever.

Re: Your Favourite Bond Soundtracks?

Oh, something to add. I think that if David Arnold ever retired, Michael Giacchino would make a great composer. He is currently doing the new Star Trek movie's soundtrack, so you may be a little bit iffy, but just listen to this soundtrack from my favourite game of all time, Medal of Honor: Frontline. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq3eRXmboC4

A cool part about the game is that you're actually pretty much James Bond in World War 2. You're an OSS Agent sent to infiltrate Nazi plans, and such. The level where that song is taken from, Manor House Rally, is a very Bond-like sequence, where you sneak into a Nazi Party at a big Manor, in disguise, and then, when you're found out, you pretty much fight your way through the house with a silenced pistol. I remember playing it when I was about 6, and still think it's the best game.

Re: Your Favourite Bond Soundtracks?

I think the scores to all the Bond films are really good. However the scores that stick out to me the most(in no order) are:
The Living Daylights
Skyfall
Casino Royale
Goldfinger
You Only Live Twice
Quantum of Solcace
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Licence To Kill
Live and Let Die
The Spy Who Loved Me

Re: Your Favourite Bond Soundtracks?

I have recently come to the conclusion that Thunderball is my favourite score. A shock as it's far from my favourite film, or even title song. But the score is just magnificent. It feels so intense and atmospheric ajb007/martini

And... I don't care what anyone says, but I also love the Goldeneye score.

1 - Moore, 2 - Dalton, 3 - Craig, 4 - Connery, 5 - Brosnan, 6 - Lazenby

Re: Your Favourite Bond Soundtracks?

100% agree re the TB  score, glad to see that you too appreciate its epic quality.
GE is at or near the bottom of my list, though the slower pieces aren't bad.

9 songs done, 2 in various stages of disarray for next album!

Indeed, TB's score is pure epicness!

Regarding GE, it's not my favourite of anything, but I do admire it for being different more than anything really.

I'm going to attempt the impossible, and try to rank order all the scores.... will post again once I've figured out my list!

Re: Your Favourite Bond Soundtracks?

My order of the scores. This was really hard. I love 1-11, and like 12-17.... 18 onwards gets dodgy for me though:

1 – TB – Intense, atmospheric, memorable, epic, full of character
2 – OHMSS – It really has to rank high. So much to like
3 – AVTAK – Not only do I love the film, but the score is also amazing. “He’s dangerous” just rules
4 – DAF – Gotta love Wint and Kidd’s theme. The score is great and feels unsettling in a brilliantly effective way
5 – LALD – Always adored this. Full of character. My favourite non-barry score
6 – TLD – Great stuff from barry
7 – GF – Mainly for that awesome Miami tune. Also, love the fort knox raid music
8 – GE – Underrated, different, full of character, atmospheric, nostalgic
9 – FRWL – Love the slower eerie-sounding SPECTRE bits. Great score
10 – YOLT – Just because it’s 10th doesn’t mean I don’t love it. I do. A great all-rounder
11 – MR – Again I love the score. There are so many great scores in this series of films
12 – OP – Used to be higher. Kinda got tired of it, but it’s still a very decent score. I see it as similar to AVTAK’s, but just not as good
13 – LTK – Nothing wrong with this one, and refreshing really
14 – TMWTGG – Hit and miss. It’s ok overall. Has some great tunes, like "Hip’s Trip"
15 – SF – Not great. But I did like some tunes rather a lot. The shanghai music particularly. And the bond/eve shaving scene
16 – TSWLM – The themesong is AMAZING. But the score... nah. Some good bits though
17 – FYEO – Fair enough that people hate it. It is very different. It’s an acquired taste. I myself like it, but compared to most of the others...
18 – QOS – Honestly, from TND onwards they just never did it for me. But I do remember liking a few things about this one
19 – DAD – I can’t remember much about it. But I do remember more than TND, TWINE and CR
20 – DN – It wasn’t the best. But at least I remember it

These last three just never did it for me, and I can hardly remember them:
21 - CR - As I somewhat like the Vesper death music
22 - TWINE - Just not my cup of tea. Almost tied with TND, but if I had to pick, then TWINE is a tiny bit better
23 – TND - Again, just not my cup of tea

Re: Your Favourite Bond Soundtracks?

TND is my cuppa, IMHO Arnold's best Bond score- "Backseat Driver" is great to drive to!

I'll check out that track now... Maybe I'm just not a fan of Arnold. But maybe I'll grow accustomed one day

Excellent choices! Those are all at the top for me, though LALD I like better on its own rather than as a Bond soundtrack.

ajb007/martini Absolutely. I love 'Bond on Kobe Docks' and Barry's instrumentation of 'We have all the time in the world.' What are your fave tracks, BL?
Been listening to the FRWL soundtrack, lots of hidden gems there such as '007 takes the lektor' and 'Bond and Tania'.
Oh and I love FYEO soundtrack a lot. (A drive in the country is so good, i swear i find myself humming that atleast a dozen times a day). I understand that the soundtracm is not everyone's cup of tea, but i like it cause its so different

Re: Your Favourite Bond Soundtracks?

In order of film release, the best scores for me are YOLT, LALD, TSWLM, FYEO, AVTAK, LTK, TND, and DAD.

Honourable mentions - because they have a few awesome tracks - OHMSS and SF.

Weakest for me are Spectre, only because it's a lot of the same from Skyfall, and NSNA - which I think is dreadful.

I'd have to say my favorites are the title tracks for OHMSS and YOLT, but I quite enjoy "Bond on Kobe Docks" as well. I am also very fond of "Journey to Blofeld's Hideaway" and "Countdown for Blofeld".
