If you want to make a 2-disc complete CD package, then try this. I think it works both musically and theatrically, as it splits the album just after Bond's arrival in Montenegro, before the card game begins, and before the 1st appearance of Vesper's theme (which opens the 2nd CD):

CD 1 - 42 mins approx

1. License: 2 Kills
2. "You Know My Name"
3. Reveal Le Chiffre
4. Mongood vs Snake
5. African Rundown
6. Bombers Away
7. Nothing Sinister
8. Push Them Overboard
9. Unauthorised Access
10. Blunt Instrument
11. CCTV
12. Solange
13. Bedside Computer
14. Trip Aces
15. Miami International
16. Beep Beep Beep Bang
17. I'm The Money
18. Aston Montenegro

CD 2 - 54 mins approx

1. Dinner Jackets
2. The Tell
3. Inhaler
4. Stairwell Fight
5. Vesper
6. Bond Loses It All
7. Brother From Langley
8. Dirty Martini
9. Bond Wind It All
10. The End of an Aston Martin
11. Prelude To A Beating
12. The Bad Die Young
13. Coming Round
14. I'm Yours
15. City of Lovers
16. The Switch
17. Fall of a House in Venice
18. Running To The Elevator
19. Death of Vesper
20. The Bitch Is Dead
21. The Name's Bond...James Bond
22. "You Know My Name" - pop mix (from the CD single)

I just saw the film again last night to check this, and it seems to be all correct. I personally think Arnold's score is nothing short of fantastic in the movie. I agree that on album it isn't as "friendly" as Tomorrow Never Dies, but I have a renewed admiration for Arnold after this effort. Electrifying action cues, some really effective underscore during the spying and card moments, and those beautiful string cues for the leading ladies.

Also, on a final note, the red satin dress that Solange wears in the early part of the film is worth the price of admission alone! Without a doubt the best dressed lady in any Bond film...
