Comments about the soundtrack for Die Another Day (David Arnold)

Edit | Delete
The song: from a techno standpoint...

I listen to and enjoy both genre's that David Arnold seems to be trying to bridge. I've got many an Orbital CD, crystal method, and the like... as well as all of David Arnolds biggies (including that promo CD where he and Nicholas Dodd re-orchestrated some bond songs with some popular artists). Regarding the song: as an electronic music fan, It sucks. Listening to it all the way through i get to the part where she says 'Sigmund Freud Analyse this Analyse this Analyse this'... thats pretty dumb. It isn't even good techno. If i bought an orbital CD and this song was on it, I'd try to scratch it off the album with a small eyeglass screwdriver. It is bad relative to its own genre.

Which clearly means It is one of the worst James Bond songs ever. First of all, you can't make a song James Bond-ish just by adding orchestra samples. Second, not having the project's composer write the song is a bad idea. (Live and Let die and Goldeneye are good songs and aren't written by the composer, but Paul McCartney and U2 are more Bondish than Madonna...)
