Die Another Day is another installment of Arnold's excellence in the Bond genre. The combination of electronic and orchestral elements produces a truly thrilling effect and makes all those great old John Barry motifs and bass lines fresh and exciting again. The Bond theme gets plenty of times to run free and spice up the action, and the choral and cuban elements of the score are icing on the cake.
The slow romantic parts of the score are the best Arnold has ever composed, with soaring strings and intricate melodies perfectly scoring the traditional bond-girl character: beautiful, interesting, and delightfully unpredictable.
If you like John Barry or David Arnold or good Bond music period, you'll like this score.
It is indeed unfortunate that the extra CD-ROM content had to be so obnoxious, but if you can see past that (and the crappy Madonna song), then you'll be looking a great film score.
