my god my god my god .... how old is this guy? hes gotta be somthing like 80 or somthing, he must realised that this isn't the 60's its the year 2002, and the way he trashed the world is not enough's soundtrack is disgusting.

i myself am a die hard bond fan, possibly evem more so of the music (i dont know if its obsessive but i hear atleast 3 bond themes or melodys a day) i am even planning to make my own "extended" remix of everyone of the songs into 1 continueouse song for possible 30 minutes.... it might seem like rubbish but hey.... im a dedicated bond fan

now i havent seen the movie, or herd any of the themes myself, so i cannot judge yet, but be sure, i will post my own review of it. but for now i have these to say... i agrree oakenfolds remix is completley dead. the first few seconds are great. however the rest of the song is a recycled "david arnold on plystation sounding" song. its like, the moby theme but very very simplified. i havent herd the good quality version (only the one on the warner brothers website) but i know that song isnt terrific, but i still like it in the sence that its modern

secondly madonnas theme (i have all the remixes of them) sure it doesnt sound very bondy, but on its own, its a great song. i especially LOVE the "cutting" of it. its very technoy and very upbeat. but most my friends reckon it still sounds "gay just like every single other bond theme. it needs somthing new, like techno" believe me... people want new modern stuff. not "60's classical"

now finally, if this one sounds anything like the world is not enoug... i will be drooling. i have many favorite moments from that one. starting with bank music, very classical sounding. then the "show me the money" which starts extreammly classic (but modern sounding) and morphs into an extreamly caotic bond theme... just brillian! ive never herd classical morph into techno so well. and the last minute or two... well if you didnt like the end music for the boat chase. your just not a fan of bond music
then the "welcom to baku" (hopfully welcome to cuba will sound much the same but extended... come to think about it. its the same beat used just before the car chase from tomorrow never dies) thencaviar factory! very slow and tediouse at the start. but extreamly rewarding at the end with the full orchestra bond theme WITH techno... it works soo well and finally the end credits music!!! oh my god! you wouldnt beleive how long i have waited for a MODERN version of the bond theme to play during the credits and as arnold said on the dvd "when you finish watching a james bond movie, theres only one thing you wanna hear and thats james bond music" and how right he was! i loved it. it converted it specially from the dvd to cd so i can hear it continuously....

ok this is going far too long. i know. when my new website is up, ill go into great detail so if you wanna read more go there (theres lots of bond stuf going there)

anyway my last words are... modern music, for a modern bond, for a modern era! hey, bond is a "modern techno" secret agaent after all.... i am sooooooooo looking forward to it... stay tuned for MY! review
