Who is this reviewer? I've never before read such garbage. Serra' score, while unusual and different from Barry, was not bad at all. It was modern, funky, and did incorporate a modern version of the Bond theme throughout.

In my opinion, his work is far superior to the Barry-lite garbage that David Arnold, a hack if there ever was one, has been foisting on us for the better part of a decade. Barry was a genius, and Arnold was the real disgrace, serving up pathetic but unmemorable scores (particularly for The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day) not worthy of the Bond legend.

Thank god for Thomas Newman - he added some new, modern sonic flourishes for Skyfall that stood out. In fact, I think Newman's approach was in a way a modern interpretation of Bond music, something that was done brilliantly 17 years ago by Serra.
