Hmm   Saturday, September 1, 2007 (1:29 p.m.) 

Even though it is a new bond - a new era - a new time (eighties) - and a more technical world - same composer as always (when he doesn't take a break for one film) with a new sound and style

even if you look into all these thing before you review the score i have to say that this score fail in many way

i like it - it's good but i feel that they don't have the charm like the old ones have - they were good and bombastic - and barry did let the orchestra go nuts

where do you find instrumentation where the music play a "007" riff and build a hold new theme onto it - THUNDERBALL

or where do you find a cue that is simple - and would have a silly underline - but still tops the high in listening experience because it is 007 to have those silly music cue and barry really puts a lot of energy into the performance - "a drop in the ocean" - dawn raid on fort knox

or the high short-motif - heard in STALKING - when bond hits the oponent for the first time in CHATEAU FLIGHT

Even the bond theme could had have some extra melodic lines as heard in the GONDOLA CHASE from Moonraker.

So even though it is barry's last bond to date - and it is a good one i actually prefer to listen to the old ones instead

anyone agree ?

Nope, not at all. Along with On Her Majesty's Secret Service, The Living Daylights is my favorite of John Barry's Bond scores. I love his use of synthesizers and drum machines, yet the score still retains the class and quality of the Barry's prior work.
