Are you deaf?(Zephros)
Well, it's obvious you like your scores full of cliches and good luck to ya! I am not interested in 'cover versions' of past John Barry Bond scores. For one thing, it shows little imagination. Goldeneye's score was something very fresh and unusual; something that brought Bond screaming out of the 70s. Arnold's scores are tired; bored; boring; backward looking and you end up counting how many times you hear other composers styles in his writing. Arnold is a hack. Serra is an original. Barry is an original. Williams is an orginal etc. You obviously feel comforted by familarity, as I do in regards to Barry's music outside Bond. Barry reinvented the wheel in the early films. Serra did it for Goldeneye, at the request of the Bond producers.
