Comments about the soundtrack for Die Another Day (David Arnold)
Sorry to say it but I don't believe that Monty Norman wrote the James Bond Theme

Sorry to say it but I don't believe that Monty Norman wrote the James Bond Theme   Friday, November 15, 2002 (3:03 a.m.) 

I believe that it was John Barry who wrote it
There's only one track on the DR. NO CD that has this theme and that is track 1
If you are looking on another song called THE JAMES BOND THEME (track 17) then you'll see what theme music Monty Norman gave the James Bond character.
Beside, Monty Norman does neither use some variations on that theme - so too hell with the court - BARRY wrote JAMES BOND THEME for 250 in 1962
And Barry do also compose variations on that theme in his 11 bond films
All in one - Monty Norman's DR. NO score sucks - and are actually worse than Serra's GOLDENEYE
I do not hope that Arnold sinks deeper than this if the reviewer is right in what he writes

Re: Hey! Dont ever diss Goldeneye   Saturday, November 16, 2002 (5:28 a.m.) 

i loved goldeneyes sound track (i even got it at a cheak 5 bucks! lol but thats not the case. goldeneye although wasnt really bondy, it was really suited to the picture. it was old, dirty, moldy, russiany and generally "looked" or sounded like the movie goldeneye which had a dark, gloomy, dirty, moldy, russiany feel... please not goldeneye was one of my all time favorite bond films!

so please, dont trash goldeneye

Sorry, but I've got to agree - Goldeneye was the weakest bond score, with the possible exception of Die Another Day, although I haven't seen it with picture yet.

The one slightly redeeming feature of Serra's score, I thought, was the Timpani playing the bond theme near the beginning (the bass riff). Although most likely a synthesized timp, it sounded pretty novel.
