I think this score has been unfairly judged. Its a bit shorter than TWINE. I don't believe the best parts are on the disc. Think about the ski scene in TWINE. It was beautifully scored yet it was not on the cd. The early scenes between Bond and Electra were quite good as well. It have to see the film to judge the score for Die Another Day. The song didn't work becaus eit doesn't fit with the score. No matter how good or bad the song, is it is a bad Bond song if it don't fit. I think Madonna could have worked if she didn't have so much ego and worked with Arnold. I think you guys need to quite complaining about the techno route Bond is going toward. Techno is the next evolution in fom music. It may not be in its current form but it will take a place with film music one way or another and it is here to stay. I think most film composers know this. John Williams even used some techno ideas in his latests scores.
