David Arnold's Bond Music

I think Arnold compositions for the last 3 Bonds sort of represent the direction the series is going right now. With the new film being so over the top, a more techno approach was appropriate. While I don't particularly care for Madonna's title track (I hated it), I have to say, reluctantly, that it sort of works with titles. But being a Bond historian, the films tend to cycle in terms of wildness and I see a return to the more traditional spy film looming on the Bond horizon, ala For Your Eyes Only or OHMSS. Subsequently, a more traditional musical approach would be more effective. I love how Arnold handles his Bond duties, though I do think that his work with the traditional Barry-esque material should not be steamrolled with his increasingly techno approach. Tomorrow Never Dies is his best work, and I would like to see hime return more to that style for the next film.
