5.0 out of 5 stars David Arnold Does It Again! November 18, 2002
By Tom
Format:Audio CD
When Arnold was hired to score 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies, after the abysmal euro-pop score from Eric Serra for GoldenEye, he created a new Bond sound that harkened back to the glory days of John Barry, whilst updating the sound and giving it his own trademark. For Tomorrow Never Dies he created an orchestra heavy score that featured only brief moments of techo, almost solely in the collaboration with the Propellerheads in "Backseat Driver", used in the BMW chase.
Arnold was called back to score the 19th Bond, "The World Is Not Enough". Once again he employed a full "Bond" orchestra, and used a number of more unusual oriental instruments to connect the score to the relevant spot on the world culturally. For The World Is Not Enough, Arnold began to experiment more with electronic techno and advanced spatial mixing. If you have the TWINE album, "Come In 007, You're Time Is Up" and "Submarine" are very good examples of this.
With "Die Another Day", Arnold updates this sound increasingly, and has created a very contempary, if slightly controversial Bond score. The increased use of drum loops, techno and digital sample work very well here, and the Bond sound crashes into the 21st century with style.
The album is headed up by Madonna's single "Die Another Day". Think of this what you will, but it is undeniable that it brings the "Bond ballad" into the new millennium, and is a very catchy tune even as a non-Bond theme.
Second on the disc is Paul Oakenfold's new remix of the James Bond Theme. Oakenfold, who recently scored Sworfish (starring Halle Berry) with composer Christopher Young gives the Bond theme a welcome new "zing". Unlike Moby's 1997 rendition, this tune keeps the Bond theme in its entirety, and is a far more groovy tune, fantastically mixed by Oakenfold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musically definitely a new Bond! November 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Finally here it is! First of all, if you didn't like TWINE, then you'll probably hate this one. It's much more electronical than previous Bond scores and also contains techno rythms. It's also one of the few Bond scores that has a very dramatic chorus, which works brilliantly with all the action tracks.
The score definitely DOES contain the James Bond Theme. And not only that: when I listened to this for the first time, I instantly recognized tributes to From Russia With Love, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, Moonraker, Tomorrow Never Dies and The World Is Not Enough. Some people may say that it's just a rip- off, but it's definitely not! It's so brilliantly mixed that you barely notice! The best track and probably one of the best chase music ever written without a doubt is Hovercraft Chase. Fast music combined with an excellent interpretation of the James Bond Theme.
The gunbarrel music goes back to the Barry- style gunbarrel mixed with a drum loop. Also, the score contains much more cues of the Bond theme than what's labelled on the cover.
A weak point of this soundtrack is that there's no real theme on it, there are only cues. With Madonna's title song obviously unsuitable for adapting into a score, composer David Arnold had to try something different and it works out brilliant at the end.
Now that I finally have this excellent score, I really wish MGM had dropped some of the nice, but useless bonus material in favour of more music. This album gives us only about 40 out of 100 minutes pure score.
Nevertheless, this soundtrack is absolutely brilliant!

4.0 out of 5 stars With this CD, you'll need to BUY Another Day November 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This review is for about the CD content rather than David Arnold's score. The score definitely moves more electronic than TWINE, but it still sounds great and Track 3, which features the gunbarrel music, blew me away on the first listening. You'll want to play many tracks loud. As of this writing, I have not seen the film, but the music stands up on its own. Well done, Mr. Arnold.
The CD itself, alas, is lacking. Oh, its fine if you're a Madonna fan and buy a CD soundtrack for enhanced features that CD-Rom technology offers, but isn't the soundtrack supposed to be just that? The CD itself is an even 55 minutes. David Arnold wrote 100 minutes of score for the film, of which 45 minutes are captured on this CD. The title song runs 4+ minutes and then the 4+ minute Paul Oakenfield remix. Sounds great, but to my knowledge is not in the film so why use the space. The CD-Rom extras are the space hogs here. Bond and soundtrack aficianados would have much preferred an 80 minute CD with 1 song and more score. I know I would have.
Anyone have a release date on Volume 2?

4.0 out of 5 stars Shaken not stirred... November 26, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Die Another Day does show that David Arnold is more than apt to deliver good Bond scores, although, I was a bit disheartened of the predominately electronic sounds which seem to be overtaking the majority of action films. The new soundtrack is more of an electronic tribute to Bond composer John Barry, with subtle cues from previous films past & present. The fact that this is the 20th Bond film, in addition to the 40th anniversary, makes this not only neccesary, but obligatory. It's not completely original, but refreshing to hear snippets of "From Russia w/ Love" or "Tomorrow Never Dies" interlaced with a good drum loop. The album packs punch, but does have a very Shaken...not Stirred approach. At times, tracks like Iced, Inc. are rivetting, but almost a conundrum of electric pops and whizzes. Overall, not Arnold's best work, but worth checking out to Bond fans out there. My only valid complaint, is the inclusion of Paul Oakenfold's Bond theme remix. I felt this was a sort of ham-fisted approach to spice the soundtrack up, but only falls short. Particularly, when everyone with AcidPro and a mixing board are doing the same thing. Personally, I was more impressed with Moby's Bond remix from "Tomorrow Never Dies." Or, if you're truly loyal, try to track down Parodi Fair's Goldeneye Bond theme remix from the 1995 movie trailer (you'll probably have to scour the internet). Thanks to David Arnold, and to "the man" John Barry for their great interpretations.
