Format: Audio CD
This is an incredible CD of James Bond film music from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Carl Davis. These recordings rival those issued by others. All the John Barry compositions are excellently orchestrated and are true to John Barry's distinctive style and sound. GOLDFINGER is powerful and majestic while THUNDERBALL has a dramatic yet endearingly romanticized and nostalgic quality about it. These are beautiful recordings. THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS arranged for orchestra is a real powerhouse full of drive and momentum and delivers a real punch. Monty Norman's JAMES BOND THEME sounds similar to the orchestration used in MOONRAKER and is another powerhouse. FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE is beautifully performed and will have you yearning for those good old days when there was a certain mystique for foreign places and international intrigue. All considered this is one of the best collections of James Bond music I have heard outside of the original soundtracks.

Format: Audio CD
The earlier Sean Connery movies are better arranged on this disque than, say... The Living Daylights or Live And Let Die (oh, that horrible 'rock' guitar used along with orchestra!).
The best pieces of all on this disque are those that do try to differ from the original - From Russia With Love is brilliant and the dreadful original Lulu rendition of The Man With The Golden Gun is given new life, respectablity, and hope - but it still keeps the snazzy feel.
However, some tracks, such as Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, and Diamonds Are Forever - whislt all great songs - do sound rather bland because they are so close to the originals and like every other 'remake' made before this disque.
Goldeneye, For Your Eyes Only, and Nobody Does It Better are fairly good. Goldfinger is great because it reminds me more of the soundtrack score used in the movie.
