The title song is pretty good.

This movie isn't generally considered one of the best in the series, but it's a favorite of mine and I think the music is wonderful.

John Barry has a talent rare to the world of the cinema. He creates great melodies. On top of that, he creates (or used to, when he was still willing to do so) great arrangements and orchestrations.
You Only Live Twice is, in my opinion, the very best theme song ever written for a film. It's hauntingly beautiful, creative, and captures the mood of the film's Japanese location. Even Nancy Sinatra is at her very best singing it.
The music includes the great "Capsule In Space" theme (also known as "Space March"), and the rest of the album is also good, but not as great as those two pieces.
Again, the major problem with this release is the great music that isn't in it...When will they ever learn? Hey - United Artists/MGM/whomever...wake up!! Time to release ALL of the complete Barry Bond scores (you can keep the rest).

John Barry pulls off another good James Bond soundtrack yet again. This soundtrack is good, and John Barry does a great job with the space capsule music. They are very exciting and riveting. Listen to the track 2 clip to sample the space music.
Some highlights are:
"Capsule In Space" which is an exciting and tense track, the tensions building and building until the end of the track.
"The Death Of Aki" which is a good track that displays the love and sadness in the relationship between Bond and Aki. Halfway through, the music becomes tense as the assassin tries to kill James Bond, and then ends with sadness as Aki is killed instead.
"Mountains And Sunsets" is definitely the number one song on the soundtrack. It is a beautiful instrumental version of the You Only Live Twice title song, and is played primarily by violins and harps. And finally the exciting "Bond Averts World War Three". It is exciting and tense as Bond fights Blofeld's henchman Hans, and then turns into sheer suspense as a faster version of Barry's "Capsule In Space" is played for the scene wheere Bond struggles to stop Blofeld's spaceship from destroying the American spaceship.
Tracks 3 and 5 are exciting tracks, and tracks 9 and 10 are tense and exciting as Bond infiltrates Blofeld's volcano base and Blofeld prepares to launch his spaceship.
Overall this soundtrack is good, despite the missing tracks which is a pattern among most of the James Bond movie soundtracks. If you are a James Bond music fan then you should definitely buy it, but if you are not you should listen to the clips first before buying it.

The 5th James Bond movie and one of the most memorable and soothing title songs ever! John Barry does magnificent work. Nancy Sinatra performs with undeniable charm and sensational class! Mountains and Sunsets is a loving piece as Countdown for Blofeld is intense and exciting. Capsule in Space is a haunting melody that really gets the attention of the viewer and Bond averts WWIII is another great tune. If one can complain about this great soundtrack, it would be that Little Nellie Attack was sadly not included. You Only Live Twice. A truly inspirational song for a inspirational soundtrack!

Critics seem to either love or hate John Barry's score for "You Only Live Twice. Part of the criticism has had to do with Nancy Sinatra and a rather subdued title song that did not seem to fit the James Bond mold. In fact, the song, with meaningful lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, has weathered quite well, and is actually counted as one of the best of the series, and Sinatra deserves some credit for that (it is also among the best songs that she has done). A different demo vocal was recorded and can be heard on the anniversary "Best of James Bond," but it only serves to underscore how good the actual title song is. The score is also worthy of note. The title theme is used with interesting variations throughout the score and Barry added another theme that has come to be one of his most popular, the "Space March," heard in several scenes but introduced in the pre-title sequence, "Capsule in Space." The soundtrack stands on its own as a very enjoyable recording and should be considered among the four best scores and recordings in the Bond series. There are missing tracks, as to be expected, some of which appear on Nic Raines' "Bond Back in Action" ("Bond's Funeral" and "Human Torpedo"). But even there the attempt to do tribute to Barry falls a touch short, since Raines' arrangement of the post-credits opening to the film is abbreviated, and that is a pity since the full "Funeral," "Human Torpedo" and Entry into Tokyo" music is so memorable. Barry's use of oriental idioms avoids serious cliches, and the action tracks, especially "Fight at Kobe Dock" and "A Drop in the Ocean," are inventive and good listening.Read more ›

This is John Barry's 5th outing as Bond composer. Slick 60's fare, with however a surprising lack of the much desired 'James Bond Theme.' Since the movie is based in Japan, Barry has again gone out of his way to use traditional Japanese instruments and to give the score a very Far Eastern feel. (As he did with Turkish sounds in FROM RUSIA WITH LOVE, in 1963.)
There are some particularly lovely melodies, especially 'The Wedding' and the swirling title tune (which appears several times).
Nancy Sinatra's unemotional treatment of the title song is a plus.
All in all, a good one for John Barry, which was to pave the way for his first masterpiece...'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' 2 years later.
