The new For Your Eyes Only remastered CD is without a doubt one of the best.
Devin Zydel
Bond fans will want to get this one; it's a worthwhile addition to any soundtrack buff's collection.

Yet, Conti seems to have composed a very upbeat and versatile `Bond' sound of his own.

Bill Conti's score for the James Bond film FOR YOUR EYES ONLY is innovative, vibrant, uplifting and quite controversial. Though the controversy is not quite as great since Eric Serra scored GOLDENEYE, Conti's score remains somewhat counter to what a conventional "Bond" score should sound like. For years we only had Bill Conti's `disco' portions of the score when the soundtrack was only available on LP or cassette. When it was finally issued on Compact Disc additional elements of Conti's score were included. These selections are good and demonstrate Conti's versatility and innovator as a film composer. This soundtrack demonstrates Conti's originality as the music relies on very little inspiration from the `James Bond Theme' or John Barry's prior influences. Yet, Conti seems to have composed a very upbeat and versatile `Bond' sound of his own. Conti's "Gunbarrel" opening included on this CD is powerful and announced that this film was indeed a return to a tougher James Bond. Cont's music for the film's numerous underwater scenes is very effective as are his compositions for Bond's penetration of the villain's mountaintop lair in "Run Them Down / The Climb" making this an impressive James Bond soundtrack.

The new For Your Eyes Only remastered CD is without a doubt one of the best. The music sounds much more crisp than on the original CD's. For Your Eyes Only by Sheena Easton is a great James Bond theme that is a favorite by all. A Drive in The Country, Melina's Revenge and Runaway are blasted with a magnificent disco-funk theme that really adds to the music. Rage performs the MOTOWN feeling Make It Last All Night which is a welcome addition to the CD. Bill Conti fills the rest of the score with exciting synthesizers, horns and an outrageous symphony for the rest of the tracks. A perfect mix between disco-funk and quiet mysterious music, this CD delivers it all. Very generous with 19 tracks and 58 minutes of music, For Your Eyes Only is one everybody should have in their collection.

For whatever reason Bill Conti was given the task, of producing the score for "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY" it was a commendable one. In that it gave Mr Conti the coveted opportunity to revive the somewhat lame and waneing sound of mediocre James Bond scores being produced - at that point in time anyway or more specifically the 1970's (excluding "The Spy Who Loved Me" score from that observation), if one is to be honest with one's self. A breath of fresh air was badly needed and by golly, a breath of fresh air was given - and then some.
Quite frankly, this beautiful Bill Conti score in my humble
opinion has more bite than a piranha with a bout of hunger pains.
Bill Conti definitely left his mark on this film indelibly, with his distinctive fusion of Pop/Funk and orchestra. A fresh, modernistic and creative approach that was so sorely needed.
His score hits all the right notes with all the designated scenes that he was requested to compose music for. Superb use of strings, brass, guitars, percussion and everything else!
The Main Title Theme Song is a superb composition and rightly so was nominated for an Academy Award - beautifully sung by the gorgeous Sheena Easton.
This new Digitally remastered with 7 added bonus tracks album is exquisite for a number of reasons, one of them being that it finally completes more or less a work that was left incomplete for 22 years! This updated "FOR YOUR EYES ONLY" soundtrack not only sounds great (in every sense of the word), looks great, but it arguably is GREAT!
I just honestly wish some individual who had a say in the development of this remastered and updated album could have in their wisdom included a 5 or 10 minute interview with Bill Conti himself about the composing of this soundtrack - but alas it was not to be.

As great as this album is, it is still missing quite a few good cues. The missing music totals about 12:40. Here are the missing cues:

"Not Deep Enough"/Moscow (0:15)
Film version of Lotus Driving music (Gonzalez takes a dive) (0:54)
Unreleased Ice skating music (2:00)
Film version of Motorcycle Attack music (first part of Ski..Shoot...Jump) (1:02)
Sleigh Ride and Hotel Room Cue (1:28)
Death of Ferare and Intro to Greece (0:42)
Greek Shopping Music (Source Music) and Stone Balcony Music with Melina (1:42)
Casino and Restaurant Music (3:55)
Warehouse in Albania Music (0:55)
Followed (underwater cue)
Greek Celebratory Music (Source Music) (in the the wrong St. Cyril's) (0:49)
Scaling the Cliff (Bond theme) (0:21)

The album track "St. Cyril's Monastery" could be completed by incorporating the "Bond theme" music and the track "The Climb" within it.
