Good - but not great,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Best Of James Bond 50th Anniversary (2 CD) (Audio CD)
Not all the music is from the Iconic Box Office favorites......some of the music is not easily recognizeable as Bond Music at all.....
I think there are enough favorites to satisfy the nostalgia buff ....but they could have done a better job at assembling what to put on the album.....after all, this is supposed to be the 50 year anniversary, they should have dispensed with the traditional method of including a sample of producer's favorites, and unleashed a torrent of the customer's ear candy instead.....
finally, I have acquired a true understanding of the configuration known as 'digitally remastered' - some of these selections are in their original recorded format.....as a result, ( I have a pretty powerful sound system in my car) .....they played extremely tinny and dated....they did not satisfy my listening enjoyment due to the technology disparity....the music that I heard in my head from memory, while anticipating the arrival of the CD ....sounded much better than the final product.....in the future I am going to look for the 'digitally remastered' designation before buying another one these potpourri conglomerations......
