I also love the Donna Lucia track, truly amazing and Newman has really proven himself with these two tracks alone. Can't wait for next Friday to hear the rest of the tracks
But as everyone has pointed out it's Grand Bazaar. I have listened to the track a few times this evening and its a good action piece. I think the inclusion of Grand Bazaar is Newman incorporating an action cue from his previous Bond score. There was the Bond theme (Monty Norman) the 007 theme (John Barry) and this is Newman adding his own to the mix. Can't wait to hear more.
For instance, it reminds me very much of this track:
@jake24 Let's hope so
The Thames boat chase borrows heavily from the motorcycle chase in TND.
I'm not bothered by Newman's use ...Will just bring back memories of SF for the audience.
Edit, I've just listened to Both and neither of them sound alike. Maybe they follow the same structure but aside from the use of the Bond theme they sound nothing alike.
@jake24 Let's hope so
Where? On the soundtrack?? Lol
Jk.. I like the song and glad he did. I like both Arnold and Newman even though Newman is generic as h%'ll. And Arnold is fanboyish and too electronic.
EDIT: it's just Backfire again.
Backfire: A generic and relatively dull listen until perhaps the final 30 seconds, and even that is right out of "Grand Bazaar." (Though I do like the synthesized sounding "BAH-BAH" at the three minute mark even if it is fleeting.) Sounds like a whole lot of other action cues with its relentless notes and constant percussion (a trend I am very tired of). I'm sure it'll work just fine in the film, though.
Donna Lucia: Similar to "Severine," which is decent. Gets the job done, I suppose and will also likely work in the film. Nothing to get too excited about.
If Spectre's score is anything like Skyfall's the soundtrack will be a bore on its own, but will work fine within the film.
And if it is like Skyfall's, I think we need a new composer for the next film.
