Personally I am slightly nonplussed. It's fine but the lack of a melody or catchy riff leaves me a bit underwhelmed.
At least it's not a disaster. And maybe it will grow on me. For me it's a but like TWOTW. Actually a pretty decent song but perhaps just lacking that little something extra to make it super special.
You can really hear the Zimmer contributions and this is clearly going to be woven into the score. A shame there isn't something a bit more distinctive about it.
On balance I am satisfied and I am more interested in the score itself ultimately.
I took it as another poetic way of asking, “are you heaven or hell?”
Exactly. The lyrics are strong IMO.
She is a talented writer no doubt. It does feel like the song fits Craig Bond's journey.
I think colouring my opinion is the cumulative effect of WOW's disappointment and now NTTD's very similar tone and lyrical preoccupations. It's not the kind of Bond song I'd put on regularly. I've listened to it twice but probably won't listen to again before the film. Curious to see how Zimmer incorporates it into the score and that's the most exciting part for me. Especially after three films of no significant entwinement between title theme and score.
And here's hoping the popularity of Eilish will help get the kids in the cinema.
Like WOTW, there´s a nice song somewhere hidden in there, but the execution is nothing but horrible. Sounds like Sheryl Crow perfoming while sleeping.
I know the feeling.
No worries @boldfinger Zimmer shall save the day. ;)
You and many others were hoping for something akin to a New Order remix? Well, I’m afraid you’ve only got yourself to blame there.
Too slow, meandering, whispery and depressing at the beginning, but thankfully it builds up to something close to Bondian at the end.
What I would give for another upbeat Bond song again though, like YKMN, TLD, AVTAK or LALD.
No, I´m not worried. Worry would mean doubt, and I have no doubt I won´t care much for the music of this film, no matter how good the film may be otherwise.
Now just hitting 3 million.
3:23 is the best part of the song for me.
Real strings. =D>
Ah, now that does sound good. Very promising.
I’m sorry to hear man :( hope you’re doing okay.
Also timing wise the Bond sound at the very end feels like an after thought AND is a few seconds too late for the last lyrics.
Here’s hoping the movie version is meatier and has a bit more punch.
Having said that I do prefer it over the last song but was expecting something mould breaking from her.
The lyrics are the strongest part but agin they have sections that a far to close to Smiths “a million shards of glass, haunt me from my past”.
I’m fearing another selection of faces/flash backs to Craig’s films in the opening title sequence.

Thanks I really appreciate that.
Funny thing is she has the same name and passport of a certain russian Agent from 1977, and now there's the first Bond film ever with him dealing with a break up. Living the James Bond Lifestyle to the fullest. :)
Kleinman better do something special with the titles, think Billies theme will come across well in the film!

Agreed @jetsetwilly. This song is perfect for a funeral but is a total downer for an opening Bond title. Looks like Eon have gone for the double whammy: two dirgey Bond songs in a row. Another Bond song I won't be adding to my perfect Bond Song Play List. I-)
This song is designed to follow and embrace Bond and Swann fallout in Matera.
I must be honest: I almost cried too.
Because I got some really bad news from a friend of mine. I won't get into details, but what she did can only be done because of a broken heart.
