    Had I not read the article, I would have probably had the same reaction. Personally I'm not even sure how a William's score echoing Barry would even work, to tell you the truth.

    Neither am I, to be honest. Williams and Barry have always come up with vastly different tunes. So a Williams Bond score... yeah, what might that even sound like? ;-) I'd love to hear one, that's for sure. Williams remains the greatest film composer of all time, IMO.

    Probably something akin to his Indiana Jones scores, I'd imagine. Perhaps the more actiony cues from Minority Report and War of the Worlds might give us some idea of his action cues without the Bond theme. It would be something that would sound more Williams than Barry, of that I feel certain, with the Bond theme woven into things but perhaps sparingly so. Would Williams also collaborate on the title song?

    Let's see if he could do a Bond song, I mean yes, let's not waste the opportunity while he's still alive.
    Why not give him a try?

    I think as good as John Williams is, Henry Mancini & Jerry Goldsmith were the American composers that would have done wonders with Bond music.

    Goldsmith might've aced it in the '60s Love his scores for the Derek Flint films!

    Exactly. Goldsmith was having fun with those scores. The track below is one of my favourites and could easily serve as an alternate Bond theme.

    As well as all his work on "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", which included the main theme.

    Just finished watching the White Lotus. Cristobal Tapia de Veer's soundtrack sought of reminds me of Barry at certain points.

    Speaking of The Man From UNCLE, Daniel Pemberton is a very talented and creative composer.

    I think that Mason Bates would be an out of the box choice. His symphonic work Mothership really reminds me of the 60s sound mixed with elements of new Bond scores. I also appreciate that his work can create visions and conjure up a mood without knowing the context. His work Anthology of Fantastic Zoology is also incredible but very different from Mothership.

    Justin Hurwitz gets my approval now. I thought his First Man landing track that sounded very John Barry was maybe a fluky one off, but after seeing Babylon, I am now more convinced than ever.



    He manages to produce a variety of very different sounds, but in Babylon he now evokes Ennio Morricone too -

    I like Justin Hurwitz as well. I would be happy with either. I also would love to hear a John Williams Bond Score but sadly unless they have a script ready soon and send it to him to start feel this may not work out. I mentioned Bates as I think he is someone who deserves a shot and could do a great job and wouldn't be so focussed on making it fit with his "sound" something I think both Newman and Zimmer unfortunately brought to their scores.

    I would like Zimmer to return. I think even with the limited time he had, he did fine. So I can't help, but wonder what him and Marr would do for Bond 26 with ample time.

    Sounds like he would be up for it.

    Interesting that he comes from a jazz background, the same way John Barry did too.

    I could not find the title song artist suggestion discussion so thought I would put it here. I know many are looking for a harder, rock based theme what about Sam Fender. Has a Springsteen sound and can incorperate a more fully produced song than many rock artists who stick to a more rough and ready song production style.

    John Powell could do a good job I think.

    I watched Mr and Mrs Smith again the other night and I'd love a Bond score like that. It has pulsating rhythm but it shines in the quieter moments

    Powell also scored all the Bourne films, we know EON have a habit of looking at the Bourne films for "inspiration"

    The Super Mario Bros Movie soundtrack is getting quite a bit of listening time at the minute, I am a big fan of how Brian Tyler has integrated the existing Mario themes into the score, along with new themes, and still produces a very coherent, melodic and orchestral soundtrack.

    So I wouldn't be adverse to him doing the soundtrack, and he has done many other big blockbuster scores, mainly the Fast & Furious soundtracks, some MCU films, Expendables etc.

    I think Benjamin Wallfisch would do wonders with the music of Bond.
  • Tyler Bates he made the John Wick soundtrack along with Deadpool 2, 300 and a lot more actin movies. He also used to make music with Marilyn Manson.
