    Can you please stop it with your consistent criticisms of people's rankings and opinions? It's becoming tiresome...

    Stop spamming the tread because someone doesn't agree with your choices. It just makes you look like a troll.

  • Okay, took me some time to order them but here it goes.

    1. TMWTGG - John Barry
    2. LALD - George Martin
    3. AVTAK - John Barry
    4. FYEO - Bill Conti
    5. OP - John Barry
    6. TSWLM - Marvin Hamlisch
    7. MR - John Barry

    None of the scores are weak in my opinion and none of them are perfect either. They all have redeeming qualities. Having listened to these again, I would have really liked to hear more Bond scores by George Martin and Bill Conti. John Barry is THE sound of Bond but I would have been curious.

    The ones I like best are LALD, TMWTGG, and TSWLM. Don't remember the others that well...

    LALD
    MR
    TSWLM
    TMWTGG
    AVTAK
    FYEO
    OP

    Think it's a shame Moore didn't get a consistent composer for his tenure. It would have been interesting if George Martin had been kept on as Roger's scorer, leaving Barry as Connery's.

    No no no, I wouldn't want to miss out on any of those Barry scores! :-O MR, AVTAK, OP and even TMWTGG are great Barry scores. Leave Martin home as long as we can get Barry.

    I certainly wouldn't want to imagine a world with less John Barry scores. Martin did an excellent job with LALD though so I think it would have been interesting to see what he could have done with TSWLM.

    Barry should have done LALD, TSWLM and FYEO. I do appreciate those scores being somewhat unique in the series. But you can t beat Barry when it comes to scoring Bond.

    While I don't like the score for TSWLM, I have to give big props to Marvin Hamlisch for actually paying homage to Barry during the scene where Bond and Anya are searching for Jaws, Hamlisch plays a cover of "Stalking" from, From Russia With Love.

    1. TSWLM (happened to hear it 4 hours ago on the radio while picking up my medicine in the pharmacy. Coincidence? Not likely.)
    2. LALD (Paul McCartney says it all)
    3. OP (very romantic)
    4. AVTAK (went to number 1 in the charts)
    5. MR (I've always wanted to go to Rio)
    6. TMWTGG (Barry didn't like it;but, I did)
    7. FYEO (not a big fan).

    Hey, guess what? I added up the average so far ,and it goes like this:

    Top three:
    1AVTAK
    2MR
    3LALD
    These are far more popular than the rest, and it is very close between MR and AVTAK.

    The rest:
    4FYEO
    5OP
    6TSWLM
    7TMWTGG
    Very close between FYEO and OP as well. Surprised to see FYEO at 4. I love the film, but the score is a weak point imo.
