    I really like the Gunbarrel cue from Zimmer. The guitar is really front and centre before the brass kicks in. I must say that the ending is really eerie and makes me wonder whether the pretitle sequence will relate to Safin and Madeleine's connected past.

    Not surprising. In a lot of ways I'm even more anxious to hear the soundtrack than I am of the actual film.

    You can hear a bit in the new clip from the Fallon show; to be honest I didn't think there was enough to get excited or annoyed about, but there's a kind of vaguely Wonder Woman-ish repeated horn in there and enough of a big brassy sound to sound like it'll do what it needs to.

    I must admit I was hoping for a big bond theme blast when he jumped off the bridge, but if the scene is meant to be tension filled with Bond, wondering what the hell is going on, escaping by the skin of his teeth and a bit of ingenuity, then that also makes sense, that the music is the way it is.

    Perhaps not. But the notes that play right before Bond jumps off the bridge sound just like the intro to Moby's song "Extreme Ways." Ewwwwww.

    I saw you mention that in the other thread and had a listen back to the clip to see. It's quite a stretch to say that they're just like each other. They sound completely different in pitch, for one thing. It sounds like Zimmer actually used a siren sound effect in his track here, whereas the Moby track has actual strings (albeit sampled!).

    Could just be my ears though. Hard to make an actual judgment on the audio from a compressed YouTube clip....

    I’m definitely not getting Extreme Ways ways vibes either.

    Do you know if the orchestral version of No Time to Die by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be in the film ?

    I wouldn't have thought so, seems a separate project.

    Despite the April 2021 release of NTTD, it appears that the soundtrack is still on track for Nov. 13th (according to Amazon.com as of 10/9).

    I wouldn't pin too many hopes on that remaining unchanged though.

    I'm pretty sure another used mentioned that the date was postponed to April 2021 few days ago.

    EDIT: Yes, they did:

    I apologize for my earlier post not being clearer. I fully expect the soundtrack to be delayed. I was, however, observing that the release date on several online sites still doesn’t reflect this.

    On October 8th I received an e-mail from Amazon.com (US) about the “No Time to Die” soundtrack CD, and saw that their listing still indicated a November 13th release date. As pointed out, I fully expect this to be changed on Amazon’s system in due course. [Note: the Amazon.com (UK) website does, indeed, indicate a revised April 21, 2021 release date.] A similar issue happened to the upcoming Taschen James Bond Archives (NTTD edition), where its’ revised listing shows up as “unavailable” (You think that book may have a spoiler or two 😊?).

    Interestingly, Barnes and Noble (US) and Amazon.com (US) still has the “Making of..” book as being available on November 24th.

    Again, I think that it is just a matter of time before a correction is entered, but this issue does underscore (IMO) either venders being caught by surprise by the delay announcement, and/or a lack of coordination.

    Paul Duncan confirmed that the Taschen James Bond Archives will be out the day after the film.

    Which is quite a clever way of not giving an actual date! :D

    Heh. 'James Bond's opening'.

    But seriously: I think that's rather reading too much into a little bit of arrangement. And surely it's the triangle and bongos rather than 'tambourine and drum beat'?

    Makes me sad though: I hadn't realised it was missing triangle until now. I think all gunbarrels need triangle. Bongos are an added bonus.

    Just one cowbell when he fires the gun. And then silence.

    I, for one, hate all the studio logo musical piggybacking on the James Bond theme. MGM and Universal, or Sony, are horning in on the gunbarrel sequence.

    Give me a simple, silent United Artists Presents fading to black and then the gunbarrel any day, instead.

    Speaking of the gunbarrel track I much prefer the main guitar theme established in FRWL than NTTD's Dr. No inspired version.

    I thought it was a great addition, builds up the anticipation. Which it quickly threw away by playing the fanfare over black before the dots appeared, and my inner fan was screaming 'stop getting Bond wrong!' :)

    I actually really loved the touch of blaring the fanfare before the black dots. I found it emphasized the music and excitement as that's all I was focused on, since there was nothing on screen.

    Fair enough, that's cool.

    Apologies if this has been posted before, I hadn't seen it yet, but here's the official instrumental of NTTD. I wonder how much of this orchestration has made it's way into the score or if the instrumental itself plays during the film at all. I can see 2:40 onwards playing over a final ending montange sequence like the Nolan batman films to end the Craig era... goosebumps...
