Yeah, I think you're right.
Pity you couldn’t enjoy his scores.
Alas, I pitied myself too. Fortunately, I was able to enjoy his non-Bond scores.
Hans Zimmer and friends did not phone it in.
Quite possibly but I think it is that good. DA for me only consistently bought it with his QOS score, CR is sublime but those Austin Powers horns on the Miami scene are cringeworthy.
I don't hear this score doing anything like that and Zimmer isn't blatantly him here. Shades of DA, TN and of course the master as well.
It depends if people don't like the nostalgic indulgences but Zimmer has bought and at times, fun, thrilling, sinister emotional score, the full package and hearing someone do sinister the best since Barry is just a joy.
I got vibes of Bond Smells A Rat from MR near to the end. It's playful at times but you can tell this film is heading towards something of an emotional wallop if you follow the vibe of the score.
If the music is anything to go by, Craig is going to end the tradition of bowing out on a poor or troublesome entry.
One of the best aspects of a new Bond film, for me, is listening to the score; hearing that the NTTD music uses interpolations of past - John Barry, David Arnold, and even Thomas Newman - with the usual Zimmer flourishes is making me so overjoyed
Ditto. I just find that knowing the music beforehand influences negatively the enjoyment of the film, as our unconscious knows the build up already and won't be surprised by things. So, let's stay strong, my friend. It's all almost here, finally ;) Hearing these guys reviews just makes me so happy :)
Absolutely. It's hard to hold out (especially since it's official release is well before the film's release date here in North America), but I don't want my first viewing of this film to be swayed or influenced at all by anticipation of the music.
We don't know what the future holds. And if things change massively and this is the last "classic" Bond film we get -- at least, the way we've known them -- I want to preserve that experience to enjoy it one last time.
Well said. My feelings exactly!
Soundtrack is 70 minutes long, the movie is 163 minutes long.
Yes. Same ending note i believe.
The overall score is excellent, they really did it. Definitely my favorite of the Craig era. We’re in for something special with this film, something that will probably stand as the most emotional, tense and unique Bond film ever.
Edit: received the link from some kind members, thanks!
Yep, I'm among those who were a bit worried about Zimmer as I was afraid we'd get a generic score with lots of generic string progressions but I must say he did make a wonderful job. Also, no "bwaaams" anywhere in the score and that's great as I can't stand them.
Absolutely! Also 'i'll be right back' is where I feel Cary asked Hans to go FULL Zimmer! Lovely stuff.
The soundtracks always forgets themes (sometimes the best) so it will be longer, and we know that songs from other artists are going to be used (like "Dans la ville endormie" of Dalida).
Edit: score received!
