    Bland and Forgettable

    I have to say, I was terribly disappointed by Thomas Newman's "SPECTRE" score. The "Day of the Dead" festival music is terrific, but otherwise I found this CD to be monotonous and, frankly, boring - the one thing that James Bond should never be. One track bleeds into the next, until eventually the droning comes to an end. It's fine for a Bond soundtrack to not be in the John Barry mold; George Harrison's "Live and Let Die" and Marvin Hamlisch's "The Spy Who Loved Me" are both terrific examples of other ways to do Bond. Eric Serra's "GoldenEye" is often cited as a Bond soundtrack outside the Barry vain that didn't work, but I actually dig it. But this "SPECTRE" score by Newman? It lacks presence or personality. The one curiosity is the instrumental version of Sam Smith's "Writing's on the Wall". I also bought the CD single of that song, which includes the instrumental version. The difference is that on Smith's CD single, I can easily hear his vocals on the title line; they're entirely absent from the version included on this soundtrack CD. Why the difference, I can't even guess, but I do appreciate the offering here.

    Everything from the movie is here except the gun barrel opening where James Bond walks out in a suit, The title song is missing and the James Bond theme played at the end is missing too. I would have given this 5 stars if they had included these missing items.

    This review is essentially a heads-up to those who listen to the SPECTRE score while driving. If you get a speeding ticket, don't come cryin' to me; you were warned right here.

    Soaring 007 score. From action to romantic interludes, this ia a must for the 007 collector!

    With the exception of Sam Smith's song, this score is a worthy addition to the storied franchise. The album thankfully only has an instrumental version...

    A very good Thomas Newman addition to the Bond score canon. Although my favs are Barry or Arnold, Newman's score does not disappoint.
