Different, but good none the less!

If you're looking for the classic James Bond theme, you won't find much of it here except in the last track, which has a great orchastral version of the classic Bond theme. This fits in with the movie, where this is not yet the smooth, refined Bond we see in other films. Still, the score is great, with a style that is unique, but still you can tell quickly that this is a "Bond" film. The title song, "You Know My Name" (by Chris Cornell) is surpizingly absent, but that's my only true complaint.

Where is Chris Cornell's "You Know My Name"? It's strangely absent from both releases of this album and isn't avalible as a single either. If you type it in however in the search field iTunes seems to know it belongs to Chris Cornell and Casino Royale. So whats the deal? More albums would have been sold I'd think with its inclusion.

You have to see it

Lacking the title song and straight performance pieces this is not the most listenable James Bond album, but it's absolutely brilliant on screen. Like the clever script and Daniel Craig's layered performance, David Arnold pays subtle musical tribute to John Barry's classic scores to suggest how Bond's character is taking shape. To really appreciate this terrific score, you need to hear it in the film.
