what do you think
The first rule of writing a Bond theme: It must sound like a Bond theme. This is accomplished here by giving it exactly the same chord progression as the last Chris Cornell tune, which in turn lifted it from any of the other incidental music Bond films have used over the years.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Where's the theme?
i like it because it is quite bluesy.
I hoped for something a little more spectacular.
but I'm assuming this is Jack and Alicia, yes?
I like it. It's a good pairing even if Alicia Keys presence seems to be pandering to the mainstream. It's the best Bond theme to date and I really liked the old Nancy Sinatra/Shirley Bassey/Tom Jones stuff. (Heck, I kinda liked Duran Duran and Garbage, too.)
(Anything after Chris Cornell is gonna be good by comparison. One day soon all the grunge kids will realize how shitty Soundgarden really were. Don't even get me started on AudioShite.)
