The brilliantly conceived and masterfully produced Quantum Of Solace theme Another Way To Die that Jack White whipped up with Alicia Keys and the Memphis Horns stands proudly alongside James Bond movie themes past.
So hopes were high that the David Holmes score that fills the rest of this disc might live up to some of John Barry's classics. Not even close.
Although the whooshy programmed bits and bland orchestral cues might work well with the screen action, Holmes lacks Barry's knack for memorable melodies and catchy motifs. So as a stand-alone piece, this is mostly a yawner.
Do yourself a favour and just download the track Another Way To Die instead.
