Another update of 2002 release this time pre-QOS. This time we lose the previous album's final 2 tracks of James Bond Themes and gain DAD, CR's Cornell theme finally on a Bond CD, TND's Surrender is brought back with lang getting a mention on the add on label describing this album as THE NEW BEST OF BOND. Strange addition is another James Bond Theme cover by John Arnold ( is this composer David's dad or brother ? ) which starts with an upbeat guitar rift of the famous tune but is spoiled when the organist joins in which makes it sound like a poor cover for a video game. At least this album runs in the right movie order but not all 007 titles are mentioned on the rear list.

As before if a newcomer to the world of Bond music this is an excellent introduction. Despite having all the tracks bar the mentioned final two it's still a must for your collection. So listen and enjoy !
