Barry is back after a much needed break to musically acquaint himself with Moore's Bond. With a 'loud' title tune from British pop singer Lulu, the Bond Master provides some exotic location music to aid 007's actions. A favourite track is Let's Go Get 'Em used during the car chase with use of a simple whistle for the daring car jump. Nice use of the title song at the end with the singer starting in ballad mode before turning up the volume.

The Man .... is an improvement on Barry's previous DAF, an enjoyable Bond soundtrack with Eastern Promise.
