This looks like a definitive presentation of this score (how couldn't it be, with Neil at the helm!), and I hope it means Neil will get to keep going and do TWINE and TND next!

La La Land calls it the Vanish.

I disagree.  Arnold saw Die Another Day exactly for what it was, a horribly over the top Bond pastiche. A dramatic approach like the predecessor TWINE would never have worked, so he went all out

One of my ultimate holy grails is a truly complete and properly assembled Tomorrow Never Dies by David Arnold.  I hope that one's possible.

 

The World is Not Enough by David Arnold would be nice too, since there was never a session leak or bootleg or iso score or anything for that one.

 

All the other Arnold/Bond ones are complete or very nearly complete. Yet for some reason those 3 MP3's from Arnold's site in the 00's are all the extra's we ever got from TWINE.

Well if you look at it another way, DAD is the only one that had a session leak/bootleg of any kind; All the extra material we have from everything else was released officially

 

TND : Isolated score & expanded  Chapter III CD

CR : ITunes bonus tracks

QOS : Wasn't there an extra cue released online somewhere?

The end credits piece was released on iTunes. The arrangement of the Bond theme from the end credits wasnt though. I assume that's sourced from the blu-ray, because it is out there. Otherwise only a short cue for the bar shootout is missing from Arnolds score.

It's actually a really nice interview.  The first half is kind of getting to know Neil talk mixed with general James Bond / James Bond music talk, and the second half is all about the new DAD album.  Its pretty cool how it all came together, from the political side of getting the rights, to the elements side to getting proper mixes to recreate from those elements.

 

Here's hoping more Bond scores are in the works, but they do make it quite clear in this interview this was able to happen because LLL had a good relationship with both Warner Brothers Records and MGM the film studio.  

 

I don't think any other Bond OST albums are owned by Warner Records, right?

Yep, I spent time some a while back trying to find a copy of Snow Business that sounded better than the copy from his site. I'd probably buy an expansion.

 

I'm sure I read somewhere a suggestion that Arnold was unhappy with the album assembly he was asked to do for DAD (focusing on the more electronic cues) and leaked the sessions. Could explain why it's his only Bond score with such a leak.

I wasn't talking about the main program.  I was talking about the "orchestra only" bonus tracks.

 

You seem to be picking apart everything I post lately.  I'm growing weary of it.

What ever happened to David Arnold? I really liked his Bond scores as well as Independence Day. Has he retired? Doesn’t seem like he’s hired to do big movies anymore 

 

Him and another dude scored all 4 seasons of Sherlock, the BBC show with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman

I'm confused about the "film version" cues on this release.  I can tell you right now, the "Hovercraft Chase (film version)" track is not that cue as heard in the film.

 

Also, this thread was difficult to track down.  I think the dumb forum software must deny searches with the word "die" in them or something.  So stupid.
