You have got to be kidding me right? It's an indredible good action score.

I couldn't disagree more. Kamen's score is excellent, and I love the way the Bond theme is incorporated. It's my second-favourite non-Barry Bond score (after Live and Let Die). I also like the Spanish

A View to a Kill.Is it any good? K.M.

Great score...I love that Barry cue where Bond and Tibbit drive to the Chateau.

Sir Roger's best ham in years although the left eyebrow stole the movie right from over his nose.

Can someone recommend the best Bond scores to look for? It's been so long since I've seen any of the films. I was partial to some tracks I had heard from The World Is Not Enough and Tomorrow Never dies, but perhaps someone can recommend the best of the Barry scores?

Firstly, I'd like to express my profound thanks to everyone who's contributed to this thread, espcially Indysolo, Stefancos and Robthehand. I've found all the information here to be invaluable in my quest to have some of my favourite music in what I think is the correct order. I'm pleased to see that I'm not the only one who thinks that chronological order is also "right". :mrgreen:

Robthehand had trouble placing some tracks from "The Man with the Golden Gun" and "A View To A Kill".

Help is here. A year late, I'm afraid, but it's here. I've just watched these films again (for the first time in about 20 years) just for the purpose of solving these problems.

The Man with the Golden Gun

"Hip's Trip" is for the sequence where Bond and Hip travel to the MI5 base in the capsized "Queen Elizabeth", and comes after "Getting the bullet".

"Goodnight Goodnight" is for the sequence in Bond's hotel room, where he entertains Andrea after bundling Goodnight into his wardrobe. It comes after "Kung Fu fight".

A View To A Kill

"Bond Escapes Roller" is from the scene where Bond escapes from the submerged Rolls Royce (Rolls Royce = Roller, as anyone who watched "Minder" should remember), and therefore comes immediately after "Tibbett gets washed out".

"Destroy Silicon Valley" is for the scene where Bond and Stacey are in the map room in the mine, and discover just what the Zorin's plan is. It belongs right after "He's dangerous".

Something that doesn't appear to have been covered in this thread; in "The Living Daylights", the track "Murder at the Fair" is actually from two separate scenes. The first is, indeed from the Vienna fairground, but the second I title "Interview with the General" and comes from the Tunis sequence, where Bond holds General Pushkin at gunpoint. Now, the scenes are in the correct order, and, from memory, no music belongs between them, but they are two distinct scenes, and you may wish to split them up. I calculate the break to occur at about 2:21.9 in the original track.

Now that I've made a contribution, I fell that I've earned a question.

The World Is Not Enough

I've downloaded the two tracks from David Arnold's site, which plug a few gaps. Does anyone know if there's been a release, official or otherwise, of the complete score to this film? As I've got my hands on the complete versions of "Tomorrow Never Dies" and "Die Another Day", it would be good to do the same for TWINE.

People are weird.

Track 4, Paris and Bond, corresponds with the other track of the same title and The Seduction.

Really? So, if one were pressed for disc space as far as an expanded score was concerned, that could be left off, right?

BTW, I'd like to thank Neil and Co. for putting up these re-organized tracklistings. Thanks!

There's one thing I still don't like about this arrangement: there's not a good sense of closure at the end of the score (which was still a problem before, with the CD arrangement). The song there helps, but I'd like for the score on the album to end differently. Sanchez's death and the two "Pam" cues in the film would have finished it perfectly, but these cues weren't put on the CD.  

Thanks for your Licence to Kill cue list, I've just edited it yesterday and it flows much better now. I would suggest to put the Prague suite at the end (from the James Bond Collection); it reprises some of it and contains an instrumental version of Licence to Kill, providing a better sense of closure at the end.

I can't help but think Bond 77 should be split up in a few places, but I can't follow through on that. I'm going to rent the movie this weekend, so I guess we'll find out.

I'm not sure if this is what you're saying, but the album for The Spy Who Loved Me is a re-recording, and many cues are different arrangements from those that were recorded for the film.

Hi, i really appreciate the efforts people are putting in here to get the soundtracks in the right order. I have already retracked OHMSS and Goldfinger. Will be editing Thunderball and YOLT in the next few days.

I've downloaded the two tracks from David Arnold's site, which plug a few gaps. Does anyone know if there's been a release, official or otherwise, of the complete score to this film? As I've got my hands on the complete versions of "Tomorrow Never Dies" and "Die Another Day", it would be good to do the same for TWINE.

Can somebody please explain how i get these tracks from David Arnold's site? Which browser are you using and where does it cache them? Do they have obvious names?

Yes, but sometimes it's taken from a different part of the film. It's basically just putting music there that the composer didn't write for that particular scene. So it could be "tracked" from another film, or from another part of the same film.

If a different theme is incorporated into the score (like Jaws in Airplane!), that's not tracking.
