John Barry remains THE Bond composer as far as I'm concerned.

I've been pleasantly surprised with the drip-feed of information about Skyfall, except for this. I know it's only a sample but I'm not hearing any of those important musical textures that define a Bond score. Barry's sweeping strings were well mimicked by Arnold, this seems closer to the experimental approach we heard in Goldeneye. Newman's a great composer but not convinced he's right for this. Here's hoping the rest of the score is better.

To be honest this sounds a little bit more like the Bourne Films to me. That and a teeny mix of a 70s epic movie.

Thomas Newman is a great composer but I think a Bond movie needs a really meaty score and whilst I am making an assumption on one track, it seems as though it is out of place to me. John Barry WAS Bond and I still think David Arnold more than matched John Barry in terms of richness and depth. For example, listen to the Casino Royale Soundtrack #6: Solange, shut your eyes and you I swear it is John Barry composing. I am also a bit let down by the Adele song, as again someone with a HUGE voice should do such a sugary song. I will rest all judgement till I see the film shortly and hope it all gels together nicely

Might fit to the sequence in the movie but has no 'character'. Apart from - perhaps - 'Casino Royale' this is my problem with all scores since Barry left. Anyone who remembers the score of 'Tomorrow never dies', 'Die another day', 'Quantum of solace'? Guess not. But everybody still remembers 'Goldfinger', 'Thunderball', 'YOLT', OHMSS, 'Moonraker' where the music represented the movie perfectly.

Oh - and I forgot something: It seems to me that for any reason they kind of hide the Bond theme. Barry always managed to implant it in his score.
