5.0 out of 5 stars John Barry's Bond Swansong March 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
It seems inevitable that with all the legal wranglings going on between John Barry's agents and EON productions that, sadly, The Living Daylights will prove to be Barry's last outing into the world of James Bond - but what an incredible swansong it is! John Barry is the grandfather of the soundtrack genre. It was he who created the "James Bond Sound" and this CD is Barry at his best. The title song, (performed by the Norwegian group a-ha) is present in various instrumental guises throughout this CD, though it is the numerous interpretations of "Where Has Everybody Gone" and "If There Was A Man" (both performed by The Pretenders), which make this CD a "must have" for all collectors of quality film music. This remastered and expanded masterpiece is the most complete version of this soundtrack ever available - with a total of 9 additional tracks which were not available on previous releases - which in fact adds up to almost an extra 30 minutes of Barry genius.
The sweeping majesty of tracks such as Mujahadin and Opium are indicative of just how versatile and broad the Barry spectrum is. As is customary with this composer, there's plenty on this CD to set the blood coursing through your veins at an increased rate - "Hercules Takes Off" and "Exercise At Gibraltar" to name but two. Not only that, but romance as well! Typified in the sheer excellence of "Kara Meets Bond" and "Into Vienna", (itself a romantic take on the "If There Was A Man" theme). Of course, no Bond score would be complete without a track which contains "The James Bond Theme", and this is to be found within "Ice Chase".

4.0 out of 5 stars Rays Of Light From "The Living Daylights" May 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
John Barry's "The Living Daylights" is a treasure trove of masterfully written James Bond music. It is a stallion in a stable of stallions of Barry "Bond" scores, the flavour of which I'm sure we have'nt seen or tasted before. Only after the release of this 'crash-hot' remastered and updated soundtrack score does one realise what a divine piece of work this well and truly is and that John Barry may have saved or written arguably one of his best and most memorable "Bond" scores for last, along with (1985's) "A View To A Kill". With it's pulsating synthesized rhythm driven themes and variations on a theme it's unlike anything we've heard before from Mr Barry, when it comes to "Bond" scores anyway and I welcome this new approach with open arms.
My favourite track from "The Living Daylights" score is the exquisitely written "Exercise At Gibraltar" all 6 minutes and 21 seconds of it! From the dashing opening barrel sequence John Barry gradually builds up the tension with every note hinting that something sinister is about to transpire - which it does of course, and which makes this track such a great listen with its mixture of styles.
A few of my other favourites that are worth mentioning are "Hercules Takes Off", "Koskov Escapes" , "Assassin And Drugged", "The Sniper Was A Woman" , "Ice Chase" ,and "AirBond".
This score unfortunately for one reason or another seems to have been John Barry's last for the James Bond films but nonetheless he finished on a high note with this Fab addition and has left the stage with an encore, I'm sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding soundtrack! Jan. 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
Before he died, Cubby Broccoli commented that he did not care for the A-ha's The Loving Daylight theme and hey would return to he ballad style of Bond songs. That sort of shocked me, when I read that, for I consider The Loving Daylights one of the top three - Tom Jones' Thunderball and Shirley Bassey's Goldfinger the other two. A-ha was he first Timothy Dalton string of Bond Film, so maybe that express some of Cubby's displeasure. While Dalton made a good boy, he was too tenderhearted for some.

This sound track, with all the beautiful John Barry music, rocks. The music is bright, incisive and sensual. Some sound tracks give you small cuts of music from the film, but this gives your wonderful full-length songs that just floats around you and lifts you up!
I use this soundtrack for my aerobics' work out. It is the perfect lengths and pace to do a complete workout. A-ha's song just gets the blood to pumping! It makes the hour pass so fast and is fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Soundtrack from a Bond Movie Ever! Aug. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
OK, maybe I'm a bit biased because I was thrilled to death when Tim Dalton became Bond. I felt that he nailed the written Bond better than any of the other fine actors (meaning Connery and Brosnan).
Regardless of how much I enjoyed the movie, this soundtrack is awesome! It thrilled The Living Daylights out of me when I learned it was available again. This movie had the best soundtrack of the first 20. If you enjoy Bond music, grab this while you can.
