When I first got in to Bond music, My first score was "The World Is Not Enough". After hearing David Arnold, I was hooked, I started buying them and haven't stoped. I liked John Barry's older Bond scores but some of them like "FRWL" the music just didn't have the magic that Arnolds scores had. But "The Living Daylights" has it, this is what gave birth to Arnolds scores today, the synth beats and Bond theme all of it, Barry caught on, but a little to late, Bill Conti and Marvin Marvin Hamlisch and tried to use synth and up beat music for Bond but it never turned out very well, but when Barry noticed that his scores were a little out of date, he perfected the system with "TLDL", a more modern score for a more modern Bond, a score that could have worked with the Brosnan movies. If you like the sound of "TND", "TWINE", or "DAD" then you will fill right at home. I'm glad that its been reprinted, so you don't have to be rich to get it! I wish Barry would have returned for "LTK", geting Kaman was nuts, hes a good composer but not for a Bond movie. The Bond theme is one of the greatest theme of all times, put it to use, and thats what barry did in this one. This is my second favorite score next to "TND", forget eBay, buy this now.
