I like it. I've been a fan of 007 since I was young. Looking forward to the new film. When you're sitting in the cinema and the gun barrel intro begins, you know that you're always in for an exciting ride.
It definitely sounds like a Bond theme but it's a bit morose for me .. maybe that's the point because it matches the storyline? .. it's given me the good goose bumps anyway though, I especially like the orchestral backing although listening to the lyrics, I was thinking blimey, has Bond's just accidentally pulled an Emo?.
Obviously I'm disappointed The Wurzels were passed over for consideration once again. But that aside, I can see how this would be dramatic when matched with the title sequence. Better than the last one.
Daniel Craig's fifth and last does seem an odd time to be changing direction with Bond, that said. Skyfall was a partial "reboot" within his timeline and Spectre was an (apparently very bad) return to some of Bond's kitschy elements, so who knows.
I should play the new Bond, my interpretation will be that of a fat bloke (I have been preparing for this my whole life) who is a member of Camra and only communicates though Elvish. He won't do too many action scenes as he likes a sit down, his car can probably do the fighting for him; I have been sending my CV to Hollywood along with a list of actresses I want to play Bond Girls. Not heard back as yet but I'm sure they will get back to me soon.
Boss: “OK: Bond. Right, we can’t be perceived to be objectifying women, we can’t present firearms in a positive light, we can’t portray high-performance cars as desirable and we can’t suggest that violence can solve problems. So: Ideas?”
