I voted for NSNA, but Casino Royale should have had a nomination.

Michael Kamen.

At least there was music in GE and NSNA to complain about.

CR by an absolute landslide. But, since it ain't there, I'll punish another of Arnold's five evils and vote for TWINE.

WTF is Bill Conti's anthem-packed masterpiece doing in that list? Gravity, you need hitting over the head with a mirrorball for that one. ;)

TWINE is easily one of the worst and least memorable scores in the Bond canon... until one tries to remember the NSNA music.

Arnold gets the vote almost by default, as I enjoyed by Kamen and Serra's scores for their respective films. Conti doesn't really deserve to be on this list either. Arnold has also had a couple of decent efforts, but I'm not sure that TWINE is one of them.

Conti and Serra should be miles away from that list.I'll go for LeGrand, NSNA's score was crying out for Barry's lovin'.

This one is real easy. Legrand. Even the director, on the blu-ray extras, complained about his score. I think they were stuck with him. The score was just one of numerous production issues they had to contend with, to get this film out on time and on budget.

I am, but when up against everything else that is nominated (aside from NSNA), CR is probably the worst Bond score.

I don't think the CR score deserves to be on there. It wasn't anything particularly memorable but it had a couple moments.

If I were to pick, I'd take Arnold's DAD score.

So did GE, and many folks still hate that.

TBH, I like DAD. Quite a few memorable, anthemic cues. It's got less musical wallpaper than CR.






Love the sound of the snarling low brass, and those John Williams-esque string turns (think JURASSIC PARK).








From 2:12 onwards.

"TMWTGG" should be on this list.

Don't get the dislike for that score.

It's lightweight Barry but that's better than Arnold's best.

So... um... I vote for TWINE and then my vote gets transferred to CR... Why exactly are there only five choices, anyway?

EDIT: Any good reason these polls aren't in the polls forum, btw?

I rather liked it myself and rank it as Arnold's 2nd best Bond score with TND as his best. I'm also quite fond of "You Know My Name"(my favorite post-John Barry title song) and enjoy how it's weaved into the soundtrack like John Barry's scores used to do so with their title songs.

I consider TND to be the worst. Actually like CR and QOS somewhat.

QOS is pretty darn' good, wot.

CR has got a few good moments, but most of it''s disposable junk.

In my opinion, TWINE is probably the worst. DAD and CR are next in line.

Get FYEO and GE off that list!

Please put them back! I voted for GE.

Of course, the truly fair way to do this is to have all Bond scores as options so we can get a more accurate result.

Interestingly, my option's been removed and yet I can't vote again. Curses.
