Re: which is your favourite gun barrel music

I am in awe at Matt S's post - thank you so much for the information - I don't know my harp from my oboe but when I re-watch the entire series as I intend to do soon I will refer to your post and listen with interest - well done mate!

Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand.

Re: which is your favourite gun barrel music

DAF is the best gunbarrel music - brass, percussion, guitar and that reverb all add up perfectly. Really makes you wish what comes after was better than it is.

Re: which is your favourite gun barrel music

Best:

Dr. No - Love the sound effects in this and the late Bond theme. Love how it works into the titles too.
Goldfinger - Just the way the music sounds, awesome horn (I think) at the end. Great blend into the PTS music.
OHMSS - nice harpsichord type sound.
LALD - groovy and still very Bond!
Moonraker - rich sounding, like the rest of the soundtrack.
TLD - Rich, more-modern sounding.
GE - Awesome. Probably the best element of Eric Serra's odd score. Love the digital GB too.
TND - very classy.
TWINE - Love the lighter feel to this one and the timing - seems very video game like.
Casino Royale - I really like this gun-barrel and the blend into the title music.

Best of the best: TWINE.

Worst:

TB - don't like the farting horn!
DAF - too much treble!
LTK - timing seems out, as others have said, not GB music.
DAD - too comical.
QoS - sounds like it's done on a keyboard.

LTK, absolute favorate. And with the addition to the credits song this is one of the best soundtracks in the series.

Re: which is your favourite gun barrel music

Anyone notice a bit of a connection between the DAF gunbarrel intro theme (first few notes) and Martin's LALD JB theme?

I think I hear what you're hearing.

Re: which is your favourite gun barrel music

Interesting topic, but I would narrow it down to either FYEO or LTK's gun barrel. Both are unique and interesting.

The FYEO one is fantastic, it's bombastic, but not in an orchestral sense. "I need more cowbell!"

I rate all the 90s ones really highly too. Especially TWINE.

I hear a connection with Barry in all of Martins score, I do like the DAF gunbarrel,  also like FYEO and Arnold too

It was either that.....or the priesthood

Re: which is your favourite gun barrel music

Most of my favorite Gunbarrel's are the ones that are unique or stand out musically from the others like GE, LTK, and TWINE, but I also love some traditional arrangements like FRWL ,QOS and DAD. GE is probably my all time favorite though.

I love the GE one too, it's Serra's best piece of theme in the entire film and has such a good sound. I think the digital gun-barrel helps as it makes it so modern and fresh.
