Royale theme "You Know My Name" reviewed.
seemed like an odd selection. I had no idea who he was and his
(ironically) titled song doesn't have the requisite darkness or
aggression. It sounds like a b-side from some 1980's grunge act. Not in
the least bit Bondian.
Ho-hum was my reaction to hearing this. I hoped it might be another 'A
View To A Kill'. It sounds very homemade and weak in contrast to the
usual sweep of Bond themes. I must be the only person in the world who
liked the 'Die another Day' theme. At least it sounded different and
futuristic. This sounds like a load of hackneyed old cobblers. If I was
Eon I would bump this to the end credits. It never really goes anywhere
and further plays highlight the flaws and so-so lyrics. A definite
mistake to hire Cornell.
Listening to this song is like watching a Chuck Norris video on a
space-hopper as you take a polaroid photograph of a rubik's cube. I
preferred the work Mr Cornflour did with Milli Vanilli but overall I
liked it. Give that man a throat lozenge.
