            Isn't it a conflict of interest having Blofeld review a James Bond theme track?

              The mastering on this song is straight ass. It’s so smashed in the soft part that the swells have no dynamic room to swell so they just turn into a smooshed mess of digital distortion. I visibly winced

                Hope they don’t do her like they did Radiohead. Spectre was too good for that movie anyway.

                    it just sounds like everything adele or lana del rey, or overproduced female voice glorification without timbral complexity value.

                      I for one reaaaallly enjoyed Sam Smith's theme for Spectre

                          Wasn't really a huge fan kind of a boring bond theme tbh

                              sounded too much like skyfall imo

                                            I really like this song. A far better Bond theme than "The writing's on the wall" and "Skyfall". My only issue with it is the mixing. It gets really muddy once the strings peak at the end. And I coulda done with Billie's vocals sounding a bit cleaner. So I'm looking forward to hearing her sing it live.

                                              Most Bond themes whether legendary, average or bad, I can at least remember the melody of and at least some if not all the lyrics. With this one though I've already forgotten it. If anything it could have been a lot more Billie Eilish so that it at least stood out.

                                                    Your complimenting the instrumental so so so much more than billies voice and choice in lyrics. This tells me she simply wasn’t the best choice, but due to her current fame she was the choice for views and everything viral.

                                                                                              I completely disagree. More boring than her usual stuff and doesn’t sound epic or cool or even remotely exciting if the film cuts from an action scene into this it will be jarring and confusing. Billies worst single and it also fails at a bond song. I can confirm that years from now this will be an embarrassment along with sam smiths crap song. I like billie but why the hell did someone think she would make a good bond song.
