Adele - Skyfall --minuscule review--
As I already mentioned yesterday, having only heard a snippet of the new Bond theme song, Skyfall has the potential to be the best Bond theme in over a decade. I've given the full version a few listens now and I like it even more. The song was co-written by Adele and producer Paul Epworth and it was released yesterday as a part of the celebration of it being 50 years since first James Bond film, Dr No, came out. Skyfall is a great song. It will no doubt get mislabeled as retro, but it really is quite timeless. Would fit into a 60's or 70's Bond film and fits now as well. As for the lyrics: a solid effort - all the Bond clichés are there but they are put together quite smartly and elegantly. A great job overall.
