Quantum Of Solace (Soundtrack, Score)

In 2006, Casino Royale brilliantly re-launched the Bond franchise by going gritty and showing the character slowly starting to morph into the debonair, wisecracking spy we all know and love. The only negative in the movie was the computer-animated title sequence and bum song. Here, Jack White and Alicia Keys triumph with "Another Way to Die," the first decent Bond theme since 1981's "For Your Eyes Only." The return of composer David Arnold is also a major plus. Now, if only Quantum of Solace didn't beat out Octopussy to become the single worst Bond movie title ever.
