The new and final mix of the theme song for 'Casino Royale' is now online. Every thing else about this film looks brilliant(although, I may be biased as I am a Bond geek), but this song You Know My Name is shit. Saying that though, it's better than Sheryl Crow's caterwauling, or that aural diarrhoea that the man-armed baby thief that is Madonna threw up at us for Die Another Day. Tina Turner's was crap as well. I take it back, then, Chris Cornell is just following in the tradition of modern 007 movies. He must've done a brilliant one first, but then the producers came in and said 'Chris, it's for a Bond Movie! Make it shit!!'
What the hell has happened to Chris Cornell? Soundgarden were brilliant. His post break-up solo album was also good, if a little morose. Then came Audioslave, the band he formed with the remaining members of Rage Against The Machine. Their first album was passable, the second terrible, and I can't comment on the third one because I've refused to buy it. His is one of the most formidable and unique singing voices in rock music, yet he's wasting it on shitty Led Zep rip-offs and crappy Bond themes. Sort it out, Chris!
Oh, and tell Tom Morello to try a different guitar solo.
