  1. Love Adele but I keep wondering what this would have sounded like had it been the before her death planned Winehouse...

  5. Fabulous. She really does nothing wrong.

  6. This smells fishy, like a decoy they launched themselves. It sounds too 'literal' as a bond theme, too much what one would expect.

  7. Very nice voice. Utterly mediocre music.

  8. Liking it. Not blown away, as other reports suggested we would be.

    Like the trip-hoppiness of it. Like that it's not tuneless wailing a la Jack White.

  9. I'm kind of loving it. It's very Bond, and Adele sounds very much like a chanteuse of the old order. I could see her singing this in a shimmering gown on a small stage in an intimate club sometime between the wars.

  10. I think it's too old school Bond, unless she reaches some swooping uptake later in the song.

  11. Good, has Bond feeling in it.

  12. Some of us actually PREFER old school Bond. Reminds us of when we, too, were young and suave - if only in our own minds.

  13. It's a very "Bond" song, and she nails it. I can't wait to see the movie! WooOOooOOoo Daniel Craig!

  14. Sounds like Adele doing a Bond theme, wisely including the classic Monty Norman 4 note Bond motif from "Dr. No." When Bond themes have strayed too far from the formula they fail, and this one sounds appropriate.

  18. God her voice is like silk! I could listen to Adele 24/7 and never get sick of her..

  19. Thank goodness they didn't get Rihanna or Ke$ha to record it.

  20. My favorite James Bond themes were the ones by Sheena Easton, Duran Duran, and Tina Turner. This Bond theme sucks.

  21. I'll wait for the full thing. As usual she sounds good(when does she not), but the song itself seems blah

  22. Love Adele, but thinking this song sounds like it was made for Winehouse to sing. That would have been great.

  23. Disappointing. It's yet another attempt to sound "Bond-esque," which has doomed the last decade and a half of Bond themes. Instead of constantly trying to ape "Goldfinger" or "Live and Let Die," I'd like to hear a new Bond theme that echoes "Nobody Does It Better" or "For Your Eyes Only."

  24. I guess I expected something like this. It's still not Bond. Casino Royale was better. But this one is definitely better than that trash from the White Stripes and Alicia Keys.

  25. Always sounds the same! utterly lifeless and original !! disappointing
