I thought it was fitting too. Not fantastic though.

Funny thing about the Alicia Keys and Jack White song, I hated it when I first heard it in theaters then heard it again recently and like it better now. Not sure what happened the first time.

Yeah, I'm not big on the Jack White one myself, despite actually liking his work for the most part. The mix of White and Alicia Keyes's voices together just never sounded right to me. Just feels like a bad pairing.
Of course, it also could have just been disappointment due to how excellent the preceding Chris Cornell one was for Casino Royale. I'm biased anyway, but I found it kind of amazing how well it fit Bond in general. And the way it sort of created a repeated melody for the rest of the movie to use was cool as well.

I like a few Adele songs myself. Not a big fan, but I don't dislike her by any means.
Not surprising to me that her Skyfall theme is actually pretty good. Her voice is naturally old-fashioned and kinda classy, so it's an easy fit for Bond. I just wish it didn't repeat the damn word "Skyfall" so many times. Always irritates me when a song repeats its title over and over.
Good tune regardless, and I can easily picture its melody repeating throughout the movie, like the one for CR.

^Cornell's song is way superior by comparison. I think the last Bond song that was as cool before that was Garbage's World is Not Enough.

I thought the Skyfall theme song was real good. Definitely harks back to Goldfinger and such. But Chris Cornell's song was the best

All sounds good. Another Casino Royale on our hands, maybe?
Sam Mendes is a great director, so I was expecting that this one would come off in a classier style like CR, as opposed to the more "pop" style of Quantum. Sounds so far like that's exactly the case.
Really looking forward to it.

I liked CR overall but i felt it dragged in certain areas, The last half hour mostly. And with QoS it was trying to hard to be like Bourne for me but i have hope for this one.
