 Amazon.com: Tomorrow Never Dies (1997 Film): Music: David Arnold   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
As originally released in 1997, "Tomorrow Never Dies" was the best Bond film score in the last decade (at least!); the only problem with that original CD was the absence of any music from the 2nd half of the film.
The action music is exactly what you would expect coming from a Bond film, with those high and wailing trumpets, as in "White Knight", "The Sinking of the Devonshire", "Bike Chase", "Bike Shop Fight", "Boarding the Stealth", and "A Tricky Spot For 007".
The addition of the music from the second half of the soundtrack makes this a great addition to your James Bond soundtrack collection, or even if you just love great action music.

 Jamiroquai | Music | Singles | Alright   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The European release of Alright (printed in Austria) has the same tracks and catalogue number as this CD except for the cover, which has the same colours as the disc one release and is distributed in a plastic case, compared with the cardboard sleeve in which the UK versions are distributed.
Such is the case with their latest single, Alright, which debuted last week at 35 on the strength of Jamiroquai's own excellent mixes and now soars to number one after getting the Todd Terry terpsichorean treatment.
As this is dated 1996 and the single didn't get released in the UK until April 1997 this is a very early promo of the single.

 Amazon.com: L. A. Confidential (1997 Film): Music: Various Artists   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
It was Jackie Gleason who was perhaps the first to introduce "mood" music - music for lovers - and it caught on big-time during most of the 50s.
Each song perfectly fits the mood of the scene in which you hear it, and the instrumental music by Jerry Goldsmith (of which there is one track on this album) is also very fifties "film noir".
I rarely remember the soundtracks to movies, but upon seeing "LA Confidential" the music was an element that just stuck with me. Hanson did a masterful job using music, whether it was accompanying a montage, or being played in the background.
