AllMusic Review by

The Best of Bond ... James Bond celebrates over three decades worth of Bond theme songs, including "The James Bond Theme," Shirley Bassey's legendary "Goldfinger," "Moonraker," "Diamonds Are Forever," and Lulu's "The Man with the Golden Gun." Other Bond divas like Sheena Easton ("For Your Eyes Only"), Carly Simon ("Nobody Does It Better"), and Rita Coolidge ("All Time High") are also represented, and Tom Jones' appropriately booming "Thunderball" and Paul McCartney & Wings' "Live and Let Die" are among the album's other highlights. Tina Turner's "Goldeneye" and Sheryl Crow's "Tomorrow Never Dies" bring the collection into the '90s, just in time for the release of 1999's Bond installment, The World Is Not Enough.
