AllMusic Review by

Shaken, Not Stirred: The Essential James Bond Themes is a sneaky 21-track anthology of 007 themes performed by the Ian Rich Orchestra and a cast of unknown vocalists who would sound more appropriate piping softly from the overhead speakers in a CIA elevator than blaring from the sound system of a souped-up Aston Martin. Listeners who have the unfortunate experience of being duped into picking up this collection of bad covers should trade their copies in for The Best of James Bond: 30th Anniversary, which includes all of the original versions.
