Goldeneye

Review

Except for the first and last tracks, most of this soundtrack is an excellent action orientated source for music. This would work best with a science fiction adventure, with the second track being my favourite (for when the characters break into a space station or installation).

The obligatory love theme can be skipped, unless you have romantic elements in your adventures (I tried once, and failed miserably -- though my second attempt worked a lot better). The use of synthetic instruments fairly well rules out fantasy adventures, but everything else should get a look in.

Overall, fun and worth a look.
