    It’s a lovely song, dramatic in its way, but at no point do either the lyrics or the feel of the thing suggest Bond to me. I wish they’d get away from these mopey, down-tempo themes and back to something a bit ballsier. Cornell’s “You Know My Name” was excellent, and even “Skyfall” had that pervasive sense of doom (which I feel they tried to duplicate here but failed at completely.) Sam Smith’s really quite good though, isn’t he?
