Shhhhhh! The Sounds of Spys and Subtrafuge


Secret Agent S.O.U.N.D.S.
1995
*

Enough suave and sophistication to bring out the James Bond in all of us, Secret Agent S.O.U.N.D.S. is a long overdue compilation of bands doing classic spy themes with an additional '90s twist. There are a few originals to be found on here, like the Neptunas' "Double-0 Seafoam" and the Tiki Tones' "Traitor Vic." But the highlights included on here are the more familiar tunes done in the style of modern surf and garage rock. Combustible Edison doing Henry Mancini's "A Shot in the Dark" and Man or Astro Man? covering "Goldfinger" (which even has a dialogue sample of Bond's most famous adversary) are the highlights of this record. All in all, this record would be the perfect background music for the video game Goldeneye. ~ Mike DaRonco, All Music Guide
