Single Review – Sam Smith – Writing’s On The Wall

With the next instalment of James Bond on it’s way the theme song for Spectre is Writing’s On The Wall by Sam Smith. The track has the typical Bond features with the orchestral instrumentation which is the sole contributor to the music here. Sam’s vocal ability here is undeniable from the moments of power to the delicate falsettos and I can see how it might fit into the whole Bond theme despite venturing into cheesy ballad territory at times. It is perhaps not different enough to Adele’s effort in terms of the musical arrangement and this limited his vocals at times, but a solid track nonetheless.
