OHMSS themed as QOS

The right tracks timed with the right sequence can make a huge difference in the quality. This not not if qos sounds better than ohmss but what else could also work.

OHMSS is a rather beautiful film. Love this pre-title sequence!

That said, I don't think Arnold's score matches up rather well with this scene. Too overbearing and bold for what is just a beach brawl. It is interesting to see AWTD as an instrumental over titles, though.

I agree with Harmsway. The beginning scene with that score is too emotional imo. But I love QoS score with OHMSS title sequence.

I find it very strange just how well these things go together!

I also love the instrumental 'Another Way To Die'. From an instrumental point of view, it's a great song, and it would have been great if they'd used this wihout the White warbling or the off-key Keys!!!

I like it. It gives the sequence an interesting twist, particularly the AWTD instrumental title sequence.

That was a rather good video. It was interesting how well the score by Arnold fit in that particular scene. There were parts were it was absolutely perfect, and other parts where it was so so. But overall, it was brilliant! :( Also interesting to see the AWTD instrumental over titles. I enjoyed that.
