008: sounds like bond?

The classic Bond themes have a distinctive bombast - minor key ballads that crank up to huge, hauntingly dramatic moments. Here are its siblings with their big Barry-esque orchestrations and (one hopes) Bassey-like belting.

Black Cloud Bond

First, thank you Christopher @crsripley for this bead.
Playing it will fill my days with suspense, danger, and a pleasant tension. (But what to wear??)

With the ominous intro on the third track from 'Years of Refusal began I heard Bond, James Bond. Then came the buzzing guitar, the key jumps and wide-range crooning, the explosive percussion and lyrics that suggest yearning for that volatile, unattainable Double-O.

"...The one I love roosts in the mind
Can snap this spell
Or, increase hell
I can chase you and I can catch you
But there is nothing I can do to make you mine
Black cloud, black cloud..."

It's also believed that the baby Moz is holding is actually a bomb.
