The positive feedback is sure to ease Adele's worries as the songstress admitted that she wasn't sure if she would lend her vocals to the movie.
In a statement she said: 'I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall, there’s a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song.
'But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no-brainer to do it in the end.'

The single is sure to be remember along with Sir Paul McCartney's Live And Let Die, which was recently voted the best of the Bond themes in a BBC5 poll.
