    The new Bond theme for “Quantum of Solace” debuted Thursday, and the track by White Stripes frontman Jack White and Alicia Keys is getting mixed reviews.

    The song first surfaced in clips advertising Coca Cola products earlier this week, but today, received its first full-length play on the UK’s national radio station, BBC Radio 1.

    The track finds Jack White’s trademark fuzzy blues guitar backing White and Keys trading song lines.

    Sample lyrics include “Another blinger with the slick trigger finger for Her Majesty,” sung by White, followed by, “Another one with the golden tongue poisoning your fantasy,” voiced by Keys.

    According to a blogging critic for the Los Angeles Times, Keys, “usually a relatively bold, in-your-face R&B singer, seems oddly tamed here, her voice not meshing well with White’s yelled warble.”

    But British film magazine Empire had nothing but praise for the number.
