I'll be honest. I'm not much of a Castlevania fan, but I have enjoyed playing the games very much. And because of that, I had to get this CD, just to relive the memory of playing the original NES games (Castlevania 1, 2, and 3).
The album starts out with two arranged tracks of "Bloody Tears" and "Beginning", both of which are ghoulishly done and performed. In fact, I felt a bit of the chills from listening to these two tracks at first. After that, well you know what comes next, the game music! All the music from the three Castlevania games for the NES are here. As always, the composition and melody are incredible, despite the weak sound system which dominated most NES game scores at the time. Once you hear the all-too recognizable "Vampire Killer", the rocking "Bloody Tears", and the groovy "Beginning" the way they originally sounded, you'll definitely remember what it was like to play those games to death (no pun intended) - as long as you forgive the sound quality.
If you're an avid Castlevania fan, this one might be worth your money - just don't expect anything groundbreaking.
