This CD features twenty original sound tracks from the SNES Soulblazer. Track 21 is an arranged version of the ending song. The OSV tracks range from slow melodic compositions all the way to down right *funky* music. To be honest I didn't remember the funky tracks from the game so they really took me by surprise, but after listening to the whole thing a few times they really grew on me.
- "A good mix of melodic and upbeat songs, although the instrument sounds could use some work."
- "Bouncy and rocking and sometimes beautiful."

The music to Soul Blazer, one of my all time favorite games in the past, instantly drew me in when I played it. I had always wanted to get a soundtrack of it. This CD contains *all* of the OSV tracks from Soul Blazer. Yukihide Takeawa, the composer of the game's music, is one composer to highly praise for doing such a spectacular job in the game's musical score. The tracks are bouncy and rocking and some are beautiful, like "Lover from the Endless Night". That track is in a pop-style tempo, but the melody is beautiful and soothing for an evening's rest. At the end of the CD, there is a majestically arranged version of the same tune performed on high quality synthesizers and heartpounding drums and instruments... plus Japanese lyrics written and sung by Yukihide Takeawa himself! Beautiful... beautiful! The album is surprisingly still available in Japan, so Soul Blazer fans are highly recommended to pick this one up.
