I'm sorry to post before listening the remix but...I'm really amazed! I came here to look if OCR would give us a little halloween surprise, but I didn't expect an album! :O

I saw this on Youtube, in my subscription box today. Really cool remix, 5/5 indeed.

I will admit that garlic was pretty kickass, and definately deserved the spot on the other album, but this is a fantastic piece of music. Keep up the awesome work jm!

I'm glad that I'm not hearing an over-used whip-crack throughout this song. Something made me fear that was going to happen (a few too many times through Juese Belmont, I think), but it's obvious that I had no need to think such evil things like that could happen.

JM does some awesome work with jazz, and it's quite obvious here. I think I could almost cut and paste my last review here, change a couple sentences, and I'd be good to go. Fantastic soundscape going on, unique and funky. Transistions are smooth and seamless. Just hard not to tap my foot to this stuff. I'm a little dissapointed in the fade-out though. Not sure how to get a good ending, however, so I'm not very helpful. Otherwise, great job.

One thing is for sure - JM doesn't disappoint much with his music. Great & unique take on the original - it's upbeat and rolling, and quite jazzy, which is something you don't see really when it comes to Castlevania, much less something that preserves some measure of uptempo.

Get funky! I like how a lot of the phrases were extended so the different sections had more of a chance to breathe- we've all heard vampire killer a million times, but extending the parts gives everyone a chance to fully appreciate the arrangement. Good stuff, nice solos, and overall a pretty good track.

JM, I have long been a fan of your work and this does not disappoint . It is a very fresh take on a theme that has had its fair share of mixes. Nicely done! I really like the build up in the intro, it really sets the mood for the rest of the remix.
