Once upon a time, Falcom put out a subpar game with even more subpar music. Over a decade later, in an act of total randomness, Falcom decided to remake said game. A dungeon-crawler about Dinosaurs? Really?

Now, this soundtrack isn't for the remade game. Rather, this soundtrack is a reissue of the old "Music From Dinosaur" album, but with a decent fix to the FM synth. The touched-up synth definitely helps make the album more listenable. That is, I don't want to hit my head against a wall while listening.

But that doesn't make this album good. Its greatest value lies in being a true representation of a part of Falcom history (since "Music From" missed the mark). With over 30 tracks from Sound Team JDK, I will admit that there are a few that are enjoyable. With that many songs to choose from, it's inevitable that they'd stumble upon something good. But for the most part, I still consider this soundtrack a failure. Purchase at your own risk.
