Total Time:

Persona Revelations and Eternal Punishment are so far the only 2 games under the Shin Megami Tensei series that have been released in English (excluding cousin-like Gameboy games such as DemiKids and Revelations: The Demon Slayer). This is also the first time I've ever heard of Masaki Kurokawa. But whoever he is, he has done a great job on this soundtrack.

This soundtrack comprises mainly of techno and dance tracks and that's why I really like it. However, the theme song of the game "Change Your Way" (vocal song played at the ending) was not added into this CD. I wonder why they didn't add it. I was also quite disappointed that the original last boss battle music was added into a mixed track. It only lasted for a very short while... Track 26 of disc 2 is the remixed version of the last boss music. I prefered the original one because it sounded less mechanical.

Nevertheless, there was an addition of 2 extra tracks that I didn't hear in the game - Persona Mambo and Persona Rock, which are both vocal songs. Persona Mambo sounded cute but it was in Japanese, so I couldn't understand. The Persona Rock music was nice but the vocalist's English was so broken that it spoiled the entire song in a hilarious way.

There are many good tracks I can pick out from these two CDs. I personally enjoyed the opening theme, which had a mixture of techno and opera music. I also liked the battle and boss battle music, as they were fast-paced. Here are other tracks worth listening to: "Club Zodiac" - This music is cool. It is slow moving but there's a nice beat to it. "Aoba Park", "Sumaru TV", "Abandoned Factory", "Amenotrihune" and "Monado Mandara", "Velvet Room" are all great tracks. "Map I & II" and "BGM II" are remixes of "Change Your Way". And last but not least my favorite - the music from the Satomi Tadashi Pharmacy, this tune is so catchy!

The only song I really hated alot was track 14 from disc 2, "Undersea Ruins", because it reminds me of that horrible dungeon (those of you who have played the game will know what I am talking about).

Overall, this is a great soundtrack and worth buying.
