Akumajou Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight OST

Akumajou Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight: OST summary

You know, I once read that if mankind was to continue making melodies in music at the rate it had been going for the past several hundred years, within the next fifty, there would be no new melodies to be had whatsoever. Michiru Yamane is throwing off that equation. If she makes another album like this sometimes in her lifetime, then that's it. I can't imagine the reserve of melodious patterns left to mankind standing up to two such assaults.

This album is absolutely filled with melody. In fact, some might argue that it's a little too melodious, that every track is instantly hummable, which diminishes from the whole. I suppose in some ways they would be right. But they would be missing the beauty of this album. From beginning to end, it is a sonic oddysey and emotional roller-coaster ride the likes of which have seldom been achieved in video game music and even more seldom on a single disc.

The one thing Symphony of the Night did not have in spades was a compelling storyline (whoa, whoa, back down, that's just my view), but with the help of Yamane's excellent score, you not only cared for each of the character's inhabiting Koji Igarashi's nightmarish vision, you even begin to get a feel for the castle itself. It's almost as if at points the castle is speaking to you through the music. Yes, I know, I'm a complete nutcase. Even if you can't understand some of the more metaphysical aspects of the soundtrack, the sheer breadth and depth of musical quality available on this single-disc offering is astounding, and well worth picking up. An absolute classic of the genre.
