The fact either of you want to actually shell out for this cheap cash-in is disconcerting. That artwork is horrible and the audio quality of the previous albums (definitely the first one at least, which was proven to be directly ripped from one of the CD albums of the 90s) have been questionable. Certainly not the tribute Super Castlevania IV deserves by any means and not worth $30.

I agree, I don't really care for the SCIV art work. I've done some digging into reviews and have seen negative commentary regarding quality issues.

In terms of picking and choosing vinyls Iam8bit sell some pretty interesting ones. They recently had a Cuphead collection and the artwork and casing was superb.

I'd be buying any CV vinyl as more of a collectible. However, Electrical outlet stores here sell LP players for 99 AUD. Surely in the US they'd be a dime a dozen.

Yeah, both the Cv3 and 4 artwork were pretty whack.  The SCV4 one looks like an adult swim show. Still love the hell out of the Simon's Quest one thoughm

Even if no one has a record player, just get the Vinyl soundtrack anyways. You can always get a record player down the road, but the soundtrack release itself probably won't be around for nearly as long.

As a big fan of SCV4, the artwork for the vinyl is underwhelming, the back cover looks a little bit better though. The art style reminds me of King of The Hill  :P

The rest of the artwork is better, but the Medusa scene looks too much like Dragon's Lair.

Not to mention the fact she seems to be in the wrong location as he SCV4 appearance had her in the middle of the swamps. But those four pics do looks cool. The Orphic viper image does look particularly menacing even though it wasn't nearly that big in the game  :o
