In my opinion, one of my least favorites has to be passpied.  It just came out of nowhere in the game and for a final level theme, it just lacks. Strange how throughout most of the game the soundtrack is awesome.

I never knew this before until Jorge brought it up several months ago, but Passepied is an actual composition long before Belmont's Revenge was made. While it is interesting that they would use it in a CV game it is the least-liked tune in the whole soundtrack. Listening to it made playing the final stage seem long and monotonous.

You don't hate on that one song from SCIV that sounds sort of like a Streets of Rage BGM.

You just don't do that.

I disagree. It's very vampire on a street corner of New Orleans meets classic Transylvanian mythology.

Yup. In fact, I actually performed this once as part of Debussy's Suite Bergamasque.
Of course, the piece loses all of its impressionistic quality to the GB's chiptune track, and it's pretty jarring as the final stage theme in a Castlevania game. But it's still a nice classical nod.

This will be an unpopular opinion (I got a lot of those concerning the series), but... entire CV Chronicles soundtrack.

It just sounds so out of place. It worked OK in Adventure Rebirth but I think they could have picked a better song.

It sounds like Wario should have been in HoD.

I'd like to say stage 4 in Legends is the worst song in the series now. I got there, listened, and pure hatred filed me lol. It's literally just a mess of bleeps and bloops with an occasional tune in there. Too bad, cus Legends has a pretty good ost (Bloody Tears on stage 1 man, highly underrated imo)
