The only 2 tracks i remember from SCV4 are the main theme and the vampire killer theme.. everything else is  just some weird organ 16 bit music,its just so un-castlevania like it puts me to sleep.

ROB had killer Kickass Redbook origianl CD quality music and the remixes of best Castelvania themes(i think it has more NES remixes than SC4) and symphony of the night has even better soundtrack... SC4 stands no chance and yet somehow i see the poll is biased towards SC4 which is insane.. nostalgia is a bad judge!

Which, of course, is nothing more than your personal opinion, as you can't speak for people who legitimatelly like SCIV's OST better than SotN. It's not always about sound quality, son. Composition, harmony and melody play a huge role too, and SCIV pulls it off with flying colors.
The mastermind behind the "Umbra of Sorrow" project. But not the only one.

I just don't see how anyone who is neutral about castlevania like me can prefer SC4's soundtrack over SOTN,it has some of the most boring,drab soundtracks in all of Castlevania.

Castlevania music generally is rock/synth and something that is just exhilarating and energetic not this boring moody 16 bit organ composition of SC4,in fact its like an oddball in the entire series.

SOTN stays true to the originals in terms of the soundtrack and contrary to your opinion the sound quality makes it excellent.

Just for comparison's sake just compare Bloody tears from SOTN to SC4 :-

SC4= https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOWUSsFar-s
SOTN= https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgkxSkF7QOU
ROB= https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqWW0PTkjR8

SC4's blood tears sounds like its muffled or something its not even better than the ROB red book version SOTN's bloody tears sounds excellent.

ROB's Vampire killer puts SC4's vampire killer to shame.

SC4= https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5mMEyMoXB0

Seriously objectively speaking SC4 has some of the least impressive soundtracks in the entire series.
