soundtracks are often so delicious
, and from the taste Konami has offered up, Order of Ecclesia
will take its rightful place as the successor to the franchise's long legacy of awesome. Check out the soundtrack page, and be sure to click the links (in white) that allow you to sample the tracks. They're all catchy, but number 10 on disc one is a good place to start. Conveniently, it's also likely to be the first link you'll click.
Like Castlevania? We do -- to an embarrassing degree. Check out our impressions of
Order of Ecclesia from E3, settle in for a trailer, or go Behind the Boxart with a Konami graphic designer. But enough talk -- have at you!

Is it weird that I usually play games with the sound off?

Really, though; there are plenty of games that are great fun to play but still have bland scores. Castlevania is consistently one of the greatest game series musically, though (Dance of Gold, Tower of Mist, and Abandoned Pit from SotN and Pitch Black Intrusion from DoS are all in my top ten favorite game themes), so I can't ever say I've been guilty of muting a Castlevania game.
As for the track snippets available, I'm fairly certain that I've heard them all already in the OoE trailers, but they're very typical of Castlevania music. Chamber music and harpsichord pieces updated to be more upbeat and electronic. I think I'm officially anticipating this game as much as I was Brawl.

And it hopefully won't let you down like Brawl did? o8?

If, by let me down, you mean easily meet and exceed my expectations, then I certainly hope that Order of Ecclesia is the biggest disappointment of my life :P

You guys weren't kidding that track 10 was a good start. Man, I wish that the soundtrack was a preorder bonus.
