I got the chance to play Mirror of Fate when it came to consoles recently as an HD version. I was excited to see the Lord's of Shadows take on the more classic characters of the Castlevania franchise. The game was great, but the music is a major part of that. It's a haunting and melodic journey that your ears will enjoy.

Sadly though, I noticed a number of tracks missing on this CD, including several pieces that were my favorites in the game itself. Maybe they were on the previous soundtrack for Lords of Shadow, maybe not. That's a major detractor for me because every beautiful piece of music in the game is worth enjoying on a single soundtrack.

If you like Mirror of Fate or the Lords of Shadow games, then this is a must. If you're more of a classic Castlevania fan, take a chance with this soundtrack. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Prior to this year’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, franchise reboot composer Oscar Araujo scored the first direct sequel to 2010’s original Lords of Shadow, subtitled Mirror of Fate. Released late in 2013, Mirror of Fate’s plot surrounds Lords of Shadow protagonist Gabriel Belmont’s son and grandson respectively, Trevor and Simon, as well as series character Alucard. Just as the game was panned as a slight departure from the original Lords of Shadow formulaically, Araujo’s score is similarly different, but thankfully and perhaps not surprisingly, a wonderful and exciting work in its own right.

Whether by consequence of the Mirror of Fate game’s different playability or other influences like track arrangement, the score has more of a stage-by-stage feel combined with Araujo’s other Castlevania work, rather than the embodiment of a “journey” seemingly implied with the original Lords of Shadow. In cases where the music wasn’t as succinct, effective, or enthralling, a weaker album would result, but that isn’t the situation here in terms of the compositions themselves. Mirror of Fate alternates, nay, almost takes turns between tracks of beauty and tracks of action and suspense. However, such flipping back-and-forth doesn’t detract from the overall experience.

Sequences of aural beauty include those at the beginning, “Mirror of Fate Main Theme” and “Gabriel’s Farewell,” where the former presents undulating strings awash in gothic keyboard melody and the latter, albeit with a tinge more melancholy and feeling of yearn, remind of the wondrous scenes of Lords of Shadow like “Labyrinth Entrance” and “Waterfalls of Agharta.

Yet again amazing! Great soundtrack, great game, great seller! Got my album very quickly and everything was in tip top shape. I surprising listen to this one more than the Lords of Shadow 2 soundtrack, but both are great.

One great track after another. Thank you for this masterpiece. Now, the reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is missing the Map/Inventory/Skills track which is also a epic track, why? why? it was left out? there are also other sounds throughout the game that were not included, the cd presentation was poor (I was hoping to see characters and/or games pictures and/or the composer's comments, etc). Please! please! Amazon tell Oscar Araujo that if he comes out with a special edition I will purchase it in advance as I did this one.

Is an epic soundtrack. Very well produced and goes well with the game. Everything I hoped it would be when I heard it was being released.
