Well, this is a shame.
You'd think that a CD rendition of Altered Beast would feature red book music; but as it turns out, the chip tunes perform double duty. And those tunes certainly sound great and all, but it would've been awfully cool to hear AB's compositions treated with vintage PCE CD instrumentation. Sadly, we'll never be granted that opportunity; but we do get "explosive" sound effects for the occasions when we bust up the odd rock or gravestone. The disc also delivers voices and, during the beast transformation scenes, a variety of howls and roars.
