- "Haunting!" (by Mormaeglin, 23 Mar 2005) [9/10]
At last! a complete soundtrack from a Ravenloft!, excellent, climatic songs which perfectly shows us a dark, haunting atmosphere of Ravenloft. This one is great especialy if You are playing a pen&paper D&D Ravenloft. This one played in a background gave me creeps! absolute must for download!
- "really nice" (by iris, 7 May 2005) [7/10]
Some sequences are really wonderful, some are quite nice for panoramatic music, but not very enjoyable for listening only.
- "Spooky, atmospheric" (by Gila-Man, 1 Jul 2005) [9/10]
It's just the right ambiance for a seance of nonchalance.
- "One of the great MIDI scores in game history certainly? YES!!!!!!" (by Nagelfar, 15 Nov 2006) [10/10]
I've been looking for the themes to Ravenloft Strahd's Possession for years!!! James C. McMenamy & Mason Fisher are MIDI gods, up there with or surpassing Bob Prince. I thought I would never come across this ever. Thanks, This is one of my new favorite websites!
- "Well done!" (by Silas, 4 Feb 2008) [9/10]
I enjoyed the music to this game, it was one of the things that helped generate the oppressive/fearful atmosphere of the game.
However, I was a bit annoyed with the battle music tacked on to the end of each melody, so I downloaded an editor and chopped it.
- "I love this music! But not the endings..." (by Polliechrome, 16 Dec 2013) [9/10]
Amazing variety, depth and mystery to this music. However I agree with Silas the jarring battle themes tacked to the end of such lovely music is unfortunate. I am looking for a music editor program now too.

Facts / description
Info from Mormaeglin:
This zip file contains two folders, i decided to do this way because, after ripping midis from the game i have found that they are in two versions so i included them both. The only Diffrence between them is a type of samples included in songs. Some people may find second version more enjoyable.
