A couple of the creative liberties they took with the remake were quite strange to me as well, but the music definitely wasn't one of them. My biggest gripe is the new Flamelurker design, he looks like a giant gorilla on fire now. That being said, I feel like most of the changes were for the better! So I'm quite content with how it turned out. Hopefully it doesn't detract too much from your experience, because it's still quite a fantastic gem and well worth your time.
