Drums, drums and more drums! The soundtrack for the opening clashes between the clowns and Kaneda's gang is pretty awesome with the thundering bass of all those drums. Plus I just like the "Kaneda! Tetsuo!" vocals.
Another one of those songs that is completely stuck in my head. Whenever I rent these I pay the opening theme over and over to the detriment of my neighbors I'm sure. Makes excellent use of synths, violins, vocal tweaks and has excellent singing.
One of the rare soundtracks that is instrumental. Moves fast, makes good use of Asian instruments. The visuals and music work well to introduce the characters. I used to play this theme ad nauseum back in my Laserdisc days.
I was a little sad when they changed the theme from season one to 2. Season 1's theme was another one of these pop themes that I could play over and over. Season 2's theme is starting to get stuck in my head too though, with it's techno riffs.
