11. Dai Sentai Goggle VDespite this being my fave nostalgia Sentai ever, I realize that this is where they pick up the tempo and intensity of the song, despite being considered a 'disco' song. The Sun Vulcan song is catchy, but Goggle V managed to be both catchy and fast-paced in the same time, while still adhering to the limits. This will be perfected later in Dynaman, so it's on the 11th spot.
10. Kaizoku Sentai GokaigerNew song and it's already cool, it does convey liveliness and free spirit that the Gokaiger embodies. I don't find myself bored with the tunes like "Let's Go, Let's Go-kaiger!", in fact I find it... inspiring to move forward. Awesome.
9. Juken Sentai GekirangerIt opens with some Chinese instrument, until it explodes with great fast pace. The repetitive 'Geki! Geki!' eventually catch on, as in imagining you punching while it's said. But I guess it is pretty spot-on for the characteristic of Jan, who tends to make up words from his head...
8. Kagaku Sentai DynamanThis is what I call an improvement over Goggle V's song. Rather than disco, we get more rocking tunes and it's fast-paced and great. In regards, I also find it funny that the song lyrics, if we take it too literally, sounds a bit hilarious. It's as if the singer is saying "DIE DIE DIE DIE DYNAMAN". So... the singer wants the Dynaman dead?
*Ba Dum Tsh!*
Well to be honest, it can also be spelled as "DAI DAI DAI DAI DAINAMAN", in which Dai = Great. So yeah. Still the previous one just sound hilarious, but since it's also catchy, it's number 8.
7. Kousoku Sentai TurborangerThis breezily catchy song accompanies the high school road of the Turborangers. Uncovering mysteries to the world, and kicking Bouma ass. I like the song, but when turned to instrument, this gets really kickass. Turborangers' instruments, IMO, are one of my personal faves.
6. Choujuu Sentai LivemanWell many people agree this is one of the more kickass Sentai songs and I have to agree. It has explosiveness, youth, fire (err...) and the feel of drama in spite of that. I dunno, I just feel that way. Just too bad that Daisuke Shima's singing tune is only limited to the opening, not with Yuusuke actually singing.
5. Samurai Sentai ShinkengerWell what can I say? Psychic Lover kicks ass. This song combines a lot from Japanese instruments and rocking pieces that makes Samurai stuffs epic. Starting from the "Chan-chan-bara" to the actual lyrics itself, it is a real fast pace and awesome piece.
4. Choujin Sentai JetmanThis is the last opening of Sentai to be ever sung by the legendary Hironobu Kageyama of the JAM Project. While it wasn't as rocking/epic as the further entry below, it still has the catchy and the fast pace typical to Hironobu Kageyama, and still managed to be epic. "Jetto, Jetto, Jettoman!" Catchy as hell.
3. Mirai Sentai TimerangerYes, the one hailed as the most fave opening ever mostly, is just at 3rd place. It's a real kickass piece, I know. And has a lot of epic tunes here. But... well, everyone's different. I love the song and female vocal, but thus far, I have other faves.
2. Hikari Sentai MaskmanAah yes, I think this is the most epic, kickass, rocking piece Hironobu Kageyama did to Sentai. Punctuated in style of fighting, the electric guitar of this piece are conveyed to be really epic style you won't even believe. Overall, for old school Sentai music, this is probably my fave. But still on number 2. Which one is the number one?
1. Tokusou Sentai DekarangerOh yeah, now we're talking. This is a real epic, fast paced, rocking song that also combines the Engrish in Dekaranger in a good way. After the police siren went off, the epic electric guitar riffs commence and accompanied with the lyrics, it stays on top all the way. When this becomes an instrument, the jazz trumpet also sounds good. This beats out every one of the Sentai songs, IMO, and I really never get tired of listening of this over and over. Bravo, Psychic Lover. Bravo.
Yep, that's all from me. I hope you have a good read. And don't lambast me, though. Everyone is entitled to their opinions.
