One of my favorite songs from Budokai Tenkaichi 2. The keyboard melodies are nice and airy, the drums are catchy, and the "voice" gives the song a good oriental feel. It's a unique sounding song in a good way.

The start sounds very posh and formal, but then when the real song kicks in it can really catch you by surprise. I like the guitar a lot, it reminds me of Solid State Scouter.

Sounds like Frankenstien or some old school horror film.

I'm sure you didn't mean to post a link to a version of the song with crude lyrics in it, so I found a different link with only the instrumentals in it:

What are you talking about? All I did was post a High Quality Rip of the West City Theme from Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury. Certainly never meant to post a Low Quality version like you did.

[spoiler]In all seriousness though, as you can probably tell, the version I linked to was entirely intentional.

Honestly, I kinda find it funny that from that, judging from your response, it seems to me that not a whole lot of people here (if any really, I'm not sure) have heard of the SiIvagunner channel and its "High Quality Rips". Welp, there's always a first for everything.[/spoiler]

Anyway, on to my opinion:

Eh, I have mixed feelings on this one. On the one hand, I do like the dark and foreboding vibe from it. But on the other hand, the overall instrumentation of the track just kinda rubs me the wrong way for some reason, not sure why though...

Next up, a Faulconer Productions track I actually do enjoy: GOHAN APPROACHES

Ooh, I actually like this one. I can't seem to remember when it was used, but it's pretty chilling and relaxing. I don't like how it ended though, seems like a segway to a completely different track rather than a satisfying conclusion.

My favorite theme from Super. You can play that anywhere and feel genuine tension.

"Dragon Ball once became a thing of the past to me, but after that, I got angry about the live action movie, re-wrote an entire movie script, and now I'm complaining about the quality of the new TV anime. It seems Dragon Ball has grown on me so much that I can't leave it alone." - Akira Toriyama on Dragon Ball Super

One of my favorite suspenseful themes in the whole series, Sumitomo really nailed it here, the melody is simple, but very addictive, it gives a really dark misterious atmosphere when it plays..

Oh, I know very well what this sounds like without having to use the link. The vocalizing is much better than the movie version (although I like them both). The in-between is cool too, but it drags out just a little too far IMO. The vocals coming back at the end is amazing, though. Overall, one of my favorites.

That choir is (no pun intended) godly. Love how they played it in 56 when Black transformed.

I love the drums in that song. It's so mysterious and suspenseful and fitting for Piccolo. I think it was first introduced in the Saiyan arc right?

Nice build-up from the calm intro to the energetic main portion of the song. There's also a feeling of tension in the song, which fits the scene the song was used in.

A sneaky and mischievous tone. Like someone is planning or thinking about something they shouldn't. At the same time though, it's humorous and light hearted. Basically a sum up of Blooma in her early days.

The singer's voice is nice, and the cover of the instrumental part isn't bad. Obviously not as good as the original, but not bad nonetheless.

Since you shared a German Dragon Ball opening, I'll share my favorite German Dragon Ball opening...

It's "DAN DAN Kokoro," so it's not terrible, but the voices in this adaptation overpower the instrumentals a little. While I don't know German, it sounds like they've also changed the lyrics to more heavily reference the actual series, which I'm not a huge fan of.

Leaving this Sumitomo track here. (Personally I really dig its old-school Dragon Ball video-game vibe.)

It sort of fits Shenron, but I think they could've used a better track for it. Also a teensy bit too repetitive for my taste, but overall I'd say a decent track.

This f*cking track right there is SO FREAKING GOOD, one of my favorite battle themes of dragon ball ever, you can feel the intensity, the guitars are just freaking amazing, the percussion is relentless, and at 1:22 you can just feel that kamehameha thrown at frieza in his fight with base goku.

Pretty good. Reminds me of SSJ God's theme. If this theme wasn't composed for a Final Genkidama against Black, then I don't know for what else it could have been composed.

All right, but Kikuchi's action themes aren't great. Just a tad too calm for that battle. Overall, it's fine.

It definetely gives some vibes of "destruction incoming" I just wish the chorus at the end were longer.

Honestly, I don't think it can be said enough how awesome Dan Dan is as a theme. As a series, my feelings on GT are anywhere from lukewarm to iffy, but this song instantly brings incredibly fond feelings to me.
As far as this "Female" version, it more or less seems like just a up-pitched recording, not changing much. So the same emotions tied to the song still apply, just at a slightly higher pitch, lol.

I ain't even gonna lie, I actually kinda like this track.
It's got a soft melody and I actually like the sound of the synth in this track. It kinda reminds me of 80s music. It sounds unfinished but I see the potential. Layer some more sounds on top of this one and I could see a good piece of music here.
