1.)...Because nothing beats the return of L'arc! A very catchy and different song than their usual tunes.
2.) ...Rewrite has a problem. Most of the song is quite (if you heard the full version) so its composition isn't very good (like Haruka Kanata).
3.) ...This song belongs to the bottom tier. It's good, but it's not as catchy as the other songs.
4.) ...The worst probably, because it gets annoying pretty fast after a while.
1. I personally didn't like 'Ready Steady Go' that much. I think the main parts that didn't really appeal to me were the very repetitive background music and the vocals. But, then again I'm more of a J-pop fan than a J-rock fan...
2. I'm guessing that you meant to say that 'Rewrite' doesn't have a lot of singing, and has a bunch of poorly composed instrumental in the middle... I agree that I was a little disappointed with not having more lyrics, but Rewrite kind of wouldn't be as good without all the instrumental in the middle, and you can't deny the fact that it is
very catchy (and probably the best FMA opening in terms of animation)...
3. I personally like 'Undo' a lot, although it originally seemed much more anime-ish to me than the other openings. It's a great song once it grows on you. I liked the contrast in the opening animation. I guess the parts that aren't the chorus might seem a little less catchy than the other opening songs...
4. Eh...I disagree. I'm still listening to 'Melissa' pretty often after 3+ months... I think this opening kind of suffered because the animation was kind of plain compared to stuff like 'Ready Steady Go.' (Well, I'm a big fan of Porno Graffitti, so my opinion's probably biased...)
Also, this is pretty random, but I was looking through CDs in the "International Music" section in Borders yesterday, and they had these CDs that had songs from various artists/bands in Japan. Volume 3 (Or 4? I forgot which one...) had "Ready Steady Go" on it... It was just kind of interesting...(I guess L'Arc en Ciel is going to be pretty populat in the US soon too?)
