If you ask me, I like them Very powerful, but not cheesy style.
Thanks for the links. CHEMISTRY's stuff does sound pretty "hip-hop"ish... I was looking through some of their music on Youtube and wasn't a fan, but I'm still looking forward to the 4th intro. SCANDAL's music isn't bad, should make a good ending.
Next time, please try to look around for the thread that is related to your question, and try to post your question on that thread.
Sorry for taking so long to reply to this, and for posting in the wrong place ^^;. Thanks for the info Tombow, it really helped been bopping along (turn of phrase. nobody bops along any more... obviously <.<;) to Goldentime Lover for the better part of a fortnight now

I have to admit the news that we'd be getting the fourth opening so soon has taken me a little bit by surprise. I'd kinda figured out in my head where abouts they'd put the openings and so far I'd been right on the money so this surprises me. I think that's just my pride being hurt there so is no biggie.
I will be sad to see Golden Time Lover go, as it's definately become my favourite of the songs so far, mostly because it manages to sound both triumphant and desperate at the same time, which suited FMA nicely.
However the opening animation as of episode 36, is pretty much out of date, with it teasing nothing. Compared to opening 1 (which STILL has stuff in it that hasn't been shown) and opening 2 (best for animation so far) it was a bit lackluster and bit of a slap in the face to everyone who loved volume 15. Seriously why have so much of volume 15 related stuff in the opening when that consisted of ONE episode.
Anyway I'm looking forward to what the new songs and animations have to offer. Considering we are in my favourite parts of the Manga, I'm expecting awesomeness. I also wanna make some predictions, don't highlight if you're not up to date on the manga:
- Chimera should almost definately be featured in some way - I'm expecting to see alot of footage regarding Hohenheim's past as well - As well as some shot involving Greed and Ling and their termoil - MOTHER FUDGING PRIDE, COME ON!! That's the one thing that makes me eager for a new opening, the chance to see Pride being all kinds of badass in the opening, please dont rob me of that. - Oh and Ed lifting his arm towards the sky or something else. As well a shot of him looking angsty and windswept.
Where I predicted this new opening to appear was after the Promised Day is revealed and there's a small time skip, but now it seems more likely to be coming around the time Olivier joins high command and Hohenheim's past is revealed.

Golden time lover is my favorite opening, with Again (and Melissa) close behind. All three of them have this sort of nostalgia factor, but I think Golden time lover's a little darker. Plus, there's a ton of brotherliness, which is always good unless contaminated by Rule 34.
My favorite ending is still Uso. I don't know why, but those crayon scribbles and kid Ed and Al at the end always make me feel sad. I hated Let It Out until episode 22 (and 26!) came by.
Annnyyywwaaays, looking forward to the new OP! Pride better be in there and he better be as creepy as hell.

I like Golden Time Lover, but I am behind on FMA Brotherhood, so I have not watched the opening in a while. I don't like the third ending. I usually end up skipping over the ending theme. But I like listening to new opening and endings because it gives me the chance to hear new bands.

OH. MY. AMAZING! I love this song. It goes pretty well with what's up next. And thanks for posting. Now I can't wait to see the new opening and hear the ending song (since I have my doubts - Scandal and FMA just don't get along for me).
EDIT: And wow, that was fast. Someone has already transcripted and translated the lyrics, you can find them here. The lyrics fits the song soooo well! I love it.
