Go Get Team 0011! is. Because that's the 777th Soundtrack of the Week, music by Takeo Yamashita.

This is an amazing score. There's a lot of electric guitar and percussion and organ and a whirlwind of different styles and moods.

Centering it most of the time is the worldess vocalizing of Toshio Oida. There's also whistling, accordion and occasional bursts of old-timey jazz with banjo and clarinet.

The best parts are the weird rock/jazz/funk/blues/avantgarde/horror movie cues, often presented as mini-suites.

Some of this is really beautiful, some really strange, most of it absolutely compelling listening.
