Of the shorter songs, my favorite is Dolls' Polyphony with it's acapella rhythm spliced with a bit of keyboard. From the longer options, Tetsuo and Shohmyoh rank very high.
I often think that it's one of the greatest missed opportunities in cinema that no other filmmaker ever enlisted them to create a soundtrack. Unless Shoji Yamashiro just doesn't feel like doing another one. Either way, it's immensely unfortunate.
