The Godzilla roar and JP T-Rex roar are as heart-stopping as they are because of that high note in the middle of each when, no matter what you're listening on, they briefly sound like they're about to blow out your speakers.

It's a built-in version of that Brian Eno quote: 

"So much modern art is the sound of things going out of control, of a medium pushing to its limits and breaking apart. The distorted guitar sound is the sound of something too loud for the medium supposed to carry it. The blues singer with the cracked voice is the sound of an emotional cry too powerful for the throat that releases it. The excitement of grainy film, of bleached-out black and white, is the excitement of witnessing events too momentous for the medium assigned to record them."
