No, not the damn radio. 

 

The actual ambient tracks are absolutely beautiful. I haven't even played the game and I'm just sitting here listening to all the tracks. This is most likely the reason Rockstar made all the radio stations (reportedly) sh*t. They wanted us to hear this ambient music instead.

 

  

 

Just listen to that beautiful Lost and Damned theme tribute starting at the 2:00 mark. I got the biggest grin on my face when that started.

 

  

 

This track. Oh man, this track. Just so uprising and triumphant sounding with that sax. 

 

I really hope this newly started trend of having actual tracks in GTA games (Besides the main themes) sticks. I want GTA 6 and onwards to have great, fitting tracks such as these.

The only ambient music I like from the game is the stuff that plays when you're parachuting, everthing else is mediocre.
And I don't understand why you and everyone else claims the radio is sh*t... Oh wait, yes I do: "cuz it don't got enuff biggie and 2pac homeboy"

"Give this man a raise."

 

You do realize that the score is composed collaboratively by Tangerine Dream, Woody Jackson, Alchemist and Oh No.

 

Those guys, under-appreciated? Really?

This is most likely the reason Rockstar made all the radio stations (REPORTEDLY) sh*t.

 

I have never claimed it was sh*t on my own, as I have never heard the entirety of it. I only went off of all the topics bitching and moaning about it. 

 

And no, actually. I did not realize this, (Stobe). Because, being the man of assumption that I am, I assumed an individual composer was hired. I assumed wrong. 

 

I just love how bursting with negativity the first two replies were. So serious and tense. A great start, truly.

I dig the soundtrack, that parachuting theme is gorgeous and really gets stuck in my head after a while. The wanted level theme is great too...Also special mention to Trevor's rampage music, including the clown massacre that sounds awfully familiar in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. Great stuff.

I didn't mean to sound too harsh, but the guys who did the score are mentioned right in the opening sequence and also they had big Rolling Stone articles about it before launch. I just find it a bit odd that you've completely missed those.

It's unfortunate, but I was not informed.Simply because, as I said, I do not own the game and I have not watched an actual full playthrough or walkthrough displaying the credits in either the intro or ending. 

 

I was originally going to look up who did the rest (I know the actual intro song was by Oh No, but I was not aware of anything else they composed, If anything.) but being that I inteded this to be a more positive topic without any serious intent behind it, I wasn't really going to bother researching.

For me, the score is one of the "breakout stars" of the game. It's fantastic.

Bullsh*t. The radio selection is great. The rock station and classic hip hop stations are awesome, even some of the other stations have some really nice tracks. Huge step up from IV.

Nice generalization blockhead! Maybe your narrow-minded ass(which is your head) fails to realize that some people might not have found music they like within GTAV's radio tracks? See not everyone likes the same kind of music, there is no right or wrong in music, you listen to what you like because you like it without any other reason.
