What does everyone think of the GTA 2 soundtrack? I personally think it's one of the best soundtracks in the GTA series along with III, Vice City and San Andreas as well as IV

I will always think GTA 2's soundtrack to be the best one in the series. Yes, the other GTA game soundtracks are impressive, but to me, they just don't compare to 2.

In my opinion, one of the best soundtracks ever - not just in the entire GTA series. This is one of those games where I could listen to it's soundtrack for hours and hours on end. And out of all top-down GTA games, GTA2 has the best soundtrack. I wish they carried this over in later games, not just III, some tracks in Vice City & Liberty City Stories.

GTA 2 was the best soundtrack due to being mostly developed in house with only a few songs that were licensed :p

Indeed. I think some of the best GTA soundtracks are the ones where they are specifically written for the game i:e III, LCS had many songs written for the game and GTA V even had some too with "Sleepwalking" being the most well known to me. 

IV had a few and while it was nice to the top 80's and 90's hits in VC, SA, and VCS, Rockstar do a good job of making original soundtracks really enjoyable...something not always possible with media in my opinion.

The game had some radio stations which were damn funny, especially KGBH. The music, well.. not so good.

I'd say the HipHop section was on point!

The radio stations were, and still are the most believable of any GTA game, imo

 

Excessive and obnoxious attention grabbing commercials, fast-paced nature, superb mixing and the overall flow of the stations is extremely accurate and impressive. Seriously, give them a listen sometime.

 

Head Radio

Lithium FM

Funami FM

 

The music, however? Not amazing, but extremely memorable. Rockstar were clearly coming to grips with the whole in-house music production thing, and I believe they perfected it in GTA 3. This isn't to say that there aren't some great tracks in GTA 2, however!

 

The Diner <- 50s rockabilly inspired track

God Bless All The Universe <- Preachy 'Christian' 90s pop track. Massive guilty pleasure of mine

The One - <- Superb breakbeat track

Love This Feeling <- Main menu track. Super chill!

 

And that's only to name a few!
