Holy crap, thr background music after you steal the car is so lit.

This music should have a station of its own in the radio.

Need more music with bass.

Props to Rockstar.

I have to admit... I actually can't stand the background music that plays during most of the new activities. I can tell someone put effort into it, but for whatever reason it just feels too omnipresent and just seems to get on my nerves, even though I can't really explain why.

Indeed the background music is very nice, i found myself circling my warehouse unintentionally just to hear how the next bit rolls out ^^

 

There's also one that resembles the pokemon lavender town suicide song :D

Yooo I was gonna make a topic about this but I completely forgot. The new background music is dope. The ones with heavy bass and trap influences are the best.

Can`t stand it, hate how it just overshadows the glorious engine sounds of my cars and the environment. I also find it  annoying, especially when its on repeat with each warehouse delivery.

It's a little cheesy but I love the music that plays during the special vehicle missions, it sounds like trap music. Lots of 'EY's, gun cocking sound effects, the night vision 'pweeeee' activation noise. It's really good.

I don't really like the "pew pew pew peeeeeew" swag horn that plays sometimes

Parts of the new music sounds good, but I kinda makes me think of the music people would put in a cheap "gangster" flashgame

God yeah, I usually have my music disabled anyway but every time an update rolls around I re-enable it to hear the new mission music. The Biker Contract music

was so grating I disabled it within an hour of the update releasing.

I don't like it, did a mission earlier today and I might do some now that I'm home. So maybe it was only the one song I'm not going to like but it Makes me think rockstar is watching too many sh*tty youtube videos.

i came looking for this exact thread..

Music is amazing, so intense. I was doing a party crasher mission, where you sneak around and kill a guard for a key, the music started up and a chill went down my back. I felt like I was in a movie. I also had the biggest smile on my face as I escaped down the street in the stolen x80, movie soundtrack in the background.

The new music real shows the effort r* is starting to make again

It's ok until you've played a few hours then you're back to Radio LoSantos crashing trying to hurry up and find the station.

Thanks for the tip, I've been playing GTA:O without any kind of music since 2014.

I like the heavy bases in some of the tracks, however, as a music producer myself, a few cymbals and claps repeatedly playing gets annoying.

I'm willing to bet that those who can't stand it at all never really liked trap/dubstep music in the first place.

True in my case. Can't stand this genre.

Turned music off because I've heard every radio stations hundreds of times by now, which also loses background music.

 

Self Radio pls :/

The new background music is really good.  The song the DJ is playing at the one house party where you have to steal the keys is jumping.

I don't have any problem with trap music in general, but it just sounds very out of place in an update like this. It overshadows the engine sound of the vehicles and makes it hard to appreciate the effort Rockstar's put into them (as APB said). I can excuse it because it's clearly an update inspired by the new Fast & Furious movies, so at least it sorta makes sense in that regard. To be honest, I was expecting Rockstar to come out with some more of that classic type of score that they used for V. Instead of that we got some goon from Soundcloud that they paid $3 to make the soundtrack. It's well made but very obnoxious.

Oof, couldn't disagree more. Bunch of embarassingly affected traphouse airhorn garbage. The old stuff was bland and ignorable but this new batch is just irritating. I mute background music in most games and I reckon that time has come for GTAO...

Nice choonage but not entirely appropriate for these types of missions. ​This is the only acceptable soundtrack for a car chase.

I hate the ambient music in this update, it sounds like Tetris with bass. When I turn the radio off I want to hear the damn car.

To those who live new background tracks, congratulations on being right, this music rocks.

To those who don't, check your hearing aid batteries, HA!

To those who feel it overtakes the engine sounds...can't you adjust that in the settings? I haven't tried since I like the music over the vroom vroom of the engine, but I would assume it can be turned down.
