As much as I love Scarface the soundtrack really is hot trash. So why go with the OST? Did they really devote an entire radio station just to hint at the setting for the next game?

Whatever reason they had for creating that abomination of an in game radio station cant have been good enough.

They likely just didn't have the resources yet to license a lot of big-name music at the time of development - GTA3 was the smash-hit that made them a household name, after all. That's probably also why the Jah Radio playlist all comes from the same obscure Scientist album.

 

I'm a bit surprised so many like MSX FM, I always found it to be pretty annoying. My favorite would be a close call between Chatterbox and Rise FM.

Even when the game came out I remember finding flashback really grating and out of place. Like why is it there? The vibe couldnt be any further from the world you explore. Sure an 80s station in 2001 isnt that strange, but if you're going to do that maybe pick some good music?

I associate those songs with GTA 3 more than with Scarface lol. In a way I agree but I'm so used to that radio station that the songs don't really seem out of place for me.

 

I don't think that I have a least favorite station. Even the opera/classical station is pretty decent but Vice City has to have the best soundtrack in the entire series. At least I'm pretty sure of that though SA and VCS are up there as well.

There are at least a couple of good songs on the tracklist I think. Maybe the MC ruins it for some people. The talk stations were better in VC (or even best though I can't remember IV's and V's too well) but I didn't even get a chance to properly listen to them in my recent 100% run because the game is kinda short surprisingly enough and the soundtrack is so vast (can't quite listen to the whole thing in one playthrough).

MSX just has a dark and gritty vibe for me that suits the game perfectly. 

FWIW I modded mine and replaced it with a version without the DJ.

that's exacly how I feel about it, I guess 2000s electronics just match the urban setting. because of this rise fm was pretty cool too

 

I never listen to k-jah, not my vibe

I wouldn't say I hate Double Clef, but listening to opera feels boring after listening other stations like Head and Lips.
