I listen to Massive B Soundsystem and The Classics, The Classics has some excellent hip hop in it, and Massive B has got the Rasta horn sounds and stuff I'm used to, I listen to Jungle, Drum and Bass and Dubstep.

I listen to Fusion FM occasionally.

soundtrack good... one major gripe

I think the soundtrack really fits the mood of the game, and thats what R* was going for. I have one major gripe with it, and R* I hope you are trolling these boards... Why on earth is the Reggae station all Bob Marley? Previous GTAs have had such awesome selections of dub and reggae, being a huge dub/reggae fan I feel very slighted. WHY? I have so many fond memories of crusing around causing mayhem listening to Scientist Rids The World Of The Curse of the Vampires... and its not like it doesn't fit the mood and tone of the game.

I think it goes well with the theme of the city. It wont obviously go as well as VC or SA because they can't pin point the classic of that era etc.

Primo's Classics channel could have been so much better, it sounds rushed and rubbish quality. But still its cool.

My favorite channels are Soundsystem B, Tough gong, Vibe. Some nice stuff on there, i dont really like a WHOLE channels stuff like the previous games though.

Ive noticed Beat does repeat some tracks, specially Swizz Beatz. I think its just an error.

I like electrochoc. However, i find i literally will just listen to whatever is on when i'm in the car. I don't really tend to change to any particular station. I think they're all good and fit in really well.

Aye, Rockstar have always done, there are a few songs on the LCS and VCS soundtracks that also have connections with each other and San Andreas.

Playboy X said that he used to be a major gangsta in 1992 when he was out of jail, GTA SA was in 1993
and it was faster than the 1977 version.
San Andreas WAS set in 1992

The soundtrack is somewhat dry. I understand that is favours NYC heavy hiphop type genre but none of the songs really have hooks and have that, I need to mash some face now appeal

Am I the only one who notices that the radio stations seem MUCH shorter? I always hear the same interviews on integrity, and songs and interviews on other stations

That's the thing I don't like with the Dynamic engine, it gets confused easily and ends up repeating a lot of songs when there's actually a lot more available. For example, when playing pool, Massive B Soundsystem in the background only cycles through like 4 songs!

It has not the best soundtrack of the gta series, but it keeps a low profile with lots of variety, i have to go with the talk stations, they never dissapoint me, even with that childish humor and LRR has some good songs.

It's got an amazing soundtrack, i just wish they would've added more songs to the radio stations... but Radio Broker, LRR, and Electro Choc are in my opinion the best radio stations on the game.

Fusion and The Journey are great mood setters for driving around the city. They happen to be my favorites.

The radio stations are alright, they do fit in good with the city. Nice one for pointing that out about the connection with the SA song, Ash. Vice City and San Andreas had much better radio stations though imo.

The soundtrack supervisor stated in interviews before the game was released that the songs chosen had to suit the real modern NY radio waves authentically. They had a shortlist of over 700 songs and got it down to like 220 or so in the final cut. I didn't like the radio stations when I first played but you REALLY get into some stations some real hidden gems in some of the stations at first I only listened to Liberty Rock Radio and Radio Broker but eventually I branched into Electro Choc (I hate electro music but this really got me into a whole new genre of music, Justice, Sebastian, etc), Vladivostok (even though you don't understand it its got some cracking music), K109 (filled in my Flashback/Flash FM craving with some decent disco music).

Overall you just need to branch out and listen to everything.

And I've noticed also Electro Choc always starts at the exact same point when you flick onto it. Kind of annoying. Beat 103 also does it too.
