Why is the music in GT 5 so bad?

    I am not talking about the menu music which I do not mind, but the racing music. Who would pick out such a bad soundtrack? Most of it sounds like strange Japanese techno. The most annoying song has little kids singing over a bass line and piano, which really aggrivates me when I hear it. I had to put my own music in the game because I got so sick of hearing the soundtrack. The only song I didn't really mind was by the Scorpions. Anyone else agree?

    I love it, and most of the electronic music is not from japan.

    You could just have filtered out the electronic music in the options anyway, and just listened to the rock stuff.

    Erm... no. Loads of people hated Baby, I loved it, but that seemed the only divisive song on the whole game.

    GT5 menu music was very good to listen to and they had some good tracks so you could listen to them over and over again . :tup:

    Gran Turismo soundtracks are outstandingly unremarkable.

    A good racing game gives me a handful of new tracks in my collection.

    There are only two tracks in GT history that I really like and I knew of both of them beforehand.

    Don't get me started on that Daiko Kaisho rubbish.

    I used to not like the race music in GT5 but now I don't mind it. The menu music is amazing (as always in the GT series)

    idk it was cute

    but i guess if you mainly listen to 80s rock or metal gt5's music is not gonna be your cup of tea

    Because you don't have the same taste as the music producer.

    Heck, I didn't even notice that while playing GT5.....'cuz I used my own music off HDD. ;)
    BTW, that song with kids singing? Mercedes is using it in the new c-class ads.

    It's not the same song. GT5 has the Breakbot remix of the Pnau song, that is Faul and Wad-Ad's remix of the Pnau song.

    I think GT5 has pretty good music (better than GT6). But nothing beats GT3's soundtrack.

    Is it weird to get the nostalgia feeling when i'm playing GT5 and hear the menu, race and so on... of music?

    Anyway i think that the soundtrack is good IMO.

    It's "baby, I don't know".

    I don't know why the song gets so much hate. Pnau are fantastic, the kids do a great job, and Breakbot somehow made it even more cheerful.

    The song itself isn't too bad, in my opinion. But the problem is putting it in the pre-race menu of a racing game which is what I think people find odd.

    Totally agree. It's mostly mild jazz but a few tunes stick with you and remind you of when you first played the game 5 years ago or so.

    I hope it's not the engine sounds found in the game though. Aside from the ones coming from some specific cars here, engine sounds in GT5 are, you know, absolute crap. :lol:

    I found surround sound speaker system makes a big improvement in the Engine sounds, and when the Engine sound is from the TV only well that is a another sound.
