This is the third CD of the GTA Station Emotion 98.3 presented by fernando Martinez. He has made an appearance in previous GTA games specifically, GTA III where he co presented a show on Chatterbox 109. His show was all about love and helping people's marriage. He is passionate about love and as he himself claims, is a sexual predator. On this CD he comes back with the same love saviour attitude, and talks a lot about how his music helps you get through tough times in love, thats mentioned straight away on the first track, just to let you know what you're listening to.
The music is very passionate love music, lyrics about break ups and what not, things like Africa by Toto, and this soundtrack CD also includes the opening scene of GTA Vice City with Ken rosenburg, Mr Mister, broken wings. The quality is slightly off on this CD but for a 2002 PS2 game you cant really complain. Guitars arent as sharp and cymbal crashes are a little dull and lifeless.
The game was set in the 1980's so all the music, advertisements and commentary by Fernando had to sound 80's and again (like the sound quality) it does. There is not a single track out of place, and even the advertisements talk about 80's products while using a synthesizer for the jingles. Although fernando refers to a "CD" in the halftime speech. Hmm... CD's in the early 80's?
At the half time interval on this CD fernando talks for 27 seconds about feeling better after listening to the first half of the CD and how he will need to listen to it after to relax. This is just reiterating the fact that the CD is designed to make you feel better when love gets you down, and quite rightly so, that's what emotion is all about. Fernando hasn't changed and doesn't sound like he's reading a script or anything, it works out perfectly.
Ok so for the main reason you probably bought this soundtrack CD, those hilarious R* adverts that are gimmicks of real life ones. You get knife after dark which talks humorously about a serial killer movie, which is rated R for (word not appropriate) the next ones about pet stuffers where you taxidermy your dog in your own freezer. Wierd I know but that's R* for you!
