If I had the inclination and class to comprehend the subtleties of smooth jazz, this soundtrack would probably be labelled something more appropriate than “nice car song” in my own library.
Featuring a larger diversity of artists and more collaboration between different musical backgrounds than in previous soundtracks, Gran Turismo 5 is what I term to be objectively perfect. In a genre of gaming where mechanics remain relatively similar, it is the refinement of a core experience that creates uniqueness and distinction. For Gran Turismo it is a perfection and professionalism that is communicated through the excellence and precision of their soundtrack. If the word streamlined had a sound, this would be it.
No Lyrics. Perfect for studying.
