Jet Set Radio Soundtrack



It's not always easy for the team at the DCJY to come up with news for a console that's been 'resting' for the last seven years. My own Dreamcast 'news' since the completion of Gut's Rage has stagnated somewhat. I'm still playing Jet Set Radio, but have become somewhat stuck on the mission of Coin and Cube, finding it hard to wall ride high enough to tag the higher grafitti near the skate park and constantly running out of time or being beaten to a pulp!

Still, I have been lucky enough to obtain the soundtrack to both Jet Set Radio and Jet Set Radio Future direct from Japan for under a tenner. This brings my game soundtrack CD collection to three titles. I've got the two titles above plus the soundtrack of Space Channel 5 (which includes remixes of all the tracks you hear in the game.) Now if I could only find a sound track for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, I'd die a happy man...

I would love a copy of the Jet Grind Radio soundtrack... it has to be my favorite game music ever!

Nice one, I ought to get into collecting OST's myself, as I have a unhealthy habit of listening to video game music possibly even more than "normal" music. I do own one, though. The music CD that came with that Sonic Adventure 2 10th Anniversary box set, which contains music from Sonic games through the ages, which is nice. You can't beat a bit of the old Super Sonic Racing and Open your Heart.

I've been constantly listening to the Jet Set soundtrack on YouTube lately. Love Up-Set Attack, Humming the Bassline, Super Brothers etc.

I'll have to track down an original copy soon.

I've been stuck at that same damn Cube/Coin stage forever. I pop JGR in every now and then spend the entire alloted 6 minutes just attempting that wall ride: it may be 1 of those welcome-to-your-skill-ceiling moments, for me, at least.

Same here Nick!

I like one of the raps from Sonic Adventure Gagaman(n), do you know what the title of that track might be?

Joshua, if you get in touch and let me know where to send one, I'll burn you a copy.

d.d. tinzeroes, I think you and I are in exactly the same place... I think I reached my ceiling too... LOL!

The JSR soundtrack is probably one of my favourite game OST ever, and JSRF's was pretty awesome too, which is something remarkable since they couldn't be more different from what I usually listen too (heavy metal). I'm not a big fan of collecting game soundtracks, and when I do it's usually more epic, orchestral stuff, like Morrowing or Warcraft, but JSR's soundtrack is just awesome.

Looks like that level got us all stuck! Yup, I was never able to beat it either because of, guess what, the higher wall graffiti. Little bastards...

Father, if you want the THPS 2 soundtrack and don't mind settling for MP3's instead of the actual cd, I can get you that. Just send me an email.

Why thank you Nebacha, I'll get to it!

Space Channel 5, eh?

Here's my SC5 collection, which includes a pile of the not-very-well-known Tommy Boy CDs and 12" record.

Fantastic SC5 collection there Paperghost, all it's missing is the Ulala action figures and statue. =)

fatherkrishna said...

Wow! Paperghost! That is a fabulous collection! *FK turns a rather familiar shade of envious green...*

This may be a little late (lol) but I know how to get the high ones in that stage (I did more than once just now). Biggest mistake everyone makes (I think) is trying to grind the little border down the wall and trying to get up from that point. WRONG! Just take a distance, make some speed by pressing the R-trigger, and double jump the wall just at the last moment your boost still has effect. Avoid grinding the border! Just jump straight to the wall from an angle. Got it noobs?... :P Yeah! I've got mad skillz!... ROFLOL!
