Once Again, the Grand Theft Auto Soundtrack Is Slaying It

Were it possible to magically transport yourself into Grand Theft Auto V and flip on the radio in one of your ill-begotten rides, you'd hear mind-blowing tunes by the likes of Flying Lotus, Wavves, Twin Shadow, Yeasayer, and Tyler, the Creator.more

You'd also have to dodge bullets and subject yourself to all sorts of danger your indie-lovin' ass probably isn't ready for.

Luckily, there's another way to incorporate the GATV soundtrack into your daily life. On Dec. 9, Rockstar releases a pair of limited-edition The Music of Grand Theft Auto V box sets, featuring not only the 59 tracks heard in the game, but also the original score, composed by Tangerine Dream, Woody Jackson, Oh No, and the Alchemist.

The CD version spreads the music over three discs and comes with artwork, a poster, and a USB stick shaped like a gold brick, according to PC Gamer. The vinyl version, meanwhile, features six LPs, an exclusive lithograph, and a color booklet.

GTAV arrives on Xbox and PS4 this month, with the PC edition following in January 2015. All three will be available in far greater quantities than the box set, which is only getting a run of 5,000 copies. No word yet on the price, but if it's too steep, it might warrant a little grand theft audio.
