Jet Set Radio Future is all about style, and it's only appropriate that a game named after an underground radio station in futuristic Tokyo would have some good beats. In keeping with the game's massive size, developer Smilebit has assembled a truly eclectic mix of music that mingles tunes by Jet Grind Radio vets Hideki Naganuma and Richard Jacques with pieces from the Latch Brothers and Cibo Matto. The end result doesn't provide quite as cohesive an auditory experience as that found in the original Jet Grind Radio, but that's partly because there's simply more music to go around. In the end, the soundtrack does as excellent a job of conveying the game's style as it does of getting you into the zone while grinding, jumping, and spraying.
