All in all, a pretty random mix of hip-hop, reggae, classic music and...Eastern European rap (consider my curiosity piqued on that one). The average person might, depending on their taste, enjoy one third of the album and hate the rest. It's sort of a cross-section of the full in-game soundtrack, which is spread out over sixteen radio stations. The game will also have two talk radio stations and an additional custom station where you can play imported MP3's.
Oh, and one other piece of GTA4 news to keep you excited: IGN published its review yesterday, which said it was the best game since Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Two more days...
