"The song featured in the 'movie' at the beginning of Gran Turismo is a Chemical Brothers remix of "Everything Must Go" by the Manic Street Preachers, which is the title track from their fourth album of the same name (obviously), which, from memory, was released in 1996. The 'Manics' regularly used the Chemical Brothers to remix their tracks from that period on and included them on the B-sides/extra tracks on their single releases for the next few years or so. God only knows where you can get the version heard on the GT intro (somebody else may have posted it above - I can't remember! :P), but there's the facts for ya, so it may help....."
Who cares if one song is gone?

"The only thing that the other people have to say is that this disc is incomplete, but if they would take some time and listen to the rest of the album they might realize that it totally rocks. While the Chem. Bros. song is cool, it was used in the introduction and dosent really need to be on this cd to give it a nice, well rounded sound. While songs such as Lose Control by Ash, and As Heaven Is Wide by Garbage, being directly from the game, both need and deserve a place on the disc.The discs bigest problem lies in the fact that its mixing is off beat at best, keeping it from a 5 star rating. It seems to alternate from mod-rock to tech on every other song, and where it dosent, there is a major change in tempo between songs, making it hard to race consistantly to. With a little re-aranging, this cd could have been great and if you take the time to program it in a better order it is, but you shouldnt have to waste the time on things like that.Some of the really good songs: CONSPIRACY (HEXIDECIMAL 7") by Terrorvision WHOOSH by Bentley Rhythm Ace WIDE OPEN SPACE by Mansun ECT..."
Not exactly what people expect , but still not too bad.

"Although most of the music is able to be driven to , some of the music tracks just distract from the mood Gran Tourismo originally established.Tracks 2, 11, and 14 don't really seem to fit in with the GT soundtrack. There were also some good songs from the game that weren't present in the soundtrack. However, fans of exceptional racing tunes should enjoy tracks 6, 7, and 13. Check this CD out if you'd enjoy a more rebellious feeling to racing your GT."
