Can you Turn Off Music in Need for Speed Unbound?

I feel the need, the need for a good soundtrack.

Being a musician, I treasure music as a big part of gaming. Being it original music or a curated playlist of well known songs, the music should serve the game always. A good OST or music will make the game better and improve the immersion. A deficient one will sound almost sarcastic, with work-in-progress undertones and an immersion-breaking production. In this case, Need for Speed Unbound has been accused of having a lackluster soundtrack that does not fit the game at all. The controversy is a constant source of discussion in forums and discussions. And while this is not a solution, the following can be a personal fix for you to enjoy your Need for Speed experience: can you turn off music in Need for Speed Unbound? Let’s find out.
