I listened to Fairy Tail OSTs and they are good. Vol.1 is even very good, vol.2 seems less fresh and redundant in some parts though. In both vols many slower tracks could be removed w/o any greater loss IMO. Overall feeling is that Yasuharu Takanashi did a great job. Celtic (and even a bit Irish) touch combined with rock fits Fairy Tail well. If you haven't tried these energetic tunes yet, then you should. It maybe won't hit everybody, but this stuff is highly likeable, I tell you.
It's not only my opinion. You can read Burning Lizard's nice review of first OST - I'm mostly agreeing with it.
Here is my TOP15 in track order (~30 mins in total).
FAIRY TAIL ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK VOL.1
01 FAIRY TAIL Main theme
02 Erza no theme | Erza's Theme
03 Mahou Hatsudou | Magic Invocation
04 Dragon Slayer
13 Natsu no theme | Natsu's Theme
28 Mahou Taisen | Magic Duel
30 Akuma Deliora | Deliora the Demon
31 Titania no Yoroi | Titania's Armor
36 FAIRY TAIL Main theme -Slow ver.-
FAIRY TAIL ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK VOL.2
01 Tetsuryuu -Kurogane- | Iron Dragon
02 Shishi no Seirei | Leo
17 Natsu no Mahou 2 ~Karyuu no Kenkaku~ | Natsu's Magic 2 ~Fire Dragon's Piercing~
23 Erza no Mahou 2 ~Tenrin no Yoroi~ | Erza's Magic 2 ~Heavenly Wheel's Armor~
28 Tokihanatareshi Chikara | Released Power
OPs and EDs are much less interesting, at least ones I heard. Why? Because they lack FT spirit built by BGM, i.e. you can use them in a lot of other animes - they're just typical OPs and EDs. It's double-edged sword, because apparently majority like that kind of music. I not severly dislike it, but I prefer if something is highlighting the show. They are not, IMO.
I have not heard Character Song Collection Vol.1 yet, but Vol.2 is not for me - too sweet (especially Happy part. just like Lucy no theme from OST Vol. 1).

Just listened to FAIRY TAIL Character Song Album Eternal Fellow. Looking forward to see the lyrics.
I feel that the VA had done a great job in singing their respective character songs being in character as such.
Gajeel as expected had the "can't sing" ability. Wendy need some confidence. Happy and Charles have a really cute song (Male-cat and Aye!). Erza gave me a feeling that she is training up her voice for the play again.
Natsu, Gray and Lucy are performing their usual singing capability. I feel Gray's other character song "Frozen Soul" sounds better. I could appreciate Natsu's and Lucy's songs as it is the OP and ED of the OAD and the songs are catchy.

Not sure if Gray would be happy or sad, actually a track called Ice Boy .
Really a ton of great songs for this OST. Definitely Erza vs. Erza was great, though also like Dragon Force, Dokuryuu no Cobra, and Tenshi no Kunou.

Well quite late on this but what the hell.
I like the current OP, it's nice and all but I think I liked previous one more, The Rock City Boy. That one was a lot more catchy
Current ED is not bad but again not quite as good as the previous one.
Kinda surprised I found myself liking both previous OP and ED at the same as it's never happened before with this series.

:O Left alone since 2011.
Loved the OSTs. There were some really sad and some really hyped up ones. Only two words can describe the 3 OSTs : Unbelievably Epic.
And a couple OPs and EDs that are really good too. Towa no Kizuna & Rock City Boy from the more recent OPs caught my attention +.+ and the current one , I Wish is great too.

I can so see Gajeel and Pantherlily jamming out to Panther's theme - it's freaking awesome. And so it's Mystogun's...0.0.
I seriously went back and re-read 'certain' scanlated chapters with it as BG and the epicness of some of the scenes pierced the heavens...

Just gonna throw this here, I find the OVA OP better than most. Been a while since I've had one grow on me...the ED songs and the character themes are amazing though

Fairy tail music is so good, it has all the emotions and the epicness of the series, one important reason why Fairy tail is so awesome is because of it's music
Fairy Tail has without any doubt the best music for me, in so less episodes they have already made 3 volumes and i am guessing that the 4th volume is on it's way because i am hearing some new soundtracks in the anime
