LiSA's crossing field took me by surprise; I was expecting it to be fairly mediocre, but it turned out to be good on quite a few levels. I'm really looking forward to hearing the full studio version of the song.

The OST is also great. I'm usually not one for OSTs, but I found SAO's quite appealing.

The OP is really good. Accel World's OP was pretty good as well but I liked SAO's OP more.

As for the OST, it's decided. I will definitely buy the CD.

SAO's opening turned out a lot better than I expected. Was lingering around decent when I heard the snippet, and then the tv version ended up boosting it to pretty good.

The OST sounds beautiful though. I can't wait to hear more in the coming weeks.

The music had me thinking of Fate/Zero quite a few times with LiSa and Yuki kaijura. Not necessarily a bad thing though.

My rating on the BGM:

My rating of Crossing Field by LiSA:

You guys don't think it's kind of all over the place? The melody was very dissonant from some moments to the next. The voicing was non-harmonious w/ the music. Copy pasting practically any other song on top of the awesome OP animation made the OP better 0_o

I'm enjoying the OP very much especially the action part where the tempo goes up.
think i'll make that into my ringtone.

Yuki Kajiura ftw! Sure, she keeps getting typecasted in these composing roles(Fate/Zero, Madoka) but how can we blame her when she keeps putting out these amazingly epic scores? This first episode probably wouldn't have felt half as grandly epic without her music

I wouldn't say that the op music final product was top tier, but LiSa gave some decent vocals. While it was kind of meh during the almost-spoken closure, the actual singing parts were good imo. Was mostly hoping for an upbeat song (check) and nice visuals (check) anyways.

Not at all. I think it's a great piece of work; I simply can't stop listening to it. It's one of my 3 favourite OPs of this season.

As someone who has dabbled in music (drums), the music is definitely great. I also think the vocals are good; I'd prefer it sound like this, rather than sounding like a song that was edited to the extreme, so as to "sound better". I've seen a video or two of her live, and the studio version of the TV size OP doesn't sound too different.

I'm a big fan of almost spoken" parts in music, so I quite liked those parts in the song, especially the bit of English at the very end. :3

Aye, same. But I much prefer unfinished to Yume Sekai (the full versions, anyway). I love KOTOKO. :>

Never said it was. I like it, but I just prefer Kotoko's work.
