Yes, it is.

Still wait for the 2 tracks as well.
The one during Kirito's duel with Eugene and the one where Kirito owned those 3 Salamanders.

Currently listening to the OST. Up till track 24.

Really there are so many awesome tracks in this OST. I will never ever doubt Yuki Kajiura's performances again.

Favourite tracks are 1, 6, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 23, 24

I'm waiting for the music from epside 4, when the bad guys try to kill Kirito on the bridge- The music, that starts when Kirito tells them his level and HP. Beautiful piece of work. I hope to have that on the 2nd OST.

IMO, track 1 - The Swordland, Track 19 - Luminous Sword, and Track 23 - A Narrow Escape, are the best combat tracks out of the whole list.

I do wish they'd used Track 19 a lot more, though I suppose using it for the two times when Kirito and Asuna team up onscreen makes it more memorable. But Track 1 is definitely the series leitmotif.

Just finished listening to the 1st soundtrack. Some of the tracks kind of reminds me of .hack//Sign and .hack//Liminality's soundtracks.

Especially track 32- At Nightfall. It reminds me of Grandpa's Violin from .hack//Liminality's soundtrack.

But then again, Yuki Kajiura did those soundtracks long before Sword Art Online's. Look here for the release dates of each Soundtrack:

.hack//Sign OST 1: July 24, 2002
.hack//Sign OST 2: Sept. 21, 2002
.hack//Sign Extra OST: Oct. 23, 2002
.hack//Liminality OST: July 1, 2003
Sword Art Online OST 1: Jan. 23, 2013

I'd also add that track 19 - Luminous Sword - is highly evocative of one of Kajiura's most famous tracks: A Song of Storm and Fire.

Or rather, listening to the two tracks, one can see where Kajiura was influenced by her past work; if I had to make an analogy, I'd describe it as two different cakes, distinctly apart, but made with the same ingredients.

The Swordland is essentially the series leitmotif for SAO.

This was a decent listen, not the best I've heard from Kajiura but still pleasant enough. I do however feel unsatisfied with swordland of all tracks, typically when Kajiura does a big epic track like that it just seems to pack more of a punch than swordland did to me. While it was pleasant I can't help but like the other battle songs like luminous sword and fight much more.

All up I feel this was a mixed bag, but overall pleasant. If I were to give the first soundtrack a rating out of ten, it would probably be a 7.

After listening to the second OST this is probably the worst score I've heard from Kajiura, about as uninspired as the show itself. A few tracks were quite good but overall just meh is the impression I get from listening to this.

Pretty big let down after her Fate/Zero work which i felt was her best since KnK.

In my opinion, the best OST is Swordland.

Same. I'm currently studying for finals and Swordland really got me in the mood to keep studying. It's the inspirational epic theme music that I need.
