A bit less than 2 months until release, and the tracklist for the Sword Art Online Music Collection is out!! Compared to the bundled soundtracks, this one has 16 more tracks in total, destributed between the discs! The issues of ost 2 (dublicate track, wrong pitch in most tracks) seem to be fixed. Despite the additional tracks (+1 Remi song) there seem to still be some missing. Remember that the BD of the Limited Edition will contain video of the 27 minutesperformance of Yuki Kajiura from the「Sword Art Online “Sing all Overtures”」 event.
