I'll wait for the rip for a review but it's very nice so far :) I can't remember which ost had which stuff so I have to go back to track titles to make a comparison but I'd say Kajiura has come a long waay in SAO (and can do better).
Okay, I don't remember the bagpipes at all. Are they rejects from Hanako? lol Well, the one is the swordland theme kind of. I like it. I wish there were the individual songs though. This one had a ton of vocal on it, which is nice. And a lot of different styles.
There's some repeats in violins for whatever reason, I kept them as is. Didn't bother finding romanizations for all the names cause not all of them were on vgmdb. I might look around for them more tomorrow and update.
Added voices to the chorus when the people were listed on tokyo konsei wiki. Not all were but you can probably guess the remaining voices (sopranos).
宮田圭一 /Miyata Keiichi is a bass on wiki but the other guys listed around him in the booklet are tenors. I kept the wiki voice but could be a tenor in this recording, Iunno.

Except they put the credits where they always had space in previous booklets. Lazy omission.
I don't know why... because on paper I should not enjoy it this much... but I really like "the final war". Probably my favorite from the choir tracks of Alicization. Maybe it's more because of what the strings are doing though, Iunno. Or mebe how the brass is used (synth or not)... Anyhuu, I like this one v much.
Still hoping for that standalone Music Collection.
