I'd have to say Age of Conan followed closely by Guild Wars. I would have to give a solid nod to a game that failed, but had a surprisingly good soundtrack, Auto Assault.

WoW had some good music, but that was because grabbed many of its songs from Warcraft II. Most of the original music just didn't seem to be as good to me, though LK had one or two good songs (BC was all miss).

WotLK's Argent Tournament music done by David Arkenstone as well as any other music in WoW is just beautiful. Sets the mood just right.

Even now it's still brilliant.

I loved the Hellgate theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hbuAIWRAJk).

*sigh* If only it had been done right.

LotRO, DDO, and I'll admit to repeatedly running/flying through various CoH zones (Boomtown, I LOVE you!) for the neighborhood music tracks.

I'm a big fan of the Planetside music. Maybe because I was more aware of it as I was waiting for an enemy. And the only noise I heard was the music. Regardles though it has a great soundtrack

Eve.

Only game that I have played for multiple months, and not turned the music off. In fact, I go to the jukebox expressly to play the games music. It's a great mix of ambient/house/trance electronic music.

There are two groups of people here. Those that say the FFXI is one of the best, and those that don't know anything about FFXI.

A couple of game have amazing music, but if you don't mention FFXI in your list, it's like talking about great basketball players and not mentioning Michael Jordan.

Only seen one mention of Vanguard, bummer.

My faves are Vanguard and Age of Conan.

One of my all-time favorites: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMUV4WCRNWQ&feature=related

Terrokar Forest from WoW - I no longer play, but boy does this song bring back some nostalgic memories.

In most cases, I eventually turn off the music because it gets repetitive and annoying, even if I liked it initially. One exception has been Guild Wars. Even after playing it for years, I have yet to get tired of the music in this game.

Definitely LotRO for me.
I especially like:
The Pelennor - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xu5QnUC3Q0I

Age of Conan and Soul of the Ultimate Nation. SUN cheated by having Howard Shore compose the soundtrack, but damn, it's good.

I play LotRO, and don't get me wrong, it's got wonderful music, but Blizzard wins this one hands down. I'm going to narrow WoW right down to Wrath of the Lich King.

Wrath of the Lich King's Assault on New Avalon is definitely up there. The entire Death Knight starting experience is so chiseled and well-done.

If you want variety, then there's the Garden of Life track on the WotLK soundtrack which reminded me of Monkey Island.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6ORD6bXkgA&feature=related

Then there's the music for the Culling of Stratholme
The Nexus (a little bit electric)
Ulduar
The Algalon fight:
The Argent Tournament at Night
Arthas' Death Sequence:

I caught myself turning off the sound system at my home because I wanted to listen to the LotRO soundtrack while playing. The WotLK soundtrack was nice too, but so far LotRO is winning my heart.
