As far as single tracks go, "Agnus Dei -Megalith-" from Ace Combat 4 is the best music I've ever heard. It's worth playing through the game just to hear that music.

For soundtracks though, I agree that Jesper Kyd is great. Freedom Fighters has one of the best game soundtracks I've heard, and his work on Hitman is pretty good as well. He does some nice techno too (even if it is a bit generic), Scorcher and MDK2 have some really nice techno beats in them. Wonder what his next project is...hope he's making the soundtrack for Freedom Fighters 2.

Shadowrun (SNES)
Deus Ex
Outcast
Bureau 13
Doom (mostly the SNES version... it had much better music than the MIDI in the PC version)

Hitman 2... Jesper Kyd did a FANTASTIC job on the music in that game.

Na na na, na na na, na na na na na na na na.... Oh that so takes me back.

I enjoyed the music from NOLF 2 as well. And the original Unreal music is outstanding.

I'm also very much into the sounds from Ninja Gaiden - great mix of eastern/western styles in that game.

Oh yeah, forgot about Outcast, that has a pretty good, overlooked soundtrack as well. And now that I think about it, Breakdown actually has some extremely well-done music, especially as far as fitting the situation. The music after the first real fight against Solus is so touching, it almost brought a tear to my eye.
