I've never been to a rave but I'm still with you on the SoR3 soundtrack. I'm not really sure how to put it. I mean, basically, there are songs I like from the other two, but the general style of 3's soundtrack just "feels" better for this kind of game, to me.
The Neverhood on the PC is something I have always liked, the music is a catchy mix of blues, jazz and folk music. The Mega Man X series also is real good. Epic and frantic rock to go along with all the Reploid carnage.
There's so many soundtracks I could post here, but for now I'll stick with my latest love
Words cannot describe how much I love this soundtrack. Power Glove did excellent job and overall this is probably my most favorite soundtrack as a whole when it comes to modern games.
And thats not even all! Game also had couple of licensed songs, all very 80's. I dont know where the friendship song is from, but "Hold on to the Vision" is from a Van Damme movie "No Retreat, No Surrender" (In which Van Damme is actually only seen in the beginning and in the end) and the third one is from Rocky IV. They also used Long Tall Sally at the helicopter scene in the beginning, which is a shout out to Predator.

Other personal favourites include Shin Megami Tensei II, the first two Golden Sun games, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, Arcana (or Card Master if you're Japanese) and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Great soundtrack, also one of my favorites. It is totally legitimate ambient drum n bass/ungle. Sorry to hijack the thread with non-videogame music, but check out Parallel Universe and Digable Bass to get an idea of what inspired it.

Elevator Action Returns V.C.O Cinema Mix. Technically, it's a remix album, but I'm assuming it'll slide with you guys.
As the name implies, it is part Elevator Music. It is also part Action Music. Maybe even part Returns music, who knows? Calm one minute, tense the other, it's perfect if you're looking for "moody" music... Not necessarily "good" music.
I also enjoy all of the Etrian Odyssey music (it's composed by Yuzu Koshiro, so it has to be great). I think my favorite track from the series is probably the first battle theme from Etrian Odyssey III.
I've also recently been into the music from The Ninja Warriors Again on the SNES. Everyone knows that the arcade game has an excellent soundtrack, being composed by Zuntata, but I think the SNES game has a really underrated soundtrack. My favorite track is probably the first part of stage five.
