While I'm a WoW fan, WoW's music pales in comparison to EQ2. The music is so inspired. After playing for 5 minutes on the old tutorial island, I was hooked on the game's music. The main thing that EQ2's music does better than WoW's is how emotive the music feels. The combat and dungeon music is standard fare, but most of the overland zone music just made the game come alive. Also, in the more aesthetically pleasing zones, the music just made you happy to be playing the game. I've never felt that in WoW.If I had to sum it up, I'd say that WoW's music feels like "game music," while EQ2's music feels like orchestral music that just happens to be in a game. (EQ2's sound format is also very nice --all you need to do is copy the music folder, slap on a title and album artwork with MediaMonkey, and you have the entire game soundtrack!)

Have to agree with you. The music for Antonica and Thundering Steppes still puts me in a happy place, and I haven't played EQ2 in 5 years.
