This is a tough question to answer. Soundtracks and BGMs have always been a strong feature in anime with a wide range of styles. Some of my favourites are the eerie and haunting soundtrack that Kenji Kawai produced for the Vampire Princess Miyu OAVs, the Bubblegum Crisis soundtracks, almost anything by Yoko Kanno, and the classically themed soundtrack to Record of Lodoss Wars.
But in the end I’m going to go with the Silent Moebius 2 soundtrack. The music for both the Silent Moebius films is just fabulous but what tips the second over the line is the beautiful duet between the two lead actresses. It is just so pretty to listen to, and sums up the key theme of the movie perfectly.
