I don't associate good music with regions. I associate good music with composers or studios that are known for good music. Squaresoft has traditionally had fantastic music, and I think that the game Ni No Kuni has really enjoyable music which apparently is no surprise to fans of Joe Hisaishi's composing. On the other hand, a lot of Japanese games have had music so obnoxious I've turned the volume off for certain sections of the game.

I've had music from plenty of "western" games stuck in my head, like Quest For Glory 1 and 3, Dune, Dark Sun: Shattered Lands... and frankly those probably are not even the best examples, but they're just easy to remember because they're in my games list.

East. As great as the music is in western games, nothing can beat the music from the zelda series.

Japanese audio used to be way ahead, but it stopped progressing.

Japan had the more memorable chiptunes, but I like the orchestral/full audio stuff better from the West. But I don't pay that much attention.
The statement below is true.

Tough, Japan though. I prefer some of the JRPG OSTs to any other really.

My faves:

Final Fantasy Series
Dragon Quest VIII

The Elder Scrolls Series
Halo Series
Mass Effect Series.

I actually struggled for three western examples, so definitely Japanese.
PLAYING - ACIV: Black Flag (PS4), Rayman L (PS4), South Park: TSOT (PS3), Final Fantasy XIV (PC)
MOST WANTED - Destiny, Dark Souls II, FFX/X-2 HD, Evil Within
