I like the music from Garden of Sinners. I enjoy the orchestral quality of the music, as well as the use of vocals. I think that the music complements the themes of the films that they are associated with.
I especially like "Sprinter" as the tempo and rhythm seem to match the lyrics.

My personal favorite anime soundtracks are Cowboy Bebop, like everyone else, Lupin III A Woman called Fujiko Mine tv soundtrack (which I have yet to have found anywhere), Samurai Champloo, Riding Bean, and Redline. These are all great, but for japanese music, I listen to Perfume. I listen to quite a bit, and these girls are my favorite. Their songs are mostly upbeat electro, with vocals autotuned to hell (but really, who isn't these days). There songs feature some "engrish" which I know some people find annoying, but I still love them to death.

I am currently listening to Zone's Secret Base, I believed this is the ED song for Anohana.. I can't seem to stop listening to it, its nostalgic and sad all at the same time. I just love it.

I've been listening to Chata's songs before. I used to play her Nagareboshi's song nonstop before I came across Secret Base. I also have been listening to this one particular song of hers I don't know whats the title I just found it on youtube and its something like Trip by the Sea the piano piece in it is a fantasy!

I really like Megumi Hayashibara's Infinity from Lost Universe, because it is a very comforting/energetic tune that snaps me out of a bad mood.

The ones made by Susumu Hirasawa, because he's the best, not only is he great at composing, even in weird ways, he has a huge weird imagination and his works are soulful, the only musician which I can identify, as when I hear a work he made and it's otherworldly, it couldn't have been anyone but him who made it.

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei has some very good music both the many theme songs & the score captures the mood of the show well.

while not featuring much in the actual show, the character album is a very good listen. Each song manages to fit the personality of the character, helped by the fact that the original performers are singing.

My favorite Japanese music as of lately has been anything by Koda Kumi and Ayumi Hamasaki. I've been addicted to them as of lately!They're music has such a variety. And I also enjoy listening to their old music then comparing it to how it is now. Its so interesting to see the change.

I also love Japanese indie artists such as Hiromi (aka Rainbow), May J., and MiChi. They are so underrated but so talented! Its amazing how powerful their voices and music are
