I've been listening to the Koyaanisqatsi OST recently and can't get over how amazing it is. Shit is incredible

And anything Jonny Greenwood puts out is great. Best example I'm aware of, There Will Be Blood OST.

Just flowing with energy.

Anybody got some favorites they'd like to share?

I think you'll love Philip Glass' other soundtrack Powaqqatsi.

As for other movie soundtracks, I have quite a few. Some of the one's I've recently listened to are:
The Commitments
District 9 by Clinton Shorter
Gladiator by Hans Zimmer & Lisa Gerrard
How To Train Your Dragon by John Powell
The Living Sea by Sting
TRON: Legacy by Daft Punk

Normally, I differentiate between a score and a soundtrack. In this case, I didn't think you would care.

I'll have to check those out, thanks!


OH, and I forgot to post the Taxi Driver score.

Only a lite snippet of it, but it's best experienced first time when you hear it in the movie(like most scores).

As a huge fan of My Bloody Valentine I'm guilty for saying it but the work Kevin Shield did on the movie Lost in Translation is pretty good.

I definitely agree with you when you say hearing it in the actual movie is way better, gives it a special meaning.

Her (2013)
The soundtrack was mostly made by Arcade Fire, but there were songs written by other people too.

I loved that soundtrack. Song on the Beach was especially beautiful.

Glass' soundtracks are always something special and I loved the music he did for the Koyaanisqatsi and the other Reggio films. Zimmer also does amazing work with the music from The Thin Red Line being my personal favorite out of all of his. Also really enjoyed the music composed by John Tavener for Children of Men; Fragments of a Prayer is a song I chronically have stuck in my head. Howard Shore's music for the Lord of the Rings trilogy never ever misses a step and it's some of the most fitting music ever composed for a fantasy piece of work. Vangelis' work for Blade Runner is also another wonderfully imagined work for a surreal setting.

Always enjoy listening to the soundtracks of neo-westerns The Proposition and 3:10 to Yuma by Nick Cave/Warren Ellis and Marco Beltrami respectively. Another fine score and soundtrack is the one for Collateral by Tom Rothrock. The tones he gets from a guitar are amazing. I wouldn't be lying if I told you I've probably listened to the original Star Wars trilogy soundtracks probably at least 100 times. John Williams is the undisputed king of unforgettable soundtracks. Joe Hisaishi always ALWAYS makes great music for the Ghibli films, truly he's as much a treasure as Miyazaki himself. Lastly, I'll give a mention to Gustavo Santaolalla for his many contributions to various film and video game scores. Love his music so much.

Might add more later.

Of course I have! Hisaishi can do no wrong in my book. I also really loved the music of The Secret World of Arrietty from Cecile Corbel. More singular in tone and timbre but equally as lush and beautiful as the other Ghibli scores.

Ohh i see. Sadly, i havent seen The Secret World of Arrietty as of the moment. In the near future maybe i will the main theme for Howl's Moving Castle is quite lovely too. Actually, anything that studio ghibli does always strikes a chord in my heart
