Don't know if they're the best, but I like the soundtracks for The Wicker Man (1973), MirrorMask, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I don't know how to find music similar to the soundtrack of Io Non Ho Paura, but I love to know of any.
Oh, Lord. Somewhere I even have the soundtrack to Hardware.
"Composer Simon Boswell describes his score for 'HARDWARE' as if a Celtic Ry Cooder on acid had discovered God and decided to write opera," says some liner notes somewhere. I mostly bought it for the Rossini, but it has Ministry too, so there.
YES! Tarantino does great soundtracks. Cameron Crowe/Nancy Wilson, too. I love the soundtrack to Almost Famous.
I loved the weird-ish music to There Will Be Blood.
A perennial favorite is Angelo Badalamente's (sp?) music for the Twin Peaks series. Also, the Battlestar Galactica music by Bear McCreary is extremely cool. I saw a concert of it when I was in L.A., and it was just electrifying.
I can never get the youtube thing to work. :steam:
God I love this album I cry my eyes out whenever I hear those tracks.
First the devestating death, accompanied by suicide music, ending with a triumphant score that carries you away and washes through you hopeful feelings of optimism. (err when I hear these tracks I sort of play my own life and my own triumph out in my head lol)
