Film Scores?

I'm looking for some good scores for films, something pretty minimalist, nothing really over the top. Here are some digs and junk.
You Are There

Perfect soundtrack to a rainy day.
2Kronos Quartet and Mogwai
The Fountain OST

Just kinda put this on so everyone won't rec me this. I love the last track but otherwise I'm not a huge fan.
3The Saddest Landscape
Lift Your Burdens High For This is Where We Cross

Lift Your Burdens High For This is Where We Cross is quite possibly the rawest, most emotional piece of
music I've ever. It almost seems that emo group The Saddest Landscape, recorded they're masterpiece
just jamming in the basement for a straight 40 minutes. Usually this for cause for "lameness" but with
some of the most emotional vocal work I've ever heard and incredibly tight muscianship, they have
created, possibly, the purest emo record ever.
4Howard Shore
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the Kin

Pipen's song is beyond powerful.
5Stars of the Lid
The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid

Probably gonna be my newest 5 soon.
6Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
The Road

Minimalist but epic, dark but glorious, dreary but organic the soundtrack to the Road conveys exactly what
the film presented; a glimmering hope in complete turmoil. Not only that but it could possibly the best
work from both of the artists involved, referring to their work with The Assassination of Jesse James by the
Coward Robert Ford, Cave?s award winning score to The Proposition, Ellis? band Dirty Three, and
whatever else they have been a part of. The Road soundtrack completes maybe one of the decade?s most
prevailing trilogies, while standing on its own as a modern classical masterpiece, taking its place beside
Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Lustmord as creating a perfect soundtrack for the apocalypse.
7Matthew Good Band

Vancouver, to me, is not just a recorded political statement, nor is just a great record by a great artist;
what it is, is one the few records that have such a deep impact on me, not just in my own music but in my
everyday life. It is the kind of record that reminds me of the kind of relevant art that can be made by a
passionate songwriter, even one who has been around for over a decade and has been through so much
desolation. Solely produced by Matthew Good, he combines the grandiose sound of the fan favourite,
Avalanche, with the intimacy of heartbreaking, Hospital Music, creating a soundtrack that is not only
politically savvy and intelligent but also devastating and desperate. With Vancouver, Good doesn?t simply
make his other work irrelevant but instead, effortlessly, combines all the paramount attributes to make
not just the record of the year, but his magnum opus.
8World's End Girlfriend
Ending Story

Ambient laced trip hop meets sample filled post rock. A brilliant.
One Step More and You Die
10Kashiwa Daisuke
Program Music I

almost deserves the hyperbolic raves it receives.
