^^ Anime soundtracks need to get more appreciation.

I particularly like:

Ghost in the Shell OST 2/3/Solid State Society (just an excellent mix of different styles)
Cowboy Bebop OST 1 (very accessible modern jazz with elements of blues, fusion)
Grave of the Fireflies OST (dark brooding classical sections intertwined with a child-like sense of wonder)
Jin Roh OST (mix of minimalism and sweeping orchestral work)

Also for traditional movies:

The Fountain OST (great collaborative work between Clint Mansell, Kronos Quartet and Mogwai)
The Road OST (recent, but haunting and evocative)

While we're at it, I think the Rockers OST is an equally good snapshot of the state of reggae, again, other than Marley, from a few years later. Taken together The Harder They Come and Rockers offer a solid intro to the genre (pre-dancehall and ragga, of course.)

Quentin Tarantino films have very good soundtracks. The compilations based on his films are a very enjoyable listen.

Le Destin Fabuleux d'Amelie Poulain, great soundtrack and still on my list.
