My absolute favorite soundtrack is actually divided in three parts - The Lord of the Rings. Unfortunately I am guilty of only having the three albums in lossy at the moment, but that will soon change. When I listen to LotR, I spend most of it with shivers because it affects me on an inner-emotional level.

As girly as it may sound, I regularly use The Phantom of the Opera movie soundtrack for reference when I listen to new gear.

Honorable mentions for me would be the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks, Gladiator, West Side Story, Les Miserables, and anything ever composed by Gershwin for Broadway musicals.

Oh yes, Jon's recommendation for Requiem for a Dream is also fantastic. Especially the Remix Project.

The 24 soundtrack is pretty good as well. I've got a couple seasons (3 and 4, I believe) worth and there are some excellent tracks.

Edit:
Also, since I move into my new apartment tomorrow, all my audio gear is packed up in the van. Which means I'm sitting here at 1:30 am and I can't rock out. :'(

Woke up randomly at 3am this morning (like, now) and put my headphones on ...

A seldom listened too release from a band called "Caustic Resin" was playing (think "Built to Spill," etc.) ...

And... ?

It was utterly divine sounding . ..

Layer upon layer of guitar bliss.

Saturated. Warm, twisted and sick.

...


...

"Imagine John Lennon playing heavy metal without the tasteless soloing. Bowie and Ronson doing Soundgarden covers. A great big devil boogie with beards and make-up."

...

A very very fine piece of indie rock.

Just had to post something ...

In the interest of just posting something, i would like to praise my HD555's once again.

This time it was the Kubrick's movie Full Metal Jacket that put a smile on my face via my ears. Never have explosions sounded so good, gunshots so true to life, and screams so dis-hearteningly real.

Can't wait to upgrade myself again

Hurrah for Sennheiser!

While I'm not a big fan of Phantom of the Opera, my wife is so I have a copy of the movie. I also bought it for her on HD. Just waiting for my subs to come to watch it though.... I doubt she'll let me, but I'd be happy watching just one scene...

Soundtracks... I normally don't purchase soundtracks, but there were two that I just had to have recently.
Dan in Real Life

Watched the Phantom of the opera movie on our houses klipsh surround system and i can understand why you would use it for reference purposes. very large dynamic vocal ranges in the least.

I really liked, the Dan in real life soundtrack, Sondre Lerche is a very unique voice to me, but some may compare him to the likes of Jason miraz but with less synth.

As much of a anime, video game, etc fan i am, i can whole heartedy advise that you try the Final Fantasy 7: Advent children Soundtrack. very little vocals, if any, just good ole plain orchestrated, synthesized music. But definately worth a listen.


PS: Phospho, if you wanna come up and try my HD580s, you can as soon as i get them. lol

I can't stop listening to Audioslave at the moment.

Bryan~ The Dark Knight soundtrack is great. My brother bought it because he is obsessed with Batman and I took a listen. Some great composing going on in that album.
