What are the best movie soundtracks and scores that can be listened to as musical experiences purely based on the music, not in relation to the movies they were written for?

A while ago there was an askme asking for recommendations of modern orchestral pieces and it occurred to me that movie scores would be a great source, based on my love of the music from Lord of the Rings, The Piano, Carrington, Requiem for a Dream and others which I enjoy a great deal without even thinking of the movies associated with them.
