#8. Clint Mansell - The Fountain (Nonesuch, 2006)

Kronos Quartet + Mogwai. One of my favorite movies of the decade (yeah, I'm one of those guys). The soundtrack stands on its own - I loved it before I even saw the movie - but now that it's inexorably tied to Aronofsky's visuals it comes off as even better. And if there's a more sweepingly epic bit of music than "Death Is the Road to Awe" that was released this decade I can't say I'v heard it.
