I like the City Of Angels soundtrack. Barely remember a thing about the movie, but the CD is good. :)

And The Million Dollar Hotel, of course!

I like the soundtrack compositions of Ennio Morricone, so this compilation released on the Rhino label is a good place to start, but I believe it's out of print.

Stand out tracks include the songs from Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy (with Clint Eastwood) & Once Upon A Time In The West, Una Pistola Per Ring, Il Ritorno Di Ringo, & Il Giardino Delle Delizie; the last one is Morricone's stab at rock'n'roll.

Any of the David Lynch soundtracks composed by Angelo Badalamenti, especially Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive.

Two of my favorites have already been mentioned -- Pulp Fiction and Trainspotting.  Two other Quentin Tarantino films that I think have great soundtracks are Jackie Brown and Reservoir Dogs.  A few others -- Dazed and Confused, Saturday Night Fever, and Boogie Nights. 

I don't know if I'd include Rattle and Hum and The Wall in as purely soundtrack albums, but if they were, they'd be on here too.
