They do make them like they used too...

I recently saw the film MOON, and it is by far one of the greatest science fiction pictures out there. Up there with 2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Alien/Aliens, Blade Runner, Silent Running and Outland. Everything about this film, the great directing, writing, production design, costume design, editing, the non-cgi visual effects, the absolutely amazing performence from Sam Rockwell (oscar nomination please)...but my favourite aspect, was this soundtrack.
Clint Mansell is the top composer working in the business today, though so unrecognized by so many. Hans Zimmer, James Horner, John Williams and James Newton Howard seem to get all the attention, however Clint Mansell is masterful, with his great soundtrack to Requiem for a Dream and the absolutely mindblowing beautifully scored soundtrack for The Fountain, now with Moon as a part of his legacy, Mansell should soon be on his way to an Oscar nomination too, after getting snubbed out of one for The Fountain.
This is an amazing soundtrack...GET IT!
