Akira - although not strictly orchestral.

Dead Man - Not sure whether Neil Young guitar noodling rather than actual songs falls within the strict criteria either.

Paris, Texas. Ry Cooder knows what he's doing.

John Barry is surely master. Bond is iconic

Agree that Barry's use of brass and strings was the perfect sound for the early Bond films. I also love his "Out of Africa" score. Oddly though, my favourite overall Bond soundtrack is "Live and Let Die" which was actually composed by George Martin, although it feels heavily influenced by Barry.

John Williams' "ET" as also a particular favourite, and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" has some very strong moments.
