I meant to post this a while ago but I got interrupted and forgot about it :\
The album I was absolutely obsessed with a few months ago is a gem of Björk's I found by chance on the internet. It is the soundtrack to the Lars von Trier film Dancer In The Dark , and the album itself is called SelmaSongs.
It sound very much like a film soundtrack and the first track, Overture, establishes that right away with a long orchestral introduction. The entire track features not only full orchestral scores but also music made from everyday sound. I've heard the explanation for this is that in the film the main character goes off into daydreams and constructs musical theatre scenes out of the world she can barely see because she is going blind. But the track I love most of all is I've Seen It All, a duet by Björk and Radiohead's Thom Yorke. It is haunting and utterly delightful, and now I am deperate to see the film.

Björk - Scatterheart
Björk - 107 Steps
