soundtrack recommendations?

Hi everyone! I am hoping that perhaps some of you might be able to help me think of some good anime soundtracks (I've got game soundtracks covered, so I'm specifically looking for anime now). I'm very picky about what I listen to, but I'm always looking for new sounds to try out.

I really cannot stand most vocal anime tunes. I make exceptions for some really outstanding ones- like Please Save my Earth and Escaflowne. That being said, I'm looking for something with a high quality orchestral sound.

I already have Gundam Wing, Cowboy Bebop, El-Hazard, Record of Lodoss War, and PSME. I've heard one or two tracks from Princess Mononoke which are pretty nice- does anyone know if the entire soundtrack is worthwhile? Also, since Escaflowne has decent music but SO many soundtracks, which one would be best?

Please suggest! I appreciate any help. ^_^

Anyone notice that for most of those titles the music was done by Yoko Kanno? She is probably one of the most talented musicians I've ever heard of.
Another really good soundtrack is Earth Girl Arjuna (another by Yoko ^-^), I've listened to almost all the music from both albums, I just need to get my hands on the original CDs. (It'll cost a pretty penny, but it's worth it) Lain: Cyberia Mix is really funky if you're looking for something other that background music. Plus Yoko did Turn-A-Gundam, so that stuff is worth a listen as well. ^-^

p.s. Macross Plus, EG Arjuna and Escaflowne are probably my top three favourite soundtracks of all time!

YES!!!! I only have OST 1 but I'm already in LOVE with it!! The vocals are so beautiful, and the instrumentals.. wow.

The Angel Sanctuary OST is also another AMAZING soundtrack. I really enjoy instrumentals and this has kind of an elegant, eerie feel to it.. veeery nice.

By the by, has anyone heard the Xenosaga soundtrack yet? By far my FAVORITE soundtrack of all time, probably. It blows me away..

being the Big O fan that I am I'm gonna have to say the Big O soundtrack. It has creepy, sad, goofy, and blues songs all in one cd.

Another one of my favorites is Trigun the first donuts and the first Inu Yasha soundtrack.

I've just seen Spirited Away a few days ago and the background music is kinda nice.

Escaflowne and Cowboy Bebop are also really cool.

FLCL(furi kuri), its like the first J-Rock I ever liked. Half the time its impossibe to make out the vocals. But thats just one of the cool characteristics of this. "Something something SPIDER something something." Its just so upbeat and energetic.

I'm loving Earth Girl Arjuna.. frankly the soundtrack makes the anime worth watching all the way through.

I second Earth Girl Arjuna, .hack//SIGN, and Utena. Just be careful, there's 8 Utena OSTs.

This site sorts them out, and lets you sample a few tracks.
