Koyaanisqatsi
Philip Glass

96

Taking his cues from the film's impressive visuals, Glass' cult soundtrack is nothing short of hypnotic.

Despite the soundtrack's prominence and importance in the film, the complete recording wasn't released until 2009. An original soundtrack was released in 1983 alongside the film, but at only 46 minutes, it acts as more of a 'best of' compilation than a comprehensive album. Glass released a longer version 15 years later, clocking in at 73 minutes.
