    These guys are astounding at approaching music not with a pre set formula, but with a unique wavelength for every story. The more I listen, the more I discover different thought patterns hidden in the musical nuances.
    That's why I love their work.
    Have you listened to Quake yet?

    Quake > all

    Right now, somewhat haphazardly...

    Each one of these in the first batch is to me a world unto itself, totally self-contained and detachable from their associated films. For me, these ones don't need the film to convey a whole story, atmosphere, mood, etc. I feel like I lived with each one of these for a period and they kind of seeped into my life at the time, some (TGWTDT, Mank) more than others (Birdbox, Empire of Light).

    Side note: I just realized I haven't seen Birdbox or Empire of Light, but whatever:

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
    The Social Network
    Mank
    Birdbox
    Empire of Light
    Gone Girl
    The Watchmen
    Vietnam War

    These are ones I've definitely enjoyed at different times, but always kinda conscious of the fact that they're film scores, and so always kind of with the movie in mind (The Killer I'm on the fence about, cause aside from The Brute, I could see it becoming something more immersive / independent and more like the first group):

    The Killer
    Bones and All
    TMNT: Mutant Mayhem
    Waves
    Soul

    Never got into for some reason (especially Patriot's Day, which I listened to once and never revisited; will definitely do after seeing it so high on some of your lists):

    Before the Flood
    Mid-90s
    Patriot's Day

    I think TGWTDT is my favorite out of all of them. There is a cohesive feeling to that soundtrack that really just takes me into that world of Sweden and the snow and darkness. The Social Network is definitely up there, as is Gone Girl. It seems like a lot of folks here agree those first three are the best of them. I think after those I'd choose Watchmen as a whole. There's a song on Volume 3 called "Which Came First" that is my favorite, but there is another arrangement of it that isn't on the soundtrack but is featured in the show. It's in the last scene where Angela and Will Reeves are sitting in the movie theater, and it's same melodies as a choral arrangement behind it that is just amazing. I ripped the audio of that scene and put it in my digital album calling it "Wounds Need Air".
