"Grosse Pointe Blank" — The Clash, Pixies, Pogues, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, the scene of Guns N Roses' cover of "Live and Let Die" seguing perfectly into the Muzak version of the same song... excellent.
"The Big Chill" — I think most Baby Boomers love the hell out of this soundtrack; at least all the ones I know do.
"Trainspotting" — Much as someone said they couldn't go to a party in '94-'95 without hearing the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, I don't think I could go to a party in '96-'97 without hearing the Trainspotting soundtrack.
"FM" if you can find it. It has no static at all, you know.

The score to "Requiem for a Dream" (done by The Kronos Quartet) is pretty awesome. I've also lately been enjoying the soundtrack album for "Paranoia Agent" (anime that just ended its run on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block for those who don't know).
In terms of soundtracks, the soundtracks for Tarantino flicks are almost universally awesome. My current fave is the one for "Kill Bill Volume 1."
