"There Will Be Blood"
Composer: Jonny Greenwood
Credentials: Greenwood has been melting faces as the lead guitarist of English rock band Radiohead for over 20 years.
Why it's awesome: Some of the material on Greenwood's score was conceived prior to the film, so it was ineligible for Oscar consideration. Pity, given that it's such dynamic work, something caught between traditionalism and avant-garde. A tasty mixture.
Best track: "Prospector's Quartet"
