Question COMPOSERS - best anime scores

Maybe this thread was posted before but I found this as a good variation on topic "your favorite anime composers" and it could be potential guide for next shopping (at least for me ).

KEN MURAMATSU - Kurenai
TAKAYUKI NEGISHI - Mnemosyne
TOSHIKO SAHASHI - Fullmetal Panic
TSUNEYOSHI SAITO - Fafner movie: Heaven and Earth
KEI HANEOKA - Ladies Vs Butlers
TAKU IWASAKI - Kekaishi
ELEMENTS GARDEN - White Album
CONISCH - Linebarrels of Iron
TATSUYA KATO - Kämpfer
YASUNORI IWASAKI - Fortune Quest L
TAKAYUKI HATTORI - Tears of Tiara
HAYATO MATSUO - Brave of Gold Goldran
TANAKA KOHEI - One Piece TV series
SHIRO HAMAGUCHI - Big Windup
AKIFUMI TADA - Night Walker
TOMOKI KIKUYA - Princess Lover
SEIKOU NAGAOKA - Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream
SHINJI MIYAZAKI - Pokémon Ranger and the Prince of the Sea
AKIRA SENJU - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
TARO IWASHIRO - Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: Star of Milos
YASUO HIGUCHI - Little Princess Sara
TOMOHISA ISHIKAWA - Togainu No Chi
KAZUNORI MIYAKE - Bakegyamon

I am curious about your choices.

All the best
Porter

Anything by Tsuneo Imahori, but especially Gungrave.

This is interesting soundtrack with melodic prog-rock sound and excellent guitar solos and bass lines. There is also used sax in very decent way.

I will try to upload some tracks on youtube.

I could say (restricted to anime of course):
-Aria soundtracks: Choro Club & relaxing tunes
-Ergo Proxy
-Eureka 7 (even this new Ao series, didn't like the anime but the music was nice)
-Fate/Zero, Kara no Kyoukai, Madoka OSTs (it's true I generally like Kajiura's scores; some can say meh but it's all just personal opinion in the end)
-Tatsuya Katou scores, e.g. Horizon, Hyakka Ryouran - while these animes are definitely insta-skip for me, Katou writes some very good music
-Planetes
-Susumu Hirasawa's scores for Kon's movies
-almost all Ghibli OSTs
-Yasuharu Takanashi's warehouse of stuff heh
-Time of Eve

...probably a bit more but something like that

TOSHIHIKO TAHASHI - Cyber Formula SAGA/SIN & Gundam Seed/Seed Destiny
Action packed tracks with violins, trombones and E.guitars, that's why I love those soundtracks.
