Good soundtracks in the last year

I used to listen to a lot of anime soundtracks, since the last couple years I started watching less and less series due to lack of interest and not seeing anything interesting airing but I was wondering if any good soundtracks have come out of late.
I like the yuki kajiura, yoko kanno as well as michiru oshima in terms of style.
I have checked out the Madoka and Sakamichi no Apollon soundtracks and I also found the tiger & bunny and star driver soundtracks rather interesting.

So did anything good come out of late soundtrack-wise or am I still in a wait?

Semi-recent ones I'd say Fate/Zero, and Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere both had notable good sound tracks. (Full soundtracks for both halves of each are out now)

It's just my opinion but Mashiro-iro Symphony has a really good soundtrack based on what I've heard.

Michiru Oshima is in charge of Zetsuen no Tempest for this season, it sounds brilliant so far so you might want to wait a bit more.

I second Fate/Zero for more Yuki Kajiura.

Other than that, I enjoyed Chihayafuru's OST, really cute and light hearted. Usagi Drop had a fair share of heart-warming & relaxing pieces.

For more action oriented, Jormungand 's OST was really badass featuring one of the best rap pieces I've heard in anime recently.
For slightly older ones, Guilty Crown and Ao no Exorcist by Hiroyuki Sawano might be worth checking out if you haven't

As to more of Yuki Kajiura you might want to keep an eye out for the Sword Art Online Original Soundtrack I which supposedly will be released on January 23, 2013 as bonus CD to Vol. 4 of the Sword Art Online Limited Edition BD/DVD.

Already released this spring/summer and not mentioned here yet is the Aquarion EVOL "Eve no Shihen" OST and its supplement Aquarion EVOL Love@New Dimension Vocal Album. Composer/Arranger is Yoko Kanno. So you might consider to check these out.

In terms of interesting and fairly new releases (2011/12) I recommend the OSTs for [C]: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control and Ben-To. Both composed/arranged by Iwasaki Taku. Both are awesome. His BGM for Jormungand is not bad at all but personally I'd prefer these two. (There is also his splendid Katanagatari score, but this is from the end of 2010 and not brand new. If you missed it though... )

The Kuragehime Original Soundtrack "Amazing AMARS!!" (composed by Yoshimori Makoto) is another one that is quite enjoyable. His way of mixing all kinds of genres together into something new and sometimes slightly weird-sounding is appealing. If you find you like his style you might consider to give the 3rd/4th season OST of Natsume Yuujinchou (San/Shi Music Collection - Hinemosu Kirari Kirari) a try too.

Stylistically completely different but also interesting and enjoyable would be the OST for UN-GO (composed/arranged by NARASAKI). At least I found it enjoyable... Especially the ED theme "Fantasy" by Lama is absolutely, completely addictive. "Kou" a flamenco sounding acoustic guitar piece paired with some electronica is pure genius.

I thought Horizon offers one of the best soundtracks (which was composed by Tatsuya Katou) I listened to recent animes. If you want the same style, try The Future Diary's original soundtrack which was also composed by Katou. The Dantalian no Shoka one by Yo Tsuji also features a magnificiently classy OST and the same goes for Sengoku Collection's soundtrack by Tomoki Kikuya, but I don't think it's up yet. This season's K offers an interestingly urban soundtrack composed by Mikio Endo, and if you like it, try the OST of his other works.
