My vote: Dunkirk

I never heard such intense music throughout the film in any film before.

Also, if you are planning to add scores of Documentary Feature movies, then I would suggest - Icarus

Great music.

Icarus was so generic to be added to this list IMO.

I'm very biased toward anything in or about this film, but I'll say 'The Florida Project' anyway.

I'm probably one of the biggest fan of Florida Project!!

But, I'm not sure it qualifies for score. Cinematography was beautiful, but I'm not sure there was enough score to be nominated here.

I'm not surprised that you, too, are one of the biggest fans of The Florida Project, as you and I seem to have very similar taste. You might notice around the GS boards that lately several people have been teasing me about The Florida Project because, ever since I saw it in October, I've been nearly obsessed with it and dropping it into conversation or otherwise gushing about it, lol. That's why I said I'd vote for it for best score but, when it comes to voting in a live poll, I agree that it doesn't have much of a score for which to vote. 

Yes, now cinematography, as well as other aspects of the film, could get my real and serious vote.

I loved The Shape of Water's soundtrack - so reminiscent of the olden days, making you feel like you were part of that era... even though we were born long after. It's at once enchanting and melancholy, the way any great jazz is ♫♬

Yup.
The film was underwhelming but soundtrack was one of the things that kept me engaged.

I prefer Phantom Thread's soundtrack though. So meticulously composed!

Kyle, how did you get those great little musical notes? I have a list of emoticon codes but they don't seem to work. It didn't have musical notes on the list, though -- they're great.

Thanks Ruby! I actually just copied and pasted them off of google when I searched for "music emoticons" online. :)

My first suggestion is to list the names of the composers, and if you want, link their names to their pages. So for The Last Jedi, you'd include John Williams' name in the description.

Second, at least one of these doesn't have an original score. The Killing of a Sacred Deer only used pre-recorded music, so would qualify as a soundtrack, not a score. I don't know what the case is for all of the films on the list, but it would be a good idea to check whether or not it's a score or soundtrack for every film just to be safe.

And some more scores for your consideration: A Cure for Wellness (Benjamin Wallfisch), Mary and the Witch's Flower (Takatsugu Muramatsu), Coco (Michael Giacchino), and Ferdinand (John Powell). 

And for my personal vote, I'd have to go with War for the Planet of the Apes. It's got competition from Star Wars and The Shape of Water, but it's got great thematic development and for me feels the most new/exciting.

Yep.

Removed the ones where music was previously recorded and used in the film. 

Added your suggestions.

Correction:
Which of the following scores do you think is THE BEST OF 2017?

There are no names in #10 and #24.

It's better if you write the names in #1 like this: Hans Zimmer & Benjamin Wallfisch

Likewise #12: Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
