First of all, welcome to the board.
Now, if you want to read THE best Thor stories of all time, then you need to get Thor: Visionaries by Walt Simonson, volumes 1-4. Walt's run is considered by me and probably 95% of all Thor fans as THE definitive Thor run. You won't be disappointed.
Also, Mike Oeming's run was excellent as well, but I don't think it's been collected. I could be wrong though.

"Want to see the size of my love?"
Ascend the winding path outside of Jerusalem.
Follow the dots of bloody dirt until you crest the hill.
Before looking up, pause and hear me whisper,
"This is how much I love you" . . . Jesus on the cross.
