I haven't really listened to any music lately. The last album I obsessed over was TOOL's - Lateralus. Those guys are scary good at what they do. The lead singers side band did a great song for the movie "Constantine" and if you have the DVD the video is on there.
Video for song "Parabola" from same album : http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2070749270984825204&q=tool&hl=en
all of the special effects for the video were done by the bands guitar player useing stop motion. Also note the great deal of symbolism in the video and song, the band is into alchemy.
