When you make a music video these days people go down one of a few routes. Shock and awe, comical, going down the animated road also seems a popular choice as of late, but when a band such as The Mars Volta make not just a video, but a 15-minute monster for "The Malkin Jewel" they keep it elegantly simple. The video focuses on the band performing live which in itself is a spectacle large enough to grasp your attention for the full 15 minute. Kudos to them for doing it this way and being such a great performing band. (via SPIN.com).
