    I reckon his best ones are Window Licker, also by Aphex Twin

    and All is Full of Love by Bjork

    I also like Michel Gondry, great vids like Chemical Brothers' Star Guitar

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIJ34wPUKSY

    Also Alex & Martin's vid for white stripes' 7 Nation Army

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VutMLnjXTY4

    Also liked Jonathan Glazers vid for Jamiroquai's Virtual Insanity (not too great a fan of the music though, I'd rather listen to Stevie Wonder, but this is a great video)

    Yeah I was gonna put the around the world video, but for some reason went for Star Guitar?

    Spike Jonze is a sick music video director, and he's done some real classics, Sabotage anyone? His ideas are great but his attention to detail can be a little shoddy - it's like he's always got his mind on what his next project is gonna be before he's finished this one...

    He's definately up there with the best, but he's not next level amazing like Gondry or Cunnigham... However, he can make feature films, skate videos, promo's all sorts of things. wheras Cunnigham doesn't have that kind of versatility...

    Are Cunningham's best years behind him, or is this just because Warp records/Aphex Twin aren't at the top of their game anymore, what do you reckon?

    I've got all the Director's Label dvds, Michel Gondry, Chris Cunningham, Spike Jonze, etc. Wicked dvds if you even have the opportunity to buy them (y)


    I've got a bookmark folder of music videos, will post some when I get home from work.
