I've been listening to a lot of Porcupine Tree recently, particularly Deadwing and In Absentia, but some of the live albums too. Other than that, I heartily recommend The Mechanisms if you're looking for something different -- they're a musical cabaret who take characters from mythology/children's stories/science fiction and set them in far off futuristic worlds. They have a few albums out: 'Once Upon a Time (In Space)' - a story about a mad king (Old King Cole) creating a clone army from his most fearsome warrior (Rose Red), while her sister (Snow White) leads a rebellion against him. 'Ulysses Dies At Dawn' - A tale about Ulysses, their troubled past with Poseidon Industries, an encounter with Heracles, Orpheus, Oedipus and Ariadne, and an elaborate scheme by Hades. 'High Noon Over Camelot' - The story of a railgun welding gunslinger called Arthur, who takes control over a large sector of an ancient space station with his Pendragon crew, only to be led on a mad quest by an old preacher called Galahad to retrieve an artifact known only as the grail. 'The Bifrost Incident' - An investigation by the New Midgard Transport Police into the reappearance of the Ratatoskr Express, a train designed to traverse worlds via the Bifrost, but which disappeared during it's maiden voyage over 80 years ago, along with the ruling elite of Asgard.
They have a few other songs, which mostly cover the band members personas. 'Gunpowder Tim vs. The Moon Kaiser' is a particularly good one. Check them out here: https://themechanisms.com/
