Many of the band members posess talent that stretches beyond making music. Guitarist Adam Jones worked as a set designer on many big budget Hollywood films before he joined Tool and he still does all the artwork for the albums and creates all of their distrubing videos. The packaging is really really nice on this set. The DVD and CD come in a nice album that features some photos of the band playing live as well as some portraits. There are also some stills from each of the videos on the DVD.
The DVD menu is a little tricky at first but once you get the hang of it you won't be disappointed. Their dark and disturbing videos to Stinkfist, Aenema, Prison Sex and the classic Sober are all included and are in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround. Also included is the first video the band ever made and is the only video where all the band members appear. The sound on the videos is pretty good except for Aenema which tends to have too much reverb and sort of gets drowned out.
The CD has some great songs and showcases just how powerful the band is live.Read more ›
And so starts yet another successful outing from one of history's greatest bands. Tool's "Salival" (the name being derived from the diehards' nervous anticipation for the release of what would be "Lateralus" the next year) is much different than most band's live CD's or B-sides albums. And for that matter, much MUCH different than any other band's video catalogue; but therein lies the band's appeal and mysticism that has been attracting fans for ten fascinating years. But "Salival's" diversity and strangeness also make it more of a fan commodity than something that would appeal to the world at large (argueably because the world simply doesn't "get it"). This is not the disc that you will be handing your friend to introduce him or her to Tool. But for the faithful followers, this is quite a rewarding box set.
The DVD includes the four grotesque and symbolic Tool videos, something that hasn't been available to buy prior. The videos are mostly the brain-child of the multi-talented guitarist of the band, Adam Jones, who directed and created most of the scenes. "Prison Sex" puts to animation the painful story of Maynard's childhood abuse in chilling detail, while "Aenema" demonstrates symbols of God, psychological circumstances, and self-rigor. None of the videos displays Tools overall theme of realization better than the "Sober" video. Even though this was the eventual breakthrough for the band back in 1993, few stuck around to read into the message. The video showcases an old man in a desperate search for something the turns out to be sheerly imagined. And finally, "Stinkfist" is probably the most bizarre, revolting, unsettling, but insightful videos ever made.Read more ›
The has about 8 songs on it, some of them live, some of them new, and others that are reconstructions of old songs. With a trademark hidden song at the end of the cd, it is definately a cd to add to your TooL collection. The songs are full of TooL's best, with great lyrics complete with Maynard's wonderful voice.
The dvd/video has 4 videos on it, two from songs on "aenima" and two from songs on "undertow". The videos are "Prison sex", and "sober" (from undertow). And "stinkfist" and "aenima" (from Aenima). The videos are complete with TooL's strange cinematic characters, complete with strange little dolls, defigured humanoids, and puppetronics that rivel Jim Henson's muppets.
This is definately a must needed addition to anyone's TooL collection. The vidoes are great, the music is great, making it well worth the money to buy it.

I was very impressed by this album. The price is higher due to its rarity. The flow of music is very strict and different of a typical tool album. The DVD is a bonus. Read morePublished on Feb. 20 2004
