Format: DVD
This DVD is great thing. It includes a video of the song Schism, the video with commentary and a remix of the song by Lustmord. The video, as with all of Tool's things in my opinion is intriguing and done very well, a trip for the mind, but a good one none the less. I won't say too much about what is in the video so that you can see for yourself, but it is done beautifully. The commentary is quite funny too though I didn't think he gave any real insight on the video except for a few sentences but he more or less told you what you were watching and rambled on, as with Parabol(a) I laughed out loud at points when he said some things. The remix by Lustmord is also incredible. It stacks up at about 20 minutes but it is still amazing to listen to, not feeling like they are dragging the song on or anything. The added in sounds and music make it wonderful while still keeping the original Tool I know and love. I highly, HIGHLY reccommend this DVD in partner with the Parabol(a) DVD, especially if you are a fan.

This review is essentially a copy of my review for the "Parabola" DVD...
I've seen the video, back in 2001 when it was floating around the internet after its few appearances on MTV and MuchMusic. I already had a VHS recording of this and the video for Parabola, thanks to a cable-TV-endowed friend.
Just what the hell is this DVD supposed to offer me?? I mean, gee whiz Tool, thanks for the re-release of your video (no 5.1 to be found, I see... *shakes head) with another "commentary track" by your smart-assed, uninformative weed hook-up, Jello Biafra. At first, I thought the simul-cast dual-commentary idea (there's one playing out the left channel, another out the right, at the same time) was an innovative and amusing concept... if this disc's commentary is anything like the Parabola disc, then I'm glad I haven't wasted my money on another P.O.S. pre-album filler release.
Advice? Send a message and just don't buy it. This release, as well as the equally barren "Parabol[a]" DVD and the minimal, out-of-print-but-I-don't-care DVD/VHS "Salival" will serve as a warning sign (perhaps intentional some say, but to what end?) that not everything with Tool's name on it should be assumed to be in the same league as their albums, which are genious.
My apologies to the band if they had little or no involvement in the production of these frisbees. I fell for the Parabola one, but you won't see me picking up "Schism". I wouldn't advise anyone else to, either.

I love Tool, but with no new material for the last 5 years, this should've been much better. The remix is unecessary and uneventful and the video isn't even mixed in 5.1 audio. The commentary is a big joke and most of it has nothing to do with TOOL. The disc is lacking in content and Tool: Schism should've been included on this instead of being sold as a separate item. This is either a cash grab or appeasing of a label commitment to release material. Wait for the live disc.

HASH(0xa446c6fc) out of 5 stars Not bad but.... Feb. 8 2006
By Sveet Pornastacio - Published on
Format: DVD
For $7 bucks, it is well worth it to own this DVD, however I would have gladly paid more for surround sound. The Salival box set videos are enhanced with surround sound and it makes a whole world of difference. The Schism video is a typical TOOL video, mirroring the concept of the song with the struggle of disconnection between the two "beings" and eventually the combining of the two to form one tortured being. The end of the video climaxes with an amazing fire sequence that fits perfectly with the thunderous ending of the song leaving you a bit stunned for a second. The claymation in this video seems a bit weak and out of place, compared to past efforts. Much like the Parabol(a) disc, the commentary is slightly entertaining, but more annoying than anything, however this remix is quite superior to the parabola remix. Lustmord isolates the instruments primarily Justin bass, and it gives a unique spin on the song. Overall it seems as though this was a rushed product, and maybe it was put out to satisfy a contract obligation, which may explain why there were two seperate DVD's released at the same time, when they clearly could have fit both Schism and Parabol(a) on one disc. My true dissapointment lies with the lack of surround sound, which fails to parallel the eye-opening visuals created by Adam Jones and Grey. Visually this rates a 5 and the audio rates a 2.

HASH(0xa446c750) out of 5 stars A wonderful video, thoughtful remix, and disappointing commentary. March 14 2006
By J. Chandler - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is an all-around worthwhile purchase for any Tool fan who appreciated what the band did with the spiritually overt Lateralus. The music video, directed as usual by guitarist Adam Jones and featuring interpretive dance duo Osseus Labyrint, really does enhance the song in many ways and open up many new paths of understanding for the critical eye of a Tool fan or aesthetically appreciative newcomer. Brian Lustmord's remix track is also worthwhile if you have learned to be patient with the music and open your mind to it, rather than covering it up with culturally-reniforced expectations. It is in many ways much more like a prayer than a song; you must surrender yourself to it to understand. Once you do, you will find the reward. (Those of you who have listened to it all the way through will know what I'm saying--it's a feeling perfectly characterized in so many parts of the remix, like the moment when Justin Chancellor's melancholic bass chords, which normally introduce the song, finally resonate on a quieted piano.) The dual commentary, however, is a real nuisance, not because it isn't unflinchingly stoic or compelling, but because the humorous route that was chosen for it simply doesn't work. It might be good for two or three chuckles; you'll never visit it more than once per commentary side. But besides that rather useless appendage, this DVD is a great addition to a Tool fan's collection as a means of further exploring the band's art and ideas.

HASH(0xa446ca2c) out of 5 stars We want more Tool(s)! Feb. 23 2006
By Repotsearch - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Not completely satisfied with this DVD. Pakaging and content are great. However, this video along with the Parabola DVD release should have been included in a new 2-DVD set with all the Tool videos and and live DVD. Not that this may not already be in the works for the future but, with 2 non-lp remix tracks that make their first appearance on the DVDs and nowhere else, it leaves fans wanting more.

HASH(0xa446c924) out of 5 stars The Images Stick with You Nov. 30 2009
By S. Schroetke - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is one of my all-time favorite Tool songs, so I'm sure that I'm a little biased. The video is great and does justice to the song. The costuming and make-up work very well and the visuals really do stick with you.

I've read reviews where Maynard says that he writes lyrics based on how the music moves him, while Adam makes the video based on the music as opposed to Maynard's lyrics. I suppose this could be the case, but the images certainly do evoke a sense of struggling within a relationship, as Maynard's lyrics seem to also suggest.

The video is sparse, not much for background, which makes sense because the two characters in relationship are the focal point. Watching the video a few times, then put it away for a while before coming back to it. This is the best way to approach the experience that is Tool. Experience something totally different after you've done some work on yourself and a whole new world will open up.

While I do really enjoy this video, I'm still partial to the videos for Sober and Prison Sex. No, I'm not one of those who clings to the Old Tool, but those videos were amazing, dark and really hit my emotional center more than this one does.
