4.6 out of 5 stars
Salival + Dvd
Format: Audio CD|Change

on 11 June 2003
Although this DVD only contains five music videos taken from the "Opiate E.P." "Undertow" and "Ænema" (pronounced Onoma aparrently), they are of amazing quallity, and the acompanying songs are equally awsome. The video for "Hush" is "hidden" and is the worst of the videos included. The best is easily "Ænima", nearly seven minutes of animation combined with live action, I've never seen water used in stop motion so well. With confermation of a live DVD showcasing the bands amazing live performances this DVD is absolutly essention for any music fan with an open mind, and the CD with 74 minutes of live and unreleased studio material is a good bonus, and well worth the price alone.

Despite having a couple of shortcomings, this DVD's high points more than deem it worthy of 5 stars. Inside the sumptuously packaged box, you get a small book full of glossy artwork(Of a very high standard, but then this is Tool we're talking about...), the DVD itself which has all their videos pre-Schism, and a CD absolutely stuffed with live tracks and rareties.
The DVD itself is slightly disappointing, because it simply has only 5 music videos on it. However, the videos that are on it('Sober', 'Prison Sex', 'Stinkfist' and 'Aenema') are presented in all their amazing 5.1 surround sound, fullscreen glory. Also included is the quite silly unseen video for 'Hush'. The CD is the best part of this limited release, it's well over 70 minutes long and is essential for any Tool fan-it includes Led Zepellin and Peach covers, and the live songs are amazing, as well as being quite different from the originals.
So basically essential for any Tool fans, the only real drawback is that the DVD should have had a bit more on it.

If your looking at this you most probably alreay know what your going to get. For those who don't this is the most intelligent spiritual band on this rock we call earth. This package is spilit in to a dvd of all of Tool's videos pre Schism, and a live and rare cd. The videos are the best rock videos you'll ever see, created by the guitarist adam jones. They are meanigful, enigmatic and of course witty. The cd is a brillent collection of the bands works. Ranging from the epic third eye to the hilarious maynard's dick, with Peach and Led Zepplin covers thrown in. If you haven't figured it out this is an essential purchase from an essential band. Remember the band's mantra believe in nothing (apart from this review!!!!!!)

The videos are just awesome! Please, do me a favor and try to understand the meaning of these videos because Tool have really something to say, they don't shoot this kind of videos just because they seem cool! My personal favourite is prison sex.

The whole packaging, booklet and DVD menus are also so great.

The audio CD, hmmm... Here things get weird. First of all, Tool's mayor mistake was to put Third eye as the first track. This song was meant to be the final track on every cd, live cd, compilation etc. Don't get me wrong, the performance is great, it's the position of the track that annoys me. And of course the song is GREAT!

Part of me is totally useless here and out of place. I like this song but the live version has nothing more to offer than the studio version, so this track shouldn't be here.

Pushit is an alternate live version of AEnima's Pushit. It's great but still, not so great as the original one. After all AEnima is PERFECT, how could it be more perfect? Still, totally worth listening to this version.

Message to Harry Manback 2 is also a slightly different version than the original in Aenima but not so good since they replaced the piano part with violins I think, and the result is not too great.

You Lied is a Peach cover (previous Justin's band, check out their very good record) definitely better than the original and a very good song overall.

Merkaba is just a mixture of weird sounds that Tool tend to use at lives, it's nice to listen to but don't expect anything too great.

No Quarter is my album's favorite. These guys got Led Zeppelin's classic and totally changed it to fit to their sound. It also has a great extended ending with a great guitar riff added by Tool. Totally worth listening to this one.

LAMC is an automated answering machine speech or something with an annoying Tool riff at the background repeating itself for 10 minutes or so. You won't listen to this track more than 3 times, believe me. It shouldn't be here.

Maynard's Dick starts off after LAMC ends unfortunately and you can't listen to it directly. It's a good song I guess but not Tool at all! It kind of reminds me the Opiate hidden track, The gapping lotus experience I think it's called. It's nice to hear an other side of Tool!

Overall there are some tracks on the cd totally worth listeing to but the album lacks continuity.

Over-overall the Salival 'box set' is worth buying for Tool fans (and not only hard-core) but I don't think that the rest of the fans will appreciate it that much.
