  • I’ll start off with saying the video for Parabola is very interesting (as are all of Tool’s videos) and that is why I was compelled to get this DVD. I wanted the video for my own collection and was also excited to see the “bonus features.”

    The only good thing I can say other than what I just did is that this was bought for me as a present, so I didn’t waste any money on it.

    Now to the bad. You have a menu that gives you the option of the video, a remix of the song, and the commentary. I decided to try the remix first. Most. Boring. Thing. Ever. My boyfriend and I were watching it, and for like, the first three or four minutes it’s basically nothing, then it changes a tiny bit, making us think it would actually get good, and then it ends. We were pretty disappointed. But not to worry! We still can watch the commentary and get an insightful look into the video and what it’s about! NO. As someone else described him, it’s some jerk-off who has no business commenting on anything Tool does because based off what he says in the commentary (e.g. “here come the grapes of doom”) I find it hard to believe he even understands any of their songs. In summation, I thought this would be cool to have being a hardcore Tool fan, but you really shouldn’t bother. You end up irritated at how big a disappointment it is.

  • …yet Highly overpriced. Parabola is probably TOOL’s best music video in my opinion , and no doubt it probably took weeks to film and edit the video , but there is no way that one music video is worth 10 dollars. Not to mention that the special features..if you can call them that..are extremely lacking. The commentary is horribly boring..and the remix is completely awful. It would have served them better to release a DVD with all of their music videos on one disc…or even if they included a live video of Parabola on the DVD in addition to the music video. Overall , an amazing video..but not worth the money.

  • It was cool, but I don’t think it was worth 10 bucks. I feel kinda ripped off that there was only the video and the remix. If you’e on a limited budget like me, I do not recommend it.

  • This doesnt deserve 1 star. I spent 20 bucks on this and the schism cd. And what do you get? Nothing. One video…not even all of the videos they’ve made on the cd…just one. Oh but then, you get the joy of listening to comentary with some jerk-off, who has nothing interesting or valuable to say about anything “I remember one time I had a beer with tool. Neat.”
    But then you get to listen to the remix…which sounds like somthing a highschool student could have put together.
    Tool has been my favorite band for quite some time now, and I’d just like to thank them for crapping all over their fanbase by releasing this garbage. Download 2 of their music videos and you’ll have more than this dvd can offer.

  • I desperately wanted this and Schism when I discovered they would be made available to the average joe. Tool is a band I consider my favorite and thus far, I have yet to be disappointed by any of their releases. Salival was interesting and somewhat satisfying for completists or die-hard fans. It was unfulfilling as I wanted more like a better DVD menu layout and maybe more songs like b-sides and more live stuff. Regardless, I was excited to get more Tool with Parabola and Schism. I have always thought that Lateralus warranted more than two videos, but whatever. I could at least get what was available.

    Boy, was I disappointed when I made it home. I watched the videos, tried to watch the commentary (but became bored) and listened to the overlong, repetitive remixes. If the remixes were available on CD and the videos on a seperate DVD in one package for 10 bucks I would have been a little more satisfied. Instead, I dropped 20 bucks on something I will never watch or listen to again. For those who were disappointed by the lack of material available on the filler; Salival, you will feel even more cheated. I don’t think Tool was even involved in the process of creating these sets. I can’t sit here like some people and rave about how amazing this set is or how Tool came through again. I honestly loathe these releases and I am frankly appauled at the value.
