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.

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.

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.

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.

Tool videos tend to be dark, strange and incredibly ambiguous. This video is absolutely no different. A surround sound setup would definitely have been much cooler and the inane dual commentary is mostly annoying (but the nature of it is 100% Tool). For $7, I'm happy I purchased it. For those of you that bitch about having to pay cash for so little, the band offered the videos for free download on their main web page for a very long time prior to this release. Get over yourselves.

I was hoping for an actual audio track of this remix of "Schism" by Lustmord, but in actuality, the remix is played over this strange animation. And the video for "Schism" is on this release as well with optional audio commentary from this guy from Jesus Lizard. Its okay, but not worth buying unless your some obsessed Tool freak.
