Editorial Reviews

Vicarious, the long awaited video from the Platinum album 10,000 Days. The DVD will include a documentary that takes viewers through the history of guitarist Adam Jones' visual effects work, as well as the process and people involved in the creation of the groundbreaking all-CGI video for Vicarious. The DVD will also include audio commentary by comedian David Cross and a video tour of Tool album cover artist Alex Grey's CoSM (Chapel of Sacred Mirrors) gallery in New York City.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tool share an incredible video and great extras December 19, 2007
Format:DVD
First, I don't see how people can complain that there is nothing new about a video that is being released for the first time! Where is the logic in that?

Now, to the actual review. The video for Vicarious is Tool's first entirely CG music video, running just a little longer than the length of the song of the same title on the 2006 album 10,000 Days [the extra length consists of ambient noise or silence, in terms of the audio track--the song has not been lengthened]. The video is very conceptual and well thought out by all counts, living up to Adam Jones' lofty legacy of directing and shaping Tool's surreal videos into deeply philosophical experiences. I won't take your time up here with any sort of analysis, but I will say that I recommend viewing the video repeatedly. For myself, the first time through I was aware of only a small fraction of what was going on in the video. Again, this is characteristic of most all Tool videos. One subtle thing that took me a long time to notice is the startling differences between the specters, and what their behavior is symbolic of. There are many such hidden gems in the video.

The extras on this DVD put the DVD singles for Parabola and Schism to shame. Foremost is "The Vicarious Documentary", directed by Camella Grace, documenting the creation of the video and revealing a lot of its hidden meanings. Some of the interviewees includes Alex Grey, Chet Zar, Kevin Willis, and many others, including much of the CG animation team from Hydraulx, who worked on the video. Alex Grey's comments are particularly revealing and it is great to see him make as long of an appearance as he does here. Pay attention to his comment about our culture.

Also included are two tracks of audio commentary set to the video, recorded by David Cross of Mr.

4.0 out of 5 stars THERE IS NO LIVE FOOTAGE December 16, 2007
By Bennet
Format:DVD
Just so people aren't mislead by 2 other reviews here, THERE IS NO LIVE FOOTAGE (like they would include Swamp Song on the Vicarious dvd!)...

BUT, this dvd is definitely worth buying. Apart from the Vicarious clip which is excellent, you get more bonus stuff than their previous dvd releases for Schism and Parabola. The "making of" runs for 40 minutes and is informative with lots of interviews with people that made Vicarious. It also helps explain why it has taken so long for this clip to be made. The commentary with David Cross is suitably silly and I enjoyed watching Alex Grey's COSM section.

If you're a fan of Tool's you no doubt would have bought this by now anyway, but for anyone who has seen a low quality copy on youtube do yourselves (and the band) a favour and do it justice by buying the dvd.

Oh one more thing - there is no live footage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tools shows much love for the fans once again December 23, 2007
Format:DVD
Well to start off I was thinking they were gonna show the vicarious video that is already been shown online. I was wrong, very wrong, the new video is a step up from previous Tool videos in technology and visual art. As in all Tool videos it makes unnerving visuals seem normal in Adam Jones's view of art. The extras are fantastic, their is a biography of the video and a nice background of Adam Jones's previous work on his art in some visuals for film and Tool albums. Also the feature CoSm is a display of a museum in New York inspired by Tool and art for 10,000 Days. The commentary for the video is by comedian David Cross, which is pretty funny as he pokes fun at himself and the visuals of the vicarious video. The packaging of the DVD comes with stereo scopic lenses to make Jones's art three dimensional as it was in 10,000 Days. All in all Tool has provided a great piece of work for fans to speculate and put on the shelves next to 10,000 Days.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only one video?? March 18, 2008
By lori
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a loyal long-time Tool fan, I was excited to see they had released a new DVD. The video on the disc was awesome and exciting to watch. I have always been impressed by the visual stylings the band chooses to accompany their music. What I was disappointed with, though, was the lack of other material on the disc. Specifically, I was expecting more videos. Instead, there was the actual music video and some making-of-type documentary footage. Very disappointing. I am not a person who objects to spending money on good quality items, but I must say I was angry with myself for spending $10 for a single video. How many times am I really going to break out this DVD to watch a single video? Tool has been known to add hidden footage to their DVDs and CDs, but do not expect to find anything here. For the die-hard Tool fan out there, I suppose this is a worthy purchase to add to one's collection. For most people, though, find a die-hard Tool fan and make friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Wait!!!!!!!!!!!! December 18, 2007
Format:DVD
I Purchased my copy yesterday and can confirm the video is in 3D, for those who say it isn't get your eyes checked. The music is presented in standard 2.0, and sounds clearer with more bass then the previous 2 music DVD's Tool released.
The packaging is similar to 10,000 days, it's presented in a thick cardboard 3 panel digipak with the 3D glasses attached to view the 4 separate art cards that are included, the inside panel has the skeleton from the video in 3D.
The features include a Documentary on people who know Adam and what work they have done with him, a Doco on Alex Gray' art Studio, and a 2 very funny commentary's.
Now the video itself, if you haven't seen it your missing out, it is absolutely stunning, the visuals are breathtaking in 3D, the colours and images jump out of your TV, (just wait until you see the 2 creatures slowly coming out of the mans eyes to see what I'm talking about) I was glued to the screen for the entire clip & with the Vicarious soundtrack it will just blow you away, this is what Tool fans have been waiting for... not worthy of a 5 star review id give it 100 if possible, this is a work of art!
BTW I haven't found any "live footage"

Wheres the live footage?
Maynard said that there will never be a live show released. He said it takes away from being at the real thing. Thats why there has never been a live dvd released.
