This CD/VHS set was a stop gap between 'Aenima' and 'Lateralus', and consists of a CD featuring live and rare tracks, as well as a video containing the bands ambitious, biazzare and at times grotesque music videos (now sadly out dated due to the release of videos from the 'Lateralus' album). This is an essential live document for Tool fans, for the versions of some of the songs featured here surpass the originals in places. The live version of 'Third Eye', the 13 minute epic from 'Aenima' is imbued with far more atmosphere than the original, has a different sample at the start (Timothy Leary on freedom of thought), and is simply required listening for fans. 'Pushit' is also revamped, with a slower, more thoughtful opening, lengthy bong-drum interlude and alternative lyrics. Elsewhere on the disc, we have 'Part of Me' live, which is the discs weak point, as one feels a better song could have been selected for inclusion. Also, the song is very little changed from the studip recording: hardly a new criticism of live material, but when viewed against the quality of the other material here it is a severe defect. A version of Led Zeppelin's 'No Quarter' surfaces finally here, which is thankful, as Tool do a fine job of making the classic song their own. A cover of 'You Lied' by Peach (Justin Chancellor's previous outfit) is very welcome, as is the hidden track towards the end of the album, which I would urge the listener to discover for themselves. Overall the disc is very strong.
The VHS suffers immediately from being out of date, but this does not diminish the quality of the videos included. For those who have never seen a Tool video I am unable to explain their merits here: Adam Jones is evidently a genius in my eyes, but the nightmare imagery is unlikely to appeal to everyone.
This is an essential commodity for Tool fans, but for the casual listener there will be very little of interest here. For this reason I do recommend this set highly, but only to the initiated.

To put it bluntly, the video in this boxed set is worth your [money] all by itself. Containing all 4 of Tool's major release video's, there isn't much to disappoint you here. If you're a fan of claymation, stop-motion animation, or anything by artists such as the Quay brothers, you'll love this. The video itself comes in interesting packaging similar to the outside box, and contains the videos for "AEnema", "Stinkfist", "Prison Sex", and "Sober", not to mention the amazingly well-crafted, animated introduction. The only real complaint about the VHS version is the fact that it doesn't contain the video for "Hush", off of Tool's first EP, "Opiate", which is included on the DVD.
The music videos themselves are just as haunting and thought-provoking as any of Tool's music. It's interesting that Tool can make a video with so much brilliance and depth, but also, noticeably, that the band never appears in the videos. (Except for a brief flash during "Sober".) It's also a shame that the producers of the video didn't feel it necessary to include any live footage, interviews with the band, fans, or anything of the like, on either the VHS or DVD. Nonetheless, they are both worth well over what you paid for them.
As for the CD, it just puts the final touches on the whole set. The majority of the album is live, and the usual explosive and amazing sound of Tool's live performance skill is captured, all without losing the sound quality due to crowd screams, as is done on some live albums. All the live performances on the album have the sound quality of a studio recording, but have a very live feel to them.

"Think for yourself. Question authority...."
And so starts yet another successful outing from one of history's greatest bands. Tool's "Salival" (the name being derived from the diehards' nervous anticipation for the release of what would be "Lateralus" the next year) is much different than most band's live CD's or B-sides albums. And for that matter, much MUCH different than any other band's video catalogue; but therein lies the band's appeal and mysticism that has been attracting fans for ten fascinating years. But "Salival's" diversity and strangeness also make it more of a fan commodity than something that would appeal to the world at large (argueably because the world simply doesn't "get it"). This is not the disc that you will be handing your friend to introduce him or her to Tool. But for the faithful followers, this is quite a rewarding box set.
The DVD includes the four grotesque and symbolic Tool videos, something that hasn't been available to buy prior. The videos are mostly the brain-child of the multi-talented guitarist of the band, Adam Jones, who directed and created most of the scenes. "Prison Sex" puts to animation the painful story of Maynard's childhood abuse in chilling detail, while "Aenema" demonstrates symbols of God, psychological circumstances, and self-rigor. None of the videos displays Tools overall theme of realization better than the "Sober" video. Even though this was the eventual breakthrough for the band back in 1993, few stuck around to read into the message. The video showcases an old man in a desperate search for something the turns out to be sheerly imagined. And finally, "Stinkfist" is probably the most bizarre, revolting, unsettling, but insightful videos ever made.
