Salival

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Between legal battles and digressions like Maynard James Keenan's stint in A Perfect Circle, it's been a long time since fans had a chance to sink their teeth into a new offering from this unflaggingly mercurial combo. This audio-visual compendium -- designed to serve as a taster for Tool's still-pending studio return -- turns the difficult trick of raiding the vaults while maintaining a palpable sense of freshness. On the CD component of Salival -- which is housed in a hardbound book laden with artwork but light on information -- the band indulge their tendency to sprawl, for better and worse. The comparatively concise "Merkaba" often heard in concert as the extended ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Between legal battles and digressions like Maynard James Keenan's stint in A Perfect Circle, it's been a long time since fans had a chance to sink their teeth into a new offering from this unflaggingly mercurial combo. This audio-visual compendium -- designed to serve as a taster for Tool's still-pending studio return -- turns the difficult trick of raiding the vaults while maintaining a palpable sense of freshness. On the CD component of Salival -- which is housed in a hardbound book laden with artwork but light on information -- the band indulge their tendency to sprawl, for better and worse. The comparatively concise "Merkaba" often heard in concert as the extended intro to "Sober" oozes forward in an impressively ethereal manner, while the live version of "Third Eye" snaps through a whiplash-inducing series of twists and turns. An extended, alternate take on "Message to Harry Manback," on the other hand, won't be of use to any but the most die-hard of fans. In terms of eye candy -- or eye pokes, depending on your tolerance for Tool's often-disturbing visual imagery -- Salival also has plenty to offer, in the form of a visual component available on DVD or VHS that collects all four of their most widely screened clips, notably "Prison Sex" and "├ćnema." The DVD version actually includes a fifth video for "Hush Up" from the 1992 EP Opiate. The whole shebang is outfitted in a surreal-looking package that, with the exception of a subdued "Tool" on the outermost layer, contains nary a word of warning about what lies within. That shouldn't scare off fans, however, and novices willing to take the plunge might be surprised as to how intriguing the innards actually are.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
After a four-year hiatus, Tool returns with the elaborately packaged Salival set, which includes a 70-minute CD of previously unreleased live and studio material, a 56-page book of photos and video stills, and a DVD collection of the group's impressive stop-motion videos. Live versions of "Part of Me," "Push It," and "Third Eye" reaffirm the band's standing as one of alternative metal's most compelling live acts; unreleased studio tracks such as "Message to Harry Manback II" and "L.A. Municipal Court" definitely sound like abandoned material, but offer a look at Tool's quirkier side. Covers of Led Zeppelin's "No Quarter" and "You Lied" -- a song by bassist Justin Chancellor's previous group Peach -- round out the disc's better-than-average selection of odds and sods. Salival's intricate, eclectic look and sound give it the feel of a "thank you" to patient Tool fans; fortunately for them -- and the band -- it was worth the wait.

    Great

    The live versions of ''Third Eye'' and ''Push it'' are unbelievable! Tool's version of ''No Quarter'' is better than Led Zepplin's. The quality of the sound on the live songs is incredible.

    Nice Move

    Ex-Tool guitarist Adam Jones has appeared in over 16 movies as an actor, including Opiate [EP] (1992), Undertow (1993), and Aenima (1996) to name a few, as well as performing with Tool in the metal documentary of VHS, DVD and CD Set of Salival (2000). The songs that are previously unreleased from Salival are the lost tapes 1989-1999 with ¿You Lied¿ ¿Merkaba¿ ¿No Quarter¿ ¿Lame¿ ¿Lamc¿ and ¿Maynard¿s Dick¿ and that¿s it.

    What can I say? It's Tool...

    Finally, after more than 4 long years, Tool has given us something to whet our appetites with, and it really delivers. Opening with a live version of ''Third Eye'', even more powerful than it's astounding studio predecessor, you immediately know the wait was worth it. The intro was completely reworked for the live performance, and fans that know what the song is really about will appreciate that it's a sample of none other than Dr. Timothy Leary. Then we have ''Pus**t.'' I really don't know if I can express the beauty of this song with words. Emotional, heart-wrenching, and completely new (it doesn't sound like the ''Aenima'' version until about 8 minutes into the song), it will leave the listener feeling vulnerable and open, tearing out your painful memories of rejection and acceptance and the love that accompanies those feelings. A version of Led Zeppelin's ''No Quarter'' is here (it's a studio track) and it's just as amazing as ''Pus**t'' and ''Third Eye.'' You can really see where Tool draws their influences from on that one. The rest of the album is good as well, if you're Tool fan. If you're one of those stilted, ''I know what rock n' roll really is'' rock critics, you probably won't find much here that appeals to you because it's ''too arty,'' or ''too self-indulgent.'' Whatever. Fans of Tool will definetely want this and will appreciate it for it's true beauty. Don't forget, it comes with all of Tool's groundbreaking and incredible videos. Well worth the price. I had to put asteriks in ''Pus**t'' because BN.com said I was using ''inappropriate language.'' Sorry about that...
