tool: Schism
Release Date: December 20, 2005
Tool is definetly a one-of-a-kind band when it comes to their musical style. With their album Lateralus, they took sound production as their bible. The music video sounds just like the album version although the DVD does contain a remix version.

Sound: Tool is definetly a one-of-a-kind band when it comes to their musical style. With their album Lateralus, they took sound production as their bible. The music video sounds just like the album version although the DVD does contain a remix version by an artist who I believe is known as Lustmord. The remix is long and pretty cool. The sound quality is a lot better than trying to stream the video since I never got to see the video on TV. I would not recommend watching this video before sleeping, it will give you nightmares. // 9

Content: This is the DVD for the music video of Schism. The DVD is not really full of features but then again, it's a music video. Like I said before, it does have a remix. It does contain commentary that will make you laugh at times for its udder strange ideas. I was not expecting this much content for what I thought was supposed to be just a music video. // 8

Production Quality: The video is crazy, it will give you a trip. The visual effects with Tool's standard use of clay stopmotion techniques gives the video an eerie feel to it. There are also many things to watch for in the video that pertains to or references other songs on the album Lateralus. Following these little clues will give you a sense of understanding the whole concept of this album or just how you want to see it. // 10

Overall Impression: This DVD goes well with the DVD Tool released of Parabola. The music video is obviously the most impressive thing on this DVD but the remix is good to sleep to. The case has some cool artwork too. If it were lost or stolen I wouldn't need to buy it again, since I have the video memorized, however I would beat the guy who stole it. But there is always youtube. // 10
