2 stars This is a very similar package to the Schism DVD, but the video is longer in length. It contains the intro "Parabol" and the actual song "Parabola" presented along with it's music video on this DVD + booklet in a digipak.

The video is more interesting than "Schism" and probably less disturbing, though it still is.

There's probably a hidden meaning or metaphor that means something, but for most of you, (and including me) it'll just look like pretentious modern art.

Like the Schism DVD, this has dual commentary and an extra version of the song.

The song is more mainstream sounding than Schism, so if you ignore the advice that this is only really for Tool fans who want to collect their extra material, then I'd choose this first over the Schism DVD.

Collectors / Fans only, though.
