2 stars The reviews that already exist say enough about this boxset, so I will concentrate more on whether its worth buying or not.

I agree that the live performances are amazing but there are a lot of bootlegs around like tool's 2001 live in san diego with King Crimson for example. This boxset is surely not a good point for someone to start listening to tool. If you have never listened to tool's work you should try the more accessible opiate ep or undertow from their earlier work, or 10,000 days, their last release (so far). Their true masterpieces are Lateralus and Aenima which are much harder starting points though. Salival is really for those who have listened to all tool's work, love them, and want to have everything this band has released. However, this album includes an amazing cover of zeppelin's no quarter and some videos (which happen to be really great). You lied and merkaba are two pleasant tracks but nothing really special. The last track is some kind of a parody. Not really a track but a smart and funny ending to this boxset (though a bit boring).

I think tool is one of the best bands of our time and this boxset is a nice addition to a tool fan's collection, however, it is surely neither an excellent addition to any prog music collection nor essential. It's mostly for tool fans. Two stars....
