Review by Conor Fynes
PROG REVIEWER
2 stars 'Parabola' - Tool (Single)

'Lateralus' had a few really great songs on it, such as 'The Patient' and 'Schism.' There were also songs, like this that I could never get into. It's decent hard rock, but it doesn't have that sense of creativity and innovation that a band like Tool should be doing. The video, on the other hand is one of the strangest videos I've ever seen, and even scary at times.

'Parabola' isn't terrible, but it doesn't give me that feeling of 'never having heard something like this before' that I've felt a suprising number of times from this band. The things I love about Tool are always the sonic nuances and clarity the music brings, but 'Parabola' doesn't really work out too be too much more to me than a hard rock song accompanied with an overdose of guitar sludge.

1 stars Not a good release from tool. It's not even for tool fans. This release consists of: 1) A video of parabol/parabola (two amazing songs from their masterpiece "Lateralus") which is really good. Adam Jones and Alex Gray did a fine work here. 2) A remix of the song which is around 11 minutes an ... (read more)

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 disturbin ... (read more)

5 stars Ok, I am not reviewing this based on its price, but the quality of the music video within. If you pay for it, realize it is only a 9 minute music video, some commentary, and an ambient remix of the song. I consider the video to be Adam Jones' best work as a director. It combines live action ... (read more)
