is a limited edition Salival box set in CD/ VHS and CD/ DVD formats released in 2000 by American rock band Tool. It includes a 56-page book of photos and stills from their music videos.
Content [ edit ]
The track "You Lied" is a
cover of a song by bass player Justin Chancellor's previous band Peach. The cover of Led Zeppelin's " No Quarter" was originally recorded for the soundtrack of , but Tool subsequently decided against allowing it to be used, leading to criticism from Private Parts Howard Stern, who had previously endorsed the band. .
"Message to Harry Manback II", "No Quarter", and "LAMC" were recorded during the sessions for Ænima though they were slightly re-recorded before being released on Salival.
Packaging [ edit ]
The front of the booklet included with the package has a small glossy square on its front. Live versions of the
tracks "Pushit" and "Third Eye" appear on this box set plus a live version of the Ænima song "Part of Me". The instrumental song "Merkaba" was originally an intro for " Opiate Sober" when played live, however no tracks from appear here in live form. The name "Merkaba" is a reference to the Undertow Merkabah school of Jewish mysticsm as it relates to new age meditation. [8 ]
Upon initial release, the package came with two stickers on the cover; one announcing that the "new studio album" was due to arrive in stores on April 17, 2001, which happened to be Maynard's birthday, though it was ultimately pushed back a month. The other sticker, a
Parental Advisory, would be the last one to appear on a Tool release.
Rumors and leaks [ edit ]
As with other releases, there were rumors during the
Salival period. Most notably, the band was said to be breaking up. [9 ] [10 ] Maynard James Keenan said, "we mentioned some song titles and some dickhead went out and reserved all of the .com and .org names." [11 ]
