Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Here's the problem that faced Jack Black and Kyle Gass when it came to making The Pick Of Destiny: how do you top your last effort, 2001's self-titled debut, when it contained the tale of how you wrote (and then forgot) "the best song in the world" ("Tribute")? A toughie, but if you're megalomaniacal comedy-rock duo Tenacious D, anything is possible - even if it contravenes plain logic and several laws of physics. A pumped-up hard rock opera that sees Black and Gass hunting for the eponymous guitar-plucker, the possession of which confers superhuman rocking abilities on its owner, The Pick Of Destiny both rocks hard – how could it not, with Dave Grohl behind the drumkit? – and rocks funny. The opening "Kickapoo" is an operatic scene-setter that features guest spots from both Meat Loaf (whose vocals, curiously, sound restrained next to Black's goofy rock howl) and ex-Sabbath man Ronnie James Dio, who imparts some secret wisdom in the arts of rocking. Other highlights come with "Classico", which recreates Mozart and Bach with added swear words, and "The Government Totally Sucks", which (as you might expect) makes up in passion what it lacks in insight. A comedy record, in other words, you'll actually want to listen to.--Louis Pattison

Product Description

The time draws near when the titans of rock will give rise to the mother of all soundtracks, an album that will become the center of the sonic solar system, the album that is The Pick Of Destiny. Jack Black and Kyle Glass, those gods of rock that together form the power-metal duo Tenacious D, have achieved the greatest album of all time - a history-making, world-shaking soundtrack that will rock your very soul. One can expect nothing but hell-fire rocking from a team that has worked with president Satan as their films executive producer on the New Line cinema film Tenacious D in the Pick Of Destiny starring Jack & Kyle. If the Ds 2001 eponymous debut sold nearly 2 million albums worldwide & is platinum in the US, the greatest record ever created must surely exceed these numbers by about a gazillion. Explicit version has a 3D cover. 15 brand new songs along with dialog from the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Awesome Album in the World... 20 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
OK, first up - buy the deluxe version. It's worth it. When they say "deluxe", they mean it. It's a nod to Alice Cooper's 70's "packs". Not ONLY do you get a gorgeous "book-effect" box to tear the cellophane off, it has lots of goodies inside. There's a holographic CD case, a D poster. There are 8 (count 'em!) D Tarot Cards, where they take classic Tarot ideas, and make them their own, with D-themed artwork, and an interpretation card, so if you been following Ben Franklin's example (listen to "The Government Totally Sucks" and go with me here...) you can even do some fun readings.

That's not all.

Oh no, my friend, that's not all.

The box is foam-lined... and includes.... you guessed it...

THE PICK OF DESTINY.

Fun gimmicks, and these make it worth the extra £4 for the deluxe version, and more.

OK, so onto the songs.

1. Kickapoo: this is the scene-setter for the beginning of the movie. JB is living with his dad (Meatloaf) who's a crazy-ass reverend believing that rock'n'roll comes from the devil. Little does he know. Amazingly catchy, and changes feel a few times, as the guest lyricists join in using their own distinctive styles. Dio and Meatloaf send themselves up amazingly, and show they can kick back and just do it for the love. Oh yeah, and the royalties...

2. Classico. A song devoted to how wonderful KG is, set to the tune of Mozart. Classic, in every way.

3. Baby. A lonely, soulful tune, that devolves seamlessly into a screaming tot. Very clever indeed!

4. Destiny. OK. 37 seconds of filler with no point at all. Not even amusing, which would let them off. Bad call, guys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Greatness in 1/2 an hour 13 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
I randomly walked into Virgin today and saw this album on the shelf, not realising it was already out, so I picked it up instantly and saw it had 15 tracks and thought "Great!"

Dont get me wrong, the songs our great, however, I felt slightly annoyed to find out it's only 33 minutes long. But at the same time, it is well worth it. There is some great material on here, I wouldnt rate it as high as their first album, but I am pretty damn pleased with this new one.

The length of the album prevents it from reaching 5 stars, but it's really great to hear Jables and Kage back at it again.

They've even stuck the History of Tenacious D on here, titled "History" on the album, which I was pretty happy about!

4 out of 5 but damn good nonetheless!

5.0 out of 5 stars Far better than their last album 3 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
I disagree with most of the Tenacious D fans on this site. I think this album is far better than their first one. The first one was more of a comedy album whereas this one rocks and has the comedy element as well.

Brilliant riffs and melodies that'll definitely grow on you.

'The Metal' is one of my favourites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant soundtrack! 15 Nov 2006
By André
Format:Audio CD
I read the other review, and yes, this album is very short, but it's not even a full album, it's just a soundtrackfor the film! It's just like any other movie soundtrack, with songs that appear on the movie.

The songs that are actually on it are brilliant! There's a good mix of heavy (The Metal, Car Chase City), soft (Baby, Dude), funny (Kickapoo, Bellzeboss) and just plain amazing (Master Exploder, POD).

This SOUNDTRACK is great, and is must-buy, and I can't wait to see the film!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - Excellent - Short but sweet 18 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
Reading previous reviews many D fans are 'disappointed' -

Lets get one thing straight this album rocks - but probably isn't as good as their debut -

Bear in mind however, this is a movie soundtrack - and until we've seen the movie to put the songs in context the album probably won't make much sense - There are a few dialogue clips at the end of certain tracks to link the songs together -

Listening to the album you can imagine what the story of the film will be and in turn how jables and rage kage go from living at home with their father (meat loaf) pray to dio for guidance and eventually have a duel with Beelzebub (this track is hilarious) - to obtain the pick of destiny and become the greatest rocks stars of all time.

Musically the album is much better than the first and the songwriting is far better - most noticeably Jack's voice is also clearer, richer and attempts (very successfully) various styles of vocal acrobatics.

This album is NOT like their debut - which was a much more live feeling tongue in cheek album exploring various rock, metal and prog styles..

I must say again - this is a MOVIE SOUNDTRACK! Bear this in mind, listen to it in context - and imagine how awesome the movie's going to be -

Tenacious D rock - can't wait to see them live in a few weeks - and indeed match this excellently crafted, variety laden soundtrack to the action in the movie..

John K, Bolton..

Track Breakdown -

1) 'Kickapoo' - A very 'tenacious d' start - acoustic guitar - four minute prog montage featuring meatloaf as jb's father and DIO..
