Editorial Reviews

Rize of the Fenix is the third album from Tenacious D and is the follow-up to 2006's gold The Pick of Destiny and 2001's platinum debut album Tenacious D.

Produced by the brilliant John Kimbrough, Rize Of The Fenix was recorded in the garage behind his LA home and features Jack Black and Kyle Gass (Tenacious D's core duo), performing with Dave Grohl (drums), John Spiker (bass, piano, organ) and John Konesky (electric guitar). The album was engineered and mixed by John Spiker who has been touring with the band for years.

From their concentrated effort emerged thirteen profoundly evocative tracks, the making of which the band describes as a "journey similar to that of Gandolph in The Lord of the Rings." When the ill received Pick of Destiny movie failed to strike box office gold, it virtually stripped away the duos rock god stature overnight. "There we no more bouncers waving us through the velvet ropes, we were persona non gratta" said singer Jack Black. Kyle Gass added, "There we were- just like Gandolph the grey, down in the muck- but we never gave up, We defeated our own personal demons and began chipping away, slowly climbing back to the land of the living-when we emerged we were no longer the old Tenacious D, we were Gandolph the white, with new powers and wisdom and bravery and skills."

Rize of the Fenix was recorded over the past six years as Tenacious D went back to their roots. "We recorded down and dirty in a friend's garage with a shoestring budget of 600 dollars, much like Nirvana's first album "Bleach"-or the Beatles first album "Help". Rough and yet a masterpiece."

IN SHORT: Buy this album -- it's tremendous! Listen to it a lot and it will grow on you (like the blurred out giant evil 'fenix' on the album cover ;)

LONGER REVIEW: I couldn't wait for this album to come out. I set aside the evening, prepared -- stereo cranked up, on my fourth or fifth drink, etc. -- and listened straight through paying close attention. My first impression wasn't great to be honest -- I thought it was a little "soft". I almost wrote a knee-jerk negative review saying the D had lost it etc. Instead I went to bed. The next day I listened to the album again but in the background at a lower volume. It started getting its hooks into me. That was last week, and I've now listened to the album a dozen times or so. I've also done a "comprehensive review" of the D recently -- I've listened to the other 2 albums a bunch of times and rewatched everything including the POD movie. My conclusion? "The Rize of the Fenix" is a very rich, multi-layered and creative album. Dare I say it's really "mature," in the sense that JB & KG's songwriting has evolved to encompass a wider variety of styles. Don't worry -- it's still really vulgar, profane and hilarious, but the scope is wider in my opinion. "39," and "The Ballad Of Hollywood Jack And The Rage Kage" stand out in this regard (anyone else hear Neil Diamond in there?) And I don't mean that they've half-assed tried to write songs in genres other than metal/rock in order to appear creative and diverse but ended up contriving some BS. Not at all. They've upped the ante and successfully produced a complex and advanced masterpiece. The impression I get is that they are far from complacent -- they've worked their asses off in the interim and pushed their own limits and it paid off.

This could be - and I'm still mulling this over as of yet - Tenacious D's best album to date. For me, it doesn't have the same addictive, "short but sweet" vibe as P.O.D, but it's certainly the strongest thing they've done. It branches out, it experiments, and each track has something new to add to the table. Don't worry though, it still has many traits of the classic D. It has that effortless, smooth rhythm that defines their sound.

1) Rize of the Fenix - A great opening song. Slow melodic start, and then the speed picks up and...The D is back! There's nothing amazingly different about it but it sure as hell reminds you just why you love the band. Reminds me of "City Hall", and that's certainly not a bad thing!

2) Low Hanging Fruit - This one is interesting. It's unusually fast for this band. It expands their talents and manages to be very addictive too. What's more, it has that balance of soft acoustic and distorted electric guitar which melds together for great effect.

3) Classical Teacher - The first skit of the album. You'll have to make up your own mind about this...humour is subjective. What the hell am I saying, you're a D fan! Funny stuff!

4) Senorita - Another new sound. I've just been reminded why I love Kyle's guitar-playing. At this point we're seeing some serious variety. The explosive ending is classic Tenacious D.

5) Deth Starr - Nice relaxing opening, then BANG! Addictive, fast-paced riffs and smooth flowing vocals from Mr Jack Black. You'll be singing along with this one, I guarantee.

6) Roadie - This one seems to be getting a lot of praise, but it doesn't do much for me. Objectively, I can see that it's a good song, but for me, there's nothing captivating about it.

I honestly thought that after the release of "Pick Of Destiny" that Jack Black and Kyle Gass had used up all of their creativity, but i have been proven wrong, i've listened to the album 5 or 6 times now and haven't gotten tired of it yet.
The vinyl edition is quite possibly the best sounding newly produced vinyl albums i've ever bought, when comparing the sound quality of the vinyl with the sound quality of the CD edition i hear almost no differences.
The vinyl also comes with a code good for one MP3 download of the entire album, and one of the funniest most awesomest posters ever. I have uploaded some photos of the vinyl edition for your viewing pleasures.

I am more than thrilled that these guys are keeping the D alive after damn near 20 years. But I was hoping for more after such a long hiatus. John Spiker's production is stellar and some of the tunes are classic D. "39", "Roadie", the title track, and "Deth Starr" are all excellent, hilarious, headbanging nuggets. Their arrangements keep getting better, and Dave Grohl is back. All good stuff.

However some of the album feels undercooked. "To Be the Best" and "They F'd Our A's" feel like they could be much longer, and "Senorita" is just bad. After 6 years I was expecting all killer no filler. I hope this is just another step on the way to some crazy prog double album and DVD release, because I know they could do it. I'm just not holding my breath.

Also to people interested in the 2 disc bonus edition, you get a couple of videos ("Low Hangin Fruit", "Roadie", "Rock Is Dead" and some promo spots on the DVD, and 2 bonus tracks on the CD ("Quantum Leap" and "Rivers of Brown"). Pretty meager and not really worth the extra dough unless you are a collector.
