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 film's executive producer on the New Line cinema film ''Tenacious D in the Pick Of Destiny'' starring Jack & Kyle. If the D's 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.

Amazon.com

Like Spinal Tap, the Rutles, and even the Bonzo Dog Band, Tenacious D manage to send up rock conventions while employing them expertly. The soundtrack to their first full-length motion picture mixes songs and bits from the movie, but it plays like a hilarious concept album more than anything. Dave Grohl and (one half of the) Dust Brothers--who played on the D's delicious 2001 debut--are here joined by Meat Loaf and Ronnie James Dio. The title song navigates power balladry from the late '80s and early '90s in ways most awesome, while also throwing in a bridge that rips on faux-mystical elf-progisms of '70s stadium rock. At times the songs get a bit too meta (e.g. "He who is groovy must be in my movie"), but quibbling about self-referentiality when it comes to a fake band that calls itself "The Greatest Band on Earth" and who sings that their movie is "better than-uh Citizen Kane-uh" is perhaps to not have much of a sense of humor. --Mike McGonigal

Customer Reviews

You like the movie, you'll love the soundtrack!
Heather
I think with a few good listens you will begin singing along just as we all did with the first album.
Brooks Carmean
They are very creative and some of these songs could be mainstream they are that good.

Man people are making way too big a deal about this cd not being long enough and a "disappointment." First off, most of the songs will grow more and more on you each time that you listen to them. I think with a few good listens you will begin singing along just as we all did with the first album. Secondly, the CD is a SOUNDTRACK and while you could consider it the D's second album, it's main purpose is still to be a soundtrack. That being said, while some of the songs might not be that good to some of us now, when they are being played in the movie up on the big screen with Jack and Kyle performing those actions in the lyrics of the songs, I would imagine the songs will be pretty awesome. D fans- Don't listen to all the negative nancys, this is a great buy especially now at $9.99.

It's an excellent opening track, just for hearing Dio alone, but then it's another dozen or so before we encounter something that's longer than three minutes long, and the average length is two minutes. While nothing overstays its welcome, and Black's voice is still great, and the guitar work still graceful... so many of these songs are over before they get a chance to begin.

There's a much wider variety of music on here, like they're spreading their wings, but when it gets brilliant it feels more accidental than inspired. I think "Master Exploder" is genius, but I enjoy it more for its artistic merits than because it rocks or is funny. I think the problem is that this album can't find a groove in between "rock n' roll with a sense of humor" and nearly Zappa-inspired antics.

In the end, with its lack of cohesion, and the brevity of the album and most of the songs, I feel like I got a soundtrack with a couple bonus tracks.

For anyone who isn't previously versed in the D, this CD may be a little off-putting. Especially those who like the single Pick of Destiny that is all over MTV. But being a fan of the D for a long time, I rather enjoy this disc. My only problem with Tenacious D has been that they didn't have enough music on their first CD. This problem is solved on the soundtrack to their movie that opens next week. One thing I've always thought is that when they really want to be, Tenacious D are an excellent band. Kyle and Jack can harmonize easily and Jack is quite the frontman, who can also sing when he wants to. The lyrics are goofy and crass but it's the magic of the D. The musicianship of the band is excellent as I have said before, Kyle is a solid guitar player and their drummer is the multi-talented Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters). Certain songs I really enjoyed are "Kickapoo" which features both Meatloaf and Ronnie James Dio. Other good songs are History (which is from their TV show, which are included on the Tenacious D Masterworks, which I would also suggest for D fans), Master Exploder and Beezleboss, which is pretty metal, even for the D. So if you want to hear some good rock music with the appeal of Jack Black and stilly humor, join the ever growing fans of the D immediately!

This version of "PICK OF DESTINY", as noted, comes as follows:

* A copy of the soundtrack, which is NOT in a jewelcase, but in a cardboard package with the 3-D artwork pasted onto the front (NOTE it is the same 3-D/lenticular image that is also available on the regular edition of the soundtrack)

* 8 Tarot cards, each one an illustrated reflection of "the genesis of the D". Cute.

* A replica "pick of destiny", plastic-y but nicely detailed.

* A cheap fold-out poster - not the film artwork, but a shot of JB, KG and Saskquatch. It's quite small- it is housed in the cardboard CD holder.

* A cardboard box to hold it.

The music-- well we've all waited a LOOONG time for new Tenacious D material (I mean, they've been mainstream since their show debuted in '98 on HBO as a Mr. Show bumper, and this is only their 2nd album!), and personally I'm a bit let-down. A few of the songs are GREAT, but in total the album is only 35-min. long, and of that probably only 20 minutes are worthwhile NEW material ('Classico' and 'History of Tenacious D' are not new songs). I'd hoped for more, honestly; I suppose we'll have another 4-to-5 year wait for more material??

Overall this "Limited Edition" it's hardly worth the extra $$, in my opinion, unless you REALLY need the replica Pick Of Destiny. The 3-D artwork is the exact same as on the regular (and much cheaper) version, the cardboard case the CD comes-in is just cheap, and the poster is definately nothing special (it's so small I'm surprised they didn't include that in the regular version as well).

All that said-- ooking forward to seeing the flick.

I've seen the defense that this "is a soundtrack" and isn't the official 2nd-album by The D. And while I can appreciate that line of thinking, the fact is that they've been in the spotlight for 9 years now (since being a Mr.Show bumper in '98), and in that time they've only managed to squeak-out their debut release and... this.

Less than 35-minutes of music, much of it feeling very filler-like, including two recycled tracks ('History' and a revamp of 'Classico'). A fan can't help but feel disappointed.

At least the price (esp. here on Amazon) is right. It's priced just above an EP, and that's about how much new music you get.

I do hope they buckle-down and get to writing a proper new album. Hearing the genuis that is 'Kickapoo' on this soundtrack just reminds us HOW AMAZING Tenacious D can be when they really put their minds to it.
