Editorial Reviews

Product Description

With pitchfork and shovel, Tenacious D has labored to finally unearth the first ever Tenacious D-VD from the fragrant bowels of Hades. For years, this turd has been spit-polished, massaged, and finally sanctified by both Jables and KG, and they are now ready release it to the world.

This highly provocative DVD contains the legendary and epic recital at London's Brixton Academy that was by chance recorded on November 3, 2002. Watch as Jack and Kyle slay the mighty dragon and treat the British public to a phenomenal performance that includes the now classic D melodies; Wonderboy, Explosivo, Kyle Quit The Band, Friendship, Kielbasa, Dio, The Cosmic Shame, F#*! Her Gently, Tribute and the ever popular Live Short Films that have been screened during The D's shows.

The Complete Masterworks also contains the groundbreaking, hard to get (legally), HBO episodes which tell the tale of The D in their early days on the road to stardom.

But that's not all! Act now and a bonus second disc will be gifted to the first twelve million loyal Tenacious D apostles, included is an intimate portrait of Jack and Kyle and their life of carnal debauchery on the road. Lucky owners of the DVD will catch rare and gruesome behind the scenes glimpses of the making of the Tribute & Wonderboy videos as well as never before seen footage of The D as they perform their secret backstage rituals. TENACIOUS D: THE COMPLETE MASTERWORKS is truly a harbinger of the good times ahead as we all await the coming apocalypse.

If you're not a Tenacious D fan already, The Complete Master Works might make you an instant convert (or scare you away; it all depends). One thing's for sure: If you thought "the D" were nothing more than a novelty act, this two-disc feast will set you straight, proving that classically trained guitarist Kyle Gass and fast-rising comedy star Jack Black (School of Rock) are a bona fide acoustic power duo, scorching the pop-cultural landscape with their satirically scathing lyrics while qualifying as legitimate musicians with awesome chops and just enough insanity to make them dangerous on stage. Disc 1 ("For Fans") is all meat and potatoes, consisting of a brilliant concert (taped at London's Brixton Academy, November 3, 2002) in which Black casts himself as an abrasive provocateur, daring to offend "KG" and the audience alike with barbed taunts and spiteful attitude (all faked, of course, but convincing enough to sucker the gullible). The musicianship is first-rate, and Black's vocals remarkably spry, a deft combination of rapid-fire scatting and heavy-metal worship. The HBO episodes chronicle TD's early years as their popularity was still mostly an L.A.-based phenomenon, and without exception they're wet-your-pants hilarious.

Disc 2 is aptly dubbed "For Psycho Fans," offering a potpourri of TD ephemera for true devotees, including three HBO short films that are gross enough (and funny enough) to make any Farrelly Brothers comedy look positively tame by comparison (in other words, this definitely isn't kid's stuff). The TV appearances are somewhat redundant with the concert material, and the "On the Road" video diaries are perfunctory but fun. The best is saved for last: two music videos paired with "making-of" featurettes, including Spike Jonze's fantasy-oriented video for "Wonderboy," and a devilishly adult-oriented video for "FHG" (salacious "D" fans know what that means) from the animators of Ren & Stimpy. If you're offended, don't blame "Kage" and "Jables"--their Tenacious DVD has "Parental Advisory" clearly stamped on its cover, and prudes are well-advised to stay away. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST MUSIC DVD SETS October 12, 2004
By MMAfan
EVERYONE has to buy this. This is one of the best band DVD sets out there. Of course it's a 2 DVD set but get it while you can because after a while there going to take away the second disc.

Of course Tenacious D is one of the best acoustic/rock groups around today. You got Jack Black with lead vocals and guitar, and Kyle Gass with lead acoustic guitar and vocals. I like how Jack Black always jokes around on stage and Kyle takes everything serious. This set is very good in all kinds of funny and gross ways. You're getting over 3 and a half hours of footage.


6 HBO EPISODES- These are extremely funny and the live parts of these episodes are awesome. They were taped from 1996-1999. You get to hear some songs from the cd (no drums or electric guitar on live parts) as well as some other songs that were great but never got put on their cd. All the live parts in these episodes are done in a small bar type place on Open Mic Night and no one in the audience really likes them. Below are the list of episodes and the length of each one. I listed the songs played in each episode as well.

The Episodes are:

-The Search For Inspirado- (10:32)-SONGS- Kielbasa,,,, History of Tenacious D,,,, Kyle Quit the Band
In this episode J.B. and K.G. have five days to write a new song, but get mad at each other and end up breaking up for a while.

-Angel in Disguise- (11:30)-SONGS- Double Team,,,, Karate,,,, Kyle Too a Bullet For Me
In this episode J.B. gets mad at K.G. for liking the same girl that he likes after J.B. gives K.G. a Friends for Ever medallion which ends up saving his life.

-Death of a Dream- (12:26)-SONGS- Cosmic Shame,,,, Sasquatch,,,, Kielbasa
In this episode J.B. and K.G.

5.0 out of 5 stars All of my Rocket Sauce February 6, 2006
This DVD collection includes all of the original HBO series episodes, a concert filmed in London at Brixton Academy, short films, music videos, television appearances and a few featurettes. No need to search for Tenacious D appearances - it's all right here. It's a great collection of material and a must-own for any Tenacious D fan.

The HBO episodes were the hook. They created the cult following. This was where Jack Black and Kyle Gass first got to showcase their eccentric brand of humor and music. People either loved it or hated it - and most loved it. You could tell immediately that Jack Black had a bright comedic future. The songs they perform are hilarious. The fact that the audiences at the open mic shows have no reaction, as if the songs were dead serious, makes it even more amusing. Each episode is outstanding - and each has its' moments of irresistible hilarity. This was a great show!

The concert at Brixton Academy in London is a hell of a show. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is true that you should watch the HBO episodes prior to watching the concert footage. You will no doubt enjoy the show, yet you will have missed the basis for the songs themselves, as they are revealed and dealt with in the episodes. The Brixton show is great, though. The interplay between Jack, Kyle and the crowd made for a wonderful dynamic - and the performance of the D certainly didn't hurt. They were truly on their game that night and the show is amazing.

The bonus disc contains hours of additional material. The HBO short films are filthy and funny- a great addition to the DVD. There are "On the Road with.." and "In the Studio" featurettes that give you a look at life with Tenacious D. They are both amusing and worth a viewing.

This is a great deal - all the Tenacious D that has ever been available for viewing is right here on this 2-disc collection. If you're a fan of the series or the music, you've got to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect November 7, 2003
Warning: If you want [to be] blown out, buy this DVD!!
This is THE must own for any Tenacious D fan. Everything is here...every episode from the HBO series, the videos, the making of the videos, an entire live concert and more! My wife had never seen the D before, but she likes Jack Black. She laughed like crazy during the episodes. Still can't get over how talented they are musically to go along with how funny they are. You will not be disappointed with this one.

I have nothing new to say about The D, Satan, Sassy, or any of the other important themes of this excellent music that hasn't already been said. However, to chime in with the sweet chimes of enlightenment and inspirado, I will say, yes, watch the T.V. episodes first so you "get it." Then later watch the concert. This is good stuff, great stuff and soon your mind will explode from The D too and the pieces of it will sparkle in the sun as they lie on the street reflecting the eternity of the universe. Lastly, if you're some frat guy who likes this just because it's now getting popular, oh well, you could probably be cool someday too, I still have hope for myself, so I can hope for you. Take care and please vote for my review so I can be a top 1000 reviewer, then I can be cool...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best DVD Ever Recorded! November 3, 2003
I just received my copy of this item in today's mail, and spent the rest of the day huddled in the corner of my office secretly watching! I had never seen the HBO episodes, and they were great. Although there may be no true substitute to seeing a concept develop from sketch comedy to touring band in its natural evolutionary pace, having the material all laid out for you on these discs is the next best thing!
Now that this is out, time for the D to go back in the studio and lay down some new material! Oh, and don't forget Florida next time you tour! ROCK ON KG AND JB!!!
