Tenacious D

£11.99

Product description

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.
This CD is the De-Lux edition which comes in a foam lined book shaped box, and has a 3D picture on the inner case and a small poster of the group.
A Limited edition collector CD.
