  • Summary: The second album for the tongue-in-cheek rock duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass serves as the soundtrack to their movie of the same name.

    Laugh if you like, but [Black is] as convincing as any of today's straight-faced metal revivalists. [17 Nov 2006, p.127]
  2. This may not be a concept album, but it's structured as a narrative, mirroring the plot of the movie. Unfortunately, this doesn't give The Pick of Destiny the weight or grandeur of a true concept album, because a lot of the music sounds as if it serves the movie, and doesn't stand tall when separated from the film.

    Tenacious D insists it is the greatest band in the world, and on a couple occasions during this soundtrack to the duo's upcoming film of the same name, you kinda believe it. [18 Nov 2006]
  4. Whereas their first album hit the mark perfectly, The Pick of Destiny swings wildly and misses.
  5. That comedy gap between concept and finished product appears to be par for the course with Black's ventures.
  6. Not only are these not the greatest songs in the world, they're not even a tribute to them.

    There are no real songs here, only weak gags and unfunny skits. [Jan 2007, p.152]

    This album again displays the D's prowess as a legendary Rock-Metal band and their special blend of tounge-in-cheek gives them a unique edge.This album again displays the D's prowess as a legendary Rock-Metal band and their special blend of tounge-in-cheek gives them a unique edge.

    How this is only a 52 just baffles me. This is one of the more hillarious rock songs in recent history.

There story could have been written by a 10 year old. Dough i love both Jack Black and Dave Grohl, there is no excuse for this movie. I think turned it off 3 times. I would have called Jack and asked for my money back if I didnt borrow it for free from a friend. Expand
