  1. Not only are these not the greatest songs in the world, they're not even a tribute to them.
  2. Whereas [debut album] Tenacious D was a brilliant parody of the blood-and-thunder metal genre, functioning as a cohesive, hilarious whole, The Pick Of Destiny is mere bong resin.
  3. The only person this record would ever appeal to is the man who made it--Jack Black. [11 Nov 2006, p.43]
  4. There are no real songs here, only weak gags and unfunny skits. [Jan 2007, p.152]
