  • Summary: What started as a series of HBO shorts has turned into a full-fledged band, featuring actor Jack Black ("High Fidelity") and Kyle Gass. Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) and Steve McDonald (Redd Kross) are among the guest musicians on this, the D's debut album, produced by the Dust Brothers.

  1. They're profane, bursting with rage and lust, and they deliver more laughs than anyone since Richard Pryor.

    This is the stuff of pure comic genius.
  3. While the acoustic D sounds better, weirder, and purer, this still is a hell of a record, particularly because it rocks so damn hard.
  4. Managing an odd simultaneous fusion of stupid and clever, acoustic-guitar-wielding rockers Jack Black and Kyle Gass mingle songs and skits on their slick, gleefully profane, Dust Brothers-produced debut.
  5. Take away the insane lyrics, and you’ve still got music worth listening to. Granted, it sounds like Journey being raped by Ronnie James Dio, but you have to admit that’s intriguing.

    As endearing as early Ween. [Jan 2002, p.76]
  7. Shelve this one next to that Adam Sandler CD you haven't listened to in four years.
