"The D returns in the follow-up to the under appreciated movie/album "The Pick of Destiny" which, even though it tanked at the theatres, totally rocked and should definately become a cult classic. This new set gives us an excellent live concert featuring a full band, incredible live versions of "Tribute", "Friendship", "Kickapoo" (Great vocals by Kyle, and oh, the other guy, too!). These guys have never sounded better! Rage Cage's incredible guitar work deserves a mention here. This guy is a master on the acoustic guitar! The bonus disc includes a behind the scenes documentary that fans of the band will enjoy. Near the end of this, we get some insight into the creative process and are treated as the D performs a new song which is, well, incedible! I hope this song makes it onto a new album soon! Overall, I would highly reccomend this DVD to fans of the band or fans of rock music in general. Long Live the D!"
Tenacious E...... I mean D!?

"Well I really like Tenacious D. I think Jack Black and Kyle Gass are funny in the movies I have seen them in. They seem like cool guys who have a band because they like to have one. They don't need the money. Plus how much do they actually get. Well that's what I usually think when I hear them. That kind of changed after seeing this DVD. I will tell you why below. I will also tell you about some other problems I had with this DVD.
Well I was sitting in my room at night, looking forward to seeing Jack and Kyle play some music and make me laugh. While I did see that, there were also other people who were part of the band as well. It sounded good to me. But I am used to Tenacious D being just a 2 person band. You have to get used to the other people playing with them. It makes sense because they have something happen that looks like they go to hell. The other band members meet them there and play with them. There is also someone who just dances. I didn't think about it until I watched the commentary. Not sure how easy it will be to get used to this. It kind of seemed like I was watching a play. Again, I'm not sure if I liked this or not. I mean I guess I did. But It wasn't the D I was used to.
Now the camera. This may have been the worst thing about this show. The camera was moving the WHOLE time. Seriously, as soon as you would get a good shot of Jack or Kyle playing, they would switch cameras. It kind of made me feel sick. I was saying to myself "stop moving the freaking camera so much!" I may have more of a problem with this because I only have 10% of my vision. But It seems to me that there are others will get sick of the movement of the camera.
I think I would give the concert a 3.8 out of 5. But the bonus features I would give a 5. You get to see the D one a few TV shows. As well as see the band going on tour and just living without having to act. Some of the things said during this point I can't be sure if they are true or just the band joking around. Like Kyle getting mad that he was not set to go on one of the shows with black. As well as some of the other things said by the guys.
In the end though, if you like the band, you will enjoy the DVD. You get to see the guys playing live with some of there best songs. You also get to see the band a little different from what you may be used to. Also, you get to see the guys when they are not in front of a big crowd or in front of a live TV audience. Some may think the way they have set up the show is strange. But give it a chance. I'm sure you will enjoy.
The songs are as follows:
8.Hell Movie Skit
11.Dude (I Totally Miss You)
12.Kyle Quit The Band
15.Papagenu (He's My Sassafrass)
17.Beelzeboss (The Final Showdown)
19.F*** Her Gently

Musical Comedy for a new generation!!!

"I should say...I'm a 50 plus year old...who loves the Sound of Music and Singin in The Rain.....this is NOT your dad's or grandads musical comedy...Jack Black drops F bombs as often as he plays the simple cowboy C chord on his Gibson acoustic but it is FUN!!
This 2 DVD set contains a fully produced concert which is loaded with fun songs..excellent musicianship and an actual story line! It is a first rate production. The second disc has a hilarious documentary (and if you purchase at BEST BUY an additional 30 minutes of out takes)...there are also some cool appearances on SNL, Conan etc..
Its a very worthwhile bit of fun and music....which I'm having a pretty hard time describing because I can't think of anybody crazy enough to have done anything like it. They are mistakenly linked to Spinal Tap but other than a rock and comedy element I don't see it....Tap was a parody all the way and this ....well it stands on its own. It isn't even garage band stuff for the most part...its more like the kind of music a couple of 16 year olds would do in their bedrooms and perhaps that has a certain appeal to me as a kid who played guitar with his buddy and wrote equally horrible songs in High School. Several hours of fun for not a lot of scratch..
I'm happy to give the D 5 stars!
Complete Masterworks 2

"The Complete Masterworks 2 is a worthy companion to the first CM DVD, a set that used to feel like the end-all-be-all for visual Tenacious D goodness until the Pick of Destiny CD and feature film. This set succeeds not so much because it emulates the first DVD, which it some ways it does, but because it presents a somewhat different version of the band.
Let's start with the concert. This concert finds the D using more elaborate sets and following a sort of storyline over the course of the show. They are also backed up by backup musicians for some songs. It's a great show whether or not you like the changes in the performances and a worthy documentation of this previously new side of Tenacious D.
However, the focal point of this new set isn't the concert, much to my own surprise. The documentary "D-Tour" is absolutely jarring. It will shake the foundations of how you view this band. At first, it's hard to tell whether the band is joking or not when they express their concerns and frustrations about this time period (playing with a band, their film doing poorly, and an increased attention to Jack over Kyle by the media). In fact, the first few times that frustrations do become manifest you're likely to take it as a bit of humor on the part of the guys. However, as the film goes on the problems begin to show themselves as real and not a play for laughs. It's a very realistic look at the band that hasn't been done before to my knowledge. This is Tenacious D - honest, open, and vulnerable. If you are a D fan, this documentary will stick with you for a while.
Don't take this as a paint-by-numbers DVD set. It captures the D at a time where at their most dramatic. While the first set caught the D at a high point, this shows the D from another angle - where things aren't going as well as they did before. But despite all of that, you come away having a deeper appreciation of the relationship between these two guys. A must-have."
