Tenacious D: The Complete Master Works [DVD]
2

Sound — 10
Tenacious D's Complete Masterworks. The best DVD in the world to go with the best band in the world. It's mostly acoustic rock which is only fully describable if you listen to it. Amazingly funny and genious at the same time, I don't know why the don't crack up on stage.

Content — 10
The DVD contains all the HBO episodes, The D at Brixton Academy, music videos, short films, In The Studio and On The Road. The Brixton Academy setlist is: 01. Flash 02. Wonderboy 03. Explosivo 04. Heavy Metal Powersolo (by Kg) 05. Karate 06. Kyle Quit The Band 07. Friendship 08. Kielbasa 09. Dio 10. The Road 11. The Cosmic Shame 12. Fhg 13. Tribute 14. Rock Your Socks 15. Double Team They played excellently well and put on a great show. The first disc, BA and HBO episodes, is just that. The second is just shorter clips like short films and videos. It doesn't get boring if you understand it. People who don't get it won't enjoy as much as die hard D fans. Or even just fans.

Production Quality — 8
The production isn't bad on the DVD, the HBO episodes look quite cheap but that was either the effect they were aiming for or the budget. The gig at BA was well produced and the lights go well in time with the music. The rest is reasonably well done too. Not too much technology was used or was needed anyway.

Overall Impression — 10
This DVD is incomparable to other music DVDs, it has such a shitload of stuff on it. The most impressive thing about it is that it has so much stuff on it, it's hard to get bored of it. It is really good and will keep you entertained for ages at a time. If it got stolen I'd track the bastard that stole it, down, take it back and smack him over the head with a massive D-style guitar until he cried for his mama. If I lost it, I'd buy it again. It is amazing.
