Sound — 8
The band don't take themselves too seriously and this shows in their albums. Some of their songs don't make much sense unless you have seen the movie 'The Pick Of Destiny' but if you have seen the movie the album makes much more sense. The song 'Master Exploder' is probably the best song on the album whether you saw the movie or not. It has a very origional and fresh sound to it. Singer Jack Black's vocals are mind-blowing at times in this album, such as in 'Classico' or 'Master Exploder'.
Lyrics — 7
The lyrics in the album basically describe what happened in the formation of the band and the story of the movie. It's almost as if you are watching the film itself when you listen to the album. This album isn't worth buying unless you've seen the movie because none of the lyrics make any sense. 'Beezleboss' is a good example. It's basically about how jack and kyle defeat satan in a rock off and the song works much better if you understand what is happening in it.
Overall Impression — 8
Overall I enjoyed listening to the album and I thought some songs were amazing, such as master exploder and classico and others were very dull such as 'Car Chase City'. Kyle produces some outstanding guitar solos and catchy riffs throughout the album which together with Jack's vocals creates a unique and worthwhile listening experience.
