Sound — 10
The D's sound in this album just flows so well. Kyles acoustic mastery almost merges with Jack Black's voice in songs like Classico, History, and The Government Totally Sucks. While in a lot of other songs the sound is just epic, and it hardly ever falters. In some of the songs the sound changes(very rapidly) from one style of music to another. This keeps listeners ready to see what the next part of the song will be like. Although in Papagenu (He's my Sassafrass)the yelling in the begining can be annoying if you have seen the movie then yo'll know what it's about. All in all the sound was mind blowing.
Lyrics — 9
I'm going to be honest the lyrics weren't that deep, but hey they don't have to be because the hilariousness of the songs make up for that. And the lyrics weren't pointless either. They were sraightforward and made sense, mostly. The way Jables sings is just crazy, he takes it to a whole other level above singing. He will match pitch to KG's guitar so well. The lyrics were pretty good, and they reflect they bands struggle to obtain the POD.
Overall Impression — 10
The overall impression of the album was almost to much to handle. And in comparison to other bands it's kind of hard because Tenacious D has really interesting riff's and solos. I have heard some people say te D is a Tribute to Dio, and I could see that, but you can't really say which is better cause they are both f--king amazing. The best song in my opinion would be Beelzeboss (The Final Showdown). I love how this album is almost like a musical in that the songs are connected by a big story. Yes indeed this album was a natural face melter.
