If you missed Jack Black's crass and highly amusing (if you like that sort of thing) side-project debut in 2002, he's back with more. And this time there's a movie too.

Whereas the former was sprinkled with comedy sketches, this one features lines from the film and soundtracks the band's quest to find the elusive guitar pick and become The Greatest Band On Earth.

Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl returns on drum duties, and Meatloaf makes a typically overblown appearance on album opener Kickapoo, the title of which sets the humour level for the following 34 minutes.

Tenacious D proves hard rock can laugh at itself. Just as well, really. 3/5
