Highly entertaining.

This two-disc set is perfect for long time D-Sciples or for introducing this musical/comedy duo to the masses. Jack Black and Kyle Gass are the genius behind Tenacious D, a rocking acoustic duo blessed by none other than Satan to spread their awsomeness about the globe. On the first disc you'll find every episode of their unfortunately short lived HBO series as well as a complete concert recorded live at Brixton Academy in London England. Highlights from their TV show include the episodes "Search for Inspirado" in which the band has 5 days to write a new song (because the club where they play is tired of the same song every week), and "The Fan" in which the D find themselves turning the table on a would-be stalker.

Disc two contains gems labeled "For Psycho Fans Only". On this disc you'll find three music videos, and two movies about the making of two of those videos. Also it contains an on the road documentary, D appearances on TV shows, and three extra short films that were made for HBO.

The Works has everything you could ever hope for chronicling this groups greatest creative efforts. The content some will find offensive and there are many rock induced "Satanic" elements which, humorously add to the depth of these characters (if indeed JB and KG aren't just being themselves). Their songs are addictive, easy to pick up and sing along with, even if their subject matter isn't something you'd want the kids to be exposed to. If you enjoy irreverent, satirical humor along the lines of Monty Python or The Simpsons, then I suggest whole heartedly Tenacious D: The Complete Masterworks.
