Ultimately many of the skits do actually work without the cartoons that Tenacious D originally set them to, but the lack of more sonic details definitely make them harder to deal with every other track.

Consequence of Sound

Like the study hall scribbles from which Black takes his cues, there’s an aimlessness to Post-Apocalypto that prevents it from developing into much more than that this time around, either as a sporadically funny web series or the frustratingly reined-in soundtrack that accompanies it.

The Independent

Post-Apocalypto is explicitly political in a way never seen before from the band, but by serving as a trot through the musical highlights of the webseries, the album also skips over any firm sense of statement.

As a soundtrack to a show, it's fine. It's got all the songs that you may or may not have enjoyed from the show, condensing the shows storyline into a 30 minute rock opera. However, this is being labeled as a standalone record. And as a stand alone record, it's extremely inconsistent with quality. Most of the tracks are too short to really leave an impact, with good ideas not being fully fleshed out enough.

Remember when I said "2018: When Jack Black makes better music than Jack White?" well how weird is it they both did a song about a dog this year?
The highlight of this was them parodying the newer music of David Crosby, as a graphic sex anthem on 'Making Love'.

I mean it's great to hear them again. This is mostly skits and really doesn't hold up outside of context at all.

I have no idea why I decided to do this as my first album today. I mean, there are a few good satirical moments here and there but everything else failed to even bring a grin to my face and this barely has any music at all. It's mostly just terrible skits. Overall, I think we're getting tired of chasing the D.
