Kage and Jables return mightily with The Rize of the Fenix, an album which—at its finest—mirrors the transcendence of their early days.

A.V. Club

No joke: Rize Of The Fenix is one of the year’s most enjoyable hard-rock records. 

No Ripcord

All in all, it delivers the chuckles and a few guffaws, even if they are hitting up against the law of diminishing returns.

Consequence of Sound

Rize of the Fenix proves that Tenacious D still reign supreme. But maybe only burrito or chicken supreme and not quite Cutlass Supreme this time out.


Tenacious D’s album number three fails to capture the comic energy of the band’s prior musical output and pales in comparison to other, much funnier rock music moments by the band’s contemporaries.

Purchasing Rize of the Fenix from Amazon helps support Album of the Year.
