Biography

Hard work, determination and success go hand and hand—and no one understands that better than STORY OF THE YEAR. In that spirit it should come as no surprise that these post-hardcore sensations decided to title their fourth full-length The Constant. However that doesn’t mean that the band’s latest disc isn’t a logical progression for St. Louis’ favorite breakout ... Read more in Amazon's Story Of The Year Store

Editorial Reviews

With its Page Avenue debut album near platinum and the studio followup due in late summer, Story of the Year writes its second chapter with the concert album-plus-DVD Live in the Lou. Along with the best of two November 2004 concerts in hometown St. Louis on both the CD and DVD, Live in the Lou expands the DVD with videos and documentary footage from past to present and wacky backstage film of life on the road for one of modern rock's fastest-rising bands. Maverick. 2005.

These guys are the best live performers out today. It's as simple as that. Although a DVD can't capture all the energy that comes with the experience of seeing a band live, this is still fun to watch and brings back memories of SOTY shows you have been to or gives you an idea of what they are like if you haven't been to one. The extra stuff is really funny as well. It is sorta like jackass type stuff. Bottom line is it is a must own for SOTY fans.

Story of the Year puts on a show like no other band I've ever seen. The concert footage alone is worth the price.

Not only to you get the DVD of their concert, but a CD of the show for your car stereo. As well as behind the scenes footage on the DVD, which is hilarious. Rock needs more guys like this.

It's a must have for any Story of the Year fan, and a great buy for anyone who hasn't seen them perform.

Firstly, I'm not going to mouth off here, so if you're looking for that, please look elsewhere. What I will do is try and tell you what you can find in Live in the Lou/Bassassins and not how "good" or "bad" Story of the Year are and what I "think" of them. While I can count the number of rock shows I've been to on one hand, I have seen Story of the Year live on two occasions, so perhaps I'm at least a passable judge for this release.

While their tremendous energy is a constant, I can't honestly say that I feel as if Live in the Lou is exemplary of their ability to play a live show. Their musical performance in LitL seems to lack a measure of togetherness, does not feel very solid most of the time, and the lead vocals are noticeably out of tune for a decent amount of the show. However, when the playing is tight and the vocals are in tune, it is definitely a lot easier on the ears.

The documentary portion of the DVD will probably provide amusement for elite Story of the Year fans, but while I find myself laughing at a few things here and there (and I consider myself to be a big fan), it tends to bog down somewhat and get silly and...odd (euphemism alert) for me. The extra AOL live sessions included are a welcome addition to the DVD and for me, are actually among the most enjoyable and well done segments on the DVD.

If this is a fan's first exposure to a live SotY show, I'd be willing to give it a 50/50 shot that they'll come away with a smile on their face, but would recommend that they actually see them in the flesh. I'm not so sure about that 50/50 shot if you've seen them before or are accustomed to frequent live performances, but I'd urge you to give it a go and come to your own conclusion. While this isn't the nicest live show I've seen, I do enjoy having a live CD/DVD of Story of the Year. What you make of it is ultimately up to you.

I have been listening to this group for a long time. First time i watched this DVD I loved it, They make the crowd get into most of their songs...You want a rock group with lots of energy..this one for you... But my favourite is the bonus features, it has:

Music Videos (5.1 Audio) Sidewalks, Athem of my dying day, Until the day I Die,...

AOL Sessions, And the making of the Sidewalks video.

Also a Documentary of the groups life in BASSASSINS. Dont forget the Live Concert (DVD) & the Concert on CD Audio

This is Value for your money!!!!!

I recommend this to any Story of the Year fan to get this CD/DVD combo

If you're a Story of the Year fan but don't get out of the house much to see them live in concert...Live in Lou is the perfect help! This CD rocks and has all the elements of a live concert, more than songs. Aspects like shout outs to their road crew and just a "rootin tootin good time". I definately suggest this to those who are true Story of the Year fans...and those who aren't...get it anyway!
