Editorial Reviews

In 2009, Todd Snider releases 'The Excitement Plan', called the 'Finest album of his career' by The Associated Press and 'Brilliant' by The New Yorker. So, what s next for East Nashville's wisecracking, troublemaking troubadour? A live album like you've never heard before. Part Dylan and Kristofferson, part Mitch Hedberg and Bill Hicks, the outspoken Snider has long established his concerts are more than just a set list. 'The Storyteller', a new double-disc live album captures Snider in his true element; onstage before a rapt audience.

This 2 CD live album features Todd backed by Colorado jam band, Great American Taxi. A different experience than Snider's typical solo acoustic set, the backing musicians really allow Todd to, in the words of legendary producer Bruce Dickinson, "explore the space." You will, however, discern very little cowbell on this record. You get so much bang for your buck with this phenomenal release, I actually gave it ten stars, then boiled them down to a highly concentrated five star count for you here on Amazon. Please buy this record, then proceed to rock out with your rooster out.

Everything the other reviewers say about Todd Snider's songwriting genius is spot-on. He's up there in the company of Bob Dylan and Tom Waits, and those three are in a class all their own.

His storytelling is as funny as a stand up comic's act, making this album a must-have.

And it would get five stars if the packing was not so unacceptable. The cardboard sleeve is so tight around the CD that one of the discs came out looking like a used air hockey puck and skips so bad to be unplayable.

The other disc was covered in some kind of adhesive, I imagine from the packaging. That cleaned off okay, but the disc, too was scratched.

Can we please go back to jewel cases?

ADDENDUM TO REVIEW: I e-mailed everyone (Amazon, Todd's online contact and the label) and all offered to make good. Exceptional customer service from all, but I made sure I was only sent the one replacement! Please do not let the packaging steer you away (although when I got my replacement copy I put the discs in a jewel case just to be safe). This album is a must own!

I didn't think Todd Snider could put together a better live album than Near Truths & Hotel Rooms, but I've listened to Storyteller a couple times through and I think he might have done just that. The stories are unbelievable...the hilarious KK Rider tale, his clever rambling story about hallucinagentic drugs and high school football, his ridiculous encounter with Bill Elliot which leads masterfully into "Sideshow Blues"...but the album also contains some of his best musical work. It was a refreshing change to hear him with a backing band (unlike Near Truths, which is all solo). "Play A Train Song" really stood out--it's a chilling version, very different from the studio one. Also can't go wrong with "America's Favorite Pastime" and all the other classics. A great album, start to finish.

Todd Snider is just a plain old folk-singing, story-telling, word-crafting,wise-cracking, guitar-playing American Original. He's Steve Earle with a comedy routine. He's a song-writing, left-wing protest singer in an era when you don't see many of those anymore, I guess. This just might be a classic album. I'm not sure yet, but I do know that I have almost worn it out after listening to it for a couple of months, and I will get another one when I do wear it out. I keep hearing new things on it the more that I listen to it, and it really helps me a lot when I need a laugh. "The Story of KK Rider is hysterical, and so is "The Mushroom Story", but then I started liking "The Bill Elliot Story". Snider's word phrasing is unique, and his pace, inflection, and timing are just great. On top of that, he's one very fine song-writer and singer. I hope you enjoy this album as much as I have. If you don't, you must be a "Conservative Christian, Right-Wing..."

Hey, we all love Todd Snider. For me, he is right there with John Prine, and that is high praise indeed. And this is a damn good album, and for anyone not familiar with Todd, you can't go wrong here. But I'm guessing that most people buying this are familiar with Todd--we've seen his shows (more than a few times), we have his albums, and maybe even spoken to him a few times. So I'm wondering who this album is for. We've heard all the songs, and we've heard all the stories before--and as great as the songs are, the stories are a big part of the show. This is his third (official) live album, and as great as he is, the live stuff doesn't differ much from each live album. If you don't have any live Todd, I'd rate "Near Truths and Hotel Rooms" as a better live album than "The Storyteller", but really, both are pretty darn good. But first, I'd suggest you search out Todd's "Marilyn's on K" (the "Slash Story" is worth the price of admission alone), or even better, "Tales From Moondawgs Tavern" (5 discs and not a bad track).

I don't know how this guy slipped past my radar. Probably because he doesn't seek "stardom." I heard about him on an Imus interview and bought his amazing book "I never met a story I didn't like: Mostly true tall tales." About half way through the read I bought this cd. It's a perfect compliment to the book. His music and lyrics are just wonderful. The stories he weaves during the performance make him very special. My new favorite! I've been spreading the word ever since. There is not a high enough rating for this record - promise!

I have been a Todd Snider fan for many years and this is my favorite of his CD's. Anyone who has been to a Todd Snider show can tell you that his stories are as big a part of his show as the songs. On this particular CD my favorite story is the KK Rider story leading into "Don't It Make You Want To Dance" Any time I'm feeling a little blue I can put on this story and I'm smiling by the time the music starts. Highly recommend this for any Todd Snider fan and for anyone who needs introducing to Todd Snider!
