    If you want to know why Snider has a loyal and growing following as a live act, Live: The Storyteller will tell you all you need to know about his rapport with a crowd and his way of making his songs and stories come to life.

    Although some of his anecdotes could drag on repeated listening, he is an engaging raconteur.

    Todd Snider has the kind of audience rapport that comes only through years of one-night stands and the confidence that builds in one's character – even if that character is of an inveterate ne'er-do-well peacenik, wryly proud of his inability to grow old gracefully.

    If you're a fan, The Storyteller is something you'll treasure. If you're not, it's sure to make you one.

    Snider has always followed his own path, always been the champion of the underdog -- the patron saint of all the wonderful weirdoes out there.
  6. There are stories proper galore, plenty more than the three tracked as such, and every one is worth hearing‑-always as narrative and usually as music, where Snider's acquired drawl provides a species of musicality akin to that of prime rapping, especially over a vamp.

    The Storyteller's two discs lean a little toward Snider's funnier latter-day material, padding it heavily with banter and stories, as well as a fair amount of the more earnest, tear-jerking fare he's always snuck in between the laughs.
  8. 80
    Like many a great singer-songwriter, Snider possesses neither an exceptional voice or above average guitar skills. What he does bring to the party, though, is his own inimitable point of view: a wry, self-deprecating, seemingly slightly stoned, hilarious, and authentic persona.

    Todd Snider decided to quit his high school football team during his first mushroom trip; years later, he got conned by someone impersonating a NASCAR driver and found himself fronting a country cover band after a drunk woman knocked the original singer on his ass. It's all there on The Storyteller, the populist folkie's career-spanning concert LP.

    The Ballad of The Kingsmen is just about the best distillation of free speech and the delusion of democracy ever recorded, while Mushroom Story will have you laughing and crying. [Apr 2011, p.98]

    This is another excellent record from Todd Snider. It excels at capturing the feeling of a Todd Snider show. As the title suggests, Todd has tons of great stories to go along with his songs. This album entertains on just about every level. For those who have seen Todd live, this album is a great reminder of those special performances. For those who haven't had the chance to see his live show, this offers an introduction to the experience, and hopefully a catalyst for seeing Todd live. Full Review »
