As part of the massive Belle and Sebastian re-issue campaign, this is one of the lesser known releases in their back catalogue. A selection of songs they recorded for the Todd Solondz film of the same name. Not all of them made the final cut for the film but here they are as God (Stuart Murdoch) intended.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 1st February 2015
I've been listening to Belle and Sebastian for awhile, and though I found this album to be a departure from the group's normal work, it certainly does not deserve the negative reviews that some reviewers here have bestowed upon it. On the contrary, "Storytelling" has a permanent home in my portable CD player, and it has the special ability to appeal to my parents when I play it aloud at home. The instrumentals are luscious and demonstrate the truly powerful presence of Belle and Sebastian as a group - sometimes they number 20-odd people on-stage, rather than their stated size of 7-8 performers (now down one person, I'm afraid, with Isobel's departure from the group). B&S's music often works in an amazing orchestral form, so I was happy to see what the group members can do as instrumentalists.
