'Stand Up' showcases newish band Everyday Sunday's first forays into short-form video territory. The videos for catchy singles "Lose it Again" and "Wait" are included and show a band that knows how to rock, and also how to have fun. Also included are a "Making Of." behind-the-scenes footage for the "Lose it Again" video, which basically shows the band fooling around from many angles, and, as a bonus, a video of an independent song, "Just A Story", which actually serves to top the other two videos provided in the hilarity stakes, whilst also being a decent song. After this though it falls down as all that remains to be discovered are some photos from the 'Stand Up' album photo shoot and audio clips from the album. As such, it only takes 15-20 minutes to exhaust the possibilities of this DVD. For a budget price this is forgivable, but one gets the feeling that this was a little bit of a rush-together job on the part of the record company. Perhaps a little harsh. For what it is, 'Stand Up' is fine, but when, say, placed up against the Pax 217 DVD which is part of the same series, there is no comparison in terms of value for money or quality of the package as a whole.
