Editorial Reviews

Longtime Wu-Tang Clan affiliate and Brooklyn native, Killah Priest returns with Behind The Stained Glass, the highly anticipated follow up to the 2007 acclaimed The Offering. Introduced to the world through a deeply spiritual, lyrically sharp verse on "B.I.B.L.E." from GZA's Liquid Swords, Killah Priest's first album, Heavy Mental released in 1998, was filled with intensely spiritual lyrics loaded with metaphors and religious references. Ten years later, this former Sunz of Man group member is back with Behind The Stained Glass proving his passion for quality rhymes and quality music. The album contains sixteen tracks of Priest showcasing why he is considered as one of the top lyricists in the game. He opens with the thunderous track "I Believe" and on "Hood Nursery" he puts a clever, gritty spin on a classic nursery rhyme. The album features appearances from 60 Second Assassin, Allah Sun, Jeni Fujita and Victorious. Behind The Stained Glass is what fans continue to beg for and Priest describes it himself as "me tapping into the inner priesthood side I think people need more of."

Hip Hop veteran and long time Wu-Tang affiliate, Killah Priest, comes with his 6th LP, "Behind The Stained Glass", in 2008. This album is supposed to be a follow-up album to 2007's release The Offering. Well, this release definitely follows up to his previous work. Killah Priest comes through with some deep, insightful, religous lyrics mixed with some street rhymes. It might just be me, but it sounds like his flow has lost a beat. It's still good, but it sounds different from last album and his other works. The production on this album is above average, with producers including DJ Woool (10 tracks), Dirty Needlez, 4th Disciple, and a few others. The production, again, seems a little toned down from the last album. The guest on this album include Jeni Fujita, 60 Second Assassin, Allah Sun, and Victorious. The guests don't degrade the album, but they don't improve it, either. Overall, this is a solid release from the veteran. It isn't at the top of the releases from 2008, but it is still worth picking up.

Lyrics- 8.5/10
Production- 8/10
Guest Appearances- 7.5/10
Overall Sound- 8/10

There is really nothing I can say bad about this album. But I'll tell you what I found good. His lyrics are packed with introspective self examination and religious imagery galore. There is a lot to not be listened too but HEARD on this album. His delivery is calm and smooth almost like he's just having a casual discussion telling you what he believes. Also he is a very skilled storyteller. But first and foremost Priest is a FIERCE emcee and that is also abundantly shown on the CD. Finally I liked the fact that there is VERY little profanity to be found here.

I can't recommend this album enough.

This is one of those very rare albums of all time.Because it doesnt focus on cussing.
It just goes to show how multi-talented,multi-faceted that Killah Priest is!
In this particular album he dont cuss to get his point across. In truth we need more albums out there like this.
In fact its almost "nearly invisible" except for in very small parts.The only parts which holds cussing is in very brief moments in Tracks No.3-"A Crying Heart," And, No.12-"Jeshurun." If you could even call those brief moments actual cuss words at all!
And even if so! Its the same single brief word used within both tracks. Then you dont hear any other reference of such words at all!

I admire when an Emcee doesnt've to go there.And not only does this album stick out in that positive area.But it also equally sticks out in the area of delivering straight pure spiritual knowledge.

This is one out of the many other things in which i admire about Killah Priest's talents. He proved in this "Particular one" that he doesnt've to use those type of verbal expressions in order to get his point across.
He is very talented enough to get his message across without resulting to those extremes.
Some people say this album isnt as good as his album "The Offering." But in truth,that view varies from individual to individual. I like them both! He always delivers knowledge in all of his albums.

The reality is this: When a reviewer is judging on laid back deeply spiritual content from track to track. Then such a person is going to say "Behind the Stained Glass. But if a person is going and looking for certain beats mixed with street issues,along with a certain degree of knowledge within certain tracks.Then such reviewers like that would pick "The Offering.

Ten years on from his first solo album Heavy Mental, Priest has returned with another masterpiece. Most hip hop purists know that The Offering was arguably the best release of 2007 and Priest has changed the tempo yet again and released what should be the best album of 2008.

Behind the Stained Glass is Priest's deepest piece of work yet. The album is entrenched in spirituality and emotion and has Priest's trademark lyrical visual imagery stamped on every track.

I'll start by stating that no words can do justice to this album but I'll do the best review that I can.

'I Believe' starts the album off on a strong note and has Priest straight off declaring that he is again back and that his spirit is still strong.

'4 Tomorrow' is a beautiful track that highlights the problems of alcohol and substance abuse amongst Priest's community. The track has Priest sharing his experience of losing his sister and I'm sure that in time this song will mean a lot to people who have lost someone to a similar scourge.

'A Crying Heart' is a strong track produced by Thoro Tracks and again has Priest dropping verses about the social ills of this world.

'Hood Nursery' is one of the catchier tunes on the album and is a form of grimy nursery rhymes.

'Redemption' is where the production of DJ Woool hits another level and it really works well with Priest on this track. Priest comes across strongly as a prophet sharing his journey of how he has found divinity and redeemed himself. This song is what the 'Ancient of days' would tell you, it holds firm to the old teachings and the original covenant.

'Profits of man' is another beautiful track.
