5.0 out of 5 stars Two CDs in a year December 22, 2008
Format:MP3 Music
Storiez, Shai Linne's third CD, and second one of 2008, celebrates the human tradition of story telling, as a vehicle for informing, teaching and warning. This is much lighter in tone to 'The Atonement', but still packs a punch lyrically.
Rick Horne narrates the CD, and whilst this might sound cheesy, for me it works, and adds something to the CD. Highlights include: 'Wake up Your Alive', which a symbolic song about new life for the 'Old Man (our flesh)
'A Simple Love Story', the symbolic nursery rhyme that explains the sin process so that a child can understand, Penelope Judd', As the Hour draws near( very deep, as we look at three people, close to death, one a Christian, who was luke warm in his faith, and fears what awaits on the other side , one who has run the faith of life in obedient, and who looks forward to eternity in Heaven with his Father, and the last who denies the existence of a God. 'Letter from the grave', which takes up from' As the Hour Draws near' from the view of the last person, who now resides in Hell, and his thoughts for his family & friends that still are alive (please see Luke 16:19-31) Martyrs (my favourite track) looks at three people from different times in our history, who have given up their life's for Christ's sake (Please see Luke 9:24-25)

This CD had me going to my Bible, and is an encouragement to my faith, and is the best CD, of this genre, that I have purchased this year

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Masterpiece by Shai Linne!! November 26, 2008
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
What more can I say about this artist? Not only does Shai Linne bring great beats but his lyrics are top notch among Christian rappers. This album is very unique, by telling stories yet still remaining true to the scriptures. GREAT WORK!!

5.0 out of 5 stars You Need This Album December 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was a little unsure about purchasing this album, because I had not heard much of Shai Linne, and he also had a style distinct from many other Christian rappers that could possibly fail on the scale of a whole album release. Boy was I wrong! This album is amazing, and possibly my favorite Christian rap album. Shai continuously stands apart from the rest of the Christian rap circle, both lyrically and thematically. On the first point, he has a flow that mimics some of the best rappers of the late 90s east coast style, and it works magnificently. His lyrical focus is less on punchlines and more on clever rhymes and phrasing, which makes his flow really, well, flow.

On the thematic point, this album is presented as a collection of stories of different people, in different times, from different viewpoints, and is a motif that Shai sticks to without compromise. His desire to stick to this framework is very admirable and gives the album an awesome kind of weight. I can even forgive the couple of songs for which this doesn't really work, such as "Simple Love Story". Because for the most part, it works fantastically: "As The Hour Draws Near"/"Letter From the Grave" is uncompromisingly deep and personal, while "Martyrs" literally gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it. Shai's lyrical and thematic efforts are absolutely perfected in "Wake Up, You're Alive", a haunting allegory of personal revelation. If you could only listen to one track on this album, that one is it. If you love both God and hip-hop, you need this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars And the Pulitzer goes to... May 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For those who have enjoyed past Shai Linne albums, Storiez, is no disappointment. Shai bangs out topic after topic; from a "Simple Love Story", to a glimpse into the lives of a Jewish family on the first Passover celebration in Egypt.

This CD spans the range of human emotion, being both lighthearted, with "Penelope Judd", and extremely somber, with "Letter from the Grave" and "Martyrs".

Overall, this is a very satisfying offering from one of LampMode's premier artists. If you like Christian Rap, Theology, or the God of the universe, this is the CD for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistency and excellence November 3, 2009
Format:Audio CD
While almost all hip hop artists, even the greats, produce a mediocre album at some point, shai linne still continues to shine lyrically, theologically and musically. While I personally prefer his sophomore work, "The Atonement" due to the dark soundscape and arrangement of the songs, Storiez, is a much more accessible work, giving the listener uncompromising theology, without compromising lyricism and production quality. Storiez is an album to be enjoyed by those who like every sub-genre of hip hop from pop to underground. A must buy for the hip hop purist.

5.0 out of 5 stars DW on Stories January 29, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
It's difficult to say any album of his is better then another. To me Shai Linne makes perfect 10 classics every album. The source should give this dude 5 mics & verse of the month constantly. Shai is not only better then most christian rappers, dude can burn at least 90% of all worldly emcees. People ain't on his level. Buy the album, & the other 2 & prepare to hear the word of God put in hip hop formation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like a short sermon in every song June 3, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy Shai Linne's music because it is relevant truth spoken. I think of these songs almost like short sermons because they teach such good stuff in a few minutes. I love how these songs take someones thoughts during serious situations and rhyme them beautifully. I'm honestly not a fan of rap, but the way Shai Linne does it is different. The message is clearly more important than the means. It's all about honoring God and speaking his truths. It's definitely not about Shai or a cool beat. That being said, this is not my favorite album of his (I think Atonement is much better) and there are only specific songs I really like in this one.

My favorite songs on this album are

As The Hour Draws Near/Letter From the Grave (reminiscent of The Rich Man and Lazarus in Luke 16)
Spurgeon (I never knew what a great man Spurgeon was until I heard this song)
Greatest Story Ever Told (Phenomenal wrap up of Man's situation and God's redemption)

Other songs that are excellent by Shai that aren't on this album are:

Through My Eyes
My Portion
Jesus is Alive
Throne of Grace
Triune Praise
In Adam All Die

I wish there were more christian rappers like Shai. I haven't found any that rap as beautifully and truthfully as he does.
