I was in high school when Shai came out. A classmate asked me have I ever heard of them and I told him no. Man, I watched Video Soul that night and "If I Ever" came on. I was completely blown away by the beat and then I saw Garfield Bright and he took it to another level. I was bait,hook,line and sinker. As I grew older, I got more into their lyrics and the overall message they were trying to send. It was about Love,Life,Education,Poverty,Happiness,Sadness,etc.
I love these guys. All of them and it has been a life long dream just to meet them and vibe with them. I just hate that the industry they're in is showing them no love whatsoever.
But as I read the reviews here, I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way. Who could ever forget "Together Forever".That is like the ultimate wedding song. Can you imagine walking down the aisle to eternity to a song of that magnitude? These fellas need their fans. I heard through the grapevine they supposed to have a new album coming out sans Carl Martin. A part of me still hopes he will rejoin the group,but who knows?
They have a fan in me for life
Peace

When people think of Shai (Carl Martin, Marc Gay, Darnell VanRensalier, Garfield Bright, Carl "Groove" Martin), they think of the smooth silkiness of their voices, which usually makes such weaknesses, on their debut, easy to ignore.
At the close of 1992, the urban contemporary vocal quartet missled to the top of the pop and R&B charts with their extremely, harmony-rich, successful debut album, ...If I Ever Fall in Love, not to mention the number one, gorgeous, title track. Though, the single isn't the only flat-out impressive track here. The new jack swing numbers, "Free," (which the foursome only raps on) and "Waiting For The Day," are as good as anything the genre had ever offered, with the second having a hook similar to the Janet Jackson/Luther Vandross duet, "The Best Things In Life Are Free." There are more signs of promise on the Jodeci sound-a like tracks, "Don't Wanna Play," and the catchy "Changes," but the highlight moment on the second half of the album is the huge hit "Baby I'm Yours" (No. 10 Billboard, No. 19 R&B). It's a captivating number, thats shows-off the vocal quartets vocal talents, in terms of seductive vocal-harmonizing. The Whistle influenced piano ballad, "Together Forever," is absolutely beautiful as is the enticing hit "Comforter" (No. 10 Billboard, No. 4 R&B).
Most of the material doesn't match Shai's vocal talents, but they do not lack quality material like most early-90 group's.

Being that I am an huge Shai fan, I thought their first cd was the bomb. Every song on that cd you could bob your head to. They mixed jazzy beats with romantic tunes. "Together Forever" and "Comforter" were(are) the ultimate love songs. Although Shai didn't get their much needed props on their two follow up albums (Blackface and Destiny). I thought they showed a more mature side. If you haven't picked up "Blackface" and "Destiny," stop what you're doing and go pick it up NOW!

Album is nice from start to end, and versatile as they are able to have upbeat songs integrated in the album. Outside of the singles, right now I'm stuck on Waiting for the Day and Don't Wanna Play. It's always a shame when you think about how record companies messed over such talent from the 90s, including many other groups, until we have whatever it is we have now.

I first heard Shai , while sitting in dorm back freshman yr of college in South.. many yrs ago. I heard the song on the schools radio station and heard Dj say that they were a group from Howard University. They really stood out because they were singing a song Acapella "If I ever fall in love". I loved their harmony..beautiful voices. I loved that song and comforter, but didn't really listen to rest of CD back then. I recently decided to purchase it out of curiousity, and was pleasantly surprised.I love all the songs. This Cd is great to have ..for all the Shai fans! if I wasn't a true fan back then I certainly am now!

This album was a gem. I loved every track from the word "go" except Flava (which eventually grew on me).
I haven't heard a group sound this tight in a long time. What ever happened to SHAI? I miss their harmonies. They will never be a one hit wonder in my eyes.
In my mind Shai will be together forever. This is a must-have CD if you grew up in the eighties. Unforgetable music.

This album may have a few average songs but the good songs more than compensate. It is very rare for a song to be a classic and If I Ever Fall In Love again is the classic r&b song of our generation. It has already been remade by a European group (they love to rip off good US music). This cd also contains my all time favorite song, Comfortor. I bought this when it first came out in 1992 and I still listen to Comfortor on a regular basis. It just will never go out of style. Another standout is Baby I'm Yours, a song about the vurnerability one feels when first falling in love. This song continues to uplift me. I really do believe that R&B has fallen off. Now everyone wants to be a thug and mediocre songs sell because they have a big name attached (hint R.Kelly). And don't get me started on Ashanti, she can't sing and she can't dance so who is she entertaining? I don't even listen to the radio anymore, most of my friends don't, its all garbage. Instead I rather listen to my early 90's R&B, the good old days when we had Boyz II Men, Jodeci, Shai, Silk, back when R.Kelly wrote songs about adult women. Back when Monica and Brandy actually put out good albums.
