"I almost didn't buy this album after reading the reviewer who gave this album two stars. I'm glad I was hard headed. Most of the tracks have a nice beat, and the lyrical content is solid. Banner has some enlightening words on a few tracks, but still manages to have several certified bangers. My favorite tracks are, "So Long," "Get Like Me," "9mm," "Suicide Doors," "KO," and "Ball With Me." Pick it up, you won't be disappointed."
Not CERTIFIED, but a great story non the less

"Ok, I will admit this album is no Certified, which was a great album if you ask me. But it does have alot of high moments. Songs like Suicide Doors, with the great UGK, Get Like Me, So Long, B.A.N.(which is hilarious if you watch the cartoon boondocks), and K.O. are the best songs on this album. Some songs are not the greatest because the are just not produced right, or have appearances that dont make too much sense. Like Akon on 9mm... Sorry I do not look at Akon, and listen to him thinking he is going to tote a 9mm in the air, sorry just does not sound right, lol. Overall if you are a fan of David Banner, and like his production then you will enjoy this album, and with the price you can pick it up for on Amazon now, you can not pass this up it's a great deal, for a great story."
Could have been a better story

"David Banner is somewhat of an enigma. He has a level of awareness that most rappers from the south dont seem to have but he insists on making these mindless commercial records. This album has its good joints but are outweighed by the garbage joints. Suicide Doors feat UGK and Kandi is not bad. 9mm feat Akon, Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg and the song Faith are cool also. Hold On, So Long, I Get By(feat Carl Thomas) and Free are the type of songs that I wanted to hear more of from David Banner. He has two tracks which are just instrumentals(Marz and Bonus Beat Drum) which are not bad also. What ruins this album are ridiculous amounts of filler in this album. Shawty Say(feat Lil Wayne), F*** You Hoes(feat Jim Jones), Get Like Me(feat Chris Brown, Yung Joc and Jim Jones), Ball With Me(feat Chamillionaire) and Fly feat Jazze Pha are all filler. A Girl sounds like a cheap remake of Play of David Banner's last album certified. B.A.N. and K.O are just plain stupid and Cadillac's on 22s part 2 is a huge mistake and we'll just leave it at that.
Bottom Line: The Greatest Story Ever Told is far from a bad album but its not the best album that David Banner can give you. The production is good but these repetitive commercial records are easily forgettable plus this album could use more tracks like Hold On, So Long, Free and I Get By and less songs like A Girl, Shawty Say, B.A.N., Ball With Me and Get Like Me. Its safe to say that Certified is David Banner's best album in recent memory.
Standouts: SUICIDE DOORS, HOLD ON, SO LONG, I GET BY, FAITH, 9MM, MARZ AND BONUS BEAT DRUM."
