Artist: Peter Gabriel
Genre: Rock
Release Date: May 2002

Review by Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck
3½ stars out of 4

Peter Gabriel's fourth release titled "Security," (only in America to generate better sales than his previous self-titled releases) was the album that put him over the top in the U.S. This was due in large part to the smash international hit "Shock The Monkey," which by the way has never sounded better. Although the dark and serious side was still present in Gabriel's atmospheric soundtracks and lyrics, there was a new lighter and more rhythmically complex element due to a lot of percussion, giving it all a decidedly Latin world flavor. This was the beginning of a new era for Gabriel and rock music as whole, with many artists following his lead.

I found this to be a fine effort with the tried and true Gabriel atmospheric touch in place with polished production and the usual stellar musicianship provided by key people performing and producing in all phases of the musical processes. This was the beginning of a new phase is Peter's career, what was to come next would move Gabriel to yet another level, giving him a more powerful presence in several segments of the music industry.
