iTunes Editors’ Notes

The fourth solo album by former Genesis singer Peter Gabriel suffuses the dank electro-haze of his previous collection with intriguing doses of world-beat that trumped Kate Bush's similar conceits on The Dreaming, in many ways the album's 1982 artistic bookend. Gabriel often conjures drama from the album's masterful sense of dynamics, a sensibility that often seem as important as the songs here, as he sets up his unlikely breakthrough MTV hit "Shock the Monkey" and the fervent "I Have the Touch" via often brooding, gothic soundscapes such "San Jacinto" and "The Family and the FishingNet." Security is the challenging pinnacle of Gabriel prog-rooted stylistic invention — and a far cry from his Gabriel's good-natured R&B hit "Sledgehammer."

Customer Reviews

Essential Gabriel

While best known for the hit SHOCK THE MONKEY, tracks I HAVE THE TOUCH and KISS OF LIFE are easily 2 of the best in Gabriel's entire catalog. Very addictive.

The Best

I dont care how many hits peter gabriel has that play on an endless loop on the classic rock staions, or that shock the monkey is one of them. I do care that this album get the recognition it deserves. These songs(especialy "lay your hands on me" and "wallflower") made such a lasting impression on me. I am only 22 and I love these songs so much more than the mindless drivel that is constantly spewed from the "top 40" bands or whatever they are called. Peter Gabriel is an amazing artist.

no security...

For reasons uncertain, iTunes has reveiwed Peter's first release ("Peter Gabriel" with the cover-picture of him looking up through a rainy windshield), not "Security." I don't think Peter has put out a bad album and this one is no exception. Each of his albums have their own standouts, but I particularly like the opening track, "Rhythm of the Heat," as it demonstrates how he often begins with a rhythm track and builds around it. The ending of that song, with his sustained cry accompanied by the increased tempo of the percussion, is one of those goose-bump moments in music. Not to imply that the rest of the album isn't up to par. There's not a bad track in the bunch. ("Wallflower," by the way, was used as an instrumental track on his sountrack to the film "Birdy," which is itself a wonderful set of moody songs.)

As the leader of Genesis in the early '70s, Peter Gabriel helped move progressive rock to new levels of theatricality. He was no less ambitious as a solo artist, but he was more subtle in his methods. With his first eponymous solo album in 1977, he began exploring darker, more cerebral territory, incorporating avant-garde, electronic, and worldbeat influences into his music. The record, as well as its two similarly titled successors, established Gabriel as a critically acclaimed cult artist, and...
