Title - 'Live 2'
Artist - Security Project

The timeless music of Peter Gabriel once again lovingly finds new life with The Security Project. Members of King Crimson, Shriekback and Gabriel's original band take another live shot at Gabriel's classics and give them new wings for the 21st Century. Added to the pedigree of these players is the voice of Brian Cummins. His startling interpretations add a haunting authenticity to the live shows, of this you yourself will also concur, given just the one listening. Trust me. He's just that Gabriel-precise.

This Live 2 CD (Live 1 was released May 6th, 2016) is a first for no one has dared take on Gabriel's material at this level before. These immaculate arrangements show a live band brewing something deep from these original musical recipes. With Gabriel now a double-inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (both with Genesis as well as his solo career), the Security Project expertly reimagines Peter Gabriel’s groundbreaking early output, creating an immersive experience both in performance and on its debut release Live 1.

1. 'Family Snapshot'
2. 'Moribund the Burgermeister'
3. 'Humdrum'
4. 'Mercy Street'
5. 'Wallflower'
6. 'White Shadow'
7. 'Father, Son'
8. 'The Lamb Lies Down On Brodway'
9. 'Fly On A Windshield'
10. 'On The Air'

The Security Project kicks off in fine style with 'Family Snapshot,' a song that appeared on Gabriel's third eponymous 1980 album, but it's on both 'Moribund the Burgermeister' and 'Humdrum' that the essence of Gabriel's original vocal tone ate truly brought to life. I mean, wow, honestly, if you shut your eyes you would swear that the stunning vocals of Cummins were actually that of the man himself, Gabriel. Incredible.

Next up is a provocative, endearing 'Mercy Street' ("This is from me to you and proves that everyone deserves just a little bit of mercy", Cummins first relates to the crowd), and that's backed by the haunting storytelling of 'Wallflower', off his fourth album self-titled 1982 album. That's backed by 'White Shadow', a cut from Gabriel's second solo album, interestingly enough, on original LP pressings of the album, 'White Shadow' (which was the last song on Side One) continued into the run-off groove, causing the track to play continuously until the tonearm was lifted from the record!

The beautiful 'Father, Son' is next, and boy, what a fantastic job the Security Project do of Gabriel's song. With lyrics such as "Locked as one, In this empty room. Spine against spine, Yours against mine", it's an intense track that Cummins and company more than take control of. That's followed by the Genesis classic 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway', the title track of their sixth studio album released (as a double album) in 1974. As long here as it ever was then, the song is a joy to behold and is well appreciated by the live audience come its end.

And, sadly, talking of the end, this fabulous follow up album is rounded out by 'Fly On A Windshield' ("And I'm hovering like a fly, waiting for the windshield on the freeway") - also from the aforementioned The Lamb Lies Down album - and the guys wrap the live show with a brilliant 'On The Air' from his 1978 album.

With each and every track eerily brought to life, time after time by the hugely talented Cummins, this Live 2 album - which comes in a six-panel, three-fold package, with artwork by Julia Hensley - is, yet again re: Live 1 one of the best albums to come out in the past decade.

The Security Project - Jerry Marotta: Drums & Percussion, Backing Vocals; Trey Gunn: Warr Guitar, Backing Vocals; Brian Cummins: Lead Vocals; Michael Cozzi (replacing Fuzzbee Morse): Guitars, Flute, Backing Vocals; David Jameson: Keyboards & Eigenharp - tours worldwide throughout the year, and have an East Coast one lined up for October to coincide with this release. If I were you I would check out your local venues to see if they are coming to your town soon.
