Product Description

This is the seventh live Stones album and the second to appear in three years. Now, what do you want to bet the three men who've appeared on every one of them--Mick, Keith, and Charlie--couldn't name them without a cheat sheet? Chances are, they won't remember this one in five years. Culled from the Bridges to Babylon tour, No Security feels more like a tour memento than a stand-on-its-own recording. The 13 tracks are a mix of familiar chestnuts ("Gimme Shelter," "Live with Me," "The Last Time"), welcome restorations ("Sister Morphine," "Memory Motel"), and tertiary Jagger-Richards tunes ("Flip the Switch," "Thief in the Night"). A few recruits are along for the ride: Taj Mahal turns up on the breath catcher "Corinna," Dave Matthews shares vocals with Mick on "Memory Motel," and jazzman Joshua Redman solos on "Waiting on a Friend." They're all, no doubt, quite proud to have joined these legends on stage and CD. But when they want to hear live Stones, it's a good bet even they will reach for Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out before No Security. --Steven Stolder

Review

The playing is top-notch, the song selection is not entirely predictable, and there are even soulful duets with Dave Matthews and Taj Mahal. -- Los Angeles Times

This souvenir of the venerable band's '97 tour has its moments, mixing strong newer material ("Saint of Me") with undisputed classics.... -- Entertainment Weekly

3.0 out of 5 stars Middling At Best April 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
As far as live albums go, The Rolling Stones have had a pretty shaky record. Their first concert recording, 1966's "Got Live If You Want It", suffered from vapid studio overdubbbing and muddy audio. But they made up for it with the pivotal 1970 release "Get Yer Ya - Ya's Out", which ranks among the greatest live albums ever made. 7 years later came "Love You Live", which was a bit muddy in terms of sound but showcased their exhilerating energy live. Another 4 years passed before "Still Life" was released. It was ok but suffered from bad playing and a bland song selection. 10 years passed before they struck gold with "Flashpoint", which once more proved that they could still rock. 5 years later came the classic unplugged "Stripped". 4 years wore on before 1999's "No Security", culled from their astonishing "Bridges To Bablylon" tour, one of their best in recent memory. Unfortunately, the results did not meet fans' expectations.
The thing that doesn't work is the song selection. None of the songs here are what you'd expect to hear in a regular Stones concert. No "Satisfaction", no "Jumpin' Jack Flash", not even a "Brown Sugar". What got here are 14 songs that range from great to tepid. The great songs are the older ones, including "The Last Time", "Respectable", "Waiting On A Friend" and especially "Gimme Shelter" and "Live With Me". And it was great to finally here "Sister Morphine" done live. But the majority of songs belong in the tepid category. The newer songs especially irked me. I never cared for "Thief In The Night", "Out Of Control" or "Flip The Switch".

1.0 out of 5 stars Memory Motel Jan. 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
Maybe it's my own fault that this record seems so lame, so out of touch, so down right boring--I bought it and METAMORPHOSIS, the Stone's great 1975 LP, on the same day.
When the Stones released METAMORPHOSIS they were reworking and re-releasing some classic, cutting edge, roots Rock & Roll. Jagger was still a great singer, Keith Richard an innovative guitar player, and Mick Taylor a GREAT lead guitarist. Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts were the best rhythm section around.
I guess it's the Stones playing on NO SECURITY, but you'd never know it from the sound on this second-rate live CD. It sounds more like some Stones 'tribute' band. Jagger is a mere shadow of his 60's and 70's self, the rhythm section--minus Bill Wyman--is pedestrian at best, the 'new' songs are vanilla and dull, and the renditions of classics are performed no better than your typical suburban bar band.
There are times I wish the Beatles and Led Zep had gotten back together. Then I hear a post-SOME GIRLS Stones LP and realize every band has a finite life span. I wish the Stones would just fold camp and go home; releasing this kind of record is embarrassing to listen to, and demeans what they once were.
If you think this is what the Stones were about, or has anything to do with the classic era of the band--1965-1975--you're missing the boat. They were one of the best, now they're records don't chart and their sound don't rock.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Cut It June 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Rolling Stones are still a great live act, make no mistake. Yet their last few live albums have not proven this and "No Security" is no exception.
The renditions of "Respectable" and "The Last Time" are watered down versions of their former selves and downright embarassing. Dave Matthews is featured on a forgettable "Memory Motel", an otherwise great Stones song that on this set sounds more like they are merely trying to cash in on the Dave Matthews name. There are decent performances of "You Got Me Rocking" and "Out of Control" and the big production that is now "Gimme Shelter" but still there are no real highlights here.
As a longtime fan, I own every Stones album. This is the only Rolling Stones album I ever sold after listening to, it's that bad. There are so many better recordings that your money can be spent on it is better to look elsewhere. Let's hope that someday they will release a collection of their BBC recordings as well as recordings from the great 1972 tour which spawned the now out-of-print film "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones".

5.0 out of 5 stars No Mott April 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Rolling Stones, the "Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World", has always been the claim. When you look back over the last forty years, it is a pretty hard one to dispute. Starting off playing Blues covers of their American heroes to a faithful few in South London's Youth Clubs, to worldwide domination of both the album charts and, starting up and then ruling ground breaking huge money making Stadium Rock. Of course, along the way there have been various ups and downs that, if anybody had written down as a work of fiction, people would of claimed it to have been too preposterous to be anywhere near the truth. After a few cover songs to break them into the British charts (including the fabulous 'I wanna be your Man', written for them by "The Beatles"), Jagger - Richards started writing hits of their own, which would in turn be covered by almost every band that followed in their footsteps. Hit albums followed with more hit singles; successful tours in all parts of the globe... Then it all went momentarily wrong. Original leader and guitarist Brian Jones left the band and then mysteriously drowned in his own swimming pool; drug busts and prison sentences (later squashed after famously being compared to using a rack to crush a butterfly in an open letter to "The Times"); a failed Single; difficulty with confectionery; and the keyboard seat becoming about as welcome as the drum stool in Spinal Tap. The boys proved that, although they looked and acted as the proverbial dirty rockers, there was a fair amount of grey matter there too, so more hit singles were written, more international bestselling albums were released, and more than all their peers, The Stones kept on rolling.

I don't have this cd, and therefore my rating is simply there because I had to rate it. I'm writing this in response to Johny Lena's completely useless and idiotic review. Read more

This is bad. So bad, all I can say is, "Well, you CAN judge a book by its cover."
