Tracks on the album are loosely knitted around a theme of security and insecurity with the title track: Security Theater actually imagining a theater one can go to to feel safe.
Influences abound on this album, including the first track: Stone Cold Love which features Queen-like guitars and back-up vocals. The song: Biding My Time is very much influenced by Saga whereas the track: Now And Again features Yes-like backing harmonies. For those who love Classic/Art Rock, this release is both refreshingly new and yet familiar at the same time.
