3 stars After a succesfull first album, not necesarly in sells terms but more in musical terms, the second Fireballet album entitled Two, too from 1976 is a bit of let down. They changend their symphonic prog aproach to a more mainstream , I don't know how to call it, Hollywoodian cabaret, if exist such thing, sometimes I have the impression I've listen to some Broadway story with Fred Astaire on leading role here. They almost drop that good prog elements from the first album and turned them here a more accesible way, but, there is a but, some pieces are really god, at least for me: the opening track Great expectations with a Styx feel to it , It's about time, Carrolon are good symphonic pieces, instrumental speaking, because the voice and the vocal parts are awful. A not so bad album after all, not a special one either, some moments are good with great mellotron and guitar arrangements, but the voice ruins everything. So, a 2.5 stars for this second album, but because the good moments are in more cantity than the bad ones, I will rounded up to 3. Less good than the first one, but not so bad Like many considered this album to be. My CD version is from Passport records, beside the first album from this CD, on this version remastered, the second album is all here as bonus, featuring 7 tracks, more like two in one.
