4 stars If well, their first album was a good debut, although not too original. On this two is one there's much more variety, audacity and many refreshing music passages mixed in the exact moment with the right elements. This not means a musical evolution, but it's an important step on the path for getting a real identity as a band (currently many bands have the big challenge to discover and make their own sound) and ANDROMEDA is one of those bands that is doing their job pretty well.

Two is one contains 9 well distributed songs. Tracks like encyclopedia or mirages show a harder rock side, meanwhile castaway could be something like a power ballad on the record. Also there's an instrumental side represented by morphing into nothing, but I think the best part of the album is on the final with the 3 last songs; parasite (Hammond/keyboard bases are incorporated and it sounds really nice!), one in my head and this fragile surface.

In a few words, these Swedish guys have done a good balance between classy music, technique and well done music compositions. Sadly, I think they're very underestimated in the progressive music scene.
