2 stars Well, this ones quite different from their debut Night On A Bald Mountain. The cover is simply hideous and it certainly a not good invitation to see whats inside the album. But the content is not that bad. There are some good parts that remind their early Yes influences, but Im not really sure what they wanted with Two, too...most of the time their music is like a soundtrack of a Broadway musical or something like that. In some parts they seem to be emulating Styx around the time (the opener Great Expectations is a good exemple). Sometimes they go prog mix with jazz and cabaret music (Chinatown Boulevard). Other tracks have a Kansas feel on it on the instrumental parts while the vocals keep a strange jazzy twist. And so on...

While their musicanship remains as strong as ever, Two, too... is a kind of transitional album, very experimental and not altogether a successful one, even if it does have its good moments. Maybe they would eventually find an interesting very own sound if they had the chance to go on. since this one was their last, well probably never know what they were aiming at (if they were aiming at something at all). The result is interesting but very far away from the music they played on their debut. Be warned. My rating: something between 2 and 2,5 stars.
