Overview

Two finds vocalist Alex Band and instrumentalist Aaron Kamin ditching their peripheral Calling brethren in favor of going it alone. It's also the follow-up to Camino Palmero, their impossibly successful debut that featured the lite FM hit "Wherever You Will Go." That song's formula is revisited repeatedly here, as Band and Kamin unleash a neutered firestorm of MOR rock. "Our Lives," "Things Will Go My Way," and "Chasing the Sun" all drift straightforwardly between Matchbox Twenty and U2, incorporating elements of both but rarely making much of an impression beyond a resigned sigh. The late-album entry "Dreaming in Red" offers a bit of sass, but not enough to scare anyone. Two should help the Calling keep whatever fans it made with Camino Palmero.

Well, I absolutely LOVED Camino Palmero, and thought that there was no way possible for TWO to be as good at it... but I was proven wrong!! This CD is great! Alex and Aaron are so talented! I think that anything they put there mind to will be fabulous as well.. I highly recomend this CD to anyone that appreciates good music!

I was a bit skeptical about this new album by The Calling. After all, I own four different copies of their first release and thought nothing could top it. Well, I am happy to report that my fears were in vain! 'Two' is an amazing sophomore project full of inspired lyrics and beautiful melodies, and ranks every bit as high as their first CD, 'Camino Palmero'. From the haunting story of 'Somebody Out There', the angst of 'Things Will Go My Way', and the honesty of 'Surrender', to the encouragement of 'Our Lives', 'Believing' and 'Your Hope', this musical collection will satisfy the consumate Calling fan and create new ones as well.

THE CD IS GREAT! EVEN BETTER THEN COMINO PALMERO, MORE PERSONALITY. A LITTLE MONOTONOUS, BUT WHAT CD ISN'T. THIS CD IS GREAT!!

Where are the lyrics to go with the great melodies & vocals that I was expecting after the last album?
Guest More than 1 year ago
Alex Band and Aaron Kamin, although in favour of going it alone without past band members, have once again been able to produced an amazing record!

I'm a huge fan of The Calling and of course as a fan I bought this album the day it came out. This album is just pure genious, I have to say that I think Camino Palmero is lots better but then again, I'd give CP 20 stars if possible so Two is def worth those 5. Faves are One By One, things Will Go My Way, Chasing The Sun, Believing, Anything and Somebody Out There but that is not to say the others suck, in fact I love them all to death.

"Two" is a great cd. A definite must buy. Alex and Aaron still have the melodies, voices, and messages we came to love in "Camino Palmero", but up the anty with even deeper messages. They address serious issues that everyone has dealt with, with an optimistic out-look that is very inspirational. It brings you up when you're feeling down, instead of taking you down further. I love this cd, and would recommend it to anybody.

I think this is the second part of Camino Palmero, cause its realy similar, but they have their differences. Its great they don´t play songs with the same theme, but I prefer the love songs cause I think its the calling strong side. I love almost every song but two. I reccomend it.

well i think its beautiful. touched me anyway and im sure so many others too. its different somehow with a more optimistic and upbeat twist. it tackled issues in great variations where every living, breathing person can relate to. i'll say it again, its beautiful. great music, wonderful vocals, and real, straight from the heart lyrics.

*Wow i dont even know what to say about this album its so incredibly amazing. i fell in love with this band the first time i listened to their first album but this album rox even more. Alex's vocals are awsome. Very deep hypnotic and also sexy. I love how the rhythm, the beat and the instruments are put together. I think everyone can relate to the songs. The meaning of each song just blew my mind away, so i highly recommend everyone to go and buy it. Their first album is really great as well. I truly love their music.

I waited a long time for this CD, and it was worth the wait. I like every song on this CD, some more than others(my favorites are "One By One" and "Chasing The Sun"). If you liked CP, you will love "Two".

The calling is the best band. Alex Band have a increible voice and Aaron Carmin is the best in the guitar.

Two is so great, I cant belive it. It contains both slow songs and some more "faster" songs, how great. As a The Calling-fan I say that I love it, but even if I werent a TC-fan I would still love it, it fits everyone and everyone can relate to the lyrics. These guys are so talanted that I wonder if its true sometimes. a "have to buy", for sure. BUY IT

The new album, for which we were waiting so long, is just great. The songs are very emotional and there is a song for every situation in your live. You have to smile when hear the song "Chasing the sun" and you can cry with songs like "If only" and "Your hope". Alex` voice is also much better( if this is possible) than on the first record. He catches the highest and the deepest parts and i can`t stop listening this record. The voice, the songs and the music makes this album the best I´ve ever heard. Everbody should have a copy of it!
