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.

I just bought this c.d.!! It's sooo awesome!! As good as Camino Palmero, if not better. It's much more upbeat. Everyone go buy it! These guys are amazing!

This Cd is phenomenal. iT BLOWS Camino Palmera to shame, CP just had one same basic tone, low, this CD is upbeat and is sure to be on the charts soon.

Where are the lyrics to go with the great melodies & vocals that I was expecting after the last album?

The follow up CD to The Calling's debut CD (Camino Palmero) will not disappoint die hard fans and will draw in a whole new audience. The CD has everything, beautiful music, heartfelt lyrics and an overall uplifting message. It's one of those rare CDs that you can't skip over even one song.

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".

What a great follow up to Camino Palmero!!! I think that lyrically it is better than CP, and I think that Aaron Kamin & Alex Band have grown so much as song writers. Alex's deep vocals make each song a very moving experience!! This CD is a MUST HAVE for any serious alternative rock music fan!!

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.

This is such an amazing CD and you can tell that Alex and Aaron poured their hearts out in all of the songs! This shows true talent and if you are in need of a great CD I recommened this and Camino Palmero :)

this album rocks..i haven't got an album that really sounds positive like this one..you can listen to this whenever you're down and it will lift up your spirits!

I had to give this CD a couple of listens before it really affected me, but now I love it. This sophmore effort features strong, heartfelt vocals once again from Alex Band, especially on the tracks "Things Will Go Way" and "Anything." It is so refreshing to be able to understand the lyrics and appreciate the melodies, which is so uncommon with new bands today. Give the CD a couple of listens before passing judgment. You'll be hooked in no time!

This is a mature second offering from the talented duo Aaron and Alex. A good mix of catchy tunes boasting beautifully crafted lyrics with everything from touching ballads to edgier rock classics. Each song can't fail to delight! No CD collection would be complete without II.

The new songs in Two are something that most of us can relate to. They are emotional and yet catchy, something that they always focus on because that's what set them apart from the other bands, they don't do screaming just because they're a rock band, they just simply rock. If you liked songs from Hoobastank, Creed, Maroon 5, Matchbox Twenty, Five for Fighting or Three Doors Down, you'll LOVE The Calling. The first time I listened to it, I thought it was a disappointment, HOWEVER, I listened to it again with the lyric booklet in hand and I LOVED it. It was awesome and I can't believe I thought it was a disappointment because it totally WASN'T. Awesome's the word.

I must say it is very hard to say which "one" song is my favourite because they are ALL equally brilliant! Yes we did wait for a long while for there second album but it was well worth the wait and you can tell that they put a lot of thought into their music. The lyrics of every song speak to so many different people and it's about everyday life. Brilliant!

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

Yes, the headline is true. I almost forgot my friend after I bought this CD. Now I have played TWO for them and they loved it to. It´s great!

Once again, The Calling have outdone it for themselves. Another amazing album with creative, meaningful songs that can relate to our very own lives! I can't wait for yet a thrid album and hope the songs from that will be drilled into my brain just liek this 'Two' Has!

First off, I would like to thank Alex and Aaron for penning such meaningful lyrics and making them into good music! FANTASTIC!!! Two is the best so far as it is much different than the first one. Two words to describe TWO: Honest & Passionate! A few of my favs would be One By One, Things Will Go My Way, Chasing The Sun, Anything, If Only and of course Our Lives!!! Well, for the record, the whole album…:)! I will recommend this to any avid fans of The Calling and all others because it’s worth it. The music’s fabulous and Alex’s voice brilliant! :)
