The record only features original members Band and guitarist Aaron Kamin along with a variety of session musicians.

The album deals with romantic love and relationships.

Despite radio-friendly singles and relentless touring by the band, the album was viewed by many as under-promoted by the label and a commercial disappointment compared to the success of their first album.

Like their debut, the album contains 12 tracks and is slightly over 40 mins.

Two (Earshot album)

Two is the second album by alternative metal band Earshot, released on June 29, 2004.

Studio work on the album began in late 2002 after extensive touring.

"Wait" became the album's lead single. Although it did not chart as well as the band's debut single, "Get Away," "Wait" is considered a breakthrough hit for the band and helped launch them into further mainstream success. It was featured on various soundtracks and made appearances in other media as well. Its music video was also rather successful.

Earshot appeared on Headbangers Ball in promotion of Two. In early 2005, they returned from the road in support of their second release and left their record label.

Two (TV series)

Two is a Canadian drama series which aired from September 1996 to June 1997. It featured Michael Easton as Gus McClain, a college professor from Seattle who is framed for the murder of his wife by his twin brother Booth Hubbard (Easton in a dual role). Hubbard, whose existence had previously been unknown to McClain, committed several murders while assuming McClain's identity, leaving Gus on the run from the FBI. Complicating matters more was that Booth had a brain tumor that could kill him at any moment and leave Gus without a way to clear himself. The primary FBI investigator in the case was Theresa "Terry" Carter ( Barbara Tyson), whose partner was a victim of Hubbard and does not believe his claims of a twin brother. It featured Andrew Sikes as a recurring character trying to help McClain.

Due to low ratings, the show was canceled after one year.

Two (1964 film)

Two: A Film Fable is a 1964 black-and-white short film directed by an Indian director Satyajit Ray. The film was made under the banner of Esso World Theater at the request of a non-profit American public broadcasting television, PBS. It was made as part of a trilogy of short films from India. The other two films in the trilogy featured Indian Sitar player, Pandit Ravi Shankar and a Ballet troupe from Mumbai, then known as "Bombay". Ray, who worked prominently for Bengali cinema, was requested to make a film in English language with a Bengali setting, however Ray being an admirer of silent film decided to make a film without any dialogue as a tribute to the genre.

The short film shows an encounter between a child of a rich family and a street child, through rich kid's window. The film is made without any dialogue and displays attempts of One-upmanship between kids in their successive display of their toys. The film portrays the child-rivalry with the help of world of noise and that of music. The film is among less known films of Ray but experts rated the film as one of Ray's best. It is often regarded as a prelude to another Ray film, Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne (1969). Made during the Vietnam War, experts believe that the film makes "a strong anti-war statement" as it ends with street kid's flute sound overpowering sound of expensive toys.

Academy Film Archive, part of the Academy Foundation, took an initiative to restore Satyajit Ray's films and could successfully restore 19 Ray films. Two was preserved in 2006. The film's original script was included in a book named Original English Film Scripts Satyajit Ray, put together by Ray's son Sandip Ray.

In addition to Gilmore, ten various artists are heard, including guitarist Tim Reynolds. The album was recorded in the Dave Matthews Band's Haunted Hollow Studio, and features several tracks which were performed live by Soko throughout the 1990s, as well as several new studio songs, and a cover of The Beatles' " Rain."
