Techno For Two is a John Taylor solo album, released by Cutting Edge Records / Avex Trax on 11 April 2001.

About the albumEdit

The musical style of the album is not techno, but wide ranging from acoustic guitar to electronic age, as songs such as "Mister J" and "Nagel Baby" suggest. Some of the tracks show an influence from The Beatles and Roxy Music.

The album includes an evolved version of "Mister J", a track released as an early recording on John Taylor's Meltdown in 1999. The song "6000 Miles" was co-written with Matthew Hager.

Comments from John Taylor:
This is an album of songs that show who I am as a person, how my mind works, and what I am into. Its not really a techno album, that's a joke, it's meaning is more along the lines of 'twenty-first century soul'. There are songs about lovers and friends, children and brothers, and songs about parts of my own personality I wish didn't exist! I think some of these songs are among the best I have written, in particular "Immortal" and "6000 Miles".
