R.E.O./T.W.O. is the second LP released by the Illinois based rock band REO Speedwagon. Under the leadership of guitarist Gary Richrath, this album continued the musical direction set on 1971's REO Speedwagon with Richrath's own classic compositions carrying the record.
R.E.O./T.W.O launched REO on its first national tour and presented a more polished production than the band‘s debut album; however it still retained the progressive rock leanings that they were to ditch following the arrival of Mike Murphy and did not even have a slightly successful single to rival “Sophisticated Lady”. Despite this and R.E.O./T.W.O.’s failure to dent the Billboard Top 200, it has remained more readily available than the debut.
The album introduced Kevin Cronin as vocalist and contributing song writer to the band, replacing Terry Luttrell. Highlights of the album include Richrath’s “Golden Country”, a compelling political statement with possibly his finest guitar solo as well as "Like You Do". Both songs, as well as Cronin’s “Music Man”, are frequently part of the band's current setlist.
