Album by Two, a project of Rob Halford's (of Judas Priest fame), released in 1998 on Nothing/Interscope Records. Voyeurs is Two's only release and the band members seem to have gone on to other projects. Two began when Halford and John Lowery began writing songs together. Later, Trent Reznor (of Nine Inch Nails and Nothing Records), after hearing some of their demo work, offered Halford a record deal. Halford explains in an interview on nyrock.com* that Reznor contacted him and said after listening to the demo recordings that he had the idea of breaking down the songs and building them up again differently. Reznor is credited as executive producer on Voyeurs.

The album is a lot different than the sound usually associated with Rob Halford. Voyeurs has a generally metal feel but some of its songs have a rather pop-ish feel to them (e.g. "Deep in the Ground," "Hey, Sha La La"). As a whole the album isn't particularly noteable or exceptional save the last song, "Bed of Rust," which I think of as a diamond in the rough compared to the other songs on the album. The other songs aren't particularly bad, just not all that outstanding.
