Two Steps from the Move is the fifth studio album by the Finnish rock band Hanoi Rocks, released in 1984. This is their last album to feature the late drummer Razzle. Before this album, all of Hanoi Rocks' albums were released on Lick Records and Johanna Kustannus, but this was the band's first album on a major label. Originally the album was supposed to be called Silver Missiles And Nightingales, but the name was changed at the last minute.
The album's producer, Bob Ezrin had previously worked with big-name artists like Pink Floyd, Kiss and Alice Cooper, which was one of the main reasons Hanoi Rocks wanted him to produce the album. Ezrin wanted the album to have a heavier atmosphere and darker guitar playing than the band's previous efforts, while still keeping it melodic and punky, and he also worked on the writing of almost every song on the album.
Two Steps from the Move was Hanoi Rocks' biggest hit when it was released, reaching #28 on the UK Album Charts, along with the singles "Up Around The Bend" and "Don't You Ever Leave Me". The album also gave Hanoi Rocks their first gold record in Finland, but not until 1986 after the group had already disbanded.
Two Steps from the Move is often considered as a glam rock/hard rock classic and is available as a limited edition of 2000 individually numbered copies on translucent red coloured vinyl and includes an insert
