The Glow Pt. 2 is The Microphones' seventh studio album, released in September 2001 through K Records. It is considered by many to be The Microphones' definitive work. The Glow [Pt. 1] was the title of the fourth track on his previous album It Was Hot, We Stayed in the Water. A reissue with a bonus disc of material was released by K Records in 2008.

Pitchfork Media named The Glow Pt. 2 as the top album of 2001,[8] and #73 on their 200 Top Albums of the 2000s.[9] Tiny Mix Tapes named it the 5th best album of the 2000s.[10]

According to the booklet that is included with the album, The Glow Pt. 2's cover originates from an antique Dutch cookbook titled "Calvé-Delft's Winterboekje", which was printed around 1940.[11]
