Two Pages is an album by the English band 4hero, which was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize in 1998 (see 1998 in music). Many cite it as very influential on the broken beat sound emerging around this time.[2]

A connected remix album called Two Pages Remixed was released shortly after the original album in Japan only, with an alternatively titled Two Pages Reinterpretations being released the following year in the UK. Both featuring remixes by many of their contemporaries, but with slightly differing tracks on each.
