Album Review

Progressive rock trio Cairo's third release should provide heaps of entertainment for those who enjoy the multi-layered keyboard inventions of ELP, Yes, and many of the fabled '70s and early-'80s British Canterbury Scene aggregations. Here, the band garners assistance from guitarist Brian Hutchinson, bassist John Evans, and others, as the outfit's modus operandi consists of memorably melodic hooks intermingled with keyboardist Mark Robertson's textured synth soundscapes, Bret Douglas' buoyant vocals, and drummer Jeff Brockman's polyrhythmic fills and disciplined rhythmic structures. Overall, the musicians convey a luminous demeanor, brimming with cleverly arranged motifs and purposeful soloing amid a bevy of well-placed twists and turns to coincide with a series of affecting opuses and lyrically rich themes. Thus, the band's tasteful concoction of previously applied concepts melded into a contemporary or novel sound and style makes for a thoroughly engaging listening experience. — progressive rock lovers should find quite a bit to be revved up about with this craftily arranged and altogether compelling presentation.

Cairo is a group that I recently discovered on Itunes. If you are into Kansas, Saga, Camel, ELP, Yes and others you will not be disappointed with this. Not exactly speed prog like Dream Theater but still very uptempo. The keyboard/guitar/drums interplay is accomplished and the vocals while sounding more mainstream/pop are a good fit for the music and complex arrangements. The 1st release "Cairo" is also a quality debut and this effort continues with that direction. Cairo also has another release "Conflict and Dreams" which is not available on Itunes. I was very fortunate to obtain that one in a used CD store. Great band that warrants further attention.

Great album

The group self-produced their eponymous debut at their home studio, releasing it in 1994 on the Magna Carta label. The album showed a heavy ELP-influenced keyboard sound and high-pitched vocals that bore similarities to Yes's frontman, Jon Anderson. The band spent two years working on...
