4 stars I only recently found out about this album, I had Conflict and Dreams in my posession for a long time before I discovered this one. In my opinion C & D is better but this one is quite good for a debut. The build-up is well done because each song is better than the previous as the album goes on although the middle four are more or less equal in quality. I like the way Cairo handles their compositions. A great mix of instrumental and vocal parts where the instrumental solos are long and melodic. To me that's even the most important reason I love progressive music so much.

Their highlight in my opinion is not by coincidence Ruins at Avalon's Gate, the longest and last song of the album.

Another one where I have to choose between 4 and 5 stars, but it's not entirely perfect so I have to go for the 4.
