4 stars Another powerful progressive rock trio,CAIRO came from San Fransisco and were signed by Magna Carta around early/mid-90's.This fact was followed by the release of their first eponymous work.From the first notes the style of the band was easy to be described.Powerful and energetic progressive rock with fascinating bombastic keyboards,aggresive guitars,superb solos and dynamic vocals.The main figure,keyboardist Mark Robertson,must be a great KEITH EMERSON-fan,as he plays with tremendous energy and fills every empty hole with heavy keyboard passages,complex solos and unbelievable acrobatics,strongly accompanied by the great virtuosic guitar riffs. Additionally,the interplays between guitars and keyboards are numerous and very well-arranged.An absolutely satisfying work for anyone who wants to clear out what exactly powerful/complex/symphonic progressive rock means!
