Cage biography
This Italian band is rooted in 1987, soon they took part in several shows, festivals and competitions in cities like Sienna, Rome and Milan. In 1992 CAGE got a contract from the label Toast in Torino and in the same year they released the single "View".

A year later CAGE released their first album entitled "The Feebleminded Man". In 1994 CAGE appeared on the Italian TV with a video clip but later that year several members decided to work on their own musical ideas. However, in 2000 they joined again and devoted themselves to a new project, to be heard on the demo that CAGE recorded in March 2001. In 2003 the band recorded this CD that contains songs between 1987 and 1994. CAGE appeared on the satellite channel Rock TV and is now working on further projects.


Why this artist must be listed in www.progarchives.com :
CAGE is just another fine Italian band that makes pleasant progrock featuring strong interplay ans soli from guitar and keyboards.

3 stars With a contract secured by the Musea management Cage were ready to make some noise heading for their first true studio album with totally new material, as the previous one was a collection of songs through a period of time.The band recruited singer Augusto Morelli and keyboardist Alessandro Bugliani composed all the songs for the upcoming ''Secret passage''.The album was released in 2008.

In this new album Cage added a strong jazzy flavor in the guitar parts, which now alternate between CAMEL-like smooth melodies and more virtuosic workouts akin to MR. SIRIUS and ALLAN HOLDSWORTH, but the general style is still grounded in symphonic territories with evident GENESIS influences.Actually they are now somewhere between the style of ODYSSICE and CITIZEN CAIN, trying to fit the symphonic lines of GENESIS with more guitar-based moves.Despite the presence of two keyboardists the album is nicely balanced with both guitars and keyboards in the forefront and an obvious tendency towards melodious textures and romantic arrangements full of pleasant colors.Morelli and his very PETER GABRIEL-esque vocal vibe along with the delivery of elaborate, lush compositions are another reason for the apparent GENESIS comparisons.Cage though are far from a clone.The presence of an impressive, Fusion-based guitar energy and the somewhat more nervous use of synthesizers are certainly personal elements.The atmosphere is always consistent and compelling with also some pastoral acoustic passages and lots of piano interludes as well as long, instrumental themes with mellow interplays.

Unfortunately the lack of recent activity and the absence of the band on the most well-known social web pages makes another work rather doubtless.

''Secret passages'' is among these rare albums, which combine the melodious style of Symphonic Rock with the edge of light guitar Fusion and deserves a wider recognition.Recommended.

4 stars I'll paraphrase Damo, Well, let's take a WAKE, because this album was with what I get up today. And it's a pleasant one, when listening in the morning, where no death metal is allowed (nor any other hard styles). Actually, being RPI by origin, Jazz Prog by soul and Symphonic by heart. And these guitar solos sounds quite jazzy to me too, not with noticeable odd time signatures, but odd melodies. At times. But what's the most important thing here, I like it & I hear there prog elements (like Ferum, Aurum you know, elements). Last song is simply blend of previous ones. Not copy, but more like result of meaning, why this album exists. Simply the best song here.

4(-), because even I have to agree that these songs are sometimes weak.

3 stars Opening and closing this second effort by Italian act Cage are some intriguing efforts blending jazz-tinged elements with symphonic passages, and especially on the former this makes for a very interesting experience. A real high class number, of the kind that will sway many listeners.

In between these efforts 6 less original ones reside though. By no means weak efforts, with one exception they are actually both pleasant and fascinating, but exploring a stylistic expression that will be highly familiar for many prog fans: Vintage inspired symphonic prog. And in this case highly resembling the more atmospheric material produced by Genesis in the mid 70's. Jazz-tinged bass and at times jazz-tinged piano patterns does add some original touches to these ventures, but the similarities to Genesis are strong.

Personally I find this effort to be pretty charming though, the tunes well made and well performed - with Time to Go Back Home the noteable exception in my personal opinion. One to check out for fans of 70's symphonic prog in general and Genesis in particular.

3 stars A very talented band hailing from Carrara,Italy,CAGE were found in 1987,toured constantly in the central and northy part of Italy and recorded their first ''lost'' album ''The feeble-minded man'' in 1993.Soon after they disbanded to reunite in 2000 and release a great compilation entitled ''87/94'' in 2005.This work contains material from their first early period,including the 21-min. epic ''The feeble-minded man''.Heavily influenced by bands like GENESIS,YES and KING CRIMSON,they create beautiful soundscapes based on the excellent analog-keyboard sounds,the melodic guitar parts and the needed synthesizer flights in the vein of MAGELLAN.They also make massive use of the piano to add a more symphonic feel to their compositions,while some of the complex or atmospheric guitar passages will remind you of ROBERT FRIPP.All in all,this is a very pleasant and enjoyable effort,which will be well-received by most of the prog community.

4 stars Well, let's take a walk on fleecy clouds.

Musea label has shot an wonderful arrow named CAGE from Italy. They started off in Carrara in 1987 and played lots of gigs, released some singles and an album. In 2004 they entered into a contract with Musea and this Secret Passage is their second album in Musea. Musea says this album as a superb work and it should make sense for me.

From Movements, the first track CAGE's wonderful story starts. Full of complexity and mystery, and full of kindness are in the song. Yes, it hears like flying over the rainbow or walking on the clouds for me. The Scream has a melancholic rock flavour voice sound. Chorus with some effect is like a dreamy drama and very impressive. I consider this song can put a high point on the first half. Get relaxed a bit. Bitter Honey is, for us, not bitter but sweet and leisurely. All instrumentals can sound easygoing, and can make me quiet...in spite of their progressiveness. Good sound...Marta's guitar solo. Simple refrain can take us into their cage. :-P Secret Passage is the second highlight on another half with beautiful piano solo and complex guitar and rhythm section. Although it's an instrumental track without any voice, aggressively it should talk to us...like a cute girl. Augusto's lyrical voice can be striking in the song Dreams Like Broken Glass. Feel the song be very fragile and very brilliant... Various faces (rhythmical, funky, strict and plaintive) are in Time To Go Back Home. We all be back to our CAGE with the fine song. At the last live track M31, we can fully hear their strong and strict play. Oh, my God...forgotten breathing.

Let me say the phrase; CAGE is KALEIDOSCOPE from Italy.

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

3 stars As far as I know this Italian band never released a studio album although they did release an EP which featured the 21 minute track "The Feebleminded Man" which is also on this compilation cd. The songs here were composed between 1987 and 1994 as the title suggests. The music reminded me of GENESIS at times and features some beautiful piano playing and melodic guitar.The vocals are in English and are well done.

"Again Autumn" is an instrumental and one of my favourites. We get to hear the heavenly piano playing right away before synths and drums build to a full sound. The guitar joins in and it sounds really good. There is a nice contrast between the mellower piano passages and the more bombastic sections that follow. The frequency of this increases towards the end of the song. If is the most GENESIS-like track on here in my opinion, and it's on this song that we hear vocals for the first time. Some blistering guitar before 3 minutes with an impressive section to follow of different sounds coming and going quickly.

"The Feeble Minded Man" is that 21 minute epic i was talking about earlier. And as much as they offer up twists and turns and shifts in tempo like you would expect on such a long track, this one doesn't hold my attention at all. Sure it has it's moments but i would have prefered more interesting shorter songs. "The Chapter" opens with a fairly heavy 1 1/2 minute intro before it settles down with drums, bass and guitar. The tempo picks up and the piano leads the way. Vocals 4 1/2 minutes in. Guitar and some good drumming before piano ends it. "Riding The Deep" is another instrumental. It is fairly mellow for the first 2 minutes before a full sound with drums and synths lead the way. Nice sound.The contrast continues. "Thinkin' All" ranks right up there with the opening track for me. Vocals and piano get things started but it's the guitar that soars a minute in that I really like as the drums pound away. Synths follow.

Good but not essential by any means. An enjoyable listen though.

Review by erik neuteboom
Prog Reviewer

3 stars The six compositions on this compilation CD from the Italian band Cage sound very melodic, pleasant and alternating. The English vocals are decent but no more than that. The strong point is the tension between the mellow parts with classical piano and the more fiery and bombastic parts with harder-edged guitarwork, tastefully layered with duo-keyboard play (organ, piano, Mellotron, synthesizers). The highlight is the long track "The feebleminded man" (20.57) featuring many shifting moods, a strong and dynamic rhythm-section, fiery electric guitar and many fluent synthesizer flights. The most captivating moment is the final part: first tender piano and soft vocals, then ominous guitar that gradually culminates in biting, the atmosphere turns into very bombastic and finally there is an exciting duel between spectacular guitar and flashy synthesizer. This is a good and entertaining progrock CD but I would like to make a deal with every Italian band: please sing in Italian, I will award this with an extra star, OK?
