Conflict & Dreams (1998) by Cairo. Genres: Progressive Metal, Progressive Rock Members: Bret Douglas, Alec Fuhrman, Mark Robertson, Jeff Brockman.

On their first album, the members of Cairo sounded like a hard rock/heavy metal band gone proggy - the progressive rock elements often felt forced and overdone. On Conflict and Dreams they showed surprising maturity, with both sides of their background now firmly integrated. Problems in song structures were also resolved. Angels and Rage" is a model of dynamic, non-linear progressive rock song. Its chorus is a fine piece of stadium rock-meets-prog rock, with elements of Boston, Journey, and the Dream Theater coming to mind as one listens to Bret Douglas' powerful voice.

Overall, this album is excellent. The band has a bright future with the kind of music they play. Their music is relatively complex and heavily influenced by GENESIS, MARILLION, IQ and ELP. I would say that this is when GENESIS meets ELP. On top of that, they have great musicianship especially keyboard and guitar, and songwriting. The opening track "Angels and Rage" surprised me with the kind of keyboard melody and nuance similar to GENESIS's "Cul-De-Sac" of "Duke" album. It appears at intro part. Overall, this is an excellent album with strong songwriting, great and skillful musicians. The only thing that this group should improve is probably on the production quality.

This album is my first experience with CAIRO. I did hear a better than average rendition of "Squonk" on a tribute to GENESIS CD put out by their label, MAGNA CARTA THE FLOWER KINGS who also do a good ELP. This album is all over the place when it comes to picking out influential references including GENESIS and even RUSH. What I like about this album is the sencerity in the compositions
