Please find attached an album review from Dutch heavy metal site, Lords Of Metal. As a guide, scores in their reviews vary between 30 – 95/100.
Interesting to note the descriptor – ‘prog/sympho metal’ – and that the review also compares Cairo to three of the prog greats – all of whom who the band greatly admire.
The review summarises:
“The band navigates easily between complex pieces and more atmospheric passages.
The whole comes across as a good mix between Porcupine Tree, Marillion and Dream Theater, but carries its own identity.
It will not surprise me when Cairo’s ‘Say’ will appear in my year list. Score 87/100”
The band feel this is a great score, being in the top 10% of albums ever scored on the site.
