Released Jan 20, 1998

Cairo's second CD Conflict And Dreams furthers the San Francisco band's foray into the world of orchestral and progressive rock. Driven by virtuoso musicianship and conceptual songs, Cairo's lush arrangements, soaring melodies and sweet harmonies are as cinematic as they are evocative.

Having spent the better part of two years composing and recording Conflict And Dreams, the band members essentially were striving to surpass the level of musical craftsmanship which highlighted their self-titled debut album.

Mark Robertson's stellar keyboard work is truly a highlight of Conflict And Dreams and he proves over and over again that he is one of the more remarkable keyboard players in the music world today. Melodic and expressive guitar work from Alec Fuhrman transform textures throughout the compositions as well as shifting the emotional range of the soundscape throughout the album. Jeff Brockman's powerful, yet tasteful, drumming propels the tracks while acting to hold the band together. Singer Bret Douglas has a vocal purity matched only by its power.

Conflict And Dreams is a musical feast for lovers of bands such as Yes, Genesis and ELP. Cairo's artistic growth since the release of its first album is readily apparent as is the band's command of the recording medium. Conflict And Dreams was produced by band members Robertson, Brockman and Fuhrman.
