All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Bright Nights Dark Days is the major-label debut of Cavo and it sure feels like a big major-label album, the kind of multi-platform wannabe blockbuster that's rarely made in 2009. Cavo has a little bit of everything for a modern rock audience raised on Guitar Hero: a dose of danger in the streamlined Hinder-esque bad-boy anthem "Champagne," a little neo-grunge in "Crash," a sky-scraping power ballad in "Let it Go," all elements of a modern rock that flirt with American Idol-esque pageantry, due in part to the presence of the Nixons' Zac Maloy, previous collaborator of David Cook and Chris Daughtry.

Cavo may not have a frontman as finely groomed as either of those Idol finalists - they haven't been pulled through the star-making machine, at least not in public - but their music holds up well against Cook and Daughtry. It's melodic and insistent without being forceful, blending into the background yet slowly worming into your head, leaving you wondering how it got there.

    Awesome band!

    I don't know where to begin...AWESOME is just the first word that comes to mind when I think of this band! Not one "bad" song on this entire CD! I don't even skip through any songs when I listen to it! If you like Nickelback, Hinder, Matchbox 20, along those lines, you'll LOVE Cavo! "Let it Go" "Ghost" and "My Little Secret" are just a few of my favorites, other than "Champagne" of course! They are currently still touring some smaller venues in between doing dates with Daughtry...check them out! Trust me when I say, you'll wish you did! These guys are on the fast move to the top of the charts! If you haven't heard of them yet, you definately will soon! They ARE "THAT GOOD!
