The fourth album from St. Louis band Cavo is “Bridges” and it’s easily the group’s most developed work to date. With their latest album they still have their core sound intact, but they went away from the Nickelback inspired music that they had incorporated heavily into their last album “Thick as Thieves.” This record is a modern take on Cavo’s sound and it should exceed most expectations going in.
With “Bridges” Cavo doesn’t move completely away from the post-grunge sound that used to drive them. There are still several songs that fit that mold on this album. But on “Bridges” the band also flirts with middle of the road rock and pop rock. The guitars effects are lighter and everything is more melodic on those songs and a little more enjoyable too. There’s a lot of variety here for Cavo – they even venture into blues territory on a song or two.
Cavo’s “Bridges” is their best album to date. It’s got a ton of variety and the production is top notch. It’s not perfect, but it’s surprising how good it actually is.
