Bright Nights Dark Days
Released: Aug 2009
Talk about frontloaded. Bright Nights Dark Days opens with what will surely go down as Cavo's calling card: "Champagne." This tune is nuts. The protagonist, a total party dude, is all wigged out about his girl who is, apparently, losing it and totally wanting out of their relationship. He's searching for what went wrong. Then it hits him: "Could've been the champagne -- champagne. Could've been the cocaine -- cocaine." The rest of the album isn't as audacious, too concerned with Billboard-friendly grunge ballads. Cavo need to stick to what they do best: hard rock anthem ragers.
