3 stars Factory of Dreams is the latest brainchild of Portuguese multi-instrumentalist Hugo Flores.

Fans of Project Creation will find many similar elements on this release; but this time around Flores has teamed up with a female vocalist who gets to handle all voice and vocal duties; and the album is much more of a pure-bred prog metal exploration.

Dramatic and melo-dramatic compositions is the name of the game here; massive synth layers with symphonic leanings; drawn out massive chords and mostly slower riff patterns fleshing out the sound; loops and electronic rhythms used extensively and operatic vocals placed on top.

Well produced and well performed; but too much focus on big contrasts and too few finer details ultimately makes me regard this as an album that should appeal to fans of power metal as well as followers of a project like Ayreon; with a younger audience as the suspected primary target crowd.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
