3 stars Iīm still wondering why they labeled this portuguese duo as neo prog. Factory Of Dreams leans much more towards the prog metal/gothic path than anything else. itīs quite nice music for sure, but donīt expect anything even close to neo prog because you wonīt find it on Poles. I liked the voice of Jessica Lehte, she is surely a trained singer with good vocal technique and a nice timbre, even if her style is quite common place nowadays.

Hugo Flores is also a very good musician and knows how to write some interesting tunes. Most songs are slow or middle paced affairs, with lots of multi-tracked, full of effects vocal parts, symphonic synths, metallic edge guitars and some eletronic drums. The results are good, but not very outstanding. In fact they do very little more than dozens of other bands are doing, except maybe for some extra care for the atmospheric parts. Pretty cover, too.

I recommend this CD to the fans of Xandria, Evanescence, Within Temptation and the like. Poles is promising, the duo have the potential and maybe they can bring something more original in future works. For this one, 3 stars. Good, bot nothing more than that.
