A bit dull,repetitive and lacks in catchy melodies.
The fact that you are using cool synths will not make noises more interesting.
No matter the style, trance,tech house,techno,deep house etc.
Lacks in something super relevant in instrumental electronic music.
A soul.not everyone can deliver.
Not a bad album but not memorable.

_Chromophobia_ shows that Gui Boratto is not simply a one-trick pony. From awesomely funky tech-house to more measured and thoughtful tracks, this album showcases Boratto's skills as a producer. Sure, he knows how to craft a fine stomp: "Mr. Decay" gets a nice deep groove going, which is only complemented by the plucky melodic line. "Terminal" has some more industrial tones running amok in it, showing Boratto can do harsh as well as pretty. The acid psychedelia of "Shebang" benefits from the funky breakdown in the middle of the track. If cool and dubby is your thing, then "The Blessing" will be right up your alley. But further out on the album, Boratto really gets to show off his stuff: the beatless "Mala Strana" and the more delicate "Acrostico" offer another side to the more pronounced, beat-driven tracks while the darkly melodic "Xilo" counterbalances hiss with some guitar work. "Beautiful Life" is as joyous and as poppy as can be, and it works. Similarly, "Hera" gets us back into upbeat territory. Boratto gives us no reason to fear colors whatsoever with this album.
