Synthetic Movement Electropop, Electro Chrom I rarely agree with anything Out of Line has in their artist stable, but with Chrome, I must reluctantly admit that they have kind of nailed it. 'Synthetic Movement' is this band's second album after a debut album called 'Electroscope' on Fear Section (Chris Pohl of Blutengel's label) back in 2010.They range from everything from electropop to trying to incorporate some harsher vocals and bigger beats every now and then. To be honest, Chrom is at its best when they staying out of the harsher business. "Slave" is simply the lowest point of the album, still, a good track though. The second track "Surrender" could have ended up in the same way, however, they simply turn it around to pure greatness in the perfect chorus; nicely saved! The fourth track "Losing Myself" is the best track of the album and kept me company during the entire train ride back to Gothenburg from Stockholm a few weeks back. Simply an outstanding track. This is luckily not a two hit kind of album, this will give you joy from the beginning to the end and never goes below 'good' during its entire length. This eleven track long record is well composed, well executed and greatly put together. 'Synthetic Movement' will keep you company during this summer's warm and beautiful days. Enjoy it, and well played Out of Line. 450
