Chroma Key is the name under which ex-Dream Theater keyboardist Kevin Moore records. Although primarily a solo project, several other musicians have recorded as part of Chroma Key such as bassist Joey Vera, drummer Mark Zonder, and guitarist Jason Anderson.

Chroma Key's music is a mix of psychedelia, electronica and ambient, with detailed keyboard sounds and a slightly dark mood. Despite frequent characterisations of "progressive rock", the music has little in common with it stylistically, and is especially different from Moore's work with Dream Theater, with the exception of "Space-Dye Vest" from their Awake album.

This album is all about atmosphere. There's some excellent musicianship present, some quality composition, and some intriguing lyrics, but in the end this album is about eliciting an emotion. It's music for driving alone, late at night, halfway through a long journey.

There are no bad songs on this disc, and removing any of them would lessen the album's impact. The first track serves as a moody, sweeping introduction, immediately setting the tone for the rest of the album. The second track introduces the other half of the album's sound, the more ambient half, and it's full speed ahead from there. "Lunar" is spectacular, a bossa nova take on the Crystal Method's "High Roller," if you can imagine that. "Please Hang Up" is absurdly bizzare, but is also achingly beautiful. "Astronaut Down" is the last anthemic blast, and the album winds down with "You Go Now," a perfect echo of everything that's come before. It's hard to imagine an album better suited to a lonely night on the interstate.

This is not a perfect album, but it's closer than I could come. If you plan on driving through Iowa at about 10 PM in the near future, this is a must-own.

I love this album. There is so much going on, and yet it's all very subtle. It is electronica, but warm and organic sounding. Some of it is pop music. It is music to drive to at night. It is densely layered, but full of space (sonically speaking).

Kevin Moore collaborated with Steve Tushar on this one. Steve programmed the beats and co-produced - I honestly thought at least some of the the programmed drums were live until I read otherwise. Kevin plays bass and lays on the keyboards and samples. Some of the nice touches include the use of a vocoder, and vinyl hum sampled off a Neil Young record. Dave Iscove rounds off the album with some sparse but warm guitar work - check out his wah pedal work on track 3.

I enjoy the singing and lyrics, and sampling, because they are often about such banal and mundane things; Kevin has written a couple of songs about, really, nothing.

I would say this album epitomizes what I look for in richness of sound, subtle syncopations, songwriting, and musical "space". Buy this album, play it in your car and drive somewhere.

First off, let me say that Kevin Moore himself doesn't consider his music progressive anymore, especially after his departure from Dream Theater. That being said, I find his music progressive in my own sense in that he keeps pushing things along, perhaps not with the time signature and tempo changes of DT, but in his own little quiet way.

Simply put, I love this album.

Kevin's lyrics are at times hard to understand (Get Back In The Car), but sometimes they tap into emotions in a backdoor, odd sort of way (Another Permanent Address). Since Kevin's compositional masterpiece (Space-Dye Vest, IMO) largely dealt with heartbreak from what I gleaned, much of his music seems to gravitate around that subject. The two catchiest songs on the album, Another Permanent Address and Astronaut Down, deal with this subject.

Kevin's vocal style is very appealing and soothing at times. He sounds "world-weary" (to steal from the OSI synopsis) and tired. His style is IMO inimitable in its range and beauty. His voice especially shines on Nice To Know, where his voices goes through a series of ups and downs tone-wise. While some might find Kevin to have a monotone singing style, I thoroughly enjoy it.

His music runs the gamut from upbeat, happy electro-pop to mellow lounge type jazz progressions. The most impressive thing I've found about Kevin's music is, the happier it sounds, the more depressing the subject matter is. Another Permanent Address and Astronaut Down, again, examples of this.

This is recommended for anyone who likes keyboards, catchy singalong tunes, and deep insightful lyrics. It'll take a few listens and/or reads before it sinks in completely however.

HIGHLIGHTS: Get Back In The Car (vocoder segment near the end esp.), Another Permanent Address, Lunar, Subway, Astronaut Down.
