The Review:

Chroma Key’s latest release, Graveyard Mountain Home bares more resemblances to Kevin Moore’s Ghostbook that anything else Kevin has done. In fact I found out by reading the Chroma Key website, that Graveyard and Ghostbook were recorded about the same time. This leads me to believe that they’re related in many ways, more so musically. Kevin chose to go down a path untraveled by prog metal musicians. That path being ambient electronica. The music is more background and something that will take several listens to fully appreciate it’s beauty. This is undoubtably a headphones type release.

On the down side it’s very non directional, in the same vein as Ghostbook. I think they’re musical sequels that need to be listened back to back. Some fans of Chroma Key may be turned off by this direction and I can understand that. It should have been a Kevin Moore release with leanings to his Ghostbook style of music. I can recommend this to those that enjoy ambient electronica soundtrackish music. All others proceed with caution.
