Yet, the song is deep and really dense with great vocals and groovy bass lines.

Kevin Moore's debut album is a nomadic masterpiece, the kind of album that you slide into a car stereo at 3 in the morning on a long road trip. It's a lush and subtle thing, and the imagery of the music revolves around shards of dreams and old television shows, half-forgotten conversations and the head-space we all visit when the silence around us is oppressive. Unique and creative use of analog synths abound, as songs like Colorblind and America the Video present a throbbing, layered heartbeat of synthesizers as their framework. Moore's sampling on this record is also a small work of genius, as he has 'bugged' his acquaintances' conversations, weaving them in his songs for emotional and textural effect. Mark Zonder of Fates Warning brings his peerless drumming skills to bear on this disc, and gives the music an organic, roomy dimension not possible with a drum machine. Moore's vocals are somewhere between David Gilmour and Peter Gabriel, reserved and poetic, but never brooding. Lyrics are of special note, recalling early Tori Amos wry storytelling. All and all, true sonic theater.

hopefully, for Kevin Moore, this will not be the case. I have been a long time Dream Theater fan, however; upon Moore's departure, I slowly drifted away from DT. When I heard he was making his own music, I'd had heard that it was a Jazz Fusion/Techno experience. I was absolutely thrilled to hear what it actually was...GENIUS!
His vivid use of tone and surreal, thought provoking lyrics left this writer's jaw on the perverbial floor. The first song, "Colorblind" gives the listener a glimpse at what is to come, yet is somewhat ironic. The album is anything but "colorblind".
Moore uses his technical expertise to bring forth a myriad of musical scores that are pleasing to the ear and provocative to the mind.
BUY THIS ALBUM! Put it in your car and go on a long trip. You can bet that you will never have to change the music.

There's never been a time in my life where the sound of a keyboard/piano has altered my thought process.I think Chroma Key are one step ahead of what we perceive as real and fictional.The melody they hold is quite solid in its subtlety.

My absolute favourite heart rendering track on this album is "On The Page" but the first song I heard from this album was "Undertow" I also dig "Colorblind". I'm not gonna go track by track but I'll talk about my favourite tracks.

There's a certain lyric in "On The Page" which goes like "It's like the water when I'm dreaming...." It's what I would call a breakaway from living a life where you live every detail and a transcending contrast where you write what you feel on a piece of page daily.I don't know the name of the vocalist of Chroma Key but I can safely say they can't possibly have more magical vocals for a band of its authority in supremacy.

I'd auction off my diary to support the cause of this absolute hellbender smooth album. The drums,keyboards are just outstanding and make me go numb. I know numb is a weak over used word but not for this under rated band. Actually,I'm quite glad they're underrated because I honestly feel not everyone deserves music as grand as this.

Undertow is the kind of a track I'd listen to when im in the middle of a day where its bright outside but I'm in my dark room trying to ignore the world. There's no love song on the album. It's an album for loners. Atleast , thats what I consider myself as. We're all alone and this album re-affirms by beleif in sanity of one.

It came as a surprise to many when Kevin Moore picked up his keyboard and left Dream Theater, the world's preeminent progressive metal band. During the recording of Dream Theater's Awake, Moore felt himself growing distant from the other band members and the musical direction they were pursuing. He felt more comfortable exploring his own ideas, which manifested in the lugubrious "Space-Dye Vest".
Kevin Moore's solo project Chroma Key continues music in the vein of "Space-Dye Vest". With the help of Mark Zonder (drums, Fates Warning), Joey Vera (bass, also from Fates Warning), and a guitarist named Jason Anderson, Moore has created Dead Air for Radios, a dark, melancholic synth-pop record. You might think of this album as "Space-Dye Vest"-esque music without the guitar riffs. It's largely keyboard driven, with some electronic beats. Zonder's unique drumming style, heavy in its cymbal use, coheres perfectly with the music. Moore himself handles vocal duties himself. His voice is rather nondescript, but like the brilliant Kevin Gilbert (RIP), he compensates with a special feeling in his delivery -- melancholic and a bit delicate.
Quite a great little record. A good soundtrack for a lonely nighttime drive.

Not since a young girl by the name of Tori Amos first sat down in front of her piano and put her emotions on tape has an album had such an impact on a listener. Kevin Moore, formerly of Dream Theater, has abandoned all of his previous band's progressive nuances in exchange for pure, honest emotion. From the first few notes of album opener "Colorblind", you can be sure that you are in for an inspiring (if not somewhat disturbing) ride into Kevin's psyche. Lush keyboard arrangements, airy guitars, and Kevin's Peter Gabriel-esque vocal stylings lead you through the headphone experience of a lifetime. In short, if you are looking for something completely different from with what you are familiar, or are a fan of the aforementioned Amos and/or Gabriel, do yourself a favor a buy this. It's a trip you won't soon forget...
