This is a very interesting story indeed. A guy from Turkey starts writing this book called "Hayalet Kitap" (meaning Ghost Book) way back in 1999 or something. While writing, he listens to a lot of Kevin Moore-era Dream Theater and even uses an excerpt from "Space Dye-Vest" as a prologue to his story. The more he listens to Moore's music, the deeper he goes with his writing and eventually his book gets published and gets quite of an attention. Years later, he is asked to write the script of a horror movie called OKUL (meaning School) and adapt his story of Ghost Book to it. As he and the directors of the movie think of a fitting soundtrack for their flick, Kevin Moore relocates to Istanbul, Turkey, in order to write and record his third album for his Chroma Key project. All of a sudden, Dogu Yucel, the writer, and Moore meet to discuss the possibilities of working together and upon discovering that his music was a great inspiration for the book, Moore agrees to postpone the Chroma Key record, and starts work on Ghost Book, his first ever completely solo effort to date.
Now I haven't read the book, nor have I seen the movie. Being a big Dream Theater and Chroma Key fan, I figured I'd just wait till this soundtrack sees the light of day. So I've picked it up recently and have to strongly point out that this sounds absolutely NOTHING like Kevin Moore's previous musical endeavours. Although the label claims this would "have direct appeal to fans of [Dream Theater, OSI, Chroma Key]", Ghost Book is a completely different entity. Do not pick it up if you expect to hear anything similar to the aforementioned bands musically. Obviously this is just a marketing ploy.

18 songs that barely crack 45 minutes long. Very short compact songs, instrumentally speaking. It is a good album but nothing really catchy, his first two albums were better.

This album is a strange mix of new age music with slightly Arabic (read Turkish) influences but not in the traditional sense. It is a beautiful album but not suited for every occasion so to speak.

You will notice it differs considerably from Chroma Key. And you will have a really hard time into it if you are a Dream Theater fan. Also, remember this is a soundtrack, not an album with 5 min or so tracks. And add to it the fact that the movie is somewhat weird, beginning with the country it comes from. I haven't seen it (don't plan to), but still the music in this soundtrack reflects KM's current ethereal, surreal, ambient, meditative and somewhat esoteric style. I can only recommend this for people with a VERY WIDE musical and artistic sensibility. I'm not saying I have it, but just to warn you.
