4.0 out of 5 stars A Distinct Study in Minimalism December 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Let's start with the beautiful packaging of Chroma Key's third album Graveyard Mountain Home. While I generally prefer regular jewel cases with booklets, I had to pick up the limited edition of this album due to the bonus DVD. After all, it's this movie, Age 13 (an old 1950's film), that inspired Kevin. Anyway, the packaging of the album is very velvety and it unfolds into four 'pages'. The regular album is on one side and the DVD is on the other. The other two 'pages' contain lyrics, song credits and the thank-you section. It's really beautiful.

Kevin Moore's previous work, as you may know, was the soundtrack of a Turkish movie called OKUL, and it was released also through InsideOut with the title Ghost Book. If you listened to that soundtrack and enjoyed (parts) of it, then you are bound to like GMH for sure. Kevin Moore is the epitome of moving forward and surprising his listeners, so don't expect any song-oriented albums like Dead Air for Radios or You Go Now. GMH is an expansive exploration of Moore's deep interest in movies and soundtracks. Obviously he wants to explore this part of music at the moment and he reminds me of the Norwegian band Ulver in this respect. Ulver started out as a raw Black Metal act before turning into a folk-inspired band and finally moving into electronical music and doing soundtracks for cult movies. Kevin seems to enjoy a nomadic way of life and he travels a lot. All three CK albums were written in different countries (USA, Costa Rica and Turkey) and Kevin always successfully implemented musical elements of these particular places into the mold of his songcraft. The cultural climax presented on GMH easily gives itself away.

Graveyard Mountain Home/GMH is Kevin Moore's latest Chroma Key/CK wonder. Picture an educational film from 1955 with music from today. A wild idea, maybe. But for musician Moore this is just a way to push the envelope as an artist. Not to be tied-down into a certain musical genre, his band's evolution is very satisfying here. This is an interpretation, of sorts, featuring tunes that seemed befitting as an "alternate soundtrack to go with the film (AGE 13, 1955)" says Moore. For the GMH special edition purchase, a DVD of Age 13 with the CK music is included. The feel throughout is moody & slow, yet its reason lies in the point of the story. A tale of grief through acceptance marked by feelings of isolation which lead ultimately to the fruition of hope. "Before You Started" is an experimental work of art which includes a jazz vibe set to an off-tempo beat and Moore's one-of-a-kind lyrics. Check out "Come In, Over" for this disc's finest hour. For the lighter fare, spin "White Robe" or "True and Lost". All in all, this cd is awesome but so is Kevin Moore. Just don't forget, Moore is set to tour with this release. Be ready and snag all 3 Chroma Key recordings today! Prog is King has an opinion but is absolutely wrong. For more info visit the CK site now at [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure genius! November 27, 2004
Format:Audio CD
On this, the latest Chroma Key release, Kevin Moore has outdone himself. An album full of emotion, incredible sound sampling and surprises bound to entice the listener into the a world of heartache, yearning and pure determination, GMH is the perfect addition to any CD collection.
I recommend purchasing this edition as the DVD of 'Age 13', the 1955 movie that formed the base of GMH, is included with the alternate soundtrack written by Kevin Moore. Following the movie with GMH playing gives the listener a real insight into the story behind the music and what Moore was trying to portray in the creation of this album. And believe me, he has done a very good job of it. Every action, every feeling within the movie has been captured in music and represented with a variety of sound samples, deceptively simple rhythms and even a monologue on track 8 (Human Love).
Although this album is quite different from the previous Chroma Key releases, it is a classic example of the sheer brilliance that is Kevin Moore. A definite MUST BUY!

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite Bizarre August 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Having no experience with Chroma Key before and precious little experience with the music of Dream Theater, I had no real idea what to expect when I bought Graveyard Mountain Home. I don't remember who recommended it and why I even decided to try it, so I came to this with absolutely no points of comparison. Sometimes that's good. I've read some of the other reviews that express disappointment that Graveyard Mountain Home is not more like Dream Theater or more like a previous Chroma Key recording. Well, it is what it is, and when it stands alone, it isn't too bad despite being made as an add-on soundtrack for a 1950s social guidance film that is really quite bizarre.

This of course is not going to be for everyone. The music is very atmospheric and the film somewhat depressing, almost disturbing. I find it is best listened to while watching the DVD.

Some of the music has a new age feel to it, some very eerie, but some of it is strangely beautiful. My favorites are Salvation, Human Love, the soothing piano sequence in Pure Laughter, and Sad, Sad Movie. And the film called "Age 13" has sparked an interest in social guidance films.

Though Graveyard Mountain Home will never top my playlist, it will find an occasional place in my CD rotation. If you are one who sometimes enjoys music and movies that are somewhat outre', then this just may be a CD for you.
