4.5 superbEvan Mester | August 27th 14

If Watching From a Distance is a storm under pitch black sky of heavy clouds, then The Inside Room is a heavy
downpour with occasional breaks of sunlight. Just like Warning, 40 Watt Sun has that same depressing atmosphere and
lyrical stylings, yet the band manages to differ itself from Warning. Within all that sadness, the instrumentation on The
Inside Room has this lingering yet faint presence of positive emotions, like a dim light in the darkness refusing to fade
away. Once again, Patrick Walker does some of the most emotional and beautiful vocal performances in doom metal, or
hell, it metal itself. 40 Watt Sun is still heavy as all hell and the tracks trudge at a somber and slow pace. In short, The
Inside Room is essentially the dim light yet ever-present light of hope in the dark tunnel of depression and sorrow.
4.7/5

4.5 superbKeeneIsGod | July 4th 14

I wasn't the biggest fan of the whole doom genre for a long time but this band and Pallbearer have opened me up to it. Definitely worth the listen if your a fan of the genre and if not this could change your mind. It's not over complex or hard to follow, its accessible and gratifying.

5.0 classicDarkNoctus CONTRIBUTOR | March 8th 11

This is essentially a more grown up version of Watching From A Distance, and I mean that in the most flattering way possible.
