This is what people have had to say about the debut album from 40 Watt Sun so far:
"Within these 5 tracks of lethargic weight is some unearthly power of emotion that slowly (naturally) works its way into your sub-conscious. The riff work is incredibly well-written, every chord is a pulse of depressive dread and the melodies will make your lungs collapse." Ultimate-Guitar.com
"…after years of silence, Walker has returned with a new project, after keeping legions of doom fans pissing themselves with anticipation for ages. Finally, 40 Watt Sun have arrived. The band (which is rounded out by Christian Leitch and William Spong) will be releasing their debut album, The Inside Room on July 19, and brother, it was worth the wait. Fans of Warning will be wholeheartedly satisfied and doom 'heads of every stripe owe it to themselves to check this out." Metal Sucks.net
"Incredibly vital and alive, bright and uplifting…This is a simply beautiful album that deserves to be heard" 10/10 - Powerplay Magazine
"Heartfelt, genuine and beautiful" Sputnik Music
"An excellent album…one of the first greats of the New Year" Encyclopaedia Metallum
"I can hardly imagine that I am going to hear anything else this good in the course of the year" doom-metal.com
"The Inside Room is something special…The atmosphere is utterly harrowing but still engaging. The bleak aural environs conjured up the ever droning crush of guitars and the unearthly, aggrieved vocals from Walker are simply stunning…" 9/10 – Drop-D Music Magazine
