You either love or hate Patrick Walker's vocals. It is nasal, whiny, depressive and mellow. Why do I love it? Because on emotional level 40 Watt Sun reached my soul and gave me strength to carry on. This album is all about fighting your inner demons (and boy did I have them) and finding peace with who you are. It is hard to describe it any further, you really need to hear it.
I have played This alone 53 times so far and I am expecting the rotation continues. The Inside Room is the best doom metal record of 2011.
