Quite nice review.

This album works really great for me, hitting the perfect "golden mean".

The previous one, thought great, never got enough spins from me, as I'd always rather listen to the Warning if I was in such a mood. "Wider Than The Sky" finally succeeds in going outside Warning's shadow, giving all the emotions in a more unique package=)

@Merchant of Doom, I guess I was correct in my assessment that some wouldn't have the patience for the music :p

As for me, this album has reaffirmed 40 Watt Sun as my favorite band. It's a shame the songs are losing their heaviness, but the songwriting and lyrics are everything I've been looking for in music.

I'm not saying it's bad per se... it just doesn't grab me...

Tedium. Listening to someone banging on about the same thing over and over again.
Warning were pretty good but nothing special...and while I'm here, this isn't Doom. :rofl:

I never got into 40 Watt Sun. Both albums are alike to me, and pretty boring indeed. I find Warning to be really excellent though, at least their second release is; the first one is totally unremarkable.

I'm afraid I'm not into Warning either... can't stand his whiny voice... :D

Yes, in fairness, Watching from a Distance was actually very good. It's just not something I go back to very often.

Me neither, but I think it's because it's just emotionally exhausting, it drains all my energy. This is what makes it excellent, but to handle with care. :D
