Comments of the Inner Chorus is English band Tunng's second album, released in late May 2006 on Full Time Hobby Recordings in the UK. The songs "Woodcat" and "Jenny Again" were both released as limited edition singles.

A common theme picked up on by reviewers after the album's release is that of the pastoral and organic. The use of surreal lyrics ("I'll look for a man to turn me into a hare" on the song "Woodcat", for example) led to comparisons to The Wicker Man and Brothers Grimm [3] [4] . The album, much like its 2005 predecessor Mother's Daughter and Other Songs, has noticeable electronica influences leading many to bracket the album, and by extension Tunng, into the folktronica movement.

A limited edition version of the album was also released which contained two extra tracks: "Band Stand" and "Bodies".
