In a Quiet Room is the eleventh album released by country music artist Dan Seals and his only album on the Intersound label. This album consists mostly of acoustic versions of songs featured on earlier albums, as well as two songs — "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight" and "Love Is the Answer" — that he originally recorded as one-half of the pop duo England Dan & John Ford Coley.[1] The "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight" remake and "The Healin' Kind" were both released as singles.

Thom Owens of Allmusic gave the album two stars out of five, saying, "It's a pleasant album, yet it doesn't offer any new revelations or great performances."[2] New Country magazine reviewer Rob Patterson gave the album two-and-a-half stars out of five, saying that the re-recordings were largely identical to the original versions, and that Seals occasionally sounded like a soft rock artist.[1]
