Inside is the debut studio album released by British rock band Presence; it was released through Smash Records, a subsidiary of Island Records. Although Inside was well received by critics, it was a commercial failure, and the band dissolved shortly afterwards. Nevertheless, this band does spark interest among some Cure fans because of the involvement of Lol Tolhurst.[2] According to an interview with Robert Smith, Michael Dempsey was also involved with this band as he co-wrote two of the tracks off of this album as well as the b-side "Amazed".[3]

In December 2011, this album was made available in MP3 format through Amazon and iTunes.


Staff writer Dave Thompson of Allmusic gave the album four out of five stars, writing "for anybody still reeling from the horrors of the Cure's own most recent releases, if Wish was the cure, then Inside was the plague with the built-in immunity."[1]
