Excellent album and U.S. BreakthroughDecember 14, 2015
I am a huge fan of The Church. This was the album that turned me on to these amazing Aussie alternative/Indie/psychedelic rockers, who emerged on the U.S. College Radio charts with the single "Under the Milky Way" back in 1988. Videos on 120 Minutes on MTV brought more exposure to the single and the group. They have over 24 creative albums, with music that can be sometimes brooding, driving, reflective and sometimes shimmering. Lyrical imagery and storytelling from Singer/Bass player Steve Kilbey...is a hallmark. Starfish, was the catalyst that exposed a very talented band who had been around since the start of the 80's successfully in Australia, but had not received U.S. attention...and delivers one of their best/hallmark albums and is a great place to start. You won't be disappointed. Their U.S. breakthrough propelled them to further develop an incredible catalog of music. Starfish is great throughout, but highlight tracks include the singles: "Under The Milky Way" & "Reptile", "North/South/East/West", "Antenna", "Spark", and the lush "Hotel Womb" Well worth the full price, let alone value pricing!
I would recommend this to a friend
