Performer Notes
  • In the wake of its 1986 album HEYDAY (arguably the finest album of the band's first phase of existence), '80s college rock fave the Church found itself in a position to capitalize on its success. Its follow-up album, STARFISH (1988), contains some of the band's biggest hits, including "Under the Milky Way," while in no way compromising the band's artistic stance--making it one of a notable group of albums that bridge the gap between critical acclaim and commercial success while making absolutely no discernable changes to the artist's sound.
  • Nearly every track is remarkable. The album opener, "Destination" features an epic psychedelic flavor, the spacious dual guitars of Peter Koppes and Marty Willson-Piper, and Steve Kilbey's arresting lyrical imagery ("In the space between our bodies / The air has grown small fingers"). The above-mentioned "Under the Milky Way" features a bagpipe during its rather spectacular instrumental break. Willson-Piper's "Spark" is an upbeat and strikingly lush pop song. "Reptile" features stunning reverb-drenching guitar work. The list goes on--this is a wonderful record by a band at the height of its powers.
