Star album cover



Tanya Donelly’s initial full-length effort leading a band away from the collaborative worlds of the Throwing Muses and the Breeders turned out to be a real treat when Belly’s Star scored a major alt-rock radio hit in the form of the cool twangy kick of “Feed the Tree,” a perfect showcase for her warm vibes and ear for hooks. Star drew on various singles that had already been released over the previous few months like “Gepetto” and “Slow Dog” and the whole was a sparkling, charging showcase with striking moments of subtle mood and melancholia surfacing throughout.
