""Under the Milky Way," still one of the most haunting and elegant songs ever to make the Top 40." -AllMusic

The Church’s Starfish is a dreamy, atmospheric masterpiece, guitar-driven alt-rock before alt-rock was a term. It includes the timeless smash hit “Under the Milky Way,” and “Reptile,” both First Wave staples.

Intervention's Artist-Approved Expanded Edition CD/SACD is 18-tracks total, including 8 amazing bonus tracks that were not on the original release. These bonus tracks kick off with wonderful acoustic versions of “Under the Milky Way” and “Antenna.” The other tracks are so strong that it’s very apparent that Starfish could have been a potent double LP.

Starfish is mastered Direc-To-DSD from THE Original Master Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound. Intervention's cut presents this amazing recording with FULL bass extension and dynamic power. All of the 8 bonus tracks are Mastered Direct-To-DSD from analog tapes assembled by Ryan K. Smith from the original analog master tapes.
