The breakthrough 1988 album by The Church, Starfish, which went gold in America, has remained the band's most commercially successful release. The album sold 600,000 copies in the United States alone. The first single, "Under the Milky Way", charted well into the American Top 40, peaking at #24 and #2 on Mainstream Rock Tracks leading to significant exposure of the then relatively underground Australian act. In Australia "Under the Milky Way" climbed to Number 5, and Starfish reached Number 7 on the album charts, the band's positions ever in their home market.
