Belly King Covers and Promotional Material

Was this the album that broke the band?

Belly's King album was a beautifully packaged slow-fading shout out to the end of something that Tanya Donnelly started in order to get out there on her own for the second time or so. The Breeders had come and gone and she had a major hit (in my mind) with Feed the Tree, which is another gorgeously packaged EP.

They did the Star album and it was perfect. They did King and I really liked it and I wish they had done more. The marketplace didn't agree with me.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with making great music and singing great songs. That's what Belly were guilty of, and the grunge kids took a pass.
