In 2012, King was listed at number seven on PopMatters' "Top 15 Overlooked Albums of the 1990s" list. In 2016, the album was hailed by Will Sheff of Okkervil River as "a winning, confident, masterful collection of songs – poppy and sweet and with a low-key psychedelic undercurrent. Everything good about Star was still there and had been expanded upon, but in many ways this felt like a new, reinvented band.

Star is the debut studio album by American alternative rock band Belly, released on January 25, 1993. Star was released on January 25, 1993 and was an unexpected success. On February 21, 1994, the album was certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of at least 500,000 units.

By developing a flair for tight, melodic hooks on Star, Tanya Donelly unexpectedly achieved the crossover success with Belly that eluded her with the Throwing Muses and the Breeders. Evidently inspired by such success and eager to prove that Belly was a full-fledged band, not just a solo project, Donelly and company made a bid for stardom with their second album, King.

Compromise may have shrunk the band’s fanbase at the time, but it left behind a thought-provoking, near-perfect pop album. I was, fittingly, drunk the first time I heard Belly’s King. You want to know why I can’t sleep/Unless I got a bellyful of wine, Tanya Donelly sang on Untitled & Unsung. I’m drunk and the world is wild, she explained as the track slowly faded away. At the peak of the alt-rock boom, the little band (headed by former Throwing Muses and Breeders member Donelly) wormed its way into public consciousness with the hit Feed the Tree, a track from their gold-selling debut Star.
