Rex, to their wall-of-distorted-guitars audio, a mixture that helped the music group make a moderate dent within the past due-’90s alternative rock and roll picture.

Less than annually after Citizen Alien’s launch, the album experienced offered over 500,000 copies, generating gold position. The Chinese Recording adopted in 1998, having a cameo appearance by Michael Stipe and an artier sound general.
