At that time may not have to know that two songs from two bands from malaysia if compare with...
...the indonesian songs from performers like Nicky Astria, God Bless, or Slank. Iklim's name even more popular than one of the best indonesia's band, like Dewa 19.
Slowly, indonesian music lovers have started "loving" songs from the songs of their own nation (Indonesia). besides, the media broadcasting (such as TV & Radio), which reduces the intensity in the play/broadcast songs from the band/singer from malaysia, and its results give a fairly significant impact.
Until the end of the early 2000's, malaysian songs almost never present "in the sky" of indonesia. although there is still one or two performers from malaysia that still exist in the music of indonesia, but they just sing the song of creation indonesian musicians. This is not a sabotage or efforts to reject of malaysian performers/bands for exist in the indonesia's music industry. but around the end of 90's music of indonesia start in domination by the indonesian musicians, and their get high appreciation that had long disappeared from the music lovers.
Appear very much the indonesian bands/singers and have a quality. like Sheila On 7, Peterpan, Ungu, Nidji, d'Masiv, to the names of the other great musicians such as Krisdyanti, Glenn Fredly, Dewa 19, Gigi, until Slank, able to be proud of the indonesian music lovers. even the names of bands/performers are famous and successful to singapore, Brunei, and even Malaysia like any band/singer from indonesia. music is universal. can't in force. because music is a taste.
