  • Summary: Bryce Goggin (Phish, Pavement) produced this final album for Dean Wareham & co., who have since announced their intent to disband. It includes a new version of the song "Astronaut" from the 2003 EP 'Close Cover Before Striking.'

  1. Finds the foursome sounding as warmly hypnotic as ever. [5 Nov 2004, p.80]
  2. Rendezvous is among the group's finest works.
  3. Intentionally or not, it creates a sort of natural, autumnal closure -- like a gorgeous, lazy, completely uncommitted fall afternoon delivered in three- to five-minute slices.
  4. 80
    Another uniquely alluring Luna landing. [Nov 2004, p.110]
  5. It flows far better than 2002's Romantica, but that increased fluidity, along with a couple of lead-vocal contributions from guitarist Sean Eden, still add up to what could be titled Another Solid Luna Album--thankfully no less and unsurprisingly not much more.
  6. Wareham is in fine, sardonic form throughout. [Nov 2004, p.130]
  7. The meandering songs coalesce into an uninspired mass, burying the few good moments within it.
