  • 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.

    great old luna with some new twists like Sean Eden singing on two songs (which surprisingly are my favorites)... If this is the last Luna CD, great old luna with some new twists like Sean Eden singing on two songs (which surprisingly are my favorites)... If this is the last Luna CD, it's a great way to wrap it up... Expand
