Best of opens with "Moon Palace", the first of five tracks from Penthouse and Wareham's personal favorite Luna song. "You were stuck in a dream/ And you wanted to scream/ But it's nothing at all/ No, it's nothing at all," he sings as guitars move between stoned country and a 14-hour Technicolor dream. Penthouse's top billing in the tracklist is fortuitous-- it's their best album, and anyone who likes this comp should seek it out-- but what's remarkable is how well the rest of Luna's material stands up to it. Solid to their final days, "Astronaut"-- from the band's 2004 swan song Rendezvous-- is one of Luna's best songs, with a drumbeat about four times brisker than anything else here and one of Wareham's strongest vocal performances. - Pitchfork
