Best Of

Beggars Banquet
Released 20 June 2006

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
