My record collection
#004: Luna - Romantica (LP)

Luna’s Romantica, along with Rendezvous, was re-pressed on vinyl in 2016 as part of a Pledgemusic campaign. This is my Pledgemusic copy, signed by all four members of the band.

Back in 2016 Dean Wareham ranked Luna’s studio albums and put Romantica a lowly fifth out of seven saying “There was so much going on in my life at that point, it’s kind of hard for me to think about this record objectively.” - at the time I decided to rank Luna’s albums too and put it at sixth, so neither of us rated it amongst Luna’s finest. Listening to it now I find it hard to believe because it sounded so much better than that - although still not entirely sure what it would overtake.

My last.fm plays mostly agree with my rankings from 2016, except for some reason Pup Tent is way down the list - I can only think I listen to it more on vinyl and therefore it doesn’t (always) get scrobbled.

Here are my most played Luna albums according to Last.fm (with my 2016 rankings in parentheses)

  7. Days of Our Nights (7)
