Album Review

Luna's second album drops the superfluous superscript (added to the band name on their first album for contractual reasons) and adds a second guitarist, Sean Eden. New producer Victor Van Vugt, who had previously done good work with Redd Kross and Kirsty MacColl, among others, strips away the reverb-happy haze that Fred Maher had coated 1992's Lunapark with, bringing Dean Wareham's vocals to the fore while (rather unfortunately) de-emphasizing Justin Harwood's bass and Stanley Demeski's drums. This makes Bewitched sound less unique than Lunapark, but happily, Wareham's songwriting is significantly sharper on this outing, with more direct lyrics and more memorable melodies. The witty breakup song "California (All the Way)" opens the album on a high point, and that quality level is maintained throughout the album. The addition of Eden does a lot to open up Luna's arrangements, since Wareham is an extremely distinctive guitarist who tends to get locked in the same sounds and patterns. Having a foil to play off of enlivens Wareham's playing, and instrumental passages like the extended codas of "Friendly Advice" and "Sleeping Pill" are much more interesting than similar bits on Lunapark.

Customer Reviews

Wow all I can say is....Wow

This cd continues to shine even after 16 years. Every song is well written and performed but, my absolute favorite is Tiger Lily. Even though I haven't listened to this album in over 10 years Tiger Lily still floats to the front of my consciousness on a regular basis. Well done iTunes this is definitely a homerun.

Luna Bewitched is AMESOME! each song has got a great swing to it...you can listen to the album over and over again. It makes me happy:)

One of the best albums in the last twenty years !

I recommend this album without reservation. ALL the songs are good (how rare) played with energy AND restraint ! Catchy hooks, great production, energizing and relaxing at points. All fans of The Velvet Underground should check this out: it features VU's lead guitarist's last recording before he passed on. All fans of Television should check this out, as their influence is here (and Tom Verlaine played on the Luna album that followed this one.) This album is a rare gem.

Biography

In the wake of the rather acrimonious breakup of his previous band, Galaxie 500, singer/guitarist Dean Wareham issued a 1991 solo EP, Anesthesia, and appeared on the brilliant Mercury Rev single "Car Wash Hair" before announcing the formation of a new band, dubbed Luna, in 1992. Originally named Luna², the trio was a kind of alternative...
