Made In America..A real gem!!!
on 9 September 2006
The final studio album before Karen's sad departure and what an absolute gem it is too! There's just something about this album that excites me. I am a huge Carpenters fan, have been for many years now and they never fail to make me smile hearing Karen's unique voice. Kicking off with track one, Those Good Old Dreams - a classic slice of country and one of my favourite Carpenters singles. My top cuts from this album (in no particular order) have got to be (Want you) Back In My Life Again - a new direction into the pop world i feel...I Believe You - such a catchy feel to this love song...the top TOP track off this album tho has definately got to be track 2 "Strength Of A Woman". How this was never a single is beyond me...Yeah, Beechwood 45 789 is a great catchy pop song but "Strength" is just classic Carpenters! And the vocal harmonys are spine tingling! Check this album out, it's brilliant!
