This year I celebrate 50 years of music listening pleasure. This album is one of my all time favourites. The early Carpenters was the best and most consistantly good. Karen's voice...oh Karen's voice. Words cannot express the beauty, the perfection of Karen's voice. Every track on here is brilliant and wonderfully sequenced together. I bought this on vinyl in the 70's, on cd in the 90's and now I am listening to it on ipod through my hifi controlled by ipad. Life and technology move on but there has never been anyone before or since to better that voice and this collection of songs.
