This review is from: 1969-1973 Singles (Audio CD)
If anything, this IS the definitive collection! These are some of the greatest songs ever recorded! Everyone should own this CD.
The Singles shows why The Carpenters were a force to be reckoned with during their time. Everybody loved them! And so do I.

This review is from: Now & Then [Remastered] (Audio CD)
The Carpenters seemed to have had fun recording these songs. They took them and made them their own.
The songs that became hits from this collection were SING and YESTERDAY ONCE MORE. However, the other songs on this CD are so wonderful!
Another MUST-HAVE for your collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of an era, June 14 2004
The Carpenters became HUGE with the release of this album! Their trademark sound starts with this album and their songs continue to be sung at weddings and anniversaries even today!
There is a wonderful collection of covers and original songs. Richard once again shine sthrough on his wonderful musical arrangements and Karen brings her smooth soft voice to these beautiful songs!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Debut, June 14 2004
This review is from: Ticket To Ride (Audio CD)
Welcome to the world of The Carpenters! Their first album was a wonderful mish mash of covers and original tunes.
They are still searching for their unique soudn and belnd of vocals on this album. However, it does show that they were talented from the very start!

4.0 out of 5 stars Contemporary arrangements, June 14 2004
Well, at least these arrangements are by the original artist. However, the original was always great. Why try to improve on them. There are no vocals on these pieces which adds a great dimension to them.
Richard Carpenter is a very talented pianists, composer and arranger. I believe this CD is worth buying, especially by teh biggest Carpenters fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her voice is still smooth as silk, June 14 2004
This review is from: Karen Carpenter (Audio CD)
While Richard Carpenter took time off from working on music, Karen Carpenter decided to record an album without her brother. The songs here vary from disco-ish to ballads. Some reminiscent of theh songs she recorded with Richard and others were a completely opposite of what she was sued to recording. Karen shines through it all!
This could be her "adult" album. None of the schmaltzy songs that she had recorded before. She stretches her horizons on this CD. I love it! One of my favorites.
My most favorite song is MY BODY KEEPS CHANGING MY MIND. The vocal arrangements are incredible!

4.0 out of 5 stars Probably the last of her best work thus far, June 14 2004
This review is from: Daydream (Audio CD)
By this point, Mariah Carey has become one of the biggest acts in the music industry. This collection, however, shows the beginnings of teh dowfall of Mariah. The Diva attitude started to come through. The mix of several producers starts to show the disjoint theme and arrangements through the CD. Her first 2 albums had a cohesiveness that this CD doesn't have.
However, there were some stand-out performances on this CD. "Fantasy" was a great revival of an obscure 80s song. Mariah's version is better than the 80s song. ONE SWEET DAY was a great collaboration wwith Boys II Men. Open Arms was a cover of an 80s ballad but this version doesn't have the type of umph found in the original.
