Depending on where you stand, this double-disc set is either where too much becomes too much, or just right. While most of Karen Carpenter's best is available on the more economical Singles 1969-1973, fans aren't likely to turn up their noses at the post-'73 hits that round out Yesterday. "All You Get from Love Is a Love Song" is nearly as bitter as the eternal "Goodbye to Love," while "Only Yesterday" is the best of their happy songs. And something we've always wondered: whose idea was it for them to cover Klaatu's "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft"? --Rickey Wright

Carpenters in one true collection

"The album consists of two CDs and 28 songs. The first CD is more diverse and to me there are all sorts of songs in it. The second CD consists of more tranquilizing or rather sad songs. I think the producer wanted to make a distinction between the first and second CD. I think the CDs cover almost every great song Carpenters performed. I would say this is the most compact yet complete collection of songs you find about Carpenters.
Also the jewel box is a folding one. From outside it looks like any other CD box and seems to be holding only one CD. But inside there is a folding plate with two CDs on its both sides. This saves space and helps you put it in you CD rack with all other CDs.
In one word if you want to listen to Carpenters in one album, maybe this is one of the best CDs."

"When you play this 2CD collection, make sure you "Sing" with Karen. Certainly, this is very enjoyable song collection that even the casual fan would want. "Solitaire" is mysteriously not here, but other than that, no complaints. Since the Carpenters have had "who knows how many hit collections of various titles" in their catalog, this is your best choice to buy especially if you decide not to buy their box set. This collection will save you from buying "The Singles:1969-1973". Listen and "Sing"!"
