I think it's safe to say that this is probably Carpenters' best album. The production is top notch, Richard's arrangements are impeccable, especially on Solitaire, Aurora/Eventide and I Can Dream. And of course, Karen sounds spectacular. Perhaps their best ballad, Solitaire, is on this album, what I consider the apex of the album. Really appreciate that this set isn't bogged down by a song with Richard on lead vocals, which were often filler on previous albums. No offense to Richard, but like most people, we wanna hear Karen's amazing voice. And Horizon delivered. Let us not forget the two hits, Only Yesterday, which showcases Karen's huskiness in her vocals, and Please Mr. Postman, which is a fine remake of the Marvellettes original. On top of that, this sounds great on vinyl and a must for any person who loves the Carpenters. Love, love, love this album!
