Although the Carpenters were hardly considered fashionable during their '70s commercial heyday (rock critics particularly detested them), by the time this greatest-hits album (fleshed out with a few previously unreleased tracks) was released, the critical consensus was swinging in their favor. Maybe it was a '90s irony thing (lounge revival, anyone?); more likely it was just that with the passage of time, people could finally hear the melancholy that lurked under the surface-happy face of the Carpenters' lush production style. In any case, this is a terrific best-of, with all the hits plus their all-time weirdest cover, Klaatu's "Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft." You make the call: Karen and Richard Carpenter--secret space cadets?
