This 1975 album is one of Karen and Richard Carpenter's best. A languorous cover of The Eagles' "Desperado" and a version of the Marvelettes' classic "Please Mr. Postman" display the duo's impressive interpretive skills. But the songwriting team of Richard Carpenter and John Bettis wrote most of the album. This pairing had already proven themselves with hits like "Top of the World," "Yesterday Once More," and "Goodbye To Love." The Carpenters' most successful track on HORIZON was the enormous hit "Only Yesterday." Richard's orchestrations and arrangements here are among his best, and of course sister Karen is in excellent voice throughout, her melancholy, dusky alto sounding as pure and warm as ever.
