Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
From 2000 to 2006 there were no less than fifteen greatest hits compilations issued for the Carpenters in various permutations. This "ultimate" collection, however, does a reasonable job living up to the idea that this is the ultimate greatest hits compilation available for the duo.
