Two great songs about extraterrestrial contact, yin and yang.
By then, the Carpenters had made so much money for A&M Records, the only answer they could give to “Can we hire a 160-pc. orchestra for a song about contacting aliens?” was “Sure, we’ll get right on it, Mister and Miss Carpenter!” 😈
Mod fashion or punk? Both! The best album of 1978, in my humble opinion.
