5.0 out of 5 stars This eurythmics masterpiece gets the balance just right
Eurythmics have become just another one of those forgotten 80's bands. Shame! This album is the culmination of a long and very fruitful partnership between lennox and stewart. The balance of music on this album is first class between pop and quality independant. Top marks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Truly Great Sounds
Touch will always be one of the great albums of the 80s, and deservedly so. The classic "Here Comes The Rain Again" is argued by some fans as their greatest track. There are other great tunes that can be played again and again.
However, in today's eyes the album seems a little outdated. Although the classics still sound fresh, other tracks seem to weigh the album...

4.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite sounds!, 4 Dec 2002

Pieter Uys "Toypom" (Johannesburg) - See all my reviews
(TOP 500 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)   
This review is from: Touch (Audio CD)
Touch is another synthpop masterpiece by Eurythmics that has stood the test of time very well. Not quite on the level of Sweet Dreams, it nevertheless contains brilliant songs like the atmospheric Here Comes The Rain Again with its evocative lyric, the compelling Right By Your Side with its riveting reggae beat and the soulful Who's That Girl. The arrangements are innovative throughout and lend merit even to the lesser songs like Regrets with its frisky trumpets. Another favorite of mine is Paint A Rumour with its skittering beat and subtle synth flourishes - it really grows on you. On Touch, Eurythmics consolidated the sound they introduced on Sweet Dreams, before they veered off into new directions with 1985's Be Yourself Tonight and the following year's Revenge. It remains a synth-pop classic.

However, in today's eyes the album seems a little outdated. Although the classics still sound fresh, other tracks seem to weigh the album down.

It has lost some of its value since 1983, but still remains a classic to fans of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Touched? You will be after this album., 23 Oct 2002
This review is from: Touch (Audio CD)
From the striking image on the cover to the final beats of "Paint A Rumour", this album sustains all the way through. For Dave and Annie, it was never going to be easy to repeat the winning formula from the "Sweet Dreams" album, but they pulled it off with elegance and panache. "Touch" was a transatlantic number 1 and proved that they really had evolved from the Tourists days. The opening track- "Here Comes the Rain Again" is a true musical masterpiece: sensual lyrics, piercing vocals and a multi-textured soundscape- this was one song that would stay with the duo forever. And listening to it, it stayed with me too. Other gems are the wonderful "Who's That Girl?" (made even more wonderful by the video with the 'twist'), "Right By Your Side"- cheesey but accessible to non-Eurythmics fans and the final 2 tracks: "Paint A Rumour" with it's monotic and hypnotic dance beat and "No Fear, No Hate, No Pain (No Broken Hearts)"- I can't really describe this tracks, but believe me, it's just so touching (excuse the pun!). Any down points? Just 2 really: firstly, 2 songs (notably "Aqua" and "Regrets") are quite repetitive, only redeemed by Annie's beautiful voice and secondly, with such a striking cover, perhaps there could have been more inside the sleeve. The FACE photoshoot which included the cover shot was excellent and merited a greater inclusion on the album art. BUT- a great album, and one that any fan or casual listener should have in their collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Regrets? None!, 4 Jun 2003
By 
Andy Millward (Tiptree, Essex, UK) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Touch (Audio CD)
In response to PA Schofield, Regrets always struck me as the most hypnotic track on this collection, which in turn is clearly superior to its predecessor (Sweet Dreams.) I've had the album on prerecorded cassette since it came out. I've rarely played any tape in the past 5 years, but I still have Regrets on the brain.
Furthermore, I saw Eurythmics perform most of these songs in the early 90s in a stunning gig at the Manchester Apollo; the freshness of the material remains undimmed.
Regrets in buying Touch? Not one!
