4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite on a par with Sweet Dreams - but close!, 26 Aug 2006

Being a fan of Dave and Annie's electronic ventures more than their rock/acoustic tinged affairs, "Touch" has a lot going for it (as do the subliminal "Sweet Dreams" and tensely quirky "Savage"). However it was very much their intention to move away from icy electonica and hence several of the tracks on here feature a lot of bass guitar played at breakneck speed! The end result includes classics such as "Who's that Girl" and "Here Comes The Rain Again" along with rather dark experimentation such as "Aqua" (about a gangland style killing, recalling Annie's radio interviews at the time) and the kraftwerk tinged disco-fest of "Paint A Rumour". "Regrets", "Cool Blue" and "First Cut" are all quite samey, but her voice is faultless throughout. "Right By Your Side" was a hit, but sounds rather dated now with it's mock sambas and handclaps. Sound quality is excellent on the remaster, although it does reveal some vocal distortion here and there, and there are some nice new pics/liner notes too. The bonus tracks are somewhat varied - why include the 'long version' of "Rumour" when it's almost identical to the album version (30 sec longer and slightly punchier eq-ing - but exactly the same material) instead of "Who's That Girl" extended mix? The live tracks and "Fame" cover are nice curios though, and round off a generally strong and well-presented reissue.

4.0 out of 5 stars The magic of Lennox and Stewart, 7 Jan 2006

Back to the early 80s for the incomparable Lennox and Stewart, the duo of that decade! The synth-pop classic Touch has been reissued with extra tracks in deluxe packaging with new photographs and an informative booklet. And the music has stood the test of time surprisingly well.
Not quite on the level of Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This), Touch 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 synth-pop sound they introduced on Sweet Dreams, before they veered off into new directions with 1985's Be Yourself Tonight (Soul/R&B) and the following year's Revenge (Pop/Rock). My favorites amongst the additional tracks include the live acoustic Here Comes The Rain Again, the extended version of Paint A Rumor and their interesting take on David Bowie's Fame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Regrets, 11 April 2008

This is a classic album from the 1980's, and brings back many memories. It got me listening to Eurythmics in the 1st place. "No Fear, No Hate, No Pain", in particular, is a superb track that, for some reason, is not on our "Eurythmics Greatest Hits" CD.

I bought this album to replace my vinyl copy, and was pleased that they had remastered it. But why, or why? does the record company feel inclined to fill the rest of the CD with such dross, that upsets the balance of the original album - I, for one, would have paid the full price for just the original 9 tracks. As it is, I have only loaded these first 9 tracks into my iTunes library, and will be burning a 'scratch' CD of them to play in the car.

Wow - I have this on vinyl and hadn't played for years so bought the CD. Took me back to schooldays. Just as good as it was then - plus there are some additional dance tracks which are great too. Excellent packaging and the booklet is well worth a read - Cool Touch :-)
