4.0 out of 5 stars The magic of Lennox and Stewart July 29 2006
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
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.

By Louis TOP 500 REVIEWER

When the Eurythmics released "Touch", their third studio album, they had already established a sound and an image for themselves. The intriguing combination of funk, Euro-beat and rock featured on their breakthrough single "Sweet dreams (are made of this)" had made music lovers turn an ear in their direction. In that respect, the success of the "Touch" album (featured here in a remastered version with lots of extra tracks) was the element that solidified their position as one of the leading pop acts of the 80s.

The Eurythmics have always been an ecclectic duo, and "Touch" is perhaps the epitome of their experimentation. The album covers the widest range of music that they have ever recorded, from bright salsa ("Right by your side") and tribal chants ("Aqua") to cold electronica ("Paint a rumour"), covering all the bases in between. "The first cut", "Regrets" and "Cool blue" are as funky as can be, while the gentle melodies of "No fear, no hate, no pain (no broken hearts)" and "Who's that girl" cannot totally hide the seething rage and deception of the protagonist. Add to that the bittersweet "Here comes the rain again", which could subjectively be considered as the ultimate Eurythmics single with its instantly memorable melody and unforgettable lyrics, and the result is an album with no weak moments. It can be argued that the synthesizer-heavy production of the album makes it sound dated at times, but the first-rate compositions and Annie Lennox's elegant and expressive vocals make it soar well above the crop of mid-80s synth bands. In spite of their allegeance to early 80s arrangements, none of these songs make you feel like the album was all about production tricks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Jan. 6 2006
By DAJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album was arguably Eurythmics' finest contribution to music. It is amazing that an album with such experimental leanings could sell nearly 10 million copies worldwide, but it did, largely on the strength of two magnificent pop singles, "Who's That Girl," and "Here Comes the Rain Again." Along with "Right By Your Side," they solidified Eurythmics as one of the 80's best and most successful pop groups.

What is interesting, though, is that the hits are anomalies in a way. "Regrets" hits hard as an electronic post-punk manifesto. "Cool Blue" and "Paint a Rumour" are very electronic, experimental, Kraftwerky recordings. And the magesterial "No Fear, No Hate, No Pain" is Annie Lennox at her best--punk, techno, and opera all wrapped into one.

Now the downside. Though the original tracks sound great, the bonus tracks here are anything but essential. Given the Eurythmics busy schedule here (the album was conceived and recorded in just 3 weeks), it is understandible that there wouldn't be much left over in the vault from these sessions. But the "long version" of Paint a Rumour is pointless. The space could have and should have been used to feature the best tracks from the "1984" album, which was inexplicably cast aside in the remastering project. The extra time on the disc would have been plenty for such stellar songs as "I Did It Just The Same" and "Sexcrime."

But it is worth the money to have the original album remastered. It is one of the landmarks of 1980's music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bonus Tracks - A Total Letdown! March 21 2006
By Anthony Morelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
With that said, I really enjoy the album itself. "Touch" has always been one of those quarky albums with a lot of experimental sounds & ad lib. Not my favorite Eurythmics album, because of songs like "Right by your side", "Here comes the rain again" and "Who's that girl". Ironically, I never cared for those 3 songs, although they're the "hits" of the album. "Regrets", "Paint a Rumor" and "No Fear..." are my favorite tracks. "Touch" is eclectic and dark, yet has a lighter side as well. Although it's not as edgy as "Savage" or "We too are one"...it's still powerful and Annie, as always, packs a great punch with lyrics such as "...an electric wire, stuck inside your head".

Recording/Sound quality is excellent. The artwork and unseen photos are gorgeous. Nice bio & layout in the booklet too. But, I'm very disappointed in the Bonus Tracks. Nothing impressed me there. I wasn't pleased with their rendition of David Bowie's "FAME" either. It's too short and just does NOT fit in at the end of 6 ridiculous bonus tracks. Talk about Cheap! What were they thinking? How could "You take some lentils..." possibly be a song at all? STOOPID!!! What a waste of space, and to make matters worse, "ABC (Freeform)" doesn't pick up the pace. What about songs which do the band some justice? Come on, guys! Does anyone know what these 2 songs are supposed to represent? I was totally let down when I played 'em. Don't hold your breath when you see the title "Plus Something Else", for it's just an instrumental of "Regrets".

If you want your money's worth, buy the Deluxe Edition of "SAVAGE" instead. At least you'll get something really polished and moving. There's nothing worse than an album with 7 bonus tracks of rubbish (referring to "Touch"). I'm really glad I didn't have to pay much for "Touch" on amazon....because it's definitely not worth the full price. Shame on you, Annie & Dave!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dumb Hearts Get Broken Just Like China Cups. Nov. 25 2005
By Jason Stein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eurythmics continued to strengthen their repertoire with "Touch", their third album. Yet again, only the three hits "Here Comes The Rain Again", "Right By Your Side" and "Who's That Girl" were given airplay when the other six tracks were just as superior. In fact, this album marked a more experimental turn with the epic "Paint A Rumor" and "No Fear, No Hate, No Pain (No Broken Hearts)" as well as "Aqua". "Regrets", "Cool Blue" and "The First Cut" also showcased a darker, edgier Eurythmics sound. Not one track was out of place, and not one note was wasted on this album.

The remastering is excellent, and the b-sides are bountiful. However, they are not up to the quality of the b-sides offered on the previous two album remasters (see "In The Garden" and "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)"). Yet, I did like the acoustic versions of "Here Comes The Rain Again" and "Who's That Girl", but the long version of "Paint A Rumor" and the instrumental "Regrets" retitled "Plus Something Else" seemed wasteful. The cover of Bowie's "Fame" isn't very good. All of this does not detract from the original album and it's mark in the Eurythmics catalogue.

I am also going to make a statement here about "1984 (For The Love Of Big Brother)", the album that followed "Touch". I am disappointed that Annie and Dave did not think highly of that work. It contained nine tracks, three of which I think are some of their best work like "Sexcrime (1984)", "For The Love Of Big Brother" and "Julia". I think it's criminal for them to snub their fourth album just because it was a soundtrack. To me, it was always, and still is, a great album that I consider to be a Eurythmics album, not a soundtrack. I hope Dave and Annie really reconsider their decision not to make it part of the remastered series.

So, "Touch" is definitely worth having, and certainly one of the best Eurythmics albums.
