Eurythmics - Touch

The Review

I grew up in the era when electronic music was forcing its way into the mainstream. As a young spotty teenager I was an indie music fan (Back when indie music really was indie) and naively felt that music without real people playing real instruments wasn't really music.

These days when I hear electronic music I find myself singing along and realise that despite my feelings of the time I must have still been listening as I seem to know all the songs.

Even though I didn't like electronic music , I never seemed to mind the Eurythmics. I suspect I probably just had a crush on Annie Lennox like almost every other male at the time.

Listening to this album now 30 years later the tunes feel like they could have been recorded just yesterday. The album has a timeless feel to it meaning although you know the songs are old they don't feel it.

Why Does This Review Exist?

I am working my way through Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of all time list and reviewing each album.

  • Each album is listened to only once.
  • The album is used as background music while working so how much attention I pay to it will depend on what I am doing at the time.
  • I do no research about the album or the artist.
  • The review is a one off, one moment opinion that may change with further listening.
