All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
When the sweet and breezy "Why Don't We Fall in Love" came out in 2002, a lot of critics were quick to discard Amerie as another attractive puppet with a capable voice who relied on producers and slick imagery. She was an inauthentic fluke, apparently, and if she were to become successful, it would have more to do with low standards -- and the inability to appreciate real female artists like Norah Jones and Alicia Keys. These were easy and lazy things to say, especially since the songwriting credits for Amerie's first album, All I Have, showed that the singer only had a hand in writing the one-minute outro. The majority of the work was handled by Rich Harrison, a young ...

When the sweet and breezy "Why Don't We Fall in Love" came out in 2002, a lot of critics were quick to discard Amerie as another attractive puppet with a capable voice who relied on producers and slick imagery. She was an inauthentic fluke, apparently, and if she were to become successful, it would have more to do with low standards -- and the inability to appreciate real female artists like Norah Jones and Alicia Keys. These were easy and lazy things to say, especially since the songwriting credits for Amerie's first album, All I Have, showed that the singer only had a hand in writing the one-minute outro. The majority of the work was handled by Rich Harrison, a young producer/songwriter with some Mary J. Blige credits but no big hits at that point. Between late 2002 and early 2005, Amerie's presence faded, while Harrison's became impossible to ignore, nearly mirroring Dallas Austin's rise with Boyz II Men, Another Bad Creation, and TLC. Harrison's work on Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love," Destiny's Child's "Soldier," and Jennifer Lopez's "Get Right" made him one of the most talked-about producers around, so the time became right for Amerie to hit back. Genius lead single "1 Thing," like "Crazy in Love," swings on a kinetic drum loop, this time courtesy of the Meters. It's just as exciting, flailing all over the place with unbound joy, and it's equally deserving of summertime omnipresence. Key point for sticklers with strict authenticity principles: in addition to knocking the beat out of the park with an ecstatic vocal turn, Amerie gets a songwriting credit. In fact, she had a hand in the penning of all but one track on Touch. To further emphasize the album's reliance on Amerie's talent, there are no guest MCs -- a rarity for a mainstream R&B album these days -- unless you count the Eve verse on a bonus remix. Most importantly, regardless of who's responsible, Touch has a better batch of songs than All I Have, and it seems to have ears both young and mature in mind at the same time; the mostly strong production work Lil Jon, the Buckinghams, Bink, Red Spyda, and Dre & Vidal also take part, laced with the occasional memory-triggering sample Roy Ayers, Jean Carn, Earth, Wind & Fire, won't hurt anyone either.

    Kept doin wut u doin

    This album is better than her first but not everyone can make a outstanding first debut. She has shown improvement on this album and maturity if I can say that. Keep those producers and surprise us with some new hits.

    Amerie Does It Again

    I thought Amerie's first albulm was going to be hard to follow up cause of her hit "Why Don't We Fall In Love" but she keeps that same soulful sound and some must listen tracks include "Not The Only One" and "Touch" is a track that we will hear hitting the clubs soon. I highly recommend this albulm.

    AMAZING ALBUM

    Wow, Amerie has done it again! She has clearly grown since All I Have. This album is for every type of listener! It has a nice mix of both slow and up-beat tracks. This highly anticipated cd is the reason the repeat function was made in cd/mp3 players. It's evident that much work was put into this record, and Amerie (who co-wrote/produced every song) will see results of her hard work. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANYONE to buy this album, as I see it being the R&B album of the year. I am already waiting for the next album, which hopefully won't be too far away!

    Don't Count Her Out Yet

    Critics and even some listeners alike said that the (foxy) Amerie would be a one hit wonder, simply because she put out a successful single. This was just a taste of what was to come. She hooked up with Rich Harrison for a much stronger, sexier, and for more booty shakin' beats,on her 2nd release "Touch". You could say she's broken that one hit wonder spell. Though her first, with it's laid back breezy tone, didn't make a hugh impact in the R&B world, it was still worth a listen. On her second album, now armed with an arsenal of rump shaken, exotic and sexy beats,listeners might consiter Amerie a refreshing change between Mariah Carey, Ashanti, and those like them. "Touch" is a Hot album, looking foward to her third.

    Best R&B Album By Far in 2005

    Amerie's first single '1 Thing' is not just 1 thing to love about this album. The voice, sound, and production of 'Touch' makes this in my opinion a surprise to me, I never thought what Amerie was really capable of. I didn't really listen to R&B till I decided to take a listen to this album, and Amerie, I'd thought I'd let you know that you changed that.

    Amerie could've done better

    I like this CD overall, but it seems like all of the hooks to her songs follow the same beat. One Thing is definitely the stand out track. Its a decent CD but I would put her first one in the CD player before this.

    Amerie's 'Touch' is real music to the listener.

    She is truly gifted with a voice and energy I haven't seen in some time. Her lyrics are clever and heartfelt. Each and every song moves you and opens up your mind to soar beyond the obvious. I plan to get the debut album. I am touched by Amerie.
