Amerie's 2002 debut, All I Have, found tough guys and urban sophisticates alike tangled up in the question of "Why Don't We Fall in Love?" It spawned a collaboration with Nas, and ignited a cult of cool around black-Korean culture. With her exotic looks and draw-the-shades sound, the smoky-eyed chanteuse came by her frothy fan base fairly. With Touch she pulls through for a second exercise in sultry, solid sound. Two tracks on this disc grab hold instantly: "1 Thing" forges its way from an R&B-spiked pop place into rockier territory, and "Touch" taunts Amerie's more amorous disciples with an expert sexiness. Tucked in are Whitney Houston-esque pop pleasers and a collaboration with Carl Thomas, "Can We Go," that feels friendly and unforced; other songs hint at a Mary J. Blige influence that will serve Amerie well as she struts her way toward serious musician status. --Tammy La Gorce

Look no further: the party jam of 2005 is here. Amerie's Top Ten single "1 Thing" has it all: a killer guitar hook, an infectious drum beat, and a groove so tight, you could bounce a quarter off it and still get change. Produced by Rich Harrison (who also produced the bulk of this album), "1 Thing" is the dance pop confection that Jennifer Lopez's "Get Right" (also produced by Harrison) should have been but wasn't. The rest of "Touch," Amerie's first album since her 2002 debut, doesn't approach the greatness of that single, but a few other r&b-flavored cuts come close. She gets her crunk on with a little help from Lil' Jon, who produces the Middle-Eastern-laced title track, while "Come With Me" and "Talkin' About" pass the time nicely. "Touch" doesn't break any new ground, but then again, it doesn't need to. It's just a good record with a bit of substance behind the groove.

I hadn't really known too much about Amerie. She emerged in a post-Aaliyah era along with Ashanti, though Ashanti proved to be a more commercial viablity than Amerie. I do know that a producer named Rich Harrison first emerged producing her first album "All I Have" & her first single "Why Don't We Fall In Love?". The single & album from what I understood showed promise for both of them in 2002.

Rich of course would go on to produce for Beyonce' & Jennifer Lopez amongst others. The question remained though, where was Amerie?

Then in the early spring of this year "1 Thing" Amerie's newest single from the then forthcoming album "Touch", catapulted her into the collective minds of both mainstream R&B and pop audiences. That single, helmed by Harrison, showed that despite the previous big guns he'd worked with his D.C. "Go-Go" sound worked best with Amerie's sweet stylist voice. The song featured a feverish sample from The Meters' "Oh, Calcutta!" which had an undeniable pop hook & an amazing R&B dance edge. The video was great because it recalled Jody Watley's runway piece from 1989 "Real Love", it was good to Amerie stepping up her game. This all of course made me take notice & made me purchase "Touch".

Overall, Amerie is a standard commodity as a writer & singer. She has an eye on the pulse of how she delivers what would be mediocre in the hands of others, & makes it stylish & accesible for her. The "go-go" sound is pretty much laced through the record, & only maybe three tracks fall flat; the garishly produced Lil' Jon crunk/go-go-lite affair of the title track comes to mind.

Otherwise, this is a pleasant mainstream black pop record. Hooky, stylish, & sexy without being trashy.

Now Amerie (Pronounced A-Marie) Has Done It This Time, I Was A Fan Since 2002, when Why Dont We Fall In Love hit airwaves in the summer, and the start was very catchy and it made me think about love, and simply that is what Everybody wants right, well that Cd was all about that and she was very hapy, and you wonder, Does she ever have a Bad Day? Well with Touch Yes She Does! This Cd Starts off with the theme to hitch "1 thing" the Rich Harrisson produced Club banger (Rich has a history of huge hits, Crazy in love-Beyonce, Get Right-J.lo, and Soldier-Destinys Child, as well as Alot of Amerie's hits). And its addictive, as Well As Eve's Remix, Second Hit, Touch.
Now Touch gives u a bit of a Strip tease from young Amerie, And in case u think its a crunk amerie you are hearing it is, It is a Lil Jon produced hit (AND THAK GOD THERE IS NO "WHAT" "OKAY" "YEAH" in the song) Also on the DVD there is the T.I. Remix, and Also there is MAn Up With Nas. well as for slow songs she has an amazing mix of sad, happy and well confusing tracks, like "rolling Down my Face" and "Not the Only One". And Amerie Decised to close the whole pakage with a remix of her trade mark Song "Why Dont We Fall In Love" and i assure you, you purchase either the Dual Disc of this one, You Will

AMERIE IS A UNIQUE SINGER, WHICH SHE SHOWS ON THIS CD. HER STYLE OF MUSIC IN THIS CD IS VERY OLD SCHOOL 80'S FLAVA STYLE TO IT. ALL THE TRACKS ARE LIKEABLE AND OK TO LISTEN TO.

MY FAVORITE TRACKS :

ONE THING - AWESOME SONG. THIS WAS A GOOD SINGLE FOR HER.

NOT THE ONLY ONE - ANOTHER FAVORITE SONG OF MINE. THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN A SINGLE.

COME WITH ME - ALSO SHOULD HAVE BEEN A SINGLE. HAS AWESOME BEATS.

TALKIN ABOUT - KINDA SOUNDS LIKE ONE THING.

JUST LIKE ME- A BEAUTIFUL BALLAD. THIS IS MY FAVORITE TRACK ON THIS ALBUM. HER VOICE SOUNDS SOOTHING. THIS SONG SHOULD ALSO HAVE BEEN A SINGLE.

THE OTHER SONGS ON THIS ALBUM R OK, BUT THESE WERE THE SONGS THAT STAND OUT MORE THAN THE OTHERS.I HOPE ON HER NEXT ALBUM SHE HAS MORE DANCEABLE SONGS LIKE ON HER SINGLE ONE THING.

Okay first BOO!!! to the record company for tainting my disc with stupid soft-ware to prevent people from copying it on the computer. If you can get this album without the soft-ware (which made it on most "what were they thinking?" soft-ware lists) then please do.

This album is fun, sexy, energetic, and classy. "1 Thing" is the best go-go R&B track released since Beyonce's "Crazy in Love". Amerie's voice fit the song becoming an instrument to complement Rich Harrison's rich production. My favorite songs are "Can We Go" and "Tears Rolling Down My Face". What makes these songs work is that Amerie knows her limitations and doesn't try to go where she has no business going. The production complements her voice, so you don't get a sense of Amerie singing songs that really are out of her range. I'm not saying she can't sing. She has a real lovely voice (Listen to "Tears Rolling..." and past tracks like "Talkin' to Me" to hear for yourself) but she does what really works for her like "1 Thing". I gave the album 5 stars because it's consistent and really sounds better through repeated listens. The production is also more varied and jazzy than her debut album (which is really good too).

Best Tracks:

"Can We Go" (That Earth, Wind, and Fire sample!)

"Tears Rolling Down My Face" (The horns!)

"1 Thing" that got me trippin' (Love the chorus!)

"Like it Used to Be" (Listen to the instrumentation during the chorus)
