Touch is the debut album by Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan, originally released in 1988. The first released single from the album was Vox in 1988, followed by Steaming in 1989. The album was popular in alternative rock circles, but McLachlan would not achieve commercial stardom until 1991 in Canada. In 1993, McLachlan and Nettwerk were sued by Darryl Neudorf, a Vancouver musician and former member of 54-40, who alleged that he had made a significant and uncredited contribution to the songwriting on Touch. Although both McLachlan and Nettwerk acknowledged that Neudorf was involved in the album's production, both took the position that his contribution had not been primarily in songwriting. The judge in that suit ultimately ruled in McLachlan's favor. A reviewer on allmusic.com says, "Touch was the first album anyone heard from the singer. Only 19 at the time, McLachlan had years to go before she would become the seductive songstress of Fumbling Towards Ecstacy or the sensitive balladeer of Surfacing. Instead, she has more of an ethereal sound, enhanced by keyboards and a lush production that gives it a polished feel. Bringing to mind the '80s incarnations of both Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush, the songs here are moody pop tracks that showcase her incredible range more than anything else. A few tracks, especially Vox and Steaming, are beautiful tracks that have a light sense of yearning that she would later develop into the sensual crooning of her mid-'90s work."
