An American Human League? Abba? Book of Love was that good, earning the comparisons while remaining a wholly unique outfit. A handful of singles as good as the highlights of this retrospective would improve current radio immeasurably. I Touch Roses´ 15 album cuts and remixes drawn from the California group´s Sire releases (1985-´93) reflect a love of pop as an art form and a wish to communicate rather than merely sell.

An American Human League? Abba? Book of Love was that good, earning the comparisons while remaining a wholly unique outfit. A handful of singles as good as the highlights of this retrospective would improve current radio immeasurably. I Touch Roses´ 15 album cuts and remixes drawn from the California group´s Sire releases (1985-´93) reflect a love of pop as an art form and a wish to communicate rather than merely sell. Though linked to the synth-pop era, Book of Love was as much rooted in girl groups and other ostensibly throwaway stuff; in turn, cuts like the title track, "Boy," and "Sunny Day" remain as vibrant as "Give Him a Great Big Kiss" or "You Keep Me Hangin´ On." Only a post-new wave outfit such as this, though, could´ve gotten away with an innocent Exorcist tribute such as "Tubular Bells," much less one that appears here adjacent to the ultrasweet "Counting the Rosaries." It´s hardly nostalgia that makes this disc sound so fabulous: Book of Love´s shouts and coos should appeal to anyone under, say, 90--anyone, that is, whose heart and tear ducts remain alive.
