Profile Melodic catchy Rock in European style,  played  sung and  produced very well, with a brilliant rhythmic section, dreaming lead solos ,  good aesthetics and some dark starting points!

Heavy on the bass, “Bad Devotion” starts the album off and provides quick introduction to the skills of Infinite Dreams. Miriam impresses immediately with her flawless performance, particularly on the catchy chorus. Sandro Huwiler’s keys are a constant, and remain so throughout the album. Never overwhelming, the keyboards are used very effectively in creating atmospheric melodies and lending an appropriate accompaniment to Severin Schürch’s great bass lines and Michael Giger’s chunky riffs. Giger also impresses with his leads, such as those on the title track. Miriam shines again on this track, displaying remarkable range and depth of feeling.

The melody and chorus is particularly memorable, giving this song definite radio hit potential. “Lost In Your Arms” is another highlight, taking a more bluesy slant than other songs on the disc. Giger lets loose a bit with some colorful leads and a tight solo, while Miriam adds a sultry element to her delivery that is reminiscent of Alannah Myles. A big guitar sound and mesmerizing keys herald the beginning of “Afraid To See The Light”. Very basic in structure, this song nevertheless provides one of the more memorable choruses on Touch My Skin. Huwiler brings on a tender interlude before the song ramps up with some chunky riffs from Giger. Mid-tempo is the overall pace of the album, but the ballad “Everything Has An End” slows things down another notch.

Schürch’s bass is the prominent feature here. Emotional and intricate, he mixes well with Giger and Huwiler. Steady and reliable, Mark Steffen’s work behind the kit isn’t flashy or pummeling but his timing never falters throughout. Wrapping up Touch My Skin is “Call Of The Road”. With an opening riff slightly similar to Poison’s “Ride The Wind”, the tune is up-beat, infectious, and one of the best of the disc. Worthly to be checked if you like bands like Alyson Avenue, Yankee Heaven and Shiva.
