Everytime We Touch is the debut album from German Eurodance group Cascada, consisting of DJ Manian, Natalie Horler, and Yanou, first released on March 24, 2006. Recording sessions for the album took place during Fall of 2004 to January 2006, most of which was recorded after the third single from the album Everytime We Touch rose to popularity. It took only three weeks to record.[1] The entire album was produced by the two disc jockeys from Cascada, Yanou and DJ Manian. The album is comprised heavily of up-tempo Eurodance tracks, many of which are covers of hit songs from the 1980s and 1990s of the synthpop, Eurodance, and rock genres. Musically, the album is composed of dance tracks with thick Euro synths, trance beats that clock in over 140 beats per minute and Europop lyrics. Lyrically, the albums is composed of love songs and dance floor euphoria.

Critical reception of the album has been mixed to negative, with many critics disliking the repetitive beat and saying the album had too much filler. Most critics did admire, however, its chart success for a dance album in the tough U.S. music market. The album has sold about 2 million copies worldwide.[2] There was a total of seven singles released from the album. "Miracle" and "Everytime We Touch" were released in America and were the only singles that received gold and platinum certifications. Along with "Truly, Madly, Deeply", these singles attained notable chart success internationally, peaking in the top ten in countries like the United Kingdom, Ireland and Sweden. "Bad Boy" and "Ready for Love" were released as the second and the seventh single from the album and failed to attain any chart success. "A Neverending Dream" and "How Do You Do!" achieved minor chart success in Ireland, the United Kingdom and Austria respectively.

USA Today 3/4 stars[6]

Sharon Mawer from Allmusic gave the album a mixed review and said the album's songs were for "dancing to" in a "club with lights flashing and people all around" but said that "after an hour of the same repetitive beat, one's senses can become a little jaded."[7] Dom Passantino from Stylus Magazine gave the album a C+ and said the album had "a lot of filler" and called "Everytime We Touch" unoriginal and said 'Miracle' "is the end result of a bunch of producers kicking back in the studio going "Hey... whatever happened to Lasgo? I think we could do a track like those guys, y'know?" He said the cover of Kim Wilde's 'Kids of America' was "fantastically pointless" and that it "removes the original's cocaine paranoia and replaces it with some German guys going "la la la la la."[8] Ken Barnes of USA Today, however, awarded the album 3 out of 4 stars and said that "you couldn't ask for a more insanely infectious concoction." Unlike Stylus Magazine, Barnes said the album's covers were "fairly boggling" and that they all "survive the alchemical transformation into the dance medium in [a] thrilling fashion."[9]

Chart performance[edit]

The album was accidentally released on iTunes for digital download on February 11, 2006, ten days before its scheduled release, in what was said to be a computer error. The album entered the Billboard 200 at number 67, selling over 17,000 copies in its first week. It has gone on to sell over 100,000 copies in the US.[2]

In the United Kingdom, the album entered the charts at #6. It then went on to peak at #2.[10] It spent 28 weeks in the UK Albums Top 75, and 35 weeks in the Ireland Albums Top 75 (where it peaked at #1).[11] The album went on to sell over 600,000 copies in the UK, achieving Platinum Certification.[12]
