  1. Positive: 0 out of 6
  2. Negative: 1 out of 6
  1. Har Mar Superstar's never been known for solid full-lengths. He's a song-based artist, and Dark Touches features some of his best singles.
  2. Q Magazine
    Fluff, maybe, but very entertaining fluff. [Dec 2009, p. 115]
  3. 60
    Although this album is an improvement from his previous work, to fully understand this album (and his work overall), you must see him live.
  4. Uncut
    Even a nice take-off of moody Pharrell-style R&B, "Gangsters Want To Cuddle Me", and a rap by Adam Green can't save Dark Touches from being fairly irritating. [Nov 2009, p. 88]
  5. Alternative Press
    Dark Touches has its catchy moments, but sticking a song in the listener's head is not the same thing as creating important music. [Nov 2009, p.109]
  6. Yeah, it’s his shtick, and you could laugh with him if the music was in any way exciting. Unfortunately, however, Dark Touches filth-funk fury is made impotent by sheer lack of hooks.
