        I own the three studio albums released in Germany and this one will surely make it to my collection as well. I'm so happy !

          Same here. I also got the physical singles of "Dangerzone", "Megamix", "Blue Tattoo" and "Cool Vibes" and I saw them live at Edeka-Familienfest back im 2005 haha.

          ​​​​​​Tbh, I think they are part of the reason why I listen to Symphonic Metal today.

          Unfortunately, I think that the lead/comeback single is underwhelming.

            Wow, an unexpected comeback. Never heard one of their albums in full, but always loved their singles & obviously have a soft spot for them since they did so well for us at the ESC <3 Definitely going to check this out!

            Low key sad Maarja is not back with them though. Her solo single Shine It On is still among my most favorite songs ever...

              Just heard the first single for the first time and while I do enjoy it, it sounds kinda simple / cheesy, right? Probably no surprise though, it's basically what I expected...

                Possibly you will like Mango, it's old Lithuanian girl group, which came back in 2020 and already recorded some good hits,

                In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

                    Nice pop country song, which sounds like Swedish girl groups Timoteij and Cookies 'N' Beans.
                    Possibly I already can name a title of my favourite album from 2021 year.

                          In Germany, I expect a similar result to Jeanette's and Lafee's comeback: lower top 10 debut + 3-5 weeks charting.

                            ^ My expectations are probably a bit lower since Vanilla Ninja were never nearly as big as Jeanette or LaFee were.

                            Anyways, I just finished my first spin... and I'm disappointed. It's just not an exciting album at all, rather boring and IMO has not much to do with their earlier stuff. Personally I don't like No Regrets at all but as a single, it's actually a good indication of what to expected from the whole record so I also think LastDreamer will really enjoy the album nonetheless.

                              Both have been f*cked differently one by singing in German and the other by going schlager and release bs covers.

                              Don't Worry, Cause You're Really Not That Hard to Replace.

                                Well, who could blame them: They tried to solve trends that worked for others (Jeanette --- Sarah Connor, Lafee --- Giovanni Zarrella). I guess it just didn't come across as authentic coming from Jeanette or Lafee.

                                        Another first week position, their fourth but lowerst entry over there.

                                        Second weeks so far:

                                        Swiss Album Charts

                                        Out (13) 1 Encore

                                        Shocked it's completely out in Germany, and probably even more shocked to see the album rising over 20 spots in Switzerland - how?
