Top Ten Music Artists that Should Record a Comeback Album
Having released four albums overall, Vanilla Ninja were an essential part of the European music landscape of the mid-2000s for three albums (at least in certain countries). Then, they vanished. Despite never having officially disbanded, they are gone forever. Fans know that. Their last album was in 2006, their last live performance in 2008. But hope dies last that they will come back.
Here we have another critically acclaimed band spending too much time with touring. Your last album was 2011 and you're considered one of the best bands of the 21st century. Get up and recond a fourth album!
Rammstein never broke up and never were on hiatus. They have been successfully touring since their last album in 2009. All of their albums topped the German charts (except for their debut record), and are regarded as masterpieces.
Dear Rammstein. Stop touring, get up and record a new studio album, it's 2017!
Surprised System of a Down or Tool wasn't on this list.
Marit Larsen and Marion Raven were childhood friends with a common passion: music. At age 14, they wrote their own songs, sang them and also played the guitar. They recorded the two most natural teen pop albums of all time. Without any gimmicks, without anything remotely commercial but also not anti-mainstream. Just two young teenage friends discovering that their emotions become more complicated, and turned that phase into songs. They received critical acclaim and were already considered the next big superstars of Europe.
Then, they grew apart - and M2M ended.
They didn't match anymore, musically and personally.
Marit Larsen essentially stayed an innocent, light hearted pixie with a sweet attitude to this day. Marion Raven became more rock-ish and rebellious. They both have moderate success with their music. And according to interviews, they are not in touch anymore.
I still wish they came back. Of course not with teen music. But when two people together could create such ...more
They had a big hit in German speaking countries with "Eisblumen" in 2008, and both of their albums were moderate successes, even though they'll most likely remain a one hit wonder. Their sound was a bit Evanescence-esque and Germany was lacking such an artist.
They are officially still together, even though I can't find any information anywhere what exactly they are doing now. Hopefully recording a third album.
Hip hop fans will know. After only two albums with the fabulous Fugees, one magnificant solo album and one live unplugged album with new material, she completely vanished despite being regarded as one of the greatest hip hop artists of all time. She could rap and she could sing, and she could write. What else do you want?
Dear My Chemical Romance.
Apart from the fact that you never saw yourself as an emo band and are always considered the best in said genre/subculture... the general public regards you as one of the best bands of all time. Even over here, where most emo-associated bands are not that well known unless they are either German or if you are an emo yourself, you were popular and received critical acclaim. Get back together and record new material. Make your legacy even bigger. Music history will remember you no matter what.
Ich + Ich were megastars in 2000s Germany. People loved them, critics loved them, everybody loved them. They were a bit of indie, a bit of soul, a bit of poetry, a bit of pop. A bit of everything.
After three hugely successful albums they went on hiatus after 2009, and still are.
Adel Tawil released successful solo music, but the two are best together. Hopefully, the hiatus won't last forever.
They made an album in 2020. Today is 2021.
In the 90s, they were a pop cultural phenomenon. Media was all about them, those three rapping girls with the raunchy attitude touching on risky topics, while at the same time having had personal scandals, they were completely new and original. German hip hop would become mainstream in the very early 2000s, but actually Tic Tac Toe were one of the first widely successful hip hop acts, though musically very different.
Then they broke up in 2000. In 2006, they got back together for one album, then broke up again. This time, they wanted to quit from music industry forever. Lee also decided to not stay in contact with anybody.
But still: everything about them was awesome. Begore thug rap, before multisyllsbic rhyming, before rap battle tournaments, before judging rappers by their word play... this was fun and not so serious. I wish they'd come back with their outrageous attitude.
Jeffree Star's only album "Beauty Killer" is an irresistable, catchy, entertaining, surprising, exciting and simply fun pop record by a completely unusual and over-the-top artist. He's no musical genius and not much of a talented singer, but the overall package was just a lot of fun. Maximum fun. And that is what pop music is about. Then he got an even bigger label contract, and released cool and promising pop singles. He could have made it to a big pop star, especially in times where artists like Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry or over here in German speaking countries Conchita Wurst or Jamie-Lee Kriewitz made being freaky and outlandish cool. But he all of a sudden decided he didn't want to be a music artist anymore. Just like that. He wanted to create make up from now on. I respect that decision but it's just sad for me, because well, makeup has no real significance to me, but music of course does. He would have added much individuality and pleasant weirdness to pop music.
