"Late is the new Donna Regina release and the third album by the Cologne duo Regina and Günther Janssen to appear on Karaoke Kalk. Their lyrics still tell of very personal questions, fears, longings and experiences, as on the albums before, and that spark of pop-like melancholy still resonates in them. Only the angle from which these thoughts and feelings are viewed seems to be a different one. The lyrics appear more confident, self-assured, bolder. In 'Not A Girl Anymore' Regina Janssen speaks of this fact without regrets or doubts but simply describes what it means to her. Less questions remain unanswered in the air. Instead, they are being thought through to the end and then presented, together with the answers, as experiences. The arrangements of the tracks, the related sound elements, melodies and instrumentations show a similar development. More experimentation takes place; new, as yet unknown facets emerge. Sometimes the tracks are unexpectedly electronic and minimal, then again remotely reminiscent of classic singer/songwriter tunes. With Late, Donna Regina have once again moved an enormous step forward. And again they succeed in surprising even those who had long been convinced anyway."
