Lost in Paradise is the 4th album by German band X-Perience. It was released after a break of six years since their latest album Journey of Life. After touring and promoting the last album, Polydor/Universal released the promotional single "It's a Sin", a cover of the Pet Shop Boys song (2003). The band took some time off and Claudia released a solo-album under the name Angelzoom in 2005.

The album includes ten new tracks and three remakes of their greatest hits, "A Neverending Dream", "Circles of Love" and "Magic Fields". "Return to Paradise" was the first single, released in October 2006. The second single was "Personal Heaven", a duet with Midge Ure. With the last single "I Feel Like You", singer Claudia Uhle decided to leave the band.

The album entered the German Album Charts on No. 78.
