Then and Again is the fourth studio album by Cuban American dark cabaret singer Voltaire, released on October 26, 2004 through Projekt Records. Contrasting with most of Voltaire's albums, on which his songs are mostly humorous and satirical, Then and Again features more serious and introspective songs, dealing about love, heartbreak and the human condition.

"Goodnight Demonslayer" is a lullaby composed by Voltaire for his son Mars, then an infant.

"Lovesong" is a cover of The Cure.

The song "Halló elskan mín" is partially sung in Icelandic. It is an homage to one of Voltaire's ex-girlfriends, who hails from Iceland.

Donna Lynch and Steven Archer of Ego Likeness provide additional vocals for the tracks "Believe" and "Wall of Pride".[1] Archer also plays the electric guitar.
