Album

Cover

The cover shows the outside of a so-called "Black Box". A little device in, for example, a plane, which records everything that is happening on the plane and is nearly indestructible. When a plane crashes the black box can be restored to save the audio file and then later find out what happened on the plane before it crashed.

As a little gem to this, there is a hidden track on the album, BEFORE "Reise, Reise". So you have to rewind into the minus of the song. It is a black box recording of the Japanese Airlines Flight 123. During the crash 520 of 524 passengers were killed. Up to now, it remains the deadliest single-aircraft crash in history.
