Released internationally as "Disillusion", with English lyrics. Bonus tracks on the Japanese CD reissue (2. 0. 2004): Crazy Doctor (live English version) (04:18) Dream Fantasy (live English version) (04:37). Recording information: Recorded in September '83 at SARM Studio, London.

Recorded in London, "Disillusion" featured the band's most killer production to date courtesy of Julian Mendelsohn(who had previously worked with a dynamic array of artists such as Yes, Jimmy Page, Elton John, and Bob Marley)who along with the band managed to perfectly capture the power of Niihara's vocals, the catchiness of the songs, the savage beauty. The English version however, simply features a band photo against a red back-drop with "Disillusion: English Version: Loudness" printed vertically above the photo. Suffice to say, the Japanese cover is WAY cooler! But it's the music that truly matters and both versions deliver that with flying colors. So if you are a LOUDNESS fan but have never heard "Disillusion", it is an essential purchase!
