Trivia Edit

  • The title of this album is depicted as "GAUZE+" on the front cover, but it's not considered to be the actual title.
  • According to Die, the word "Gauze" was first considered as an album title in a studio in Los Angeles, 1999.
  • The booklet contains additional poems that can be read here.
  • Instead of Arabic digits, the band uses German words to number the tracks of this album.
  • The LP version was given out in a lottery to 100 people who sent in the entrance tickets included in the first press versions of the Cage and 予感 singles, attached to a postcard included in the first press version of GAUZE. 300 other people received a coin, 1000 other people received a set of three pictures from the jacket cover.
    • As of July 23, 2018, I have discovered the numbers 22, 30, 32, one between 45 and 50, 61, 84 and 92, as well as four versions with unseen numbers.
