Six/Nine is the eighth studio album by the Japanese rock band Buck-Tick. It was released in a clear purple case on May 15, 1995 through Victor Entertainment.[1] It peaked at number one on the Oricon chart[2] and has sold 240,000 copies worldwide.[3] Issay (Der Zibet) provides vocals for "Itoshi no Rock Star". "Rakuen (Inori Negai)" caused controversy because some of the lyrics were lifted from the Qur'an. Later, the album was re-issued with the offending part removed on September 21, 1995 in a clear case. It was digitally remastered and re-released on September 19, 2002, with a bonus track. The album remastered once again and released on September 5, 2007 in a clear red case.
