Park is the sixth album from The Mad Capsule Markets. Sometime in 1996, PARK was their first album to be released in the United States, with two mellower bonus tracks (the same bonus tracks as on the original limited Japanese pressing), but there was little interest. The album shows the band start to incorporate rap metal influences, an element that would become crucial in their later style. The melodious elements from Mix-ism are still prominent in several tracks. The album is often considered to be one of the band's best works. Hide praised the album as a perfect example of state of the art Japanese Rock.[1][2][3][4][5]
