Racing (音速 Onsoku?) is the nineteenth studio album by the Japanese heavy metal band Loudness. It was released in 2004 in Japan. On April 6, 2005, the band released the English version of the album, the first entirely sung in English since 2001. An international edition was released on August 9, 2005, published by Drakkar, with a different track listing, a different cover and little differences in the production of the solo parts.[2] A special international release of the album contains as bonus tracks the entire Rockshocks album of self-covers from the 1980s.[3]
