This is the first Helloween album where all five band members got a songwriting credit, although Markus Grosskopf has contributed only to two tracks ("Walk Your Way" and "Still I Don't Know") that are not featured on the regular album tracklist, but only as singles B-sides, in expanded editions or in compilations. The longest track of the whole record though, "Mission Motherland", is officially credited to "Weikath/Helloween".
