The album consists of ten new compositions, eight of them composed by Edgar Froese, one by Thorsten Quaeschning, and one by both. The four-page booklet contains short "imaginary descriptions" about each title, taken from notes from Franz Kafka's diary and extensive liner notes by Edgar Froese closing with: "Although Kafka wasn't able to finish his last work, The Castle, he didn't need to; he has said everything that needed saying... It s impossible to transform The Castle into music. That's why it will never be more than an incomplete and abortive attempt. If we fail, then at least the risk is worth applause."
