For art fans, these albums are reproduced in black & white for the first and only time.
From the back cover:
In a world of fifty-second soundbites, multinational corporations, and drug cartels, how would we deal with the coming of a new Messiah? University professor Mangel, a restless man haunted by his inner demons, becomes involved in a plot by a group of religious fanatics to bring about the birth of a new Savior; and he has been chosen to be the reluctant father. Are they a sect of dangerous madmen, or is God really using them as his messengers?
