    Summary

    This over-the-top cassette release literally shook the CCM community when it openly and blatantly went gunning for popular religious media personalities by name! Critics freaked out over the band's raw boldness and call to radical holiness and over Yambar's controversial cover art that depicted a dead Christ draped in the arms of PTL Club hosts Jim and Tammy Fae Bakker, Jerry Falwell and Jimmy Swaggart, whose faces topped the bodies of giant writhing serpents. Voted the best independent CCM release of 1986 by numerous underground critics and publications the world over!

    In fact the CCM community was very controversial about the offensive cover (HQ version here), so it was quickly reissued with a neutral one:
