Reissue of this classic album from the British punk legends. The Gospel According to The Meninblack (or sometimes referred to as just The Meninblack) is the fifth album by The Stranglers, an esoteric concept album released in 1981. The album deals with conspiratorial ideas surrounding alien visitations to Earth, the sinister governmental Men in Black, and the involvement of these elements in well- known biblical narratives. This was not the first time The Stranglers had used this concept; 'Meninblack' on the earlier The Raven album and subsequent 1980 single-release "Who Wants the World?" had also explored it, though not to the same level.
