Reflected Images is the second compilation I've reviewed called The Best of Altered Images. The A sides of all the 7" singles are covered (except for "Song Sung Blue" and "A Day's Wait"), and there are 2 songs from each of the first two albums and one from the third (none of which appear on the other Altered Images Best of that I have reviewed). There is also "Last Goodbye" the b-side to "Don't talk to me about Love". A lot of the disc space is taken up by having multiple versions of several tracks:
Happy Birthday (4 versions)
Don't Talk to me about Love (2 versions)
Love to Stay (2 Versions)
Bring Me Closer (2 Versions)

Altered images always did interesting 12" mixes (I am enjoying "Bring Me Closer" as I write this) so I don't begrudge them these,and it's nice to have the brief "Happy Birthday" (intro) & (outro) at the start and end of the CD respectively, but one of the appeals to me of the previous compilation I reviewed was its variety whereas this CD seems a bit extravagant when other songs could have been put on this disc instead.

The booklet contains glossy photos from the Bite album era and a complimentary overview of the band by John Peel on whose show they featured regularly from their early days.

On its own I don't think Reflected Images is as good as the previous Best of that I reviewed but it compliments the other one nicely (particularly with its 12" mixes) and between the two discs only 8 tracks appear on both CDs (some difference in opinion perhaps on what the best of Altered Images is so between the two CDs you have 31 unique tracks. This CD is also often available very cheaply on Amazon Marketplace.

A superb collection of songs, well worth getting if it's only for the trip down memory lane.

Wow, Clare Grogan - What more can I say. Who didn't fall in Love with her when she sang 'Happy Birthday' on Top of The Pops in 1981. This LP charts the bands career from this time through to the more sophisticated latter years. The band, for me, started off brilliantly and after their amazing debut album never really managed to capture the same magic. It was great listening to the first single 'Dead Pop Stars' again after hearing it on John Peel's show all those years ago. It still sounds as fresh and vibrant now as it did then. This really is a good complilation but it would have been nice to have had 'A days Wait' and 'Beckoning Strings' included. Altered Images really were a great band that were underated. Oh Clare!
