A much-needed reissue of this obscure gem of British post-punk from 1981. The Reflections were a sort of post-punk super-group formed by Mark Perry (Alternative TV, The Good Missionaries, The Door And The Window), Dennis Burns (Alternative TV), Karl Blake (The Lemon Kittens) and Nag (The Door And The Window). Perry and Nag share vocal duties on an album that opens with the disheveled pop nugget "Tightrope Walker" to go through more reflective moments such as "Demon of My Desires" and "Clamming Up," to outbursts of noisy experimentation and free-form passages that verge towards no wave ("Nag Takes a Ride," "The Parting"). The wonderful cover of Roky Erickson's "The Interpreter" deserves a mention as one of the highlights of a flawless LP.
