Music Album Covers with a Reflection in a Mirror

Composite image of 25 album covers with a mirror reflection.

The criterion for selecting albums in this album cover mosaic is that a person or object is reflected in a mirror or reflective surface.  There were rearview mirrors and mirrored image album covers that we don’t include because they don’t meet the criterion. 

The idea of the Greek myth of Narcissus is invoked in several of the 25 images included here.  In many of the images, we feel like a voyeur eavesdropping at an intimate moment.  The Def Leppard mirror doubles as a skull as well.
