AllMusic Review by

Without question, Mirror Image is the most atypical Blood, Sweat & Tears album ever. The last disc recorded before David Clayton-Thomas' return to the fold, Mirror Image features three lead vocalists (Jerry Fisher, Jerry LaCroix and George Wadenius), three saxes (LaCroix, Bill Tillman and guest artist Arnie Lawrence) and only one trumpet (Tony Klatka). The album is uneven, but still has its moments, including "Tell Me That I'm Wrong" (a minor hit), "Are You Satisfied" and its (rock) reprise, and the concluding "She's Comin' Home," where Klatka's trumpet echoes Wadenius' mournful vocal. It's no "Hi-De-Ho," but it's got some surprisingly strong material nonetheless.
