Reflections is an album by the American poet and musician Gil Scott-Heron, released in 1981. It was his second album without Brian Jackson. Scott-Heron supported the album with a North American tour. Arista Records mailed a copy of "'B' Movie'" to every member of Congress. "'B' Movie" was a hit on Black radio stations.


Scott-Heron was backed by the Midnight Band. "'B' Movie" is a criticism of Ronald Reagan, whose image appears on the album cover in one of the lenses of Scott-Heron's glasses. "Inner City Blues" is a version of the Marvin Gaye song. "Grandma's Hands" is a cover of the Bill Withers song.
