Mirrored is the critically acclaimed debut full-length album by U.S. math rock group Battles. It was released on May 14, 2007 in the United Kingdom, and on May 22, 2007 in the United States. This is the first time the band has incorporated vocals into their songs, as the previous EPs were completely instrumental (aside from beatboxing on the tracks "Dance" and "Fantasy").
