"The Reflex" was the third and last single to be taken from their third studio album Seven & The Ragged Tiger (1983). The dance / new wave / funk song was heavily remixed for the single release and came out on April 16, 1984. Producer Ian Little recalled the sound Nick Rhodes came up with on his Roland Jupiter-8 keyboard: "...whenever I hear that steel-drum part it always brings a smile to my face because it's so out of tune. Streel drums always are, but it was exactly right in terms of rhythm and tone. So a wood-block sound was mixed in to make it even more percussive and, successfully, it did the job." "The Reflex" topped the hitlists in the United States, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Ireland.
