Real to Real Cacophony (sometimes incorrectly rendered as Reel to Real Cacophony) is the second studio album by Scottish post-punk band Simple Minds. It was released in November 1979, through record labels Zoom and Arista.
Real to Real Cacophony has been generally well-received by critics. AllMusic praised the album, describing it as "where Simple Minds ventured beyond the ability to mimic their influences and began to manipulate them, mercilessly pushing them around and shaping them into funny objects the way a child transforms a chunk of Play-Doh from an indefinable chunk of nothing into a definable chunk of something", calling it "an achievement that's on a plane with other 1979 post-punk landmarks like Metal Box, 154, Entertainment! and Unknown Pleasures".
The 2002/2003 re-issues by Virgin Records incorrectly render the album's title as Reel to Real Cacophony, and the opening track as "Reel to Real". The new spelling also appears in the discography section of all the inlays in the 2002/2003 Simple Minds remastered edition series. Subsequent editions render the title of both the album and track correctly.
