Images is an album by the Italian singer and songwriter Lucio Battisti. It was released in September 1977 by RCA Victor.

The album is a collection of five songs from his previous album, Io tu noi tutti, and two of his classic songs ("Il mio canto libero" and "La canzone del sole"). All of the songs were translated into English by Peter Powell. In the United States, the album was considered by critics a relative failure: this was partly due to Battisti's vocal performance in a foreign language, partly due to the translation and disco-inspired arrangements that, although pleasant, were not able to convey the spirit and all the nuances of the original songs.[citation needed]
