Repercussion is the second album by The dB's. Like its predecessor, Stands for Decibels, the album was commercially unsuccessful but has since developed a cult following. It is now arguably regarded as just as much of a classic as Stands for Decibels by both fans of power pop and rock fans in general.

Repercussion Definition from Religion & Spirituality Dictionaries & Glossaries
Repercussion Striking back, as when a wave rebounds from a surface. In theosophical literature, applied to the phenomenon in which a blow aimed at the phantom of a living person takes effect on the person himself, as though it rebounded. It can occur in spiritualistic seances, when something done to a materialized form takes effect on the body of the medium. It is one of the secrets of black magical practices, such as that where a wax image of a person is made, and objects stuck into it, thus causing equivalent injury to the living person aimed at.
A similar effect may be produced in an unborn child by something which happens to the mother. A mental picture, an astral form, and a physical form are three linked stages in a series; which explains how a sorcerer can use his imagination for his evil purposes, and how the imagination of a mother can affect the body of the unborn child.
