4.0 out of 5 stars Capture the distant past........ 4 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
........and listen to a fine band who knew their stuff and played it well. Nothing fancy here, just straight down the line rock, not too heavy, not too light. And pretty darned catchy too.

When I listen to this album I can't believe it was recorded over 25 years ago. Its a classic rock album with good natured lyrics and brilliant lead solos by Randy Bachman and Blair Thornton. Although BTO are remembered for 'You Ain't Nothing Yet' the album 'Not Fragile' shows that these old rockers were an all round class act. No keyboards mare this guitar-drum band. Every track is catchy, every track has a satisfying guitar break. To describe each of the nine tracks individually could be considered a waste of time. Every track is good. But here are some highlights: The title track 'Not Fragile' is wonderfully understated as it starts with its clean base line before the power chords and drums blast your eardrums. 'Rock is My Life, and This is My Song' is a musicians track, balanced and educated with a drive that steadily increases as the song progresses. 'Second Hand' is for all those air guitarists. Safety Warning: If your driving while listening to this track remember the speed limit! If you have ever wondered what all those pedals are at the feet of guitarists, the shiny one Randy and Blair use on this track makes 'that' sound and is called a 'wah-wah'. I wonder why? 'Givin' it All Away' concludes the album. It is fast and boppy, and may make you want to dance over to your CD player and hear the whole album over again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Abandon hip all ye who enter here 8 Nov 2003
By Patrick Neylan VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Let’s face it, Smashie and Nicey destroyed this band’s reputation by adopting ‘You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet’ as their theme song. That song is here, in all its twee poppiness, destroying all hope of any retro-hip rehabilitation for BTO in the new century, but it can’t disguise the fact that this is an album of relentless power and energy. The global hit single is the exception, not the rule.
CF Turner’s roaring vocal more than offsets Randy Bachman’s thin voice (as heard on YASNY), and the ‘no-frills’ approach pays real dividends throughout. Don’t expect anything but hard, straight, uncompromising rock music, complete with beards and lumberjack shirts. It is, after all, what this band was good at. BTO will do nothing for your street-cred, but they will provide you with a great night in on this album (with the curtains bashfully drawn).
Not Fragile is an album of thunderous, boogie-rock, crisply executed with a foretaste of later ZZ Top, only heavier, and reminiscent of an era when rock could be heavy without being metal. For once, the cover is a reflection of the contents.
If this review reads like an unrealistic eulogy for a band that epitomises 1970s rock badness, let it not be forgotten that most of BTO’s other output truly is trash (except the first album). This is the one worth having. So why not start your hip replacement therapy by buying a copy from those good people at Amazon? There’s a button to click somewhere on this page…

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for fans of Smashie and Nicey! 6 Dec 2008
Format:MP3 Download
I think the biggest reccomendation I can give to this album is the following story;
I first became aware of this album when, at no mroe than 10 years of age (I'm now 25), I was rummaging through my dad's LPs (remember those?). Something about the artwork really attracted me to it. What's more manly than a big wooden crate full of chunky metal cogs right? I sat there for the next 40 minutes or so in our living room with my dad's headphones on in Rock 'n' Roll Heaven! I remember taping myself a copy and it came with me everywhere for the next year or so... right up until a school friend introduced me to the delights of Ugly Kid Joe and I forgot all about these legendary Canadian rockers. The folly of youth eh? Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is this; I have not heard this album in at least 14 years yet every song is exactly the way I remember it. I can name maybe one or two other albums which stand the test of time so well. That's some serious songwriting right there.
I'd reccomend this album to anyone with a love for anthemic rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless classic 7 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've had this in 3 different mediums, Vinyl, Cassette & now CD, absolutely love it, everyone knows "you aint seen nothing yet" but there is better songs on here in my opinion, Free-wheeling/Giving it all away/Second hand, in fact just by it and loose yourself in 9 glorious solid rock anthems. A great buy

5.0 out of 5 stars The definition of metal 23 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is pure rock. If you want a definition of rock then this is it..if you don't appreciate this album as a pure unrefined example of what guitars and drums are for, forget it and buy a travis album

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fantasic stuff. Was abit concerned about what the quality of the transfer being an old album, but whoever did the remastering or whatever deserves an award as it sounds great on my setup.
Can wholeheartily recommend.
