5.0 out of 5 stars Handle with care: This is classic rock with drive!, 6 Jan. 2001
This review is from: Not Fragile (Audio CD)
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!
