Bachman–Turner Overdrive. Comin' to you across country Hoping boogies still allowed You ask do we play heavy music Well are thunderheads just another cloud, we do Not Fragile, straight at you. Then we vanish to the night Still in your ears but out of sight Not Fragile.

Bachman-Turner Overdrive. Not Fragile is one of the finest arena rock albums of the era, featuring all the hallmarks of what makes a classic release in the genre. Randy's impressive guitar work and typically boisterous vocals complement the overall framework of the album superbly, as do the crunchy rhythm guitars. This release will astound fans of the genre and band, while those thoroughly against stadium rock may find something to convert their views.

Not Fragile' was the Canadian group's breakthrough third album, and went on to achieve triple-platinum sales. As Bachman tells author (and UCR contributor) Sterling Whitaker in the book 'Unsung Heroes of Rock Guitar,' the story of how the album got its name is a good one. "Well, in the early '70s Yes had an album called 'Fragile,' and I didn't like that album title. It seemed like it was gonna break! Our music seemed like you can drop it and kick it around and it wouldn't break.
