Born is the first album released by the classical crossover string quartet Bond. The album was a huge commercial success, reaching Gold in fourteen countries and Platinum in twelve. The album was also no. 1 in the UK Classical charts, but was subsequently removed from these charts for not meeting all the 'rules' of classical music.

The album was re-released in 2001 with an additional track.
