(as Seether)

Fragile is the debut album by the band Saron Gas, which would eventually become Seether. The album was released only in the band's native South Africa. After this album, Wind-up Records asked the band to change their name—because "Saron Gas" was a homophone for sarin gas, a deadly nerve agent—and the band decided on "Seether", the title of a song by the American Grunge band Veruca Salt.

The versions of the tracks on this album are unique, though seven were re-recorded for Disclaimer. It is notable that all the singles from Disclaimer were originally from Fragile and no originals from the next album would be singles. "Take Me Away" was re-worked into an acoustic song for Disclaimer II.

The seven tracks re-recorded for Disclaimer were: "69 Tea", "Pride", "Fine Again", "Driven Under", "Your Bore", "Pig", and "Gasoline".
