Not So Tough Now is an album released in July 1996 by Frenzal Rhomb, the follow-up to their first album Coughing up a Storm. This was the last album with Ben Costello on guitar, who was replaced by Lindsay McDougall not long after its release. The secret track at the end of the album is said to be a song about his departure.

Reviewed in Juice at the time of release, the contrast of, "the ocker inflections, beery aggro and dumb-fun pretences" and Jay Whalley's "philosophy student upbringing" were noted. The supporting music was said to be more intense and dense than their previous effort, and sounding similar to NOFX.[1]
