Disclaimer II is the second studio album by South African rock band Seether. It is a recompilation of the band's first album, Disclaimer, from 2002. Although the 12 tracks from the original album are present, they have been slightly remixed and differ from the original. Also, the majority of the remixed tracks feature additional lead guitar melodies with the addition of a permanent lead guitarist to the band's line-up prior to the release of the album; this is also the first Seether album to feature contributions from their current drummer John Humphrey. In Europe, the album includes four tracks more than its predecessor; in the United States, the album has eight extra tracks, some of which had been previously released on soundtracks, such as "Hang On," which had been featured on the 2003 Daredevil soundtrack and "Out of My Way," which had been featured on the soundtrack to the 2003 horror film Freddy vs. Jason. "Fine Again" also appeared on Madden NFL 2003 and 1080° Avalanche.

A primary reason for the reworking of Disclaimer was the popularity of "Broken." Originally a simple acoustic ballad, it was remade into an electric, duet version with vocals by Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee, who was dating Seether frontman Shaun Morgan at the time. This new version was originally featured on the 2004 Punisher soundtrack and had an accompanying music video. Both the US and European releases include the new rendition of "Broken," and Disclaimer II subsequently became Seether's most successful album commercially; the song "Sold Me" was used for WWE's Bad Blood pay per view, along with WWE also using "Out of My Way" as the entrance theme of Zach Gowen. The song "Take Me Away" is an acoustic version of a track from their first independent album (originally as Saron Gas), Fragile (2000).

Background[edit]

The idea of releasing Disclaimer II was a record label decision. Shaun Morgan didn't want to include the new version of Broken with Amy Lee on the first album, because he thought the first album was finished. Eventually the band and the label came to a compromise; they recorded extra tracks for the album, as they wanted to include it as a bonus CD. Instead, the label discontinued the first barcode on the first album (which is why Disclaimer II is considered Seether's second album) and they had to add the new version of Broken, as it was part of the deal.[4]
