The fun, quirky single "Video Killed the Radio Star" garnered The Buggles international attention in 1980, but it was just one of The Age of Plastic's fascinating, futuristic visions. From the title track's opening strains, Trevor Horn and Geoff Downes transform your living room into a world of Jetson-like proportions. It's a world, though, where technology is seen for what it is - full of both promise and frightening implications

The Age of Plastic is the debut album by the English new wave duo the Buggles, released on 10 January 1980 in Australia and 4 February in the United Kingdom. It is a concept album about the possible effects of modern technology. The title was conceived from the group's intention of being a "plastic group" and the album was produced in the wake of the success of their debut record, "Video Killed the Radio Star" (1979), which topped the UK Singles Chart.

This proved to be a very resonant message to listeners at the time

The Age of Plastic was released in January 1980 and reached No. 27 on the UK Albums Chart. Three subsequent singles were released: "(Living in) The Plastic Age", "Clean, Clean", and "Elstree", all of which charted in the U. .1980–1981: Collaboration with Yes. In early 1980, Horn and Downes began work on a second Buggles album in London, working in a studio next door to the progressive rock band Yes, who had lost vocalist Jon Anderson and keyboardist Rick Wakeman following failed recording sessions for a potential new album

The Buggles were a UK electropop, new wave group that formed in 1977, consisting of Trevor Horn (bass guitar, guitar, percussion, and vocals) with Geoff Downes (percussion and keyboards). The Buggles' sound was characterised by a deliberately synthetic quality in keeping with the technological subject matter of their songs. The group had a smash hit with the first single from their debut album, 'The Age of Plastic'. Song "Video Killed The Radio star" famously provided the 1st music video ever played on MTV (on August 1, 1981).

I still lived in Belgium when the Buggles hit big with the "Video Killed the Radio Star" in late 1979, and couldn't wait to snap up their debut album, back in the vinyl days. Now, 30 years later, I bought this reissue. The Age of Plastic" (11 tracks, includind 3 bonus tracks; 48 mi. plays like a trip back in time, and plays surprisingly well, frankly. The album starts off with "The Plastic Age", an epic 5 min. track that expands on the sound of the "Video" tune. The original album only had 8 tracks, 4 on each side, and was a quick listen
