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.

For the most part, The Age of Plastic is a fun record that doesn't need to be taken too seriously, though a subtle sense of loss is woven throughout " The vision here is so beautifully articulated that the superb musicianship and production wizardry is easily overlooked

Their first album, The Age of Plastic, is a delightful mix of pop, disco, and electronic music, and worth engaging with from start to finish. It’s a nostalgic, yet forward-looking, album that deserves to be played at house parties, dance clubs, and wherever else people are looking for solid, joyous, upbeat music. The Buggles started with an air of sarcasm, as the name plays on the idea of The Beatles and is meant to conjure up the image of bugs that live in a recording studio.

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).
