Title: The age of plastic
Author: Red Starr

Publish date: February 7, 1980

THE BUGGLES: The Age Of Plastic (Island). Yet another album with heavy electronic and futuristic flavouring, but by contrast this is quite human and therefore the most enjoyable of the lot. Just as “Video” was a truly brilliant pop single, this is practically a model pop album - lots of energy, well constructed, imaginative and above all a set of GREAT TUNES throughout. A gem - buy it! Best tracks: “Video Killed The Radio Star”, “Plastic Age”. (8 out of 10).
