5.0 out of 5 stars The Buggles's critique of much more than video and radio
The Buggles have their place in music history because their quirky hit "Video Killed the Radio Star" has the distinction of being the first music video shown on MTV. But their 1980 debut album "Age of Plastic" deserves to be remembered on its own terms; not just for the "futuristic" music, but because the lyrics represent a coherent critique of the world of technology as...

3.0 out of 5 stars An 'average' album.
'The Buggles', like so many groups that had just one major hit, probably made a mistake in the choosing of their follow-up single which was not so powerful. However, three Top 40 hits to your name in such a short period of time can not be bad!

This includes the extended version of their massive number one classic from 1979: 'Video killed The Radio Star'...

This includes the extended version of their massive number one classic from 1979: 'Video killed The Radio Star' and just seven other songs which leads to a comparatively short and average pop album.

2.0 out of 5 stars None of the other tracks come close to 'Radio Star', 8 July 2012

This review is from: The Age Of Plastic (Audio CD)
It's not exactly a bad album. But it's hard to avoid comparing the other tracks to 'Radio Star'.
