This album is catchy, upbeat and fun, combining a wide variety of sounds from different genres like jazz, lounge, house and pop. It's got a sense of humor that is silly and quirky. It is simply a great album to listen to.

<I>The Fantastic Plastic Machine</I> is The Fantastic Plastic Machine’s US debut. Makes sense, doesn’t it? It’s a wild mix of disco, lounge and 70s psychedelic pop that the Japanese seem so adept at. “L’Aventure Fantastique” is club-ready; it’s so peppy, you’ll be high for a week. There’s lots of kookiness on display here; for instance, what’s up with the lyrics of “Dear Mr. Salesman”? (Answer: they’re not meant to be taken seriously.) Their cover of Joe Jackson’s “Steppin’ Out” is pure genius, an all-time lounge classic. “Philter” sounds suspiciously like a reimagining of an Italian movie theme. A few tracks are slightly clunkier than others (“Please, Stop!”), but overall, the album is tremendous fun and spirited.
