    After the lackluster pre-millennial tension years (Music Is Rotted One Note, Budakhan Mindphone, Maximum Priest) "Go Plastic" is a massive return to form. This is Jenkinson's signature sound taken to the next level, nobody does this quite like him. The sequencing is weighted perfectly, difficult tracks like "My F*cking Sound" sits well in the mix. A modern masterpiece it is.

        Great great album! Like lukenative reviews before, it will blow you away! Especially 'The Exploding Psychology'. Its such a damn massive track with so much freakness in it and that great 'come down' half tempo finish with this brilliant two unison synth figures - just heavenly! If you want to totally freak out the crowd just play 'Boneville Occident' which is such a great 'in your face' joint with some nice unexpected 'sorry, not this way' breaks in it. The closing of this LP 'Plaistow Flex Out' is a great atmospheric downtempo track which is really an excellent finish for a superb strange record.

        If you like this album, dont miss the 'My Red Hot Car' single which includes a amusing version of 'I Wish You Could Talk' called 'I Wish You Obelisk'.

        One of Toms bests. Thanks man!

          One of the most amazing electronic albums ever made. I have been listening to this since it's release and I am still blown away. A masterpiece of creative work. This is when Squarepusher made his mark.

            Full of abrupt and annoying sounds in a jumbled mess. There are a couple of tracks that have actual melodies and bearable soundscapes, but most of this stuff I can hardly consider music. Definitely not Squarepusher's best work, 1/5.

            And yeah, I know: I just "didn't get it". Well, if you want to be a part of a fancy little club, that "understands" music that no one else does, then this is right up your alley. Everyone else will probably want to steer clear of this crap.

              Tom Jenkinson at his best.
              Go plastic is a personnal vision and a mental twister from Squarepusher's prolific mind.
              There is sounds, tracks and shapes in this album that put your hears over and over. You will discorver little noises after listening my red hot car, or my fucking sound, even if it's not the first time that you listen to it.
              Go plastic makes everyone crazy, the scratches at the midlle are amazing and the mix of experimental and d'n'b into the beats puts the all track into a wierd dancing movement.
              The masterpiece of the album is, i think, the exploding psychology. This track it's like a sick dream of what any experimental track should be. I'm not kidding, the pads and the work on the echoes make any electronic lover put on his knees saying respect, respect. The melody at the end will grab your skin for a long time...
              Another crazy sound is greenways trajectory. Remembering mixing it in a free party when the sun rise up, and all the dogs of the place came over the wall, screaming and yealing at it. There's ultrasounds at the middle end, will you hear it ?
              Plainstow flex out is the way for squarepusher to remind us that he can also do slow things, suchlike tommib.

              This is a mark in electronic history, don't miss it !
