As The Music Plays is the debut album released by Pinoy rock band Bamboo following the return of Bamboo Mañalac in the Philippine music scene after 5 years of hiatus in the United States. Bamboo immediately gained fame for the track "Noypi" which captivated the hearts of the youth and sparked patriotism in the Philippines. This album contains 10 tracks, with 3 in Tagalog, namely: "Noypi", "Hudas", and "Masaya".

The initial release of the album used a white cover. Later in the same year, Bamboo released a new version with a black cover containing 6 bonus tracks and 3 video clips of "Noypi", "Masaya", and "Mr. Clay".
