Plastique is a 2009 album by Sole and the Skyrider Band. It was the band's first release on Fake Four Inc.


Rick Anderson of AllMusic gave the album 3 stars out of 5, saying: "This is not your typical hip-hop, that's for sure -- but most of it is well worth the effort required to absorb it."[1] Andrew Dietzel of PopMatters felt that "[this] isn’t something for the Pollyanas and Dick Cheneys out there, that much is certain, and it must be said that this kind of unrelenting cultural irreverence is essential to the welfare of music, and society at large."[3]
