Sweet Robots Against the Machine is the eponymous debut album from Sweet Robots Against the Machine, pseudonym for Japanese electronic musician Towa Tei, released in 1999 in Japan only on EastWest Records. In its original form the album came with a bonus disc which contained the last track "A Night of Ubud".

As was the case with Tei's previous albums, Sweet Robots Against the Machine incorporates a variety of musical styles, although its base-genre is electronic. Included on the album is a cover version of Patrice Rushen's 1982 hit "Forget Me Nots".
