The Fantastic Plastic Machine is the first album by Fantastic Plastic Machine, released in 1997. A light, bouncy and cheerful-sounding album, it is known for its heavy drawing from bossa nova, 1960s-era French pop and electronica. The album is considered by many to be a masterpiece of Shibuya-kei music and it strongly defined the artist's sound.
