Go Plastic is an electronic music album by Squarepusher. The album was preceded by the single "My Red Hot Car".
The album shows a marked increase in musical complexity over its predecessor, Selection Sixteen, featuring a more open-ended, less structured approach to composition which was explored further on Do You Know Squarepusher, and culminated with Ultravisitor.
The track "Tommib" was featured in the films Lost in Translation and Unleashed.

The king of experimental drum and bass cut-ups is back with more recycled timestretched madness. Taking a darker and more complex approach to song writing this time, he's managed to push beat manipulation to it's furthest coherent limits all without sacrificing the overall integrity of a 'song'.
For all it's 250+bpm madness, there remains some lovely melodic touches - especially on tracks like "I Wish You Could Talk" and "My Red Hot Car". However, for all the dextrous and filtered wonder on this album, there is a rather disturbing trend with Mr. Jenkinson's work as of late. As you begin comparing his releases, you notice it's often the same loops used over and over again - the differences between them only in how they are arranged. "Bonneville Occident", for example, could easily be a remix of "Come On My Selector". For a man this talented, innovation should be a walk in the park. In any case, Mr. Jenkinson is still way ahead of the rest of us ... but for how much longer?.
