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".
