Back in the dark ages (the era commonly known as 1994), this was the first CD I ever bought. Almost 10 years on, I do not hide it at the back of my music collection blushing with shame when people pull it out and make a face. Instead I smile proudly and insist they listen. Similar to much of today's rock-pop, Shampoo were all about teenage rebellion, doing what you want, when you want, and this album shows nothing but that. Yes, some (if not all) of the tracks are cheesy; yes, the entire jist of the song can be obtained from their long-winded titles alone; but that doesn't kill the message in the album, which is, as I understand it, about being individual, and about being cool. Jacqui and Carrie could wipe the floor with all these new teen 'punk' groups, and THAT is why this CD still comes with me everywhere I go!

Viva la megababes! 23 Dec. 2003
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A year or so before the Spice Girls spread girl power in the UK and Puffy AmiYumi landed their brand of power pop in Japan, there were two bratty pint-sized girls, Carrie and Jacqui, aka Shampoo, who made a brief spark with We Are Shampoo, a power pop band with a sound similar to Voice Of The Beehive, but instead of the deeper concepts explored by VOTB, lash out with barbed swipes. The Divinyls and Nirvana have nothing on these girls--they get fiercer as the albums goes on.
"Trouble" was the first single and despite the power pop guitars, the overall sound doesn't serve as a spearhead to introduce them to the US. The raucous and bratty rap in the verses put them as a female version of the Beastie Boys. More than that, it was featured on the soundtrack to the first Power Rangers movie, but only got a few seconds in the movie, which may also have led to the lack of promotion Shampoo got in the US. That's what the trouble is with this song, a lack of something.
"Delicious" is more characteristic of Shampoo's power pop sound, featuring Generation X-ish guitars and bratty vocals. Now this would've been a more potent way to introduce them to the US market, but nobody listens to me.
They pat themselves on the back with the wall-like fuzz guitar of "Viva La Megababes," which describes them as "a cool sensation! what a creation!" "Who's the latest teenage dream?" on the front of every magazine." "camera's watching when we go shopping." Quite an ego trip there, but with a great sound.
"Dirty Old Love Song" has the girls slamming the likes of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, criticizing the false front the radio divas put on with that snarling guitar going on. The message here is basically, despite the clean-image marketing, and lyrics about their hearts being on fire, they're basically singing dirty old love songs. However, they really slam the two thus: "tacky and cheap/sickly and sweet/don't forget to keep your receipt" Ouch! Even though I have the deepest respect for Mariah, I admit these brats do have a point.
"Skinny White Thing": A rocking number against the snobby, fashion models "you've got style, you've got looks, but your brain's off the hook, hanging in the hall." Point scored. "Skinny white thing/living in your own wet dream" Ooh, another one! The intensity of this song rivals "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
"Glimmer Globe" is another song with a great guitar and really pronounced drums banging away with abandon. It's about the disco days, "before the strife: but also "before the desert war and before the lost boys came knocking on your door."
"Shiny Black Taxi Cabs" is a song about them having a night on the town and ending up with them throwing up in the cab, to which cabbies rants about them, "Bring back hanging. Hanging? Hanging's too good for them." Love that catchy pre-chorus bit: "midnight traffic light, green's for go-go/back seat joyride, we love Soho."
The pace changes a bit with the reggae-ish "Game Boy" about someone too obsessed to beat their highest score on the video game system. "Game boy/ain't she got no brain, boy?" they go.
The other songs maintain the energy level, especially the techno/rap of "House Of Love" all wrapped with that power pop wall of sound. And the girls really let loose with the guitars and outraged screams on "Saddo" about the condition of no parties, no funs.
The ne plus ultra of their sound is a ferocious attack that earns them the epithet Sexy Pistols. It's that fierce! "We Don't Care" again has that punk rock attitude that would go over well with the likes of Sid Vicious. "we don't care if you think we're dumb/we don't care about anyone/we don't care because we're young/because our time has just begun." Best song here by far.
The phrase of the light burning twice as bright burning twice as fast seems applicable to them, as they fizzled out. Raucous, loud, silly fun that sadly didn't last long. Call them Voice Of The Beehive mixed with the Sex Pistols, but with a lot more attitude. A unique one-of-a-kind album, and viva those megababes!

A fun album 13 Jan. 2004
By Erica Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was digging around my cd collection when I came across Shampoo's "We Are Shampoo". I had this cd for several years now. I bought it back in '95 or '96. I had heard "Trouble" in a trailer for the first "Might Morphin Power Rangers" movie (blech!). I loved what I heard. It was a bouncy, infectious pop song that blended a bit of bubblegum pop with the searing guitars of punk music. I found a promo copy of the British act's cd in the used bins at Atomic Records (a really excellent independent record store), when I lived in Milwaukee, WI. "We Are Shampoo" is a fun little album to crank up to and listen to without feeling guilty. Imagine the Spice Girls without slick, glossy production and with guitars and the results is Shampoo. The songs may not be masterpieces or political for that matter. They are just fun, catchy pop songs with a huge dose of sense of humor injected. My personal favorite songs off the cd are "Trouble", "Delicious", and "Shiny Black Taxi Cab" which basically describes the duo's drunken antics. Unlike Avril Lavigne, Shampoo don't take themselves remotely serious. It shows through songs like "Game Boy", "Shampoo You", and of course "Shiny Black Taxi Cab". It is too bad that this duo didn't get far. "We Are Shampoo" is a great party album to crank up in the stereo.

Glam 15 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Glitter, Glam, Power Pop, Girl Power at it's best. Spice(rack)Girls got nothin' on these 2 gals from Plunstead England. The track "Shiny Black Taxi Cab" (Go to club, get drunk, throw up in Taxi) is just plain fun. "Game boy" has the best melody on the album. "House of Love" was meant for a huge dance floor and tons of screaming clubkidz. But by far the song "Delicious" is worth shelling out the cash for this disc. It's a pop song if I've ever heard one. I definatly recomend this CD if you like late 80's glam rock, The Electric Angels, or just being in a good mood.
Girl Power predecessors 2 Jun. 2006
By chris banez lim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Twas attributed that the purveyors of 'Girl Power' pop girl-groups that came around in the nineties (along with less desirable --correction: NOT desirable boy bands, rather) happen to be the Spice Girls, albeit contested by the then-less known girl group All Saints who lay claim to the matter, 'twas actually said that this pop-girl british duo commenced the format - as it levels to such a condition of a stolen concept from a lesser known group made popular by another manufactured band (as it was the case with the band SIZE 14).

This british pop duo first surfaced to appear on certain movie soundtrack cd compediums for such movies as BARB WIRE and MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS The Movie, this debut (?) of theirs presents a fine piece of palatable pop, that comes with shades of sound that are akin to Punk, Rock and dance music.

Notable of the album is their feature single the cutie pop-tune "Trouble" (that was also commisioned for the POWER RANGERS movie made with another music video for the song to match) which came around long before the Spice Girls' catchy "Wanna Be" single- when this cd also featured a certain number of tracks that are quite really worth the while to hear, such as "Skinny White Thing", the grungy-pop grinding beat of "Glimmer Globe", "Me Hostage", "Dirty Old Love Song" (a take on the crappy sort of likes in pop music), the alluringly lovely track "Shampoo You", and the closer "Saddo" - that makes you feel the want to squeeze these girls. Yummy.
(And like slim shady as for his feelings for the spice girls - on my part i'm-a wondering who among these two gurls should i---*)

It's also a plus to know that these girls have the talent for creating their own songs, along with their record producer (a certain person by the name of Con), and their take on the track "House of Love" is also a good piece for the dancefloor, amplifying a fitting stance regarding the acid-house genre.

I find that the cover pictured here at Amazon for the album is different from the japanese-issued copy (wherein one of the girls is wearing a SUPERGIRL shirt), and the one I have which is such as those that comes with an OBI-strip on the spine, and those that usually comes with some bonus tracks as well (this one doesn't), the cd inset also has pictures of dolls, toys and stuff along with its insert package (+ a lyric sheet - both in english and japanese).

I heard that their follow-up sophomore album 'Or Nothing' as I've sampled is also quite a neat treat, and a good one at that.
