AllMusic Review by

Few albums have the ability to polarize listeners like the debut release from Shampoo, a pair of teenage girls from the U.K. Within seconds of the opening track to We Are Shampoo, the curfew-breaking "Trouble," most listeners will either be gleefully giggling along with the girls or scrambling for the stop button. Musically, We Are Shampoo is somewhat akin to Bananarama or Transvision Vamp but, frighteningly or amusingly, not as talented. It's breakneck bubblegum with lyrics that are shouted rather than sung. For listeners wanting something lightheaded and chock-full of perkiness, songs like "Trouble," "Shiny Black Taxi Cab," and "Shampoo You" ("Shampoo you, that's all we want to do") will do the trick nicely.
