    Great sounding lp, real clean and loud sound. On the vinyl version you can the bass a bit more if you get it you'll love it as its pressed really well,

      ...back in 1994 shampoo soon got accused of being pop bimbos just ripping off the latest trend which was the 'riot grrrl' version energy pop punk (pop punk?real or fake?) but just one listen to the lyrics and we soon find urban poetry detailing the lives of teenagers from estates both prole and the more 'refined' middle class enclaves from the provinces...set to machined aged computer rock rhythms shampoo discuss being drunk in unfamiliar parts of town, shoplifting as a way of life, parental (non)control, fake 'love' songs, trendy posers and other such real life anxieties as make up problems and no spending money...all done with great humour and satire shampoo ridicule the hypocrisy rife in society (at least the society they know about) and this leads to the question - is this real or is it fake, what's the difference in art if fake is of a higher standard than real and real is just a distortion that exists to justify a certain perspective held by certain parties at specific times in the societal continuum, shampoo rustle up a picture of existence that quite a few can identify with...

        This is such a fun release from early 90’s brat-pop duo Shampoo. Before the Spice Girls brought girl power to widespread public awareness, these two were spreading messages of female empowerment with their rad and raucous sound. The album plays like a precursor to Charli XCX’s Sucker and features infectious choruses with surprisingly searing and punchy production. Highly recommended if you’re a fan of Charli or Icona Pop, Shampoo did it first and their rocking power pop anthems don’t deserve to be consigned to oblivion just because they were a few years too early. Viva La Megababes!
