AllMusic Review by

A raucous slab of lunacy as British punk parodists the Yobs tackle the very nature of Christmas itself, turning Santa into an anarchist and celebrating the season in a haze of drugs and alcohol. The highlight here might well be the run at "Jingle Bells," executed in a dirge-like style that references Gary Numan, though "Auld Lang Syne," gradually speeding from pub band to punk velocity, is also a likely candidate. There's lots of obnoxious and loutish behavior, and it's likely that many people will be offended...which is okay, because that seems to be the point.
