AllMusic Review by

Debut from this Flying Nun act, which featured 3D's guitarist David Mitchell flexing his "Here Come the Warm Jets" wall of noise guitar in sporadic bursts over the agile backing of this classic indie group. After the fact, it is evident from this LP that Goblin Mix were overlooked and under-appreciated; overshadowed by labelmates the Clean and the Chills, the band demised in the late '80s well before their time. Echoes of this album can be heard in later Flying Nun, as well as Kiwiophiles Pavement and Yo La Tengo, who have tipped hats to this awesome and crafty avant- pop band.
