AllMusic Review by

If the Canadian band the Evaporators took themselves seriously, their side would be terrible. Instead, they rock out with some obnoxiously catchy pop-punk hooks that look up to the Mr. T Experience and the Smugglers -except not as musically skilled. Besides, it's hard to dislike a band that proudly sings choruses such as "Gimme some ointment/I need an appointment" on their title track of "I Gotta Rash." Thee Goblins are punk. Even if their music is just a mess of keyboards and drums, the party feel of their music makes this a pretty enjoyable side. As a bonus, this side includes the equally sloppy Skabling, who add surf guitars and a trombone to the instrumental wackiness. Any band who wears tighty-whities on their head in order to make themselves look like goblins deserves respect.
