AllMusic Review by

For most of the early '80s, Barnes & Barnes were the kings of Dr. Demento novelty rock, and Voobaha was their definitive album, a collection of wacky, off-kilter pop ditties that are either laugh-out-loud hysterical or nerve-shatteringly irritating, depending on your point of view. As much as any of their collections, Voobaha is the definitive Barnes & Barnes experience, containing not only the notorious "Fish Heads," but also "Sewey Hole," "The Vomit Song," "Boogie Woogie Amputee," "I Hope She Dies," "Gumby Jaws Lament," "De Pumped Out Blues," "Party in My Pants," "High School Gym," "Three Drunk Newts," "Neanderthal Love," "Please Squeeze My Knee Louise," and "Boogie Woogie Amputee [Early Version]." If you found the titles funny, or if you liked "Fish Heads," you'll find the songs funny. If the titles seemed stupid to you, you're not gonna like this.
