Goblin is the second studio album by Odd Future leader Tyler, The Creator. It was released in 2011 by Recordings. The album's production came almost entirely from Tyler himself, along with contributions from fellow Odd Future member Left Brain. Goblin continues Tyler's dialogues with his fictional therapist Dr. TC, first heard on Bastard.

The album was preceded by singles "Sandwitches", featuring Hodgy Beats, "Yonkers", "She", featuring Frank Ocean and "Bitch Suck Dick", featuring Jasper Dolphin & Taco. The single "Yonkers" is considered responsible for garnering the significant internet and industry buzz surrounding the OF group at the time of the album's release.

The album cover features Buffalo Bill at age 19. - Wiki

“Goblin picks up where Bastard left off, as Tyler continues to duke it out with his therapist. Yet while Bastard maintained a certain sonic reserve that kept it grounded, Goblin spirals out of control into rebellious perversity. While Tyler, the Creator’s never been known to shy away from lyrical excess, Goblin revels in its absurd extremes and strives to put its listeners in a state of calculated discomfort. Tracks like “Radicals,” “Tron Cat”  and “Sandwitches” lash out with anarchic discordance that put the listener on edge. Even the more subdued songs like “She”  with Frank Ocean and the brilliant “Yonkers” embody Tyler’s middle-fingers-up attitude, as he twists perverted tales of stalking girls and “stabbing Bruno Mars in his goddamn esophagus” into anathematic odes to unbridled individualism. OFWGKTA’s fuck-all attitude may disassociate some listeners looking for friendly fare, but for those hell-bent on deconstruction and sonic disorder, Goblin will come as a sigh of relief.” - Hip Hop DX
