3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best, but still some great content. Nov. 20 2005
By Dano
Format:Audio CD
Owning each offspring albumn, I can state that this is not not their best.
Their two top albumns have got to be 'Smash' and 'Conspiracy of One'. Opinions differ on which song of 'Splinter' is the best: I like 'Spare Me The Details' the most, whereas one of my best friends prefers 'Da Hui'. If you're a big offspring fan, this albumn is worth getting your hands on.
If you are not as familiar with this band, only with the single from this albumn, then listen to the tracks before buying.
And Hey, this is the band that had *the most downloaded song on Napster* in 2000: "pretty fly for a white guy". This band has creativity that shows on each albumn.
The special features on this disc aren't the best either. The best are found on 'Americana'. Those movies had us laughing on the floor. CD Extra is brutal though! My cd now looks like a blow torch was taken to the outside, and the data isn't readable anymore. I would advise anyone who may want to check out their CD Extra features more than once to cache them on their Hard Drive and save their CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME July 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
At first, when I bought this CD, I thought the offspring had lost their touch and abilitities (this means i don't think that Americana and Conspiracy of One stink, they are both good albums). I figured that their day was over, or they were just lacking ideas at the time. So I had stowed this CD away in my rack for about two months, then I was bored and just listened to it again, and I was just confused on how I could think this CD ever sucked! The absence of its sound somehow made it better. Its main flaw is that it is pretty short. Here is a rating of all the songs from 1-10.
1. Neocon-Intro, but different from those of the last four CDs. It has real playing and not just pointless talking like "When we're ready to sing, we step up to the microphoones and it comes out something like this" (Intro, from Conspiracy of one) A good buildup to a great CD. 7/10
2. The Noose-One of the best Offspring songs ever, fast-paced and loud. Lyrics are sort of apocylyptic. 11/10
3. The Long Way Home-Sounds Nirvana-ish. Cool. 7/10
4. Hit That-The accompanying single to this CD. Can't classify it into any genre. Pretty cool. Greg K gives a really weird bassline that is tough to play (Yes, I play bass). 10/10
5. Race Against Myself-Poppy, slightly better than mediocre. Sounds better-suited for Americana (genre, not quality). 6/10
6. (Can't Get My) Head Around You- Pretty neat guitar work, especially Noodles' solo with the wah-wah effect. 9/10
7. The Worst Hangover Ever-Ska song. Pretty weird, but fun. I hope this song helps detewr any drinking that may happen in the future.
8. Never Gonna Find Me-One of the fastest Offspring songs. 8/10 The ending transitions to...
9. Lightning Rod-Semi-fast, weird, and for some reason, chills my spine.

4.0 out of 5 stars (Almost) 20 Years and Still Going Strong! July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Offspring formed in 1985, and they are facing the question other "aging" punk-rooted bands (like Green Day and the Chili Peppers) have faced: how to stay relevant and fresh? The Offspring's previous album, 2000's "Conspiracy of One", frankly was not their best, but hey you can't hit a home run (or triple) every at bat.
Fortunately, "Splinter" (12 tracks, 32 min.) finds the Offspring in much better form. It seems the time off since the previous has helped Dexter & Co. te re-energize. The album is full of all-out fun rockers, starting with "The Noose", but also with the single "Hit That". One of my fave tracks is "Race Against Myself", taking its time to reach a more dramatic chorus. "The Worst Hangover Ever" is a fun reggae/ska-flavored track. I don't "get" the closing track "When You're In Prison", which is a 1930-40's send-up, with cracks-in-the-vinyl-sound and all.
Despite the curious last track, "Splinter" is a good album, moving along at a great pace and not once boring. Looks like the Offspring have faced the question on how to stay fresh, and found the answer. In concert, the band still puts on a blazing set, as when I saw them this Spring here in Cincinnati.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Mediocre June 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's been a long while since The Offspring's 2000 album, "Conspiracy of One". The first album I bought by the band was their biggest, "Americana". "COO" was second, then I followed it up by buying all their older releases (I have everyone except their debut, which I plan to get...sometime or another). "COO" was one of my favorite Offspring albums (along with "Smash") so I gues I was expecting more of the same radio-friendly catchy a*s pop punk that album offered. Well, I certaintly got radio friendly pop punk with songs like "Hit That" and "Race Against Myself", but most of these songs aren't as catchy as previous releases's were. A lot of songs sound alike (there's a couple of really fast paced ones that all seem to sound alike). But seriously, what was the band thinking when they wrote "The Worst Hangover Ever"? It's definetly the worst Offspring song ever, and I'm willing to say it's one of the worst songs ever. Seriously, it sucks.
But this album does have a few bright parts. Few. "The Noose" sounds like it could have come off of "COO", and it has a pretty catchy chorus. "Hit That", while the music is goofy as hell, has a catchy drum beat and the keyboards in it are used well. Other notable songs are "Race Against Myself" and "Lightning Rod", as well as the goofy outro track, "When You're in Prison".
But I really don't recommend this album, especially to those looking to just now get into Offspring. Start with some simple "Americana", then get "COO", and get the old albums, then come back here and get this one last. It's really not necessary, but if you need every Offspring album, I guess go ahead.

2.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS NOT GOOD OFFSPRING
It isn't and I do not understand how the same band that released such cds as Smash or Ignition could release this. It has official sellouts written all over it. Read more
