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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.

This album is really lame, predictable and boring like...Why buying this album??Published on July 10 2004
The offspring has come out with many good cds. This one is an exception. ITS A GREAT CD. Americana was the first good CD and then Conspirisy of One was just AWESOME. Now this? WOW! Read morePublished on June 30 2004 by jason
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 morePublished on June 25 2004 by payasyouexit
What's the point of a clean version of a CD. It's just stupid. Your kids aren't gonna have nightmares of hearing some "bad" words. Read morePublished on June 15 2004 by Dick H
This album is one of the best I have bought in a very long time. Offspring is one of my favorite bands and they deliver again with Splinter. Read morePublished on June 13 2004
This CD matches up with Americana (which i believe to be a cd of greatness) and destroys their previous venture Conspiarcy of One. Read morePublished on June 13 2004
Intro- Pretty much tell you that the offspring is king 8/10
The Noose-Awsome way to start a cd out! Read more
Like many other people, I got this album for "Hit That", and hoped that the rest would also be good. Read morePublished on June 10 2004 by Amanda Richards
