Really good!!! The guitars, the bass, the drums and vocals all rule on this album. The Offspring are back on form with this cd after the less punk Conspiracy Of One album. The Offspring have also experimented on this album as well with ska punk song The Worst Hangover Ever, and the lyrics in the songs have meaning and a seriousness about them, which The Offspring do best.

Dexters voice is unique, its amazing to say the least, he is a VERY under-rated singer, and song writer, as is Noodles a guitar player and as band, The Offspring are a very under-rated band for (my opinion) pretty Fly For A White Guy being the success it was. Splinter is GREAT!!! This album will gain The Offspring the respect they deserve.
Overall Impression — 10
This album stands up to there old albums totaly! Splinter is great from start to finish, tho it does end a little too soon lasting only 29 minutes. But it doesnt matter as long as The Offspring bring us (The Fans) the goods! And this is album doesnt disappoint!!! YOU WILL LOVE THIS ALBUM!!!
