I would like to say that I am very disappointed with the new album.

I have been an Offspring fan for about 12 years now (Around Ixany).

When I first heard this album It gave me something to relate to. A sense of escapism from the real world. Letís put it this way, the music was inspiring, meaning full, aggressive and fucking grate.

I have set Ixnay as a benchmark for other albums to reach. After years of waiting and 4 albums later the offspring have disappointed not just me and millions of other people, but themselves as well(I Hope). If youíre reading this, just cut the crap and get on with it. To be honest Iím fed up with this commercial crap!

The Offspring have just lost it and Iím fed up of waiting for something good to come out musically.

I donít actually think The Offspring listen to any of their own stuff man. How can they? Because usually you are influenced by what you listen to I think they might have listened to who? A mixture between Greenday and Kylie Minogue? Actually there stuff isnít even that good.

Please promise me ďOffspringĒ, that you will not bring out another album. Just give up because youíve lost it. Absolute shame upon you!

Come on guys hop onboard my ship of disgust.

Actually, the majority of people on here think this is the best album they've done in a while which means they've really only disappointed a handful of their fans, while probably winning a few new ones in the process.

Most bands don't put themselves in heavy rotation in their cd player/ipod/whatever so I'm not sure why you're complaining that they don't listen to themselves. Also, Kylie Minogue?

Where is your proof? Have you performed a poll of over one million people? This claim is unsubstantiated.


A mixture between Greenday and Kylie Minogue? Actually there stuff isnít even that good.
The grammatical error in that last sentence aside - these are two of the dumbest comments I've ever heard.

Dude, you've come to the wrong place to critisize an Offspring record. Especially when it's new. In my opinion, you've wasted about 5 minutes of your life typing that stuff, cause nobody is going to hop on board and you'll only get flamed for having an opinion which differs from the majority here.

No. He registered on this forum just to complain. The fact that he only has one post proves that. Now, it would've been different if he had over a 1,000 posts and said that stuff, but just the fact that he registered only to complain, that just fucking twists my balls.

Commercial crap? WTF? Tell me that you are not another one who is accusing them of selling out now, when they have been on a MAJOR LABEL since IXNAY (calling them a sell-out is the most stupidest fucking dumb thing, which is so stupid that it would lost "the most stupidest fucking thing to say" competition, because it would be too dumb). Plus they SAID they don't make music for money any more. I wouldn't flame you if you wouldn't support your opinion with such stupid facts.

And just like you he managed to do it in a doucebaggy way. Also, just like you, he didn't really support why he disliked it, but merely stated that he hated it.

However, unlike you, he makes more sense. Based merely on the fact that he is not you.

pwned = owned.

As you may notice, P and O are next to each other on the keyboard.

"pwned" is making fun of a spelling error which is common among gamers.

"Owned" means that you got.. Well.. Owned..

You fighting seven pro wrestlers. They break your spine 100 times. You just got owned, or pwned. get it?

Kylie Minogue? Wtf?!

Are you on crack? I'm not trying to jump on you for your opinion, but if you think any of the new album sounds like Kylie Minogue, then your opinion is pretty much void, and should be insulted by everyone.

I think people need to stop comparing this album to what they think it sounds like, and fucking listen to it and enjoy what it sounds like on its own. It's not Green Day. It's not MCR. It's not Kylie Minogue (Again, wtf?!). It's not your neighbour scratching his balls with his spatula. It's The Offspring. Music that they made themselves. If some influence inserted itself in there, then so what? The problem is, some of you just label the album as an influence you don't want to hear, just so that you still look cool and can say that you don't like slower songs because that's what's popular.

It's shocking that The Offspring has come a long way from the over-saturated, commercial sounds of 'Conspiracy of One' and are showing more energy than ever, and people can only think of some stupid Green Day sound that shows up very briefly. The biggest request before this album came out was less jokey songs. But now that we have, like, two slower songs, the album is no good. So I guess the album after this will need no joke songs or slow songs. Wait, but then all the songs will sound the same because they'll all be mid-tempo to fast songs. Well, shit.

I'm not trying to say you can't like the slower songs. Let's face it, they do drag the album down, but there's really only 2 of them. A Lot Like Me is barely slow.

The comparisons on this record are ridiculous. Listen to it for what it is, not for what it may sound like from the perspective of another artist. You're ruining the experience yourself.

I guarantee you, if they posted their review in the proper thread ("Write your own review..") 90% of the people here would have ignored it, but they choose to draw attention to themselves by creating their own, unnecessary thread. And again, the fact that it was their first post didn't help matters either...

It is about HOW you criticize the album, not about allowing critics or not. And like 99.99% of haters-newcomers here post nothing that makes sense.

And what about first 4 songs + Stuff Is Messed Up? to me they sound pretty Offspring-ish, so RAFRAG is not made completely of non-oldschool-offspring stuff. And yeah.... After S/T there was Ignition that sounded like non-offspring stuff. After Ignition there was Smash that sounded somewhat different again. Then Ixnay. Then Americana.... You can't really decide how does it sound in a moment. Only after a year or two. If you do, then prepeare to repeat such thing when the next album will come.

Now, I've been a fan, for a LONG time now, the band has truly inspired me in the past and the music was superb, so yes, I have the right to come here with my negativeness, they changed, they disappointed, after so long waiting, after a very short Splinter with almost no taste, I was expecting something big.

Most of the idiots fully behind the new album are new kids who know nothing about The Offspring...

"they sound like greenday" is a pretty good argument if you ask me.

Can all of you dick rider fanboys take it easy?

The new album isn't The Offspring, it has nothing from them, it's a new thing, some like it, some don't.

We have the same right as you to come here and speak our mind, I don't like the album and it will take more then some enraged emo kids in a forum with "I H8U" lines to stop me from saying this.

I want to see good music from them again, I'm still a fan, so please, retards, don't tell others to shut up just because you have wet dreams with Dexter.

Well if you read my post properly you would know that I never said shut up
to him or replying in a harsh way,just suggested to write a constructive criticism.
Of course you have the right to not like the album and speak up,but wasting time just to create a new thread to say how the new album sucks is ridiculous and thats the reason why many people reacted like this way,because there's another thread called write your own review.
If you don't like it feel free to speak up,I'm not trying to convince anybody,I've written down my thoughts about this just like you.

Well then that just means that you don't really seem to support them. You just think it's about you. They're the band, they don't have to do something BIG just because you think Splinter sucked. Don't take it out on the band just because your personal expectations weren't fulfilled.

Oh, and please don't tell me that you're referring to me with that "kids who know nothing about The Offspring", because I know atleast as much as you do, if not more.

I can see it. I'm serious (not being sarcastic). I got your point & I think you're right. In most of it.

And let's see it this way: This is a forum. Everybody is able to express their feelings. We don't feel the same, we don't think the same. But it's pointless to open a stupid thread everytime someone needs to bash on the new album. It's dumb & make those same people look like attention whore's. It seems that they are actually looking for things like this one to happen.

I don't want to start any fight in here or something but there's somethin calle "to give your opinion" and another one called "to give your opinion in a dumb way & to look like an attention whore". Guess which one started this.

Seriously, Hypodermic_89 owned u guys plenty for now. Go do something useful with your time kkthx.

The new album is different from others, just like every other album The Offspring made is different from each other. Please do me a favor and name 2 albums that sound roughly the same to any of their other albums.

Sure, they have some songs that have the same concept. But that doesnt mean that Trust in you is exactly the same as Smash. Or that Rise and fall is a 100% cover of American Idiot.

The new album is fine. It has some really good songs, it has songs that are fast, slow , angry or sensitive. Its a good mix of old style Offspring, and a newer more mature style. It also has some songs that could be called filler's, but in the end all the songs on the album are solid and unique on the album. Lyrically the album is really strong, guitaring is awesome, drumming is excellent and Dexter uses every bit of his voice spread out over the album.

All in all an excellent album, if you dont like it thats your choice. But please, if you really want to bash on the album do it in a constructive way. I cant imagine that u hate every song, and that u dont like even a couple of the songs. If thats so, u stopped being an Offspring fan a long time ago and probably moved on to other bands. Your choice, but dont bash Dexter and his crew for it.

This is pissing me off to no end. Both sides of the argument are acting completely ridiculous.

If you like the album, good for you! I love the album myself but I don't feel the need to act childish to everyone who doesn't like it. No need to call everybody a "whiner" or something else because they disagree with you.

If you DON'T like the album, be civilized about everything you say. Just because YOU don't like it, it doesn't mean that your word is gospel and if someone disagrees with you, it's wrong.

WebbyDude, in your two posts you have proved that you have nothing constructive to say except that the album sucks and we all suck for liking it. If you are going to post a negative review, do it in the proper place. It has been said before, but if you posted this in the stickied thread, then most people would either ignore this post or discuss it with you in a civilized manner.

You people ALL need to realize that the 1st Amendment DOES NOT EXIST in these forums. The freedom of speech goes to the publisher, not the writer. In this case, the publisher is The Offspring BBS admin, who is represented through the moderators (who have been EXTREMELY nice to everyone who has been acting like a prick lately). You DO NOT have the right to post whatever you want here. If they so choose, the mods/admins could easily delete all of your posts and ban your account with no rights infringements whatsoever. If they wanted to, they could only allow discussion of the new album in a positive manner, but they have been ridiculously leanient toward everybody, even the most harsh critics of them. Be grateful for what you are allowed to say and do EVERYONE the favor of posting in a mature fashion in the proper location (i.e. stickied threads for reviews). Frankly, I'm surprised THIS thread still exists because it breaks so many rules in the offspring.com/forums guidelines.

Quoted for truth. You're all free to voice your opinions, as long as you do it in a constructive and thoughtful way. Creating several pointless threads that are all the same, is just silly. Voice your opinion where it counts "ie the review thread". And to be honest, if you don't like the new album, why waste your time coming to GOD? Obviously the discussions are going to be focused on the new album, why is there a need to create this sentiment of negativity? Go outside, or read a book, bitching over the internet never solved anything.


Most of the idiots fully behind the new album are new kids who know nothing about The Offspring...

uhhh I love the album and I've been a fan since Americana(which,to "the new kids",i don't feel makes me better than any of you). I think I know enough to make it count.and by the way, what the hell! One would think an INSPIRED "..FAN,for a long time.." would be a bit more appreciative.

Well strip me down and call me sparky, apparently 21 is the new 9.

I'm fully behind the new album and I'm 21 years old and enjoy the bands entire discography (with the exception of S/T...I find it grating).

So, what I'm saying, is try another argument.
