AllMusic Review by

Splinter Test is Genesis P-Orridge and Larry Thrasher (both formerly of Psychic TV). Sixteen other people listed as "voice pathologists" or "staff writers, " including psychedelic beat author Brion Gysin and Howie Pyro (D-Generation). On this CD, "Everything is free, sampling permitted." What we have is an entire CD of wacky, creepy, weird, iconoclastic and funny sound bites of things people have said. Background imperfections add a candid, unproduced feel. Before you lay down your next studio track, take a listen to this. You will find something to sample that is guaranteed to get people's attention. I immediately loaned this to a friend doing some recording.
