Third Day
Conspiracy No. 5



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 13 tracks: 57 minutes, 16 seconds
Street Date: August 27, 1997


Third Day's sophomore album Conspiracy No. 5 is very different musically and lyrically in comparison to their self-titled debut last year. Most of the songs on their debut were a couple years old when released, making room for change and maturity by the time their second record released. Conspiracy No. 5 is more electric, more edgy, and more alternative, with less of the southern folk rock that the debut offered. However, one thing that hasn't changed is Mac Powell's unbelievable vocal talents.

Another change to note is that there is really only one true ballad on Conspiracy No. 5. While the band's self-titled debut contained several, here it's only the last song, "Your Love Endures," which is reminiscent of "Love Song" or "Praise Song," but is presented more stripped down and acoustic. "I Deserve?" starts off giving the listener the impression they're in for a ballad, but when the drums and electric guitars suddenly kick in, cranking things up considerably, it adds a sonic power to strengthen the emotion of the track. Another major highlight is "You Make Me Mad," a moody electric song inspired by the feelings a song can stir within a listener - whether welcomed or not.

An incredible collection of songs, Conspiracy No. 5 is a rock album well worth checking out, even if you didn't really care for their debut.
