5.0 out of 5 stars Conspiring brilliance. 18 Dec 2000
By Andy
Format:Audio CD
Not many albums can affect me as much as Squire & Sherwood's "Conspiracy" has done since I bought it. As first glance I will admit it seems to be just a compilation of tracks lifted from different sources "Euphoria", "Union" and "YesYears" to name a few. But if you listen to the album more closely it begins to grow on you as an indipendent work of art. Each track has it's own life to it and in my opinion these original songs contained here are better than the versions found on other albums. For example, "The More We Live" here is much better than the version found on "Union". I couldn't sing this albums prases enough, my only complaint is that my favourite song from this album "Wish I Knew" is not listed and goes on as an untitled bonus track. In my opinion, "Conspiracy" is one of the best solo projects from all of the memebers of Yes and it will take a lot of beating.

2.0 out of 5 stars One incredible track, not a lot else! 10 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Most of the album is uninspired - as if all the energy had been sucked out. The More We Live is better on Union, Love Conquers All better on YesYears. However Violet Purple Rose is possibly the best track from anything Yessy in years. Steve Stevens is guest guitarist - what a difference! Make sure you hear that track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and fresh recording from my favorite Yes member! 5 April 2000
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have really enjoyed listening to this cd over the past week and it makes me realize how much I love Chris Squire's voice. It is great hearing him sing lead on so many songs and I think his collaboration with Billy Sherwood is excellent.
To me, Chris has always been the heart and soul of YES and if you listen to the lyrics of the songs on this album, you can feel the same positive energy that is always pervasive on any YES recording. I'm glad, however, that this recording is un-YES like in many respects because it is fun to hear something new and different.
I hope that Chris and Billy keep up their work together outside YES. Any music from these talented musicians is welcome!
As a side note, the few reviews that I've read that claim that this project is a "money making conspiracy" baffle me. A recording like this is most likely going to receive little promotion or radio airplay, so it is directed at Chris Squire and Billy Sherwood fans. To fault someone for releasing a project that is clearly a labor of love is ridiculous. I eagerly anticipate any side projects that current and former YES members release. As a true YES fan, I try to support all the members in their endeavors so they'll be encouraged to continue to make great music.
Thanks for listening!

3.0 out of 5 stars Conspire for a while 22 Jun 2000
By Scott Law - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
OK, we've heard from the people who love Yes and will give this a chance, and the people who love 90125, and the prog rock elite who believe only an album that sells less than 100 copies has any artistic integrity, but let's let Chris and Billy do the talking. The best part is that we get to hear Chris Squire singing lead for the first time in 20 years! The lyrics are not awe inspiring but they are positive and uplifting. These guys are not afraid to make a catchy song, and so what? Granted, like most true Yes fans, I don't feel the need for pop hits, but remember, if Yes hadn't been somewhat catchy, none of us would have listened. This is basically an album for fans of Squire and Sherwood and the distinctive sound they create whenever they make music together. Thank goodness it is different, thank goodness it goes in a new direction. It is a breath of fresh air.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, what a great abum! 3 July 2000
By "brucewayne" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I didn't hesitate picking this cd up, because I have always thought that Chris is the true backbone of YES. However, after listen to this album, I have even more respect for Billy Sherwood as an all around musical talent. There are some really cool tunes here. 'Conspiracy' reminds me a lot of the days when YES rocked bigtime, back during the Rabin era. I actually enjoyed this album more than the last 2 YES albums. There are a few alternative versions of a couple of 90's YES tunes on the album, and while I'm not going to say they're better than the versions that have appeared on the YES albums, I will say they are just as impressive. Other songs of note are 'Days of Wonder' which is reminiscent of something from the YES album 'Open Your Eyes'. My current favorite track is 'Violet Purple Rose' which sounds a little like 'Make It Easy' from the YES BoxSet 'Yes Years' (origanally recorded for 90125) .... awesome bass here and throughout. Billy and Chris definitely show their talents both instrumentally and vocally on this gem. YES solo album? More like a YES album .... and a great one at that!

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as one could have expected... 4 April 2000
By John Keegan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is about as good as one could have expected given its long and tortured history. Chris and Billy have been working on these songs for the last decade, and it shows. There are songs that go back to the pre-Union days of Yes, all the way up to a few years ago around the time of Open Your Eyes.

Just for those who want to believe that this album is a quick "commercial" attempt, this has been struggling to get distributed for some time now. It will not be making millions for Chris and Billy, as it is more of a labor of love.

If you are the type of Yes fan that demands that everything sound like Close to the Edge or Fish Out of Water, don't bother getting this album. However, if you appreciate different styles of music created by artists you respect, this might be for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars New, exciting. positive and challenging-- OPEN YOUR EARS 4 April 2000
By Kevin P. Dolan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't want this space to become a Yes fans' debate site, but PLEASE stop whining about how this isn't FISH OUT OF WATER II. It was never supposed to be, just like OPEN YOUR EYES was not originally supposed to be a Yes album! This is Chris AND Billy Sherwood (Billy was about 10 when FOOW was released). A fairly crucial difference there. WHY I LIKE THIS ALBUM: I like 80's Yes, and I liked OPEN YOUR EYES. If you have to compare this to something, then there you go. But this is good music on its own terms. Chris' voice is intriguing at the forefront-- it's the one thing that got me into Yes 15 years ago. The lyrics are not great, but they're honest and positive. The arrangements are also good, and NOT commercial. Those of you who call it commercial must not listen to the radio much... no one else puts these chords together. It's daring music, but definitely accessible. There are flaws. First, Chris and Billy probably should have had someone else produce it-- it could use better "editing." Second, the old songs featured here have not been improved, particularly "Love Conquers All," a beautiful song that now sounds as if written and played by cave men (Jimmy Haun's guitar solo is terrible-- he should be suspended from playing for thirty days). Oh, yeah, did I mention the lyrics? Kind of... well, oblique, to say the least! But the songs are all really good. It takes a few listens to catch up with you, but if you are as much a Chris Squire fan as you are a Yes fan, you WILL enjoy this album. Favorites: "Days of Wonder," "Violet Purple Rose," "Lonesome Trail" and "Watching the World," just to name a few. Purchase and enjoy-- it doesn't sound like anything else out there. Not even Yes. Just two guys making THEIR music for themselves and anyone else who'd like to listen.
