I discovered this album via the Pearl Jam website which documents the side projects of the band's members. Drummer Matt Cameron founded Wellwater Conspiracy in 1993 along with other members of his band Hater and they went on to record four studio albums. This eponymous album is their fourth and was released in 2003. The band sound nothing like Pearl Jam or Soundgarden so don't come here expecting more of the same. Track 1 "Wimple Witch" has a 60s feel to it and is a catchy pop/rock song. Cameron's vocals are at times Jagger-esque and he really can sing ! Track 2 "Galaxy 265" recalls the flower-power era before the brooding bass line of "Night Sky" kicks in. For me this is one of the highlights of the album. With a nod back to the 1970s and yet retaining a Seattle sound (so hard to explain!) it shows that this band are a lot more than just a side project. What it lacks in originality the album makes up for in variety. Tracks 4 and 5 "Dragonwyck" and "Sea Miner" have a more contemporary sound while Track 6 "Rebirth" is a little slice of electronica and totally different to the rest of the album. Track 7 is a cover version of "Something in the Air" by Thunderclap Newman from 1969. While faithful to the original for the most part, the band tweak it slightly with a an electronic/drum break half way through. Track 8 "Sullen Glacier" is a great rock instrumental with a Smashing Pumpkins sound to it, while Track 9 "Crow Revolt" makes me think of Crowded House. As I say this album is a real mixed bag! Track 10 "My Darker Bongo" is somewhere between The Rolling Stones and Love before the album closes with the dark instrumental "Dresden Overture" where I'm hearing Pink Floyd and Kid A Radiohead. It's unusual, sometimes trippy, sometimes poppy, sometimes rocky but always really good. Thoroughly recommended.

A step back in the right direction 15 Feb. 2004
By anagramata - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not going to try to fool anyone -- this isn't a CD for the "casual" listener. The only way you're going to like this is if you're truly passionate about what you listen to.
Moving on. Matt Cameron is a drummer, not a vocalist. However, in my opinion, I think he's an awesome singer and pulls it off well. Granted, he's not as powerful as, say, Eddie Vedder or Chris Cornell (the two singers he's worked closest with), but they sure as hell can't drum like he can.
With that aside, I thought that the song selection on here is amazingly strong. I was a bit worried after "The Scroll," but this record is reminiscent of the masterpiece "Operational Directives." Songs like Wimple Witch and Dragonwyck instantly put you in a bouncy trance (no seriously, if you're in a bad mood, Wellwater is the proven cure). Then there are songs like Sea Miner that are just so amazingly beautiful.
Give this cd more than just one listen. Only then will the details pop out at you, and that's the glory that is Wellwater: the simple, yet astounding intricacies.

Excellent Cd 24 April 2004
By Michael E. Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having all the Wellwater cd's released and being very fortunate to see them live once, surprisingly, this is the least assesible cd, it took a few times to really get into it and fully understand what all is going on. In a review I read Matt Cameron as saying this is what Wellwater sounds like without being influenced too much of what we like. If this is what is going to continue, bring it on..
best cd from Matt, Ben, and John yet 4 Oct. 2003
By shmitty01 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After "the scroll", I wasn't sure what to expect from Wellwater Conspiracy. I must say that I am pleasantly surprised with this album. Despite the official status of side project for this band, this is some of the most inventive, original music I've heard in years. Similar to their previous albums, this cd is very experimental. It is all over the place musically. I guess you would expect that coming from these guys. The 60's vibe is very much still there. However, they have begun to touch on a more powerful alternative rock style with this album. The experimentation has become a little more interesting as well. Some of the tracks almost start to border on Radiohead's strange electronic style of Kid A. This album can be summed up as a combo of inde/60's style, a bit of The Doors, some strange groove style that borders on Clutch briefly, a touch of Swervedriver, and the few brief ventures into Radiohead. This could quite possibly be the most diverse collection of musical styles blended together that I have heard in years. This album is a bit more comercially friendly than their previous releases, but that's not a bad thing. So far this year, this is probably the most original and interesting album I have heard.

BEST CD OF THE YEAR! 12 Sept. 2003
By M. Callazzo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wow! This cd is far superior to the last few Pearl Jam cd's. Wellwater Conspiracy has Matt Cameron (Pearl Jam/Soundgarden) and a bunch of other Seattle stars. Every song on this cd is strong and catchy, but yet, it has a very unique sound. This cd is very unusual but is also very compelling and addictive. It runs the gamut of musical genres, from garage rock to straight ahead pop/rock. Without a doubt, this is the cd of the year.

What is up with the recording quality? 18 Feb. 2004
By Casey Cook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I downloaded the songs and really liked them, but I was getting really crummy audio on my computer so I assumed that I had gotten a hold of some bad files. I went ahead and bought it anticipating a much fuller sound on my home stereo. Wrong. And I have some nice Paradigm speakers, a quality Amp, and a pretty nice Rotel CD player. There simply is no excuse for a recording this bad. If they are going for lo-fi, they ended up with much worse, and unprofessional - something that sounds as muffled as the recordings I made on the radio using my boom box when I was a kid. The Strokes managed to score a "lo-fi" sounding album with their first, so it isn't too hard.
What a shame. These songs could really reveal some sonic detail with the right recording. I'm in a strange position here. I REALLY can't recommend buying this disc if you expect any semblance of modern recording quality standards. If you ONLY care about the music, go for it. Wow, I'm not sure what to think.
