The album features ten songs chosen from more than 30 the band had managed to write during their tour the previous year. Some of the songs left out can be heard in the album Southern Tracks, which was released with limited copies of Time.[6]

The album is also a return to the band's original southern rock roots, after their departure to a grungier style on their previous album. According to their website "with Conspiracy No. 5, we were really setting out to prove something. With Time, we just tried to be ourselves."
