* It's rare that a musician's decision ''not'' to play can count as a MomentOfAwesome, but Music/BillBruford managed it on the band's live {{improv}}isation "Trio". His decision was credited by the other band members as having a significant impact on the direction of the piece, and he received a composition co-credit for it.

* "Starless", surely a trope codifier for EpicRocking. It starts as a subtle and melancholy PowerBallad in 4/4, then it [[SongStyleShift changes]] into a [[SubduedSection long, quiet, ominous middle section]] in a different key and UncommonTime (13/18, to be precise) with a very minimal guitar part and increasingly edgy drums, then it gets louder and louder until it bursts into crazed sax and guitar solos, still in 13/18 but played much faster, and just when things can't get any more frantic there's a LastChorusSlowDown which coincides with a return to the home key of G minor and CommonTime, and the original Power Ballad melody returns for just one cycle with everyone playing ''incredibly loudly'' - and then it ends.
