** "Fallen Angel" and "Burning For You" sound like love songs. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin They aren't.]]

* LongRunner: These guys have managed to last long enough well into the TurnOfTheMillennium, with their last studio album released in 2001 and even then, they continue to do tours and concerts even today. That's pretty impressive for a band that started in the early 70's.

--> ''The candle blew and then dissappeared;''
-->''The curtains flew and then He appeared,''
--> ''Saying "Don't be afraid"''

* AnachronicOrder: ''Imaginos'' is not presented according to the internal chronology of the album's storyline due to ExecutiveMeddling. The album's story, which contains TimeTravel, shapeshifting, the CthulhuMythos, and a number of other supernatural elements, would be confusing enough without the disjointed chronology; the meddling pushed it firmly into MindScrew territory. A possible sequence of the album's events is presented under the ExecutiveMeddling entry.

* GasStationOfDoom: Referenced in the video of "Take Me Away", where the young couple in the car get the first inkling something is not right; the band logo of the hooked cross painted on the petrol station wall is as big a clue as the sinister proprietor.
