** "Karn Evil 9: First Impression" begins by heralding a dark age where "silent children shivered in the cold... their faces captured in the lenses of the jackals for gold", before segueing into "the show that never ends", which is a satirical view of the 20th century as a kind of evil funfair.

* MixAndMatchCritters: According to the [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/5b/ELP_-_Tarkus_%281971%29_LP_inner_gatefold.jpg gatefold]], Tarkus resembles an armadillo-tank creature, fighting off weird enemy creatures like the "Iconoclast" (a pterodactyl crossed with a war airplane) and "Mass" (a cricket-lizard crossed with a lobster and a rocket launcher), before ending with the Manticore itself.

* BlackSheepHit: "Lucky Man" was their first hit, but very atypical of the band. It is a straightforward acoustic-guitar ballad, as opposed to their long winded, keyboard-heavy style. As a result, most following albums had at least one ballad penned by Lake, such as "The Sage", "From The Beginning", "Still... You Turn Me On" and "C'est La Vie", some became black sheep hits in their own right.

* GameBreakingInjury: Emerson's RSI (repetitive strain injury). He was no longer able to play some of the band's songs properly or at all. Didn't stop him from trying, with mixed results.

Emerson's anxiety over his ability to perform for an upcoming tour is believed to have been a factor in his suicide.
