** Well, ''Pictures at an Exhibition'' has a voice clip of one of them dropping the title of the piece.

* BookEnds: A likely unintentional example. Their first major concert, the Isle of Wight Festival, began with a rendition of "Rondo", a piece Keith Emerson had originally played with the Nice. Fast forward 40 years to what ended up being their final concert. Yep, they played "Rondo" together one last time to finish out the concert.

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Could get anywhere from a 1 (Lake's ballads) to, arguably, about a 7 or 8 ("Toccata", "Karn Evil 9: 3rd Impression"), which is interesting as the band doesn't even use electric guitars much. It's mostly done with Lake's MetalScream and organs/synthesizers. Overall they're probably mostly in 3-5 territory, but, as with many ProgressiveRock bands, they're difficult to classify due to their inclusion of many segments of varying hardness in most of their lengthiest songs.

(Some listeners have cited "The Barbarian" as an example of proto-DoomMetal; towards the end, it also contains extensive use of blast beats, which were quite unusual in the early '70s.)

* FullCircleRevolution: According to Lake, this is a theme of "Tarkus": "The words are about revolution that's gone, that has happened. Where has it got anybody? Nowhere."

--> Clear the battlefield and let me see
--> All the profit from our victory.
--> You talk of freedom; starving children fall.
--> Are you deaf when you hear the season's call?

--> Were you there to watch the earth be scorched?
--> Did you stand beside the spectral torch?
--> Know the leaves of sorrow turned their face,
--> Scattered on the ashes of disgrace.

* RockMeAmadeus: {{Trope Codifier}}s. Arguably around half their material consists of direct adaptations from the classical repertoire.
