* {{Medley}} or SiameseTwinSongs: Tracks like "The Shrine / An Argument", "I Am All That I Need / I Am All That I Need / Arroyo Seco / Thumbprint Scar", and "Third of May / Ōdaigahara" could be considered examples of one or the other of these. They're each combined together as one track, but many times they feel more like two or more songs stuck together. "Cassius, -" and "- Naiads, Cassadies", on the other hand, is a more clear-cut example of Siamese Twin Songs, though actually, there aren't too many gaps on ''Crack-Up''; the first complete fade to silence is after "Third of May / Ōdaigahara", twenty-seven minutes into the album.

* EpicRocking: While most of their music is more folk than rock, some of their longer songs like "Ragged Wood," "The Plains / Bitter Dancer," and "The Shrine / An Argument" allow more space for soloing and improvisation. Several songs feature [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modulation_(music) modulation]], meaning they feature key changes and seem to have the structure of two songs mashed together.
** The lead single for ''Crack-Up'', "Third of May / Ōdaigahara", tops "The Shrine / An Argument" in length, clocking in at 8:45.

Added DiffLines:

* LoudnessWar: Inexplicably, ''Crack-Up'', at least in its CD edition, clips constantly and has a dynamic range of [=DR6=]. Not the kind of mastering you'd expect for a chilled-out FolkRock band.

* {{Lyrical Dissonance}}: The line "Sunlight over me no matter what I do" from "The Shrine/An Argument" may evoke cheerful thoughts, but the way in which Robin sings it suggests raw anguish. It would almost seem that he's [[{{Light is Not Good}} cursing the sun itself.]]


Added DiffLines:

* {{Driven to Suicide}}: A since-deleted interpretation of the "In the doorway, holding every letter that I wrote/In the driveway, pulling away, putting on your coat/In the ocean, washing off my name from your throat" passage of "The Shrine/An Argument" on a lyrics forum poignantly theorized that the narrator's heartbroken lover ends their own life by driving their car into the sea.
