* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: ''Automaton''. Though, given the lyrics suggest the point of view of an android or other synthetic being, pronouncing it "auto-MAY-ton" is likely a deliberate thematic choice.


Added DiffLines:

** It's been seven years since the last album and ''Automaton''. The title song's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmlmOk4ubcU video]] shows a new NiceHat, incorporating LEDs and ''moving fins''!

* LoudnessWar: To an extent, especially on A Funk Odyssey, where the multitracks were actually delivered clipped and distorted. This is particularly obvious when hearing a track like Main Vein and any of its remixes, where the distorted vocals stand in contrast to the usually well produced backing tracks.

* UrbanLegend: A Funk Odyssey's Test Pressing version syncs up perfectly with ''Film/TwoThousandAndOneSpaceOdyssey''. The final version of the album doesn't, due to removing interludes, shortening songs, and adding "Love Foolosophy" (a newly written song for a single) in place of "Do It Like We Used To Do", which Sony insisted on. It is highly likely this was intentional, because of the album title and the various homages to the movie featured on it. The album's title, which at that point was 2001: A Funk Odyssey before Sony made them cut it down. The album also includes a song called Twenty Zero One, and one of the interludes on the test pressing was The Blue Danube waltz - taken directly from the soundtrack to ''Film/TwoThousandAndOneASpaceOdyssey'', which the band also used as a live interlude too. The band's idea of syncing the album is believed to have been done in reference to the similar theory of Pink Floyd's Music/TheDarkSideOfTheMoon syncing up with Film/TheWizardOfOz.
