* SiameseTwinSongs: Most of Side 1, the first three songs on Side 2, "Lilywhite Lilith" into "The Waiting Room", "Anyway" into "Here Comes the Supernatural Anaesthetist", "The Light Dies Down on Broadway" into "Riding the Scree", and "In the Rapids" into "''it.''". (So, roughly half the album, then).

* {{Instrumentals}}: "Hairless Heart", "Silent Sorrow in Empty Boats", "Ravine". "Broadway Melody of 1974" isn't ''supposed'' to be, but thanks to an indexing error on most CD versions of the album, it often is. (It's ''intended'' to [[LyricalColdOpen start with the line]] "Echoes of the Broadway Everglades", which is indexed on most CD versions as part of "Fly on a Windshield").

* LyricalColdOpen: "Broadway Melody of 1974" is ''supposed'' to start with the line "Echoes of the Broadway Everglades", although thanks to an indexing error on most CD versions of the album, it often doesn't. It's debatable whether this is a straight example of this trope due to SiameseTwinSongs.

* GainaxEnding: "''It''" doesn't seem to be about anything clearly related to the story, but the end of the story in the liner notes is pure crazy. [[spoiler: Rael saves his brother John's life only to discover that he and John are actually the same person, they have an out-of-both-bodies experience, they are "outlined in yellow," and ''they and the scenery melt into purple haze.'']] Figure ''that'' one out.

** This troper was under the impression that it was referring to being frozen in dust during the song "Fly on a Windshield". How close is 22nd Street to Times Square?
*** Not very. Times Square is at the intersection of Broadway and 46th Street. Broadway crosses 22nd further to the south, at Madison Square Park.
