* ShortLivedBigImpact



* TechnologyMarchesOn: "Bad Connection" - the narrator can't get in touch with her lover because the phone lines are down. What really puts it in a bygone age is the suggestion that she "ought to write a letter instead".
* ThrowItIn: "In My Room" has some random StudioChatter at the end.

* OneSceneWonder: Alison's mum puts in a memorable appearance on "I Before E Except After C". They have her reading what sounds like the instructions for some of their studio equipment and she clearly has no idea what it's all about. And then she does that brilliant "I'm allllll... riiiight" and a laugh at the end.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenRecord: The second half of "Bring Your Love Down (Didn't I)" is just repetitions of the title and the phrase "All night".

Added DiffLines:

* VocalDissonance: Alison's voice is so deep, it's not uncommon for people hearing Yazoo to assume the singer is male.
