* BlackSheepHit: "Sledgehammer" and "Big Time", in which a singer normally known for combining art rock and world music scores two huge hits with a [[StaxRecords Stax]] soul throwback and a funk-rock tune, respectively. In terms of lyrics, both songs (especially "Sledgehammer") also have a much sillier tone than usual for his music. (His later song "Steam" was deliberately given a similar style to "Sledgehammer" in an attempt to ride on the latter's success.)

* DevelopmentHell: In 2002, Gabriel teased that the next album after ''Up'' could be a double-album of songs named ''I/O''. Consequently, nearly every new song Gabriel has produced to date has been theorized to eventually be included on ''I/O''. Press interviews even up to 2013 toss around I/O as a possible new record title. However, in the fall of 2014, as he continued to record new songs, Gabriel began the dial back the idea of I/O and that the next record could take a different form. The ''I/O'' title, however, has since risen in Gabriel fandom [[Music/GunsNRoses to ''Chinese Democracy'' proportions]], and even has its own page on TheOtherWiki.
