----
* GratuitousPanning: "Heavy" and "Energy" have this.
* IAmTheBand: Ed Roland is the only member that has been there since 1992.
* LighterAndSofter: Right around ''[[NewSoundAlbum Blender]]''.
* LongTitle: Their debut album ''Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid''.
* NewSoundAlbum: Their first SelfTitledAlbum had them experiment with a pop sound and it became more obvious on ''Dosage'' and later on. ''Afterwords'' contained an indie-esque sound and their second SelfTitledAlbum combined the LighterAndSofter sound of ''Blender'' with the grungy sound of ''Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid''.
* SingerSongwriter: Ed Roland.
* SelfTitledAlbum: Two of them. The 2009 one is sometimes called ''Rabbit''.
