- Archive Panic: The band's discography.
- Covered Up: Their version of Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren" (done as part of the This Mortal Coil project), is much better known than the original. That is, at least until his son Jeff Buckley had a cult following, causing Tim's cult status to make his version the more well known version again.
- Critical Dissonance: Blue Bell Knoll is a fan favorite, but was trashed by some critics for what they believed was the band repeating its formula.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Pretty much all of Heaven Or Las Vegas, which was written after the birth of Liz Fraser's daughter. Also doubles as Sweet Dreams Fuel.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: Heaven Or Las Vegas, of course. Every song could be talked about here, but a few examples:
- Album opener "Cherry-Coloured Funk", a great introduction to the Sweet Dreams Fuel of the album. And those guitar riffs are beautiful.
- The Title Track, which is Ear Worm incarnate and a perfect showcase of Fraser's Indecipherable Lyrics.
- "Pitch The Baby". That bassline is perfection.
- Album closer "Frou-Frou Foxes in Midsummer Fires" starts out with a beautiful piano riff and sparse percussion, coupled with ambient noise. Liz's voice starts, reverberating through the atmosphere... And then after a minute and a half, those three drum hits. I can't explain it well here, but there are three drum hits that happen right before chorus the song just explodes, with a guitar riff cutting through everything and the incredibly catchy vocals of the chorus, even if you can't completely tell what she's saying.
- Gateway Series: For Dream Pop.
- Sweet Dreams Fuel: "Heaven Or Las Vegas", can also be applied to everything they've done with the exception of Garlands.
- The Woobie: Regardless of how important her vocals were to the band's sound, Fraser's endured probably the most crap during the band's career, and has said that this is the main reason, she hasn't made much music after the band broke up.
