- Awesome Music: Lots of it. The albums Ys and Have One on Me in particular (as well as the EP released between them) have a bountiful supply, but her early releases have plenty of gems as well.
- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "Emily" is a touching affirmation of sisterly love, and "Esme" is a song written for a newborn baby.
- Even Better Sequel:
- Fridge Brilliance: Once you figure out that "Colleen" is about a young mermaid or sea-nymph who doesn't remember who she is, every word in the song makes sense.
- Why would Monkey even care what the villagers would say about Bear if they saw her bathing? Because in treating Bear like his slave, Monkey is slowly becoming like a human himself.
- Squick: From "Only Skin", we have the lines "Scrape your knee, it is only skin/Makes the sound of violins"
