So.... Ludo is, like, really Troperrific. Intentionally so. I started a word document to gather all of the tropes I could think of to add to the page. By the time I got to 12, all for one song, with no where near all of the ones in that one song, I started to realize that most of these songs could warrant a page all of there own.

So in the interest of readability, organization, and great justice (and time wasting), I'm thinking the page could be broken down like some TV series are (like Community), except instead of separate pages for episodes we have separate pages for albums, with the tropes for each song listed under each song in order, and the especially trope heavy songs getting lyrical breakdowns like on the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny page. And then the tropes that apply to the band itself and their music in general stays on the main page

This is kind of a big undertaking, especially since most of the tropes aren't even listed on the page yet and the band doesn't have a huge following, so it would go one step at a time, starting with moving the existing tropes for one album to it own page, and then organizing those and adding more tropes song by song.

I'm really only familiar with the last two albums and some of the songs on the earlier ones, so I'll only be doing this for the last two, and maybe Broken Bride once I get around to getting it and have listened to it a few times, so if someone is familiar with the earlier albums and has the motivation/free time/obsessiveness to do pages for those, um, that'd be awesome. Or if once an albums page is up someone just wants to take one song and trope it out. Because it's a lot to do for one person, and even though I have way too much free time on my hands at the moment I don't know how long that'll last, or how long it'll be until my motivation peters out. It'll probably take a long time, is what I'm saying, and the more the merrier.

I'm going to go to do an example troping for Lake Pontchartrain since that's what I have the most tropes for right now and post it here.

Lake Ponchartrain

Come down to Lake Pontchartrain
Rest your soul and feed your brain
That's where you will get to see
We got off on an exit 'cause we couldn't read the map so great
Near the Choctaw Motel, we parked to deliberate
screamin' like a demon at the top of his lungs,

Come down to Lake Pontchartrain
Wade to where the shallows break
That's where you will get to see
Everything the water can be.

Bad move in retrospect, the road disappeared in the rain]]
And I stood on the brakes when I saw the sign: "Lake Pontchartrain"
Darius was yelling that he saw somebody out in the swells
And that's when I heard it, make no mistake
Come down to Lake Pontchartrain... [X4]

The crawfish were screaming, the waves danced in time
I watched in terror, the lake opened wide

Go for it, man, but I would say instead of separate pages for each album, make each album a folder or sub-category on the main page. The Broken Bride could probably use its own page, because it has the most coherent, linking story, but otherwise I think that a folder per album, below the main list of tropes, would be the way to go.
