* NewSoundAlbum: To some extent - while not completely without riff-heavy [[TraditionalHeavyMetal early Metal]] and HardRock songs, it downplays them in favor of musically lighter PsychedelicRock and ProgressiveRock songs. [[TropesAreNotBad Notably, this did not make it a bad album by any means, and it's still a well-recieved album, too]].

While it's now regarded as their SignatureSong, "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" was actually somewhat of a BlackSheepHit for the band, as it's [[StepUpToTheMicrophone sung by Buck Dharma rather than regular lead singer Eric Bloom]]. The song is also LighterAndSofter than their usual hard rock. To make matters worse, the song was widely misinterpreted as being a romanticization of suicide, while the band intended it to be a PepTalkSong [[NotAfraidToDie against fear of death]]. Still, it's notorious enough to have become a trope on our site: DontFearTheReaper.

* GeniusBonus: the Tarot card spread displayed by the croupier on the cover spells out the message of ''Don't Fear The Reaper'' - that Death himself cannot separate the love of a man and a woman. This sequence of cards - Death, the Heirophant, the High Priestess and the Sun - also has a definite meaning in esoteric magic. Think ''tantra'' - sex magic.

** Gleefully picked up by Creator/TerryPratchett as the family motto for the Death family in the ''{{Discworld}}'' - ''Non Timetus Messor'' (Have no timidity towards He who collects the harvest.) When Terry became Sir Terry Pratchett, his official coat of arms as a knight adopted the more correct Latin motto '''Noli Timere Messorum''' - ''Don't Fear The Reaper''.
