!! ''I want these tropes to get together''
* AlliterativeTitle: "'''R'''ose '''R'''ouge".
* {{Blues}}: "Sure Thing", a melancholic track with a John Lee Hooker sample.
* {{Corpsing}}: "Montego Bay Spleen" ends with laughter.
* DeliberatelyMonochrome and DesignStudentsOrgasm: The cover. An old photograph from the early 1900s, with some color added to it.
* GratuitousFrench: Not exactly gratuitous since this is a French album, but it's notable since they are the only two track titles in French: "Pont des Arts" ("Bridge of Art") and "La Goutte d'Or" ("The Taste of Gold").
* IndecipherableLyrics: "Sure Thing" makes use of a Music/JohnLeeHooker sample, but it's quite difficult to make out what the man is mumbling half of the time. We can make out: "It's so hard, morning, droning, to you-ou, and that ain't right".
* {{Instrumental}}: All tracks are instrumental, save for occassional StudioChatter, laughing and a few throwaway lines. The major exception is "Rose Rouge" with the lines "I want you to get together. Put your hands together one time. I want you to get together" and "Sure Thing" which has a sample of Music/JohnLeeHooker's voice.
* {{Jazz}}: All the tracks have a jazzy feeling, exemplified by trumpets, piano, bass and the like.
* NonAppearingTitle: The album title doesn't appear in any of the tracks of the few lyrics that appear.
* OneWordTitle: "Tourist"
* QuestioningTitle: "What You Think About?"
* {{Sampling}}:
** "Rose Rouge" uses samples from Marlena Shaw's "Woman of the Ghetto" from her album "Live At Montreux". The drum and bass loop are lifted from Dave Brubeck's "Take Five".
** "Montego Bay Spleen" uses excerpts from "First Dangerous Match" from the Scientist album "Scientist Wins the World Cup" and "Laser Attack" from "Scientist Meets The Space Invaders".
** "Sure Thing" has sampled elements from "Windy C" by 100% Pure Poison and "Harry's Philosophy" by Music/MilesDavis and Music/JohnLeeHooker from the soundtrack of the film noir "The Hot Spot" (1990).
* ShoutOut: "Rose Rouge" was featured on the soundtrack of ''Much Ado About Nothing'' (2013) by Creator/JossWhedon.
