- Broken Base: A perennial debate among fans and critics—which version of the album was better? Many people think the released version is flawless. Others prefer the Three Chords and the Truth feel of the New York version. And it extends to the individual songs as well. Most everyone agrees that re-recording "Lily, Rosemary & the Jack of Hearts" was a good call (the New York take is kind of tedious), but there's plenty of discussion about the other remakes.
- Magnificent Bastard: In "Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts", the Jack of Hearts comes off as one. He shows up, charms Lily away from the most powerful man in town, gets involved with her, survives a murder attempt from Jim, joins back up with his comrades who successfully pulled off a bank robbery, makes off with the money, and is gone from town the next morning just in time to avoid facing any consequences.
